What a nice find in downtown Cincinnati. We were in town for baseball, staying at the Renaissance. Found recommendations regarding Vie Vita on line and it was a short pleasant walk from our hotel. We were welcomed warmly by the hostess and immediately seated. We had a reservation, but it was obviously a slow night. Our waitress, Awar, made a... More

Had a lovely dinner here for my birthday. The food was exquisite, and the atmosphere as well. Definitely a great place to go for a special occasion. Highly recommend the gnocchi.

We went in June. We ordered five courses, sharing some, and each dish was excellent. We had their eel appetizer and lamb shank, and Creme brûlée. The service that night was not great, but the food made up for it.

Very classy upscale restaurant. We ate dinner and it was excellent. The food was freshly prepared with fresh ingredients. You could tell the chef cared about each dish. The wait staff was excellent also.

Lovely place to escape the heat of summer for brunch. Food was delicious. I had the Tuscan breakfast, others in my party had the french toast and pancakes with berries. I'd say (as with many places to eat) brunch and lunch are better value than dinner.

One of my favorite spots to eat on the Square. Their outdoor dining is sweet and overlooks Fountain Square for a great people watching. My friend loves their lasagna, I love their salmon and we both love their pizzas. Have never had a bad meal there. Excellent service too.

While the food is tasty and flavorful, the amount paid for the food received is an atrocity. I cannot recommend Via Vite.
