I'm very sad to say, this was a real bummer for restaurant week. We went 9/28, the second night of RW. To begin we were seated on the indoor patio which was VERY loud. I had issues hearing our server and conversations at our own table. Our server, Brian, was very nice and attentive...and also very apologetic about the fact that Subito was out of two of the dishes we wanted. One was the Osso Bucco, not on the RW menu, the other was Canoli's, one of the two RW desserts...to which they did not make a replacement. Overall it was a bit underwhelming. Whamp Whamp.

Subito has good food, but not great. The beef carpaccio needed salt, the Cacio e Pepe had too thin of noodles and the coffee ice cream was a let down. Our waiter was excellent but water should have been refilled more quickly, especially considering there were multiple water boys asking which of the three waters we would like. We also waited way too long for the dessert. The lobby however of this hotel is gorgeous, so I will be back but probably not to eat but to get drinks at the bar or the rooftop patio.

Amazing service, the space itself is great. Food is very good, minor issue with our steaks that they handled. New restaurant working out a few kinks but, an overall excellent addition to the Cincinnati culinary scene.

OMG even better than the first time
Serena was fantastic server

The salads very fresh
The pasta & scampi outstanding
The scallops with Brussels sprouts special were over the top
Cannolis are awesome!

At vista I felt like a VIP. Kyle took me & my guests to our table & handled us with white glove service.

I’ll be back again!

This was our first visit to Subito and it immediately became one of our favorite restaurants in Cincinnati. The food and service were impeccable! It's exciting to see regional homemade pasta dishes like Cacio e Pepe available locally. It's something I enjoy when I travel to Italy and Subito's version tasted like I was in Trastevere! A special thanks to Kyle Goebel for taking good care of us! It's customer service like yours that will guarantee our return! Thank you!

Really enjoyed this new gem in Cincinnati. I will say that I am a huge fan of live music and that definitely is what resulted in my ambiance score being a 5 star. They had a several piece live jazz group playing that was great. I had a special for dinner that was also superb. Our servers were very good. I do think they are working on a few kinks on the service side as a newer restaurant/staff. However, I still think service was much better than most restaurants. This was a business dinner with a client and we both greatly enjoyed it. Definitely a new place to try in Cincinnati. Excited to also experience the rooftop lounge of the hotel.

Beautiful ambiance and the best fine dining cuisine in all of Cincinnati! The pasta was made fresh that day and you could tell. I highly recommend the bolognese and carbonara. Simple dishes that are taken to the very next level. While you are at it, make sure to save room for the steaks - you can thank me later for the tip. From service, to speciality made cocktails, perfectly prepared meals and amazing ambiance... Subito is everything and so much more!

Beautiful upscale restaurant and bar with dramatic architecture, fabulous decor and lighting. Good and service were good. The only negative was the extremely loud and annoying piano player/singer that played constantly for the 2 1/2 hours we were there. Please turn down the volume so that we can have a conversation without yelling! The rooftop bar was beautiful and large with ample seating, fireplaces and a great view and ambience. We will return for the rooftop bar but not the restaurant/ lobby bar unless the piano player/ singer is eliminated or the sound is teduced

The Northern Italian offerings were what drew us to this menu. Our four course meal was delicious. Highly recommend any of the house made pastas and our medium rare sirloin was cooked to perfection (medium rare). The service provided by Matt was superb! Our compliments to the chef!
Will definitely be back!

Here once for drinks on the rooftop, saw the restaurant on our way out and decided we had to come back. Just like everyone else has mentioned, the ambiance/atmosphere is nice. The service great. The food unfortunately, was average for us.

We sat in the covered semi-outside area which was comfortable and looks out to the park and back into the city. It was Friday night so maybe should have been expected, but it was extremely loud. But overall nice.

The food though. The lamb chops were probably the best thing we had however it was a very small portion. The filet was quality but not much flavor. We also had the jump shrimp as an appetizer. Not fresh at all and you can judge the value for yourself from the picture.

Will go back from drinks and to take in the atmosphere both downstairs and on the roof but will do that before or after dinner somewhere else.

The noise level overwhelmed the food and the service. Dooley at every table were shouting at each other to be heard. We sat on the enclosed terrace and the sound reverberated. The pianist/ vocalist was miked through to the terrace and the volume was deafening. In addition for some reason the noise from the bar and interior dining room also came through the sound system. It spoiled what would have been a very enjoyable dinner.

Beautiful atmosphere and very attentive service by every staff member. The rooftop bar is one of, if not the best, in Cincinnati. Service, cleanliness, wine/cocktails were all top notch. The food was good, it just wasn’t over the top or wow like everything else we experienced. There is tough competition in the Italian food scene in Cincinnati, and as foodies, the food just wasn’t superior to other places we also enjoy.

Staff was very kind and accommodating. Bar seemed to be backed up while we were eating dinner and had to wait a while for our order. Some of the seafood was not very fresh and pasta dishes lacked flavor. Steak was fantastic, highly recommend the filet. Dining space by the entrance to the kitchen was a bit dark - would have preferred to sit in the other area with the big windows.

I could not recommend Vista and Subito more!! We had our anniversary dinner at Subito, and enjoyed drinks at Vista beforehand. We did have to wait a while for food at both places, but our service was beyond exceptional. Abigail made us feel like royalty, and my boyfriend and I had the best dinner experience of our lives. We felt as though we were on a little getaway yet with the beautiful views of Cincy. The ambience was breathtaking, service kind, attentive, and professional, and the food was absolutely delicious! We absolutely will be back, and hopefully stay the night at the hotel! Thank you so much, Lytle Park Hotel!

We had a great dinner at Subito. It is pricey considering some of the smaller portions, but well worth it. It was a great atmosphere and the rooftop bar is a must after finishing dinner. (Although we forgot about the 10pm limit on alcohol sales.) Definitely worth a visit!

DINNER DATE WITH MY BEST GAL PAL, not first time in, NOT LAST

FOOD included perfectly cooked 8oz filet customized shrimp scampi style, two also perfectly cooked scallops (off menu), and a side of their house made angel hair pasta, ALSO perfectly cooked.
BURRATA SALAD should be renamed HALF BURRATA SALAD as the beautiful burrata was only half, already sliced and oozing all over the plate before it got to the table.
Personally, the best part of a burrata is cutting into it to reveal that CREAMY CENTER...


SERVICE from IAN who was phenomenal.
I’ve had THE PLEASURE to be served by him several times now- he consistently gives great recommendations by bottle. Also noteworthy they do 6 AND 9 OZ POURS OF ALL WINE BY THE GLASS 👏🏻
IAN has tons of menu knowledge and has been there since they opened. If it’s your first time in and you’re looking for an extra special time ASK FOR IAN, you’ll be glad you did.
