Polpo was the best we have ever had! Service was first class in a comfortable bistro style room. We will be back.

We had a delightful evening. Our server was excellent. His name was Rob. Each item we chose was delicious. His wine recommendations were good. Overall it was a delightful evening. However, it seemed awfully pricey for what we actually got. We had eaten there once before and did not remember thinking it was obscenely expensive. We did not have the same experience this time. While I would recommend the restaurant. It would be with the caveat that bring a big checkbook.

Our dinner at Virtu was marvelous. The fool was delicious and the service spot on. The setting is a comfortable mix that allows both inside and outside seating. Be sure to have the grilled octopus appetizer. You won’t be disappointed.

First and last visit. Unbelievably noisy and when asked the waitress to address it; became clear a table with a larger tip was more important. Never even had a manager come by to apologize as couldn't talk with my wife so just left after appetizers. Food may be great but when you listen to drunk parties just being loud you realize its not with it.

Side note, the average wine menu is extremely over priced as most bottles were in the 2.5-3x retail range.

This was my first time visiting Virtu and based on what I saw online I was really looking forward to my visit. As a single diner I was very unhappy with the seating option they offered me and instead opted for dinning at the bar. The service team at the bar was attentive, but not necessarily welcoming. I started my meal with their ahi tuna which was very good but could have used a little more acid. I had their smoked duck breast for my entree. The dish was very good although the duck breast was a bit tough. Overall it was a good experience and I found the menu interesting enough that I would return.

We had a large group of 10 and set on the patio. Ivan's service was impeccable. With this large group, we tried all the small bites and pastas, and each person got an entree. All the food was exquisite!

Food as always was fabulous service was OK until the end of the meal, we ordered dessert one which included ice cream and when they brought it to the table they stuck the ice cream behind my to go bag And it wasn’t until the rest of the table was almost ready to leave that we realized my dessert had in fact been set on the table

We were seated at a table inside that was in the path of the restrooms. It was so cramped that people sitting at the bar were literally above us on one side, while on the other side people could not get by us to get to the restroom without bumping into our chairs. You would have thought we were in Manhattan.

Every time I dine here it surpasses the time before, which is saying a lot. Do yourself a favor and have the octopus. It has been voted best dish in the valley several years in a row and is off the charts.

My boyfriend and I shared a ricotta, honey, and almond w/baguette to start. I had the pork ragu over polenta with an egg on top. Both dishes were yummy! We'll be back.

Love this place! We were promptly greeted and shown to our patio table by the friendly hostess. When I went to the restroom I walked past the bar which was more lively with a view of the kitchen so I asked if we could move to the two open barstools ( we found out that the bar is first come first serve so if you can’t get a reservation, give that a try) Super friendly bartender made creative craft cocktails and our meals were delicious. The burrata with prosciutto (Shaved off the bone, right there by the bar) appetizer was so delicious and even better prosciutto than I’ve had in Italy. The atmosphere, personalities, and food here are all hard to beat. Our best restaurant experience of the trip!

We celebrated our anniversary with cocktails and dinner at Virtu. The It’s a Dry Heat was a great rye whiskey cocktail. We started with the Polpo (octopus) and Hamachi and both dishes were filled with wonderful flavors and textures We had the sea scallops and sea bass and borne were excellent. Highly recommend!

Food and drinks were amazing especially loved the octopus appetizer and the pasta dish. Our waiter was extremely helpful in explaining the menu to us. We were there on a rainy night so I think the ambience would be much better on a different night but they made the best of the situation.

Virtu doesn't disappoint! The food and service was outstanding. Upon the server's suggestion, we ordered the octopus appetizer. It was perfection, as was the burrata and prosciutto. The budino for dessert shouldn't be missed!
