After hearing quite a few good things about Via restaurant, we decided to try it on a Saturday. It is divided in two sections, ground level, for non smoking, was empty. Lower level, smoking section, had two tables, both with one customers. So , not busy at all for a late Saturday afternoon. Service: the biggest disappointment of all was... More

Very good service, great food and nice atmosphere. The non smoking area is not that nice, but the downstairs (basement), even though is a smoking place, its great. Always left satisfied.

Due to the praises I have read on tripadvisor and in specialty newspaper articles, we decided to have a dinner at Via. Given its reputation, I expected nothing but perfection. At the end of the evening the conclusion was the following: quiet location, plain decor, ordinary food (the dessert was more sour than sweet!), ordinary service (the impassive face of... More

This is one of those restaurants that does not want to attract attention. Hidden in a narrow alley with no outward sign of name or welcome, this place says, "find me if you can" and is probably meant for a steady loyal die hard patrons. I was taken there for a business dinner. I ordered a pan fried trout while... More

Very good dishes, some are tastier than others, good wine menu, a bit overpriced. However, the service could be improved, the waiters are not all very helpful or know what they serve. Booking in advance is recommended, though even that may not guarantee you the best places sadly.

Based on other trip advisor reviews, I decided to go with this restaurant over other choices that were recommended to me. Via did not disappoint. My colleague & I each had an appetizer & entree. We were both quite happy with our selection. I had a country style duck liver pate, & a special chicken dish over gnocchi in a... More

The place is fine but the dishes are not tasty at all and very expensive. Also, the portions are very small. We went three persons and had 3 different dishes and all were bad cooked. The stuff was also not polite. A lot of noise from the kitchen. Not romantic at all. It has good reviews just because is in... More

We were not made to feel welcome, service took an age but the meal was really very pleasant, especially when compared to the standard local fare. The pesto gnocchi & chicken was marvellous. If you require a well prepared and quality meal, are in no rush and do not need manners or atmosphere an excellent choice in Cluj Napoca.

Bad service(no napkins offered, waiter had no idea about some food), lack of certain food despite being on the menu(no mushrooms for a ravioli??), potatoes served raw, the chef named on the menu was not present (maybe just for special days as a marketing tool I think), the dishes we had were just average, nothing special. WAT-reset not possible!!!...nice location... More
