RIGHT ON FOUNTAIN SQUARE

This place is fun. Different rooms and then a upper deck that views Fountain Square and the big screen TV. The liver pate bruschetta was yummy as was the pizza and meat and cheese tray. Has a nice happy hour and also easy if you work downtown. Parking at Fountain Square if you have to drive in.

We had my daughter's high school gradation dinner here on a Sunday evening for 8 people. This is the fourth or fifth time I've dined at Via Vite. I always enjoy my meal here. The food is excellent and a great value. Service is excellent. My 2 teen daughters were excited to have a virgin strawberry daiquiri (which they've hade... More

I stopped by for a late dinner, and the food and service were delightful. The Cioppino was excellent: spicy, fresh, lots of seafood, and garlicky bread with it. I also had an arugala salad that was fresh and bright (including lemon dressing, parmesan, and pine nuts). The only critique is that the music was pretty loud, given there were only... More

We were here before a show at the Aronoff. Some of us decided to share meals & our waiter was so accommodating. We have eaten here several times & enjoyed the food & the atmosphere every time but this time in particular our waiter was extremely helpful!

This was the location for my cousin's daughter's rehearsal dinner for about sixty people. The restaurant gave the entire first floor for the event, which was really nice. The food and wine was plentiful and very good. The service was also very good. There was a buffet table with all kinds of goodies plus a sit-down dinner, and all of... More

We stopped here for dinner on a Wednesday evening at 6:15 PM, and were promptly seated by the windows for a nice view of the frigid environment outside! We were quickly waited upon, and our server brought out a wonderful Pinot Noir and appetizers. We had the Veal dinner and Penne Boulenaise which were both very good. Service great, nice... More

Been a few times, normally phenomenal food. Especially love the gnocchi. Took my wife for her birthday though and the steak was under, then over. Head chef personally came out to apologize and took it off our bill. Honest mistake but they definitely made it up with great customer service. I'll be back.
