We have been to Via Vite many times. We decided to see how they tackle Restaurant Week. The 35.00/per person menu appealed to us online because we prefer 3 savory dishes as opposed to dessert. The Heirloom and Tomato and Watermelon salad had great flavor,...More

We ordered dinner, and when it arrived all of our dinners were cold. Not lukewarm. Cold. One person sent it back asking to have them warm it. Her dinner arrived after we were all finished.

Via Vite serves a variety of tasty Italian dishes for lunch, happy hour and dinner. The atmosphere is casual, but chic. In good weather you can enjoy the outdoor seating on the upper level. After your meal, enjoy a stroll around Fountain Square.

A great place to enjoy the summer weather with a bird's eye view of doings on Fountain Square. The food has always been tasty and the service usually excellent. The late afternoon sun lights up the face of the Carew Tower across the way and...More
