Our waiter was excellent, well versed and knowledgeable. The food and wine were fantastic and reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
The food was excellent and service could not have been better. Great job!
Great food. Great service. Little pricey but was worth it for the occasion.
Hi - We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay here at Via Vite, we look forward to seeing you again soon :)
The house meat sauce was as good as I have ever had. It appears to be the oldest item on the menu, I understand why.
Via Vité consistently exceeds expectations. It made for a very special Easter brunch with out of town guests. The terrace was very nice. The high top table has limited surface space for all the plates and the tall chairs are somewhat of a challenge to scoot in. But so worth it.
Easter brunch was very good. The menu choices were great. My only suggestion would be to send the first course out separately from the second.
Hi CaseyY - We're glad to hear you enjoyed your Easter Sunday brunch, thank you for your feedback!
So good! Authentic Italian. The owner came and spoke with us about the food and Italy too. Loved it
Came here for a little anniversary dinner and it was great, as usual! The Bolognese is to die for, and my husband LOVES their Lasagna! Delicious and highly recommend!
This was one of the most amazing meals ever! Our server Trent was amazing and the manager/owner was so attentive. Get the seafood risotto for sure!
This was our first visit . What a great experience! The menu was very good . Arugula salad , octopus, lamb and halibut were all terrific. The food was served at the proper temperature and nicely presented. The service was very good . Big wine list. We highly recommend you give this fine restaurant a try .
Hi DavidC - Thank you for taking the time to review us! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed you first-time experience with us at Via Vite! We look forward to seeing you again soon :)
Our waitress was so positive and excited about the new menu. Her excitement led us to try new items, which All of us enjoyed . It’s definitely a restaurant to return to again and again.
Hi AnneS - We're glad to hear you enjoyed trying some of our new menu items, we look forward to seeing you again!
It was good but not great. The service was really not great, which led to cold food (which is the worst!) missing food items and an overall lack of satisfaction primarily due to the service.
Just a quick Bolognese lunch special, which just that: special. Chef knows how to make Bolognese. A very good value.
Food was incredible! Service was great! Can't wait to go back again!
Dessert to die for!!!
Hi JenniferM - Thank you for the five star review! Hope to see you again soon :)
Terra was a very great bartender and Toby was very knowledgeable about the wine. The swordfish was delicious

Dear JayS - Thank you for the five star review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us :)
Love the views from the outdoor patio! A great place to take guests visiting Cincinnati to see a lively area with great food.
Hi Sophia - Thank you for the five star review! Our patio and terrace are definitely a "hidden gem" in the heart of Fountain Square :) we look forward to seeing you again soon!
The service and food was amazing! The grapefruit cocktail is a must-try!
Hi YashuaH - Thank you for your feedback, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Via Vite was very delicious and had good service. I have two complaints, it was very cold in the restaurant, as me and my husband were shivering the whole time. Also, the portion for my meal, the ravioli, was very small. I was still very hungry after eating.
We chose to dine at Via Vite for our 24yr old twin’s birthday, and the evening well exceeded our expectations. Every aspect of our meal was perfect. Our server was professional, attentive, thoughtful, an expressed a genuine interest in providing a memorable experience. The owner, Christian, graciously stopped at our table to check with us and ensure that we were enjoying every aspect about our selections, and that gesture was very much appreciated. I would highly recommend this restaurant as it has become one of our absolute favorites in the city. Thank you for a great night!
Hi CyndieS - Thank you for the positive feedback! We strive to deliver the best kind of hospitality, we look forward to celebrating more birthdays with you soon!
Excellent!!!! I am surprised we have not experienced Via Vite sooner because BOY, this place delivers! We had the fig tagliatelle bolognese ... YUMMM — delicious and artfully prepared, presentation was amazing and service was thoughtfully spot-on! We normally cannot eat too much in one sitting, so we usually take home leftovers. (I hope Chef did not take it as a slight, because, I assure you, everything was “molto delizioso” — we will gobble everything up before morning!!!). We also took home the tiramisu, which did not last!!! *
Dear guest - We're so glad to hear your enjoyed your experience with us and we hope to see you again soon! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review :)
We did the chef tasting menu and it was fantastic. Food and service were above and beyond. Definitely plan on returning.
Dear guest - We're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us! Thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review!
Wait staff brought their ‘A’ game. Responsive and offered very good recommendations and didn’t rush my decision.
Hi JamesR - Thank you for your feedback! Glad you enjoyed your time with us a Via Vite
The food was awesome as usual but the greatest thing was the service - which has also always been great. We had a guest who we haven't seen for 14 years. The waitress was very patient with us allowing us to get caught up with our guest while being right there when we needed her. Also, this is the first time we have dined in at a restaurant in a year because of Covid-19. Starting with the info on their website and the way the staff conducted themselves and the way the restaurant was laid out, we felt very safe but comfortable. A great night for sure! Thanks Via Vite!
Hi wildcatrick- Thank you for the five star review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us all around and that you felt safe, we take Covid protocols very seriously! Look forward to seeing you again soon!
Perfect every time I come in!
Dear guest - Thank you for the five star review!
Chef very pleasant and around the restaurant. Pizza ordered and came out cold and soggy did remake was was ok. Octopus delightful but thought playing with potatoes was a little heavy for appetizer. Wine good. Server a little off. Made up for pizza with complimentary dessert. Chocolate cream brûlée. Very yummy.
Dear guest - We appreciate your feedback! Next time we'll try and earn that fifth star!
Definitely one of the best service experiences I've had in Cincinnati, as well as very solid food and drinks. We got small plates and a pizza but want to return for the lamb shank and pumpkin ravioli.
Hi TerryK - We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us at Via Vite, and can't wait to see you again soon!
We took my wife’s best friend and her husband for their first visit. As usual, the food was exceptional. I tried the amatriciana for the first time. What a wonderfully prepared dish. We also had a terrific bottle of Brunello di Montalcino. Everyone truly enjoyed their meals. I highly recommend Christian’s restaurant for a wonderful dining experience.
Hi TakeFive - Thank you for the five star review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your dining experience with us!
We celebrated another birthday at Via Vite. It is our favorite place to enjoy a delicious meal. They went out of their way to offer my daughter various menu items that she could eat after we told them of her dairy allergy. She was thrilled to have such a wonderful selection. Thank you for another memorable birthday!
Hi NKYpatron - Thank you so much for the five star review!
Food and service was great. Our first dinner out since February 2020 and the terrace felt safe and comfortable.
BettyOnWynkoop- Thank you for the remarkable review! We are glad to hear you felt safe, we take Covid precautions very seriously. We hope to see you again soon!
One of our favorite places, and one of the top restaurants in Cincinnati. We especially enjoy the outdoor dining when available. This time we sat inside because of the weather. Our only complaint is that the sound system was playing so loudly that our waiter could not be understood, and conversation at our table was at a sound level that was higher than I would have liked.
RichS - Thank you for the five star review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience here with us at Via Vite. However, we are sorry to hear you experienced issues with the level of surrounding music, we will definitely make some adjustments. Next time you dine with us we will make sure to accommodate you in quieter area of our dining room. We appreciate your feedback!
Food all I can say is I have seen better
Food was delish, we’ll be back:-)
