About
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

Recently went to Via midweek to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were seated promptly, not very crowded. Our server was fine, not over the top, but fine. My dinner, Ragu of Meat over Penne was not very good. No problem with the salad or bread,...More

I had the beef braciole. It was dry and tastless. Too bad. The sauce was just added on top. This meat should be cooked in the sauce, like a meatball, to give it flavor. Nothing great about any of the food we had.

Food was great, steak, seafood and spaghetti all good, service was excellent, if you want a quiet romantic dinner you might opt for another place as it is quite noisy for an upscale restaurant.
