    A great neighborhood gem with attentive, friendly staff who serves food that melts in your mouth. I recommend the branzino. It's huge amd it looks tasty. My friends who ordered gave it two thumbs up. I plan to order when I dine here again.

    If it wasn’t for the food. I would not recommend this place. The service was horrible. It wasn’t busy. And we waited for like 15/20 mins to just order drinks… finally ordered food and received food and we were being watched as if something was wrong. Just didn’t feel comfortable eating here. But the food was amazing. Had pizza and it wa so good. So we over looked the experience. But not sure I would visit again unless I was doing take out.

    The food is good and the place is really cute. It's nice for a group of friends or for date night. The Cacio e Pepe pasta and Cavatelli were perfectly al dente and tasty. The steak with green pepper is the reason why we keep going back, it's really delicious! We wish the patate al forno were more traditional and we highly recommend the gianduia bar. Overall, it's a really good place. The only thing I would say is that the service could be better. Granted that COVID has made it hard for businesses to find and retain staff, the service seemed a bit rushed, albeit I could see that the staff were doing their best. We were given no time in between courses, and although the restaurant was half empty, that made us feel like we were being rushed out. Maybe they could try spacing the courses a little bit so that everything is not so rushed.

    I chose the resturant based on location and menu and unfortunately the two choices I had set my heart or tummy on were not being served. The led me to only having an order of mussels which were tasty with the sauce and bread. Drinks were good as well as the service. I decided however to go again I will stick with the mussels and try the pizza

    Fresh house made pasta was excellent! It would be great to have at least one NA beer on the list or add an NA wine choice. We’re from out of town but will be back for sure. Next time I’ll have the NY steak in peppercorn sauce.

    Too much nutmeg in the ragú, and the Sazerac is made without absinthe for some reason. The arancini and insalata Ghibellina were good though.

    Via Ghibellina is a new gem in Ivy City my Italian partner and I have been wanting to try for a long time. It did not disappoint. The pasta is homemade, and the food overall one of the best meals we’ve had in a while. The hole in the wall minimalist red brick yet upscale vibe was one that reminded both of us of other favorite Italian places in Brooklyn and Connecticut. Definitely a new favorite for date night and would absolutely recommend.

    Overall, great experience here. I was promptly seated at my designated reservation time. This location is more laid back than what I remember of the 14th street location. The wine list is decent and I like how they have a cocktail of the day. All of the cocktails were delicious. To give you perspective, our bill was about $100/pp for appetizers, food and drinks- a great value. The food was delicious and this place ranks among one of my favorite Italian places in the city. I can't wait to go back for dinner again.

    An excellent combo of quality in a relaxed atmosphere. The service was friendly and fantastic, and considerate of the needs of a four year old and his mother on a special Valentine’s date. The Italian wine list was great and the filet mignon with balsamic glaze was superb.
