Fantastic service, I didnt get our servers name but she was so good at describing the plates that we ordered entrees to go as well! The gnocchi was dedeacant! My friend has the lamb shank and really enjoyed it, another friend has seafood risotto and the Brussels sprouts were perfect!
Excellent food and great service in an elegant and cozy atmosphere.
Loved it. Get the gnocchi.
Had a wonderful pre-ballet dinner with my mother. First time here and everything was wonderful. Amazing service, delicious food. All around loved it.
Everything was perfect as usual! I ordered my favorite tagliatelle bolognese and my husband ordered the lamb shank. We shared and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were celebrating our anniversary and ordered the valrhona dark chocolate creme brûlée and that was a perfect ending to a perfect meal. Via Vite is our favorite restaurant for celebrations, whether it is a birthday or anniversary, they treat you like royalty. Grazie!
We ordered appetizer, entree and sides. All were at met beyond our expectations. Luke our server gave us awesome service and very helpful with selections. He also surprised us with an anniversary dessert. One helpful criticism was wine selection is very limited by the glass.
Hi Sandra! We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, we hope to see you again soon :) Thank you for taking the time to review us!
The waitstaff was attentive, without being intrusive. She answered all our questions and gave good suggestions. The drinks were tasty and well prepared. The food was delicious and the platings were lovely. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. One thing I would suggest is to have more than one vegetarian pasta dish on the menu.
Hey there, thank you so much for taking the time to review us :) We're very happy to hear that you had a pleasant experience with us at Via Vite, we hope to see you again soon!
service was awesome. The appetizers ruled!!!
great wine selection.
Thank you for the five stars Tommy!
Food was good and the manager was excellent. The server seemed like she was busy elsewhere quite a bit but she was nice when she was around.
Omg this place was so good! The service and food were equally amazing!
Thank you for the five stars, happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us!
We aren't Italian but Vio Vite seemed very authentic with Firsts (pastas) and Seconds (meats). We were American and just ordered the pasta, Tagliatelle Bolognese, which was very good, a nice depth of flavors. The tagliatelle was home made! We also ordered the yellow pepper soup which was just right on spice, olive oil and some cream. The special was a crab cake, yummy! The dessert menu was extensive with desserts, drinks and digestivs! We ordered the vanilla affogato and it was assembled in front of us to everyone at other tables delight. I would definitely go back and recommend. The restaurant sits on Fountain Square and you can see the fountain from all seats I believe.
So happy to hear that you had a good time with us :) We try to stay as authentic as possible to reflect a true Italian experience :) Thank you for your feedback!
Friends 53 rd Anniversary. Four different entrees, all were delicious. Service was very good. Lovely dinner.
Thank you for the five stars :)
Noise level only b/c enjoyed the Terrace Seating
Thank you for the five stars :)
Had a reservation for 8:45 pm for outdoor seating. We arrived and they told us that we had to wait because there were people who were over extending their stay upstairs past their reservation time. We told them if they could tell them that other reservations are waiting and they told us, “they didn’t want to do that”. Then then after 30 min of waiting, we were seated and greeted by the manager who then said that the first drink was on him. The waiter then came and made a joke about how we waited and got our first drink for free without an apology for the wait.
It was great. I can’t remember the servers name, he had one dangling earring. He was amazing. He was patient with us.
Hey there, thank you for taking the time to review us :) We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us!
Great Italian food on the square. Consistent quality and good service.

Thank you for taking the time to review us Charles! Hope to see you again soon :)
Via Vite has long been a favorite of ours downtown with fabulous food, setting right on Fountain Square and those little touches that keep us coming back again and again!
Hi Beth! We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, we hope to see you again soon:)
Very good food and service
Loved our waitress. Would definitely return
It's always good. Always! Tonight was no exception.
Thank you for the five stars Adam! :) We appreciate you dining with us and hope to see you again soon :)
Excellent food, truly every bite was perfection. We ordered the fig and goat cheese bruschetta, the lamb shank entree and the swordfish entree. Simple ingredients paired perfectly, and the entrees were both melt-in-your-mouth. We split the caramel dessert, it had flaky pastry and perfect cream. My ONLY complaint is the pacing of the server, returning to the table too soon. For an authentic Italian restaurant, it felt rushed. We were ordering dessert after only 1.5 hours. That may sound long, but not for an authentic Italian meal, and not at 6:30pm on a Tuesday. But overall, it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time!

We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us! :) Thank you for taking the time to review us!
A WOW! Great server (Kelly) was knowledge about the Italian wine selections and dinner choices. Seafood Risotto and the snail shell pasta ala vodka sauce were outstanding! Due to an error, we also had the Gnocchi. All plates were split in the kitchen (including the Italian Salad) since we shared. The manager came around and checked on every table and spent a few minutes talking with guests. Reservations are a MUST and weekend entertainment outside at 5/3 Stage Fountain Square is a bonus.
Thanks for the great review Jay! We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us :) We hope to see you again soon!
The Food and Service at Via Site were impeccable as usual.

Everyone in our party very much enjoyed the food and dining experience at Via Vite.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us, we hope to see again soon David :)
Thank you for the five stars Tracy!
Great service is to be waiting in line because the host is taking a reservation over the phone and have someone else at the busy restaurant coming to apologize for the wait. Not only that but took our names, jumped on the computer, and walked us to our table. Food was out of this world!
Hi Oliver, thank you for taking the time to review us! We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, we hope to see you again soon :)
The service tonight was very very poor, first time I’ve ever experienced this. But he was friendly and that helped, poor guy.

Hi Jacob, thank you so much for taking the time to review us :) We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time spent with us! Hope to see you again soon :)
Everything was very good.
My wife and I visited Cincinnati for the Brewers-Reds game. We came straight from the game. We were probably a little underdressed for this restaurant. However, everyone was friendly and at least acted like they didn’t notice!
The service was timely and we did not feel rushed.
The bruschetta was excellent.
The bolognese with the veal meatball was excellent.
The dark chocolate creme brûlée was outstanding.
Prices are reasonable. 4 glasses of wine, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 1 dessert - $150.
Very enjoyable experience.
Will definitely come back the next time we are in downtown Cincinnati.
Hey there, thank you for taking the time to review us! We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, we hope to see you again soon :)
Have been here multiple times and continues to meet my expectations. The Braised Lamb Shank has got to be one of the best dishes in the city!
Micheal hi! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time spent with us, we hope to see you again soon :)
Christian, our waiter deserves a raise.
More tequilla selections, please.
I enjoyed my time there.

Wonderful food. Wonderful ambience. Great place for a birthday dinner.
Thank you for the five star review, we hope to see you again soon :)
We had another great meal. It was summer menu with the addition of a few things versus the last time were there. The Gazpacho was very good as was the honeymoon salad and the swordfish. The service was very attentive and professional if a little off with wine service. Chef Christian was there and was doing a great job of touching base with a lot of tables which is always fun. We love this place.
Hi Kevin - we're so happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves as well as our new menu additions! :) We hope to see you again soon, thank you for the five stars!
The food was excellent! We had the Seafood Russoto & the Swordfish Steak, both were very good. We also enjoyed the white wine that was recommended to us by the head chef. He was walking around tables this night which felt great to us. We were treated very well the entire meal.
Thank you for the five star review! We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! We hope to see you again soon :)
