Good food & great staff

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.

If you travel for business you know how it is meetings run over, fires to put out and one more item to take care of. Before you know it is 9 pm or later. What are your food options if you are tired of bar food. Via Vite is it. Good food late at night. The menu is not too... More

Via Vite is an EXCELLENT restaurant, and their gluten-free menu includes a variety of pasta dishes, as well as salads, meat and fish entrees. It was extremely busy the day I went to dinner so I sat at the bar, and the service there was just as attentive and personable as if I had been seated in the dining room.... More

This place was packed on a Sat night at 730. Server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Portions not really big, but the food was delicious! Had Bruschetta appetizer and the entrees were Skate wing, butternut squash ravioli and gnocchi and all were excellent. Try the Carmel complexity for dessert. Will definitely come back!

I ordered the Penne Bolognese for lunch. Pasta was a little under cooked for my taste. The server wad often no where to be found. My husband ordered the pizza. He loved it. Probably won't go back.
