Dined on the patio there last evening with group of 6 friends who chose Via. Hadn't been there recently. What a revelation! Waitstaff friendly, attentive, prompt despite being busy on a lovely summer evening. Each of us made different choices, all beautifully prepared and presented. Mine was scallops caponata, light, fresh--wow! Creative fresh salad choices, arugula, prosciutto, goat cheese. Dessert... More

We travel to this area of the country several times during the year and we have lunch at Via day after day during our stay. Reasonably priced, delicious and generous servings prepared with fresh and wholesome ingredients are hard to resist. Starting with the home made bread with olive oil appetiser, the fire grilled pizza pie for $12.00--- we are... More

My husband and I travel to Webster Lake every summer weekend and usually stop in Worcester, MA for dinner on the way. Our new favorite place to go is Via. We sit at the bar and get the best service from John, one of the bartenders there. The Fig and Prosciutto pizza is amazing as are some of the other... More

Via is a great place for Italian food - their lunch specials are terrific. Try their fonduta as an app - it is fantastic and if you are too full after that, skip right to dessert and get the trio or centro set up of gelato which comes on a neat pallet set up with mini cones.

We really enjoyed the restoration of the old factory building. It is tasteful and beautiful. The food was good, but have had better. Service was excellent. Overall, a good experience. Prices are a little high.

Three of us went for dinner to celebrate an important anniversary for a member of our party. From the salad (arugula, prosciutto and figs) to the main course (an exceptional eggplant parmesan) I kept eating even after I was full. My friends also loved their meals (one had a pizza, the other a lobster roll). Good wine selection and great... More

Ate here as a recommendation while staying on a buisness trip. The food was amazing little on the expensive side. It worth it. The drinks were also very good. Definitely recommend to all you travelers looking for a nice spot of Italian dinning.

The food is always exceptional. The atmosphere is great, we love to sit in the outdoor seating area when possible. The service is always top notch. We recommend PLT appetizer: Prosciutto, tomato, lobster, mozzarella cheese. The tiramisu is wonderful too!

We met here for a birthday celebration. All four of us had wonderful meals! Each dish was delicious and lots of sharing of tastes was done. Since we were seated near the kitchen, it was a little noisy. If you want it quieter, you might request being farther from the kitchen.
