Excellent food and service!
This is one of our favorite places. It's fun to be on Fountain Square, especially with out-of-town guests, like our last visit to V.V.
Great food. Great wine. Great service. Outstanding! Will be back again, and again!
Always reliable for excellent food and service!
It was amazing. our server let us do so many half portions we loved it!!!
This is an amazing spot in downtown Cincy. Personable host, patient and kind servers and a kitchen that worked with my allergies. I loved the look and feel. It is in a beautiful location. Would recommend to anyone.
We love this restaurant- one of our very favorites in Cincinnati. We also love sitting in their outdoor area when the weather allows. Unfortunately, there was a hideously loud concert going on at Fountain Square which made conversation difficult. If we had known this, we would have chosen another day to go. Is there some way that you could have input to the city, who allowed this event, to at least limit the noise level?
our dinner was excellent and our server Mac was great.
This has quickly become one of our favorite downtown dining locations. The staff is amazing, the food is excellent. Cocktails are an excellent mix of taste and sophistication, not too far out there like some other downtown establishments.
Easily the best restaurant in Cincinnati. We're never had a bad meal in all our years going there. Date nights, celebrations. Whatever. Always amazing.
Mac are waitress was fantastic!!! Dont change a thing.
Awesome restaurant....when was the last time the owners waited tables etc, at a great restaurant? Hat's off top notch experience
Bolognese is delicious! Grilled salmon was wonderful as was the ambiance.
Outstanding food and service. We never have a disappointment dining here. Christian checking on customers is very powerful & thoughtful!
We had a group of 12. Service was excellent. They were very accommodating and seated us in a separate area which we really appreciated. Food was very good. All left happy.
Excellent. Took 7 people to dinner and everyone loved it. Jenna was great.
We were totally impressed with the specials for restaurant week! There were two selections for each of the three courses. We decided to get the opposite choice so we could experience both selections. What a great experience. Tonight reminded us of the original Via Vite with innovative menu selections. We always enjoy their Osso Bucca and Gnocchi but they brought back the 'spark' to the original restaurant. We hope that they can continue with these innovative selections. We were lucky to have Katie for our server tonight. This was our second experience with her. She has been consistently attentive but did not rush us through our evening. She is truly an asset to the team.
We treated a client to lunch, and really enjoyed the atmosphere, as well as the wide selection of Italian food on the menu. Would definitely recommend for both business and pleasure. They were very busy for lunch, so consider making reservations ahead of time to ensure seating.
Fantastic menu! The staff was friendly, inviting, and attentive!
The server was fantastic. Charging $3 for basket of bread is shameful.
Everything from the service to the food was top notch!! And the food...absolutely delicious!!! This was better than some meals I’ve had in Italy! Can’t wait to go back & bring my husband.
Excellent food and great wine options. Waitress was very good and made excellent recommendations for both food and wine.
Our waiter did a wonderful job attending to our group of 6. His recommendations were all terrific. The ambiance suffered some because there was a big music festival going on downtown and on the square but that was beyond his and the restaurants control. Several of us had the brussel sprouts for and hor' dorve followed by the gem salad and cod. All were delicious. Another had the lamb shank on our server's recommendation and he was delighted. I have been to Via Vite several times, but all our dishes tonight were outstanding.
Our server, Paul, was exceptional. He delivered confident, friendly and attentive service that made us feel valued as guests. Great experience. Always good food and an amazing ambiance (beautiful restaurant), but our service made it memorable. I’ll be requesting Paul every visit.
Chef Christian is the best! Would come back a million times over!
Server was great..Food good..
Delicious. I am still salivating thinking about the goat cheese and fig jam on bruschetta.
We had limited time. Our waitress was very accomodating. Great food. We will definitely be back for a more relaxed supper in the future.
A beautiful restaraunt perfect for celebrating a special occasion without being pretentious. Delicious appetizers (we had the goat cheese and fig bruschetta and it was divine!) The servers were knowledgeable, warm and efficient.
The location and service was very nice. The goat cheese and fig bruschetta was an excellent start but the meal that followed unfortunately did not maintain that same level. The gazpacho was tasty and my wife’s cod entree was also nice. The gnocchi entree was rather bland and dry and just OK. The sides of caramelized Brussels sprouts was way too sweet and the fennel was overly rich.
I would ... consider ... a return trip but there are a lot of other choices for this price range that I would try first. Sorry that I cannot give a better review as I wanted to really like it.
We have an Italian Restaurant since 1963, we will be back. Great food, wine & service, and I didn’t cook it. Manga, beve & vivi bene. (Eat, drink & live well)
I always love Via Vite. The location is perfect - downtown Cincinnati right on Fountain Square. The food is always excellent. Authentic Italian with great options and specials.
Way overpriced for the quality of food. Service was fine, location was good. The food was mediocre at best.
It's been a while since we ate at Via Vite, I'd forgotten how good it was. The location in the midst of a busy and active square leads you to expect mediocre fare, living off the crowd. True of some neighbors but not Via Vite.
The gnocchi was wonderful. We also had the yellow pepper soup and it was very good.
Wonderful experience for my wife's retirement
Food was delicious and our server was knowledgable, attentive and ver polite. Received a delicious dessert for my birthday.
Everything was excellent. Friend from Atlanta enjoyed it very much. Thanks for continuing to provide a nice dining experience.
Nothing special. Very small portions.
excellent food and service, a little nosiey, but will be back many times.
