Wonderful food

I love this place. The decor is eclectic, the owners are lovely, and the food - wow, the food. I have never had a bad meal and I've been a patron since they opened. Be sure to tell your server if you have dietary restrictions - they make a killer gluten free pasta and also GF desserts! The service... read more

My wife and I were drawn to dine at this restaurant based on the positive reviews we read. We both had different meals, I pasta with eggplant, her chicken. Both very ordinary. Compared to other restaurants we have dined at, we found our meals to be average. The best part of my meal was the appetizer. They claim to use... More

This place is a gem!!! Fun atmosphere, great food, terrific staff, and I loved the fact that you can bring your own wine. If you love food, fun, and a wee bit of funky.....this is your place!

but this restaurant is so good that when you are there it automatically becomes a special occasion. The food is fresh and well prepared, the service knowledgeable and friendly, the chef/owners attentive and caring. You will definitely need reservations because it is small, but if you have to wait, you will not regret doing so.

If you are looking for the absolute best in unique gastronomy, then look no further! This was, hands down, the best dining experience I've had in awhile. From the minute I walked into the restaurant, I knew this place was something special. Every thing I ate was incredibly fresh, seasoned perfectly, and tasted like a more modern type of comfort...

We were a table of four. Two of us shared a tomato and fresh mozzarella appetizer, which was excellent. I had eggplant Parmesan with penne for my entree. Tasty and generous, but overpriced at $24. Two other diners ordered monkfish which was good, but not special. We shared an "okay" flourless chocolate dessert. It is bring your own wine, so... More

Once again, Claudette and Lauren created amazing food last night. We split an order of the special pasta, shrimp in sherry cream sauce as an appetizer and we were sorry we didn't order it for our entrée. Then we had the entrée and we were pleased we got to experience a few items. The entrees, roasted eggplant in pasta, grilled... More

I love via 45. My wife and I always come back whenever we want to treat ourselves or have an occasion to celebrate. The food is just so fresh and well prepared. I compare it to a perfect home cooked meal (if you're parents happen to be amazing cooks.) Any dish I have had was perfectly seasoned and perfectly prepared.... More
