“This prime spot could do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I ate dinner here over labor day weekend. The service was friendly... But lacking attentiveness. The kitchen could not time our meals to come out together and the end result was a cold steak with dried-out looking veggies, and a pizza that came out a few minutes later.
We may caught them on a bad night, because the atmosphere and menu were great... It just wasn't being executed by the staff well at all.

“Good quality Italian, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

A unique menu for Italian. Good food, a tad pricey, but tasty. Service was excellent. Located just of the Fountain Square in downtown.

“Always a great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We've gone to Via Vite with a large group, for Easter with our family, brunch and as a date night. It's got a great location on fountain square. Also, love the interior decor - hip but comfortable. We've taken our kids there too, they've been very accomodating and the kids LOVED it! Great wine and cocktails too!!!

I've only been there once but the food was excellent and the service was perfect. Would like to return but haven't had the chance.
