Waiter was great, food and wine pairing was perfect!
Unbelievably great cuisine
Staff all gracious
Atmosphere is great
Jake was considerate kind and attentive
The food is amazing! We had-
1. Fig and Goat Chees Bruschetta
2. Handmade Crispy Gnocchi
3. Faroe Island Salmon
Each of the above is a must-try!!
Trent was beyond wonderful!!! Never had to wait for a thing!
Excellent food. The pepper steak was one of the best steak dinners I have ever had. Incredibly tender and wonderfully flavorful.
Excellent attentive service from our waitress.
While I am thrilled to see that Via Vite is back open again for lunch (we've literally been waiting for this for months), some in our party were disappointed with their meal. Unfortunately he would not recommend the crab pasta dish, as it was advertised as spicy and was far from that. It also did not have any noticeable crab in the dish. Overall though, the old classics were wonderful - bolognese, vodka, etc. We will definitely be back.
Trent was an exceptional server. Gracious, engaging, attentive and unobtrusive. The manager stopped by to check in on us and was genuine in his interest in our well being. Food was excellent.
Great new menu with two excellent new pastas. Great to see VV open for lunch again.

Fantastic food and service. Did not overpay for anything and received one of our best Italian meals in a long time.

The food was great. Especially the octopus starter. Would really have enjoyed being outside instead but they can't accommodate parties of more than 4.

Great food and service. The lasagna was wonderful. Need more side salad choices though.
Hi Dylan, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback!
We were going to a concert and told our waiter Jake our time constraints. He was awesome in taking our order, getting it out quickly and never made us feel rushed. The food was also delicious!
Hi there, thank you so much for the kind words and review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us and hope to see you in again soon :)
I visited Via Vite September 7, 2021, the night as a concert on Fountain Square. I wanted a way to hear the music, but avoid the crowds. The outdoor balcony at Via Vite was the perfect match. What I didn't anticipate was how wonderful an experience the combination of the food and music would be. The staff was incredibly accomodating, trying to make sure people had views of the screen and stage. The service was also amazing in general - great recommendations, just the right level of attentiveness, and friendly. I came for the location, not the food, but realized that was a mistake, because the food is certainly worth its own trip. Everything was delicious and I'll be back even without a concert next time :)
Hi Milo, we are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us while dining on our Piazza Bar, that's what we love to hear! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us such kind feedback and we hope to see you in again soon :) Thank you!
We had a pleasant evening with friends, appetizers were fantastic especially the Bruchette and Veal Meatballs. We enjoyed some of the pasta dishes and I had the wonderful Lamb Shank. Followed by the Dark Chocolate dessert. A wonderful Amarone Wine with Some Espresso after dinner drinks. All delightful. A wonderful server and staff was courteous and kind.
Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us feedback! We are very happy to hear that your experience with us was all that you wanted it to be! We hope to see you again soon :)
Gazpacho was out of this world, seafood risotto very good and the fig jam bruschetta always a favorite.
Hi Amy, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us feedback :) we hope to see you in again soon :)
Excellent! Great service and food! Waiter was excellent, don’t remember his name but he was a young Gentleman, recent XU graduate. Will definitely be returning and recommending.

Gnocchi was best we’ve ever had!
Delicious lamb shank.
Hi there, thank you for the five star review :)
We went to Via Vite before a show at the Aronoff. We were greeted by two friendly hostesses who sat us at a window table overlooking the square. Our server, Samantha, was outstanding!! She was so nice, talkative and attentive and we felt relaxed and not rushed. She really made for a great experience. We started with the bruschetta which was out of this world. For our main course we both got the bucatini amatriciana and were not disappointed. Very very good! We finished with delicious gelato. It was a great evening and we will certainly be back.
Hi Nancy, thank you so much for the kind words and review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time with us at Via Vite! We hope to see you in again soon :)
Don’t know why we have never been before but know we will be back. The food was amazing and not overpriced at all. Great location. Left dinner and then listened to music on the square before heading to the Johnny Mathis concert.
Hi Scott, thank you for the kind words and review! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your first-time dining experience with us :) We hope to see you again soon - thank you -
A very nice meal! Trent was polite, friendly and
professional. Delicious bolognese with meat BALL! :P
Hi Mike, thank you so much for your feedback :) we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us!
One of the best salmon dinners I ever had! Highly recommend!
Hi Joy, thank you so much for the kind words and review!
We were more than happy with the food. We had the goat cheese bruschetta for starters and followed that with the seafood risotto and gnocchi. I will CERTAINLY visit again for the gnocchi. It was a smaller dish but good to pair with an entree. We then did the steak entree which was large enough to share. We did the olive oil on the side which makes it less heavy.
Hi Erin, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback :) We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you again soon !
We came for drinks and appetizers, and this place did not disappoint! We both had gin drinks and they were delicious. For the appetizer, we had the grilled octopus. Hands down, the best I’ve ever had. It was cooked to perfection and served with a gremolata that I could have drank! The potatoes and frisée pared beautifully and the portions were perfect for 2 of us to share. Best appetizer I’ve had in a long time and next time I come back, I may make it my meal! Our server was Emily, she was attentive and very sweet. The manager also stopped by. It was a wonderful evening and a perfect start to our anniversary night!
Hi Heather, thank you so much for the kind words and review! We are so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time with us at Via Vite :) We appreciate you taking the time to leave us your feedback and hope to see you again soon!
Great service and great food. The gnocchi is always the right choice. Also had the lasagna special, portion was huge and it tasted great.
Hi Brooke, we appreciate you taking the time to review us! We hope to see you in again soon :)
A Mary Poppins experience: practically perfect in every way.
Food was amazing, portions were just right, service was great (thank you, Beth). Could not have been better.
Gnocchi is to kill for. Enjoyed the swordfish and lamb shank. Chocolate creme brûlée was outstanding.
This was our first visit (been to sister restaurant Nicola’s many times), we will return.
Hi Bobby - we are so excited to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us!! We appreciate you taking the time to review us and can't wait to see you again soon :) Thank you for your feedback!
Food is as good as all the reviews. Vodka pasta with sausage was an interesting take and very tasty. Brussels sprouts were incredible, sort of a carmelized maple glaze. Wine list was very nice with a wide array Italian choices.
Hi Craig, we are so thrilled to here that you enjoyed your experience with us! We appreciate you taking the time to review us and hope to see you again soon!
Food was awesome staff was very friendly service was excellent highly recommend
Hi Brian! thank you for the kind words and review :)

Hi there, we appreciate you taking the time to review us!
Via vite was amazing as always! Great food, great service
Hi there, thank you for the five star review :)
The amatriciana, seafood risostto and boucheron goat cheese salad were all fantastic. The risotto was absolutely loaded with delicious fresh-tasting seafood and cooked to perfection. The only hiccup was our server forgot our bread and disappeared a couple different times even though they were definitely not very busy at all. Minor complaint compared to the entire experience.
Hi Bob, thank you so much for the kind words and for taking the time to review us! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you again soon :)
