My family and I enjoyed the food. Highly recommend the octopus, gnocchi with black truffle, carmelized brussel sprouts. All delightful!

I've visited via vite several times and the food has consistently been good and the service friendly. It's one of the more expensive restaurants on fountain square but reasonable good value for money.

I ordered the pork belly appetizer as my entree, even though the waitress said it was small. However, when it came it was perfect and the bacon and carmelized brussel sprouts made the dish fantastic. The pork belly was like a soft pork chop taste. Hubby had the gnocchi with truffle sauce and loved it as well. The other dishes... More

Had a gift certificate from my daughter and decided to have dinner after a great matinee, The Book of Morman at the Arnoff. The restaurant was crowded and reservations are necessary. Food was prepared as ordered and was very good. Lamb shank was the best. Pizzas and other dishes are great. All in all an excellent choice.

Best food we had in Cincinnati! My mother and children visited Cincinnati in March. I can't stand eating at chain restaurants when we are in a new place. A good friend recommended Via Vite and it was wonderful. I had an excellent salad, shrimp pasta and bread. My little guy that will only eat "noodles with butter" loved the kids... More

We had a group of 7 colleagues with a variety of food allergies. Our server was very knowledgeable and their GF menu was extensive. The goat cheese half starter salad was excellent as was the lamb shank and gnocchi. The cioppino soup was NOT. Not a cheap meal but well-paced, nice outdoor terrace, strong cocktails and an overall lovely dining... More

Via Vite had a special menu for their Easter brunch and it was terrific! Fresh fruit; some of the best deviled eggs we've ever eaten; salads; Italian specialties; lamb, pork loin; fresh seafood and desserts. Eveything was delicious and continuously replenished. Chef Christian was present in the kitchen ensuring that everything was running smoothly. Service was attentive and prompt. This... More
