Via Vite is a stylish upscale restaurant serving modern Italian cuisine. You can be equally appropriate dressed to impress or stylishly untidy. I stopped by late on a Tuesday evening (9:15pm), and the bar and restaurant were both pretty busy but I was seated without...More

Somewhat hidden on the fountain square this is a gem of a place for great Italian fare. Not a big list of menu item but what they service is absolutely best. Won’t be disappointed- check it out. Good drink menu to go with.

We went here for dinner before a concert and were pleasantly surprised with the food. They were very accommodating to any substitutions we asked for. The gnocchi was amazing.

More casual than Nicolas but terrific. The Branziino was excellent on top of the sofrita. Lasagna was a gigantic portion. Seafood with fresh pasta terrific as were the Mussel app and gnocci. All around nice Friday evening. Would try their pizzas.
