Visited this restaurant for a private function. What a great location in Fountain Square!! They made an assortment of awesome appetizers and cooked up a bunch of brick oven pizzas! Super tasty! Live music, great service and a perfect place for people watching!

Went there with our fussy baby and instead of asking us to leave the chef asked if he could help. They even brought an extra side of there delicious brussel spouts to our table. The food was amazing and very well priced. If I'm ever back in Cincinnati this will be my first stop.

We had visited Via Vite one time before while attending a concert in Cincinnati, and we were both pleasantly surprised at the quick, courteous and professional service we had. Well, this time around, nothing changed. They still have a staff that is knowledgeable of the menu and offer recommendations that will have your taste buds buzzing. I had the Stone... More

This is a great place on Fountain Square for lunch or dinner. We've been here twice, and loved both times. We had pizza this time, and added on a side of the polenta. You have to try this polenta! Great wine list. You should definitely eat here when you are craving Italian food.
