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

The food here is always great, and now I've discovered my new favorite dessert. The fig jam tart is equal parts flaky and moist, with just the right amount of sweetness. If it is on the menu, try it, you'll love it!

If you are in downtown Cincinnati, try Via Vite. They have great food, great service, and a great location. It's my favorite spot when we visit Cincinnati.

Visited in mid March '17 with colleagues while traveling for a conference. I had been here before and had a great experience with their pizza. This time decided to try their lamb shank and was one of the best culinary choices ever - some of the most tender while still juicy and flavourful meat that I've had ever. Service was... More

This is a regular place my wife and I meet for lunch on Fountain Square. Good selection of wines at reasonable prices. This of course goes well with the delicious Italian food. I tend to get the pizzas about every other time I'm there. Thin wood fired with top shelf toppings. The other times I mostly get the Vodka Gnocchi... More

Went on a week night and expected it to be empty. Could not have not have been more wrong. It was jammed. But we got seated pretty quickly. The food was amazing, ended up having 3 courses as the waitress suggested sharing a plate of the nochi between starters and mains. It was done black truffles and was to die... More

Located on Fountain Square, which features an ice rink in winter, we enjoyed a weeknight dinner of Veal Saltimbucca and bone-in Pork Chop w/ Navy Bean Ragout along with a side of Caramelized Brussels Sprouts- delicious and perfectly-sized portions. Server was friendly and efficient.

My husband and I ate brunch here on a recent Sunday morning. The building and décor are modern and clean, with a view onto Fountain Square. The brunch menu is varied and everything was delicious. Service was great. We will go back!
