This is one of my favorite places on Shrewsbury Street. It is a little pricey but the food is excellent and I have never been disappointed. Worth the wait and they have an enclosed outside area too.

Found Via via Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try while driving through Worcester. We were given complimentary bread and dipping oil upon arriving, which was excellent (we raved about it so much they gave us a second helping). We ordered their truffle fries...More

The venue is pretty. Service slow albeit it's a Fri night. I ordered the bruschetta. Looked pretty but the bread was soggy. I didn't finish it nor did I order an entree. Was not impressed.

Considering Via for a wedding rehearsal dinner, about 30 people. Did you have everyone order off the menu, or did you preorder dinner selections? Will they serve dishes family style or do a buffet set up? Thanks.

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.
