    Our first time there. Very good food. Very loud and small so you are very close to the table next to you. The service was good and attentive. The shrimp capellini was very good and my BF like the bolognese. We will be back!

    What a wonderful experience we had! The food was delicious. I started with the arugula salad and had the ziti puttanesca for my entrée. I also had the banana and caramel dessert. My friend loved the corn chowder, which was a special and she had the sausage cavatelli. It is a relatively high noise level, but it didn’t matter. The food and service were both excellent. Note that this is a BYOB.  I can’t wait to go back!

    Before I get into my review, I would like start with calling out the waitress, as she friendly and was trying her best, the obstacles we encountered were not due to her ability to provide service. Our issues began when we started to order beverages and our meal. First, we were surprised to learn that the restaurant didn’t have coke or even ice available. It felt like an essential part of the dining experience was missing. Perhaps they could expand their beverage options and ensure they always have ice on hand. This is the most basic request. We noticed other veal dishes listed, so we asked if the chef could prepare veal parm instead of chicken parm. Unfortunately, we were told it wasn’t possible. It would have been great if the restaurant could be more flexible with substitutions, especially considering the existing veal options. Next, we ordered “chocolate” cake which was soaked in some syrupy flavoring and it was not good nor chocolate in flavor. Perhaps, they could better represent the cake. Overall, had we not an a guest with mobility issues we would of gone to another restaurant. Especially as we were celebrating that guest birthday.

    Food was delicious….the cream of mushroom soup was so good. The burrata was another excellent choice. I had the papperdale with fungi it was so good. The tiramisu was light, fluffy and tasted homemade. Definitely will be back.

    Our meal was amazing. My husband and I both got the dinner specials. One was a pasta dish and the other was a fish dish. Both very good. We were greeted within a few minutes of sitting down. The service was excellent. The place is small and the tables are close to each other. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and would definitely return!

    Very small place. Had to wait 20 minutes past reservation for table. Food and service were excellent. Service also excellent. I’m vegetarian. Chef Made me a vegetarian pasta primavera with my choice of sauce. Only issue was noise but this seems to be everywhere these days. Highly recommend.

    I recently had lunch at Via 417, and the craving for Risto led me to another amazing dining experience. Although it's a bit out of my usual route, the culinary mastery at Via 417 makes it worth the detour. It's challenging to find a place that truly understands the art of crafting Risto, and these guys exceeded my expectations. I can't recommend them enough!

    We went for the 1st time on a Sunday night. This was a gift certificate we received for Christmas. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will definitely go back and next time bring friends. We are all foodies, so whenever one of us finds a good place we share. It is a BYOB as well which is even better.

    Great food. There were 3 of us and we had the Veal 417 which was delicious, the salmon on pesto cream and the Papardella Bolognese . I have tried several items and found them all served hot and fresh. We were a bit late being seated bc they were very busy but they really try to keep you as close as they can to your reservation. Service is always great.

    My wife and I had dinner at Via 417 last night to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The staff were kind, pleasant and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. We had octopus and a beet salad for starters which were wonderful and our entrees were exceptional. I had the Cavetelli with sausage. It was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. I highly recommend this restaurant, both for it's wonderful service and exceptional flavors.
