Every time we are in Cincinnati, we have to make a stop at Via Vite for the brussels sprouts! I know...sounds odd...but they are the best we've ever had...ever! The staff is always friendly and professional and the food is always amazing.

Perfect food (love the restaurant week menu) and the service is always unmatched
We're happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us!
We sat for 15 minutes before we got any beverages. Our Meals also came out before our appetizer. We were told the bottle of wine was a 38 dollar bottle but were charged 50 dollars. Food was great though.

Everything about our experience was worth a five star review. Between the waitress and the owner, we felt like we were the only ones in the building. We had a party of; all ordered something different, added an appetizer, a cabernet. The flavors, quality, and freshness were beyond amazing. Rather it be for a dinner, an appetizer, or a bottle of wine, we will be going back. It wasn't a dinner, it was an experience that I highly recommend.

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.
Hi MarkJ - Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your experience with us :)
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.
Dear PamelaR - We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your Easter Sunday brunch with us, we hope to see you again soon! Thank you for the five star review!!
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
Dear guest - Thank you for your feedback! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

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 :)

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.
Food was great, staff seemed very knowledgeable. They were busy and service was trying their best but could not keep up at times.
Hi Nick - Thank you for giving us your feedback! We look forward to seeing you again soon :)
Just a quick Bolognese lunch special, which just that: special. Chef knows how to make Bolognese. A very good value.

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!
