    The food is very good. My only negative comment is the placement of the hostess stand. I realize the space is long and narrow, but you should rethink having it (and often 3-4 employees) right on top of customers.

    First time here. Food was very good. However, service was lacking. Had to ask multiple times for bread, and to refill water glasses. No bus staff and only two waiter/waitress for a busy Friday night. We waited over an hour for a pizza and pasta dish. Our waitress was very pleasant and explained they were short staffed. I would definitely go back to give them another try since the food was excellent and wait staff was friendly. I did not see any management presence to help the staff either, which bothered me. As management if you’re team is short staffed, I would think you’d step in to assist.

    New restaurants have lower rating curve to work out kinks but this needs to be addressed asap or no one will return. The Food was tasty and employees seemed to be constantly busy and running back and forth from kitchen thru dining room to outdoor dining but the personal service was awful. There were only 3 tables filled inside and 3 tables filled outside. After asking if we wanted water, no other drink order was taken or asked of us. After our apps arrived I asked if they served any drinks other than water and was handed an iPad for the beverage/wine menu. No one followed up with me to ask what I selected so I never ordered the wine I chose and menu stayed on table till we left. Water was not refilled and was very much needed. Two out of four entrees arrived at the table and then we waited an unacceptable time for the last two entrees to arrive while first two were getting cold with no communication from the staff. Getting the attention of employees was difficult as they didn't make eye contact as they ran by. So after we ate, I called someone over and asked for take home containers and the check all at once because I knew it would be difficult to get their attention afterwards. As we were leaving we overheard a gentlemen at one of the other tables vocally very upset with their lack of service. I hope this location fixes this VERY quickly because based on that experience only, I would not recommend this red bank location.

    Would not recommend. Food very average. The thin crust pizza is the best choice. Service average. Seated at a table that had no water or wine glasses at the settings. Took a good 10-15 minutes (Saturday night) before a waitress came over and we could get some water and glasses and open a bottle of wine. Very loud and they make it worse by turning up the music which is not needed. So difficult to have a conversation with friends over dinner and wine.

    It's a nice restaurant in Red Bank & accommodates so many tables inside & outside. It's a bring your own so no bar. The food was good. I just have a harder time because of a dairy allergy. A lot was cheese & dairy & of course pizza!

    Needed late evening dinner and had not visited Via Sposito, since they opened this year. Have to say the food was very good. Vongole (clams) in red sauce was so good. Clams were cooked perfectly and sauce was very tasty. For the main I had chicken parmigiana with a side of broccoli rabe. Penne pasta was al dente and sauce had great flavor. Broccoli rabe was cooked perfect with garlic. Fresh baked dinner rolls were a good addition for both the clam sauce and with the chicken parm. Low volume of people later in the evening that I appreciated. When full, I think the noise volume would be high. Service was good and the manager was helpful and answered questions regarding gluten feee options for my family (next visit). I will visit again in the near future as there were several things on the menu I would like to try. So many people looked in the window and walked on. Their loss. Good local place.

    My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to discover Via Esposito's charming spot on Broad Steet in Red Bank and their delicious food. The menues are unique: iPads - and their menu is creative and appealing. We had their fried zucchini flowers and tri-colore salad as an appetizer, and then clam pizza - which was superb. We like that they allow us to bring our own bottle of wine. We'll be back!

    Made a reservation for Easter Sunday and when we arrived the restaurant was not open! We received multiple confirmation communications that we had a reservation and were greatly disappointed to find that we could not only not be accommodated but also we’re at a loss for dinner plans on a holiday! Horrendous.

    Terrible experience. This restaurant just recently opened in Red Bank. So we decided to try it. My husband and I had dinner here with a friend. We ordered arugula, pear, parmigiano salad and calamari Fritti as starters. For entree I had Linguine a la Pescatora Fra Diavolo, my husband ordered Eggplant Parmesan and our friend ordered shrimp Parmesan. The salad was OK, the Calamari Fritti was bland and needs to be cooked a little more. My husband who is Italian and loves Eggplant Parmesan was so disappointed with the dish he couldn’t eat it because it had some bitter taste to it. He sent it back. The manager came and asked him what was wrong with it. He explained. The manager argued and said they tasted it when it was sent back and it was good. REALLY? He didn’t apologize. My husband ended up apologizing for not liking the dish. He had lost his appetite and didn’t order anything to replace it. They packed the dish and tried to give it to us to take home. REALLY? The Linguine a la Pescatore Fra Diavolo was dry. I had to start eating from the bottom where there was some sauce. So i asked for extra sauce. The manager again argued and said it has a lot of sauce. Again REALLY? But he did send sauce to the table. The Shrimp Parmesan was so so. For dessert we had chocolate gelato and my friend ordered cappuccino. The gelato tasted good although it wasn’t smooth but very icy. My friend didn’t like the cappuccino. To top it all they charged us for the Eggplant Parmesan no wonder they wanted us to take it home with us. My husband didn’t want to argue about it so we just paid it. So Diners be warned. There are a lot of good restaurants in Red Bank. This one doesn’t cut it.

    Phenomenal! They make you feel like family! The menu is different from old bridge and mainly pizza, pastas, and Parms. But the panelle and spiedini are to die for. I can’t wait for them to open more seating outside in the summer! Great for a night out with the family…. AND they’re BYOB
