VIA UNO Cucina Italiana & Bar
We went for my girlfriends birthday and it was perfect. Not crowded at all on a Tuesday. Staff was absolutely amazing. Drinks were great and food is stellar. Definitely get the Afogotto for dessert
Via Uno is always great if you love "real" Italian food!!! It is the only place we eat when we go to the Coast. We shared the Burrata e Prosciutto, Rughetta e Pera Salad, and Housemade Ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese in a tomato sage sauce. Everything was perfect.
They were really busy. Service was good but both lasagna, bruschetta and meatballs were lukewarm. We didn’t complain and probably should have. Server kept saying octopus appetizer was coming but we had finished our meal and just told we were full and to cancel as it still hadn’t arrived. Both Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio were nice wines and generous pours. Unfortunately probably would not go back.
Bathroom music was lively, but food had no flavor. We got the margarita pizza and gnocchi. It would have helped if there was salt, pepper, Parmesan, etc on the table to spice things up a.bit. But none of that was there and our waiter was hard to track down. There were lots of other people dining there, but I would definitely not recommend it! Oh - I almost forgot about the Caesar salad. It tasted overwhelmingly of mustard. Probably the worst I’ve ever had!
The outside enclosure with heat lamp dining is our favorite
Easy to converse; nice and quiet
We had octupus which was very tender. Great branzino. Portabellos were fantastic. Great experience
The service was pleasant and attentive. However the food was sub par. It was about the same as supermarket prepared foods. The Brushetta was terrible. It was under ripe tomatoes on a flat bread soaked in vinegar and oil. The lasagna was mostly pasta. Barely any cheese and sauce. The meat was mostly on top. The pizza was bland with a tomato sauce that was flavorless. Had high hopes for the food but was disappointed.i wouldn't go back.
Only one waiter who was also bartender and host....
food was just ok... with lasagna slightly above average.... don’t bother!
Visited this restaurant with a group of five for the first time. Waiter was friendly and pleasant, we were seated for our reservation quickly. Unfortunately, the fritto misto appetiser was barely even warm when it arrived - the edges were cold and the fried vegetables looked old and wilted. The grilled octopus was warm and tasty, but was literally one small arm/leg - at $16.00 an expensive and small snack. The first entrees were served five minutes before the last - we gave up waiting and had to start so that the first entrees would not get cold. My pasta dish was lukewarm on arrival. We also poured our own wine and had to ask for replacement flatware that had been collected between courses. These are individually relatively small things, but collectively a big disappointment that could be greatly improved by better management.
The service and the ambience were good, as was the location, but much the food was very bland. I have not had to ask for salt at a restaurant in ages, and we weren't the only ones- we overheard the table next to us saying the same thing. The food was hit or miss. The meatballs were great. The red sauce under them tasted like straight tomato sauce from a can. The risotto was well cooked but ridiculously bland, while the scallops on top were delicious. Crab pasta was pretty tasty. The mixed fried appetizer was well cooked and good.
Horrible! Stay clear of this place
Wrong food order delivery
We waited more than an hour for dinner after ordering (with a 4 year old and 7 year old) and were not communicated to along the way. Very dissapointing. Also, pasta dinner for kids (which did actually come out at around 45 minutes before ours past an hour) was about a 1/2 cup portion. They ate in about 3 minutes (not just because they were quite hungry due to the wait ) and were still very hungry.
What a great group of owners/servers at Via Uno. Authentic food served with friendliness.
I joked with my date that we were at the Olive Garden. The noise level was insane. The accordion player was too loud right in front which increased the noise level overall. Lots of families and kids-- really shocked. This was the opposite of a romantic dinner. We asked to change tables since the table next to us had annoying kids climb around like monsters.
We were a group of eight people. We all ordered different entrées and everybody said they thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Good bar selection too.
Incredible food, warm service. You feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. We have been before. We will go again.
The food and staff were wonderful. My husband and I heard about this place through a friend and we had the BEST service from Anna. The pizza and gnocchi was done perfect. We are coming back again soon.
Amazing food and attentive service. We will always come back to Via Uno when we're craving great Italian cuisine!
A group of 4 of us went on a Tuesday night for the special 4 course meal. For $19.99, we had lentil soup or salad, creamy delicious risotto, salmon and for dessert, canneloni. All the courses were very good. The portions were on the small side but we all had plenty to eat. No one left hungry. There were some very reasonable Italian red wines on the menu. The chef came and spoke with us, which is always cool. All the wait staff had Italian accents. Can't wait to go back and try another Tuesday special.
Wonderful dining experience! The Carbonara and Brazino were amazing as well as the attention and knowledge of the staff/owners.
Excellent - fantastic - delicious - need I say more?
I took my friend for her birthday to Via Uno today. Was there last weekend as well for my sister’s birthday with the rest of the family. I’ve been here 6 times. They never fail.
We had carbonara as a starter. It was soooo delicious. For the main entree, we both had one of the specials of the day, the Corvina (baked sea bass). It just melted in our mouth. The dish was a great choice. We were so satisfied with the meal, decided not to have any dessert. Our server, Ana, brought us tiramisu with a lighted candle and sang happy birthday to my friend. That was very sweet of her. My friend and I both enjoyed the tiramisu. It was wonderful. Grazie!! We’ll definitely be back!
Phenomenal food and coastal ambience. The chef is from Roma, Italy and the pasta was the closest I’ve tasted to Roma. A must!
Bean and carrot soup was more a cup than bowl and was like runny baby food. Pear /Walnut/Cheese salad was a yucky wad of arugala (very little pear, walnut, cheese)...a joke. Everything except pizza is overpriced. Owner came out to adjacent table and laughed at other customers, including us. They just would not shut up. What a bunch of pretentious phonies. Not worth the price.
Annual family year end vacation dinner.
Momma Mia that’s a spicy meatball!
They treat you like family every single time. Love this place!
Always great friendly service.
We went to Via Uno for the Tuesday Local Special. This is the 4th time we have gone. As usual, the food was great. The portions appear to be on the small side, however, both my wife and I were quite full at the end of the meal. They also have a good wine selection.
Certain pizzas were very tasty. Most wines are Italian. Entrees/pasta dishes didn't have much flavor. The service was good. Dessert not many choices. We were an early diner yet some of the desserts were already sold out. The salads were fresh/huge but not a lot of flavor either.
Maybe best advise is go for the pizzas, salads and beer/wine only; the service was good enough. I'd pass on the entrees and pasta (pricey and no flavor).
Picked Via Uno Cucina for our annual get-together lunch. Our meeting time was at 12:30. We did not leave the restaurant until 5:30 —- girls’ never ending chatting.
The food at Via Uno is always very good. They never fail. Been there 4 times, and first time for the others. Our server, Anna, was wonderful. Will definitely be back.
The ambiance and service are always excellent at Via Uno. We love this place.
Always good and always fun!
Really wanted to love this place. Unopened mussels in the Zuppa de Pesce (sent back and no better the second time) and scrambled eggs in the Pasta Carbonara left us with little more to say than, “probably not again”. So sad. Really nice people and SO wanted to love it, based on previous reviews over the years. Sorry I can’t be more positive.
Always consistent with good food and service, very friendly, like going to eat with the family
Everything was wonderful - soup, salad, and the pizza! Service was great!
Pros: I had high hopes for this place. The brick oven pizza that my husband and I shared was very good. I loved the fresh chili peppers that were served on the side, with the chili flakes. Nice touch!! We both ordered an Old Fashioned from the bar & they were made perfectly. Our waiters were great!
Cons: We ordered two appetizers & they were both COLD, not just a little, but like out of the refrigerator cold. It was odd, because they looked cooked. One was bruschetta & the other was roasted Brussel Sprouts. When I mentioned the appetizers being cold to our waitress, I'm pretty sure I saw her head completely spin around. She seemed to be offended!! She literally got attitude with me! It was so uncomfortable after that.
Bottom line: Pizza is good, drinks are good, but we get enough attitude from our teenagers at home. We were out of town & spending money at your establishment, trying to relax & decompress. I'll pass your cold appetizers & rude waitresses. We'll try somewhere else next time.
The food is amazing. A quaint spot off the highway. Authentic Italian. We had the bruschetta which we bought more if to bring home. The eggplant and pizza took us back to Italy , delicious and the calamari was very fresh .
I’d recommend the drive because it’s rare to find such an authentic spot with great customer service
We had a wonderful dinner here with great service, excellent cocktails, and delicious food. We will go back again.
No need for a reservation as the place was practically empty, and the greeter/waiter didn’t bother to check, even after I stated I’d made a reservation.
Server seemed distracted despite so few patrons. (He forgot our water service)
Salad- greens included some older and yellowed pieces. Too much dressing.
Pizza was good, but that was about all.
No acknowledgement when we left- in fact there was no one to be seen. Very lax.
