I've never been a fan of Via but always seem to give it a chance. Not only do I find the food gets worse each time I go there but the drinks are weak and everything is overpriced. If you are okay with a $14...More

My wife's 60th birthday and Via did not disappoint. Food is so fresh and delicious. The staff is second to none. Attentive yet not crowding you. They took group photos for us. What a great night. We love this place

We picked 5 entrees, 4 wines and had a great set of appetizers for people to choose. Via produced special menus for the event so it was pretty easy for all

Description
In the beautiful hills of Tuscany, and in the cities and villages that dot the countryside we discovered a simple food paradise which we were eager to bring closer to home. We created VIA to offer you those culinary gems from our visits to Italy in combination with old family recipes, as well as American favorites. VIA captures the rare rustic charm of Italian cooking and dining. Italians love to eat outdoors, so we have created a beautiful four-season patio at VIA, so our guests can dine al fresco whenever possible. VIA is the essence of Italian dining - full of charm and great aromas with our open kitchen, complete with brick-oven bread, baked daily; hearty meats, such as tenderloin, pork and chicken slowly turning and roasting on our spit, and the joys of gelato being created right before your eyes. Like Italy, our inspiration, VIA is a picture of contrasts. The restaurant is both urban and rural, sophisticated and casual, old world and remarkably new. It is a place where singles mingle with families, where private conversations are had among festive celebrations. With this environment and our attention to detail where fresh good foods are concerned, the simple act of dining feels like a joyous occasion. In Italian, VIA means "the way." Come to VIA and enjoy "the way" we embrace our travel memories, our family recipes, and American traditions which are so important to us.
