My wife and I go to Cafe Via about every 6 weeks for a nice, peaceful dinner. Great food, excellent service, and classy atmosphere. The specials are usually very good.

The staff was very accommodating for the event we had. Appetizers were great. Service top notch. The weather cooperated and we were able to be on the outside patio making the occasion even better. Great food. Great service.
