The small quaint place on the corner of the fountain square in downtown Cincinnati appeared to be something that would be delicious and appealing as far as Italian restaurants go. Unfortunately we were not able to eat there because the wait time was kind of...More

Upscale restaurant on Fountain Square! This is a delicious restaurant, the goat cheese salad is a must have! Delicious food and exceptional service!

This restaurant has a great location and ambiance. Their food is very good. I think they they need some work on front of house (the host staff seem a bit disorganized). Also, although the food is excellent, please don't advertise a salad as 'charred corn',...More

We had scallops, octopus, and arugula salad. I don't scallops since only 2 scallops are $16. We really liked octopus which lightly cooked and cane with potatoes. This is a great location, center of downtown, the restaurant was full for all night. This is a...More

Service was great and the 2nd floor outside deck made for a lovely brunch with my husband. Not a fan of the meal that I tried, but the staff went out of their way to accommodate my requests.

My family and I ate dinner here this weekend and really enjoyed it. We ate on the top outside deck, and pretty much had it to ourselves. Most of our group ate Pizzas and the rest had some form of a bolognese dish. Everyone was...More

We have been to Via Vite many times. We decided to see how they tackle Restaurant Week. The 35.00/per person menu appealed to us online because we prefer 3 savory dishes as opposed to dessert. The Heirloom and Tomato and Watermelon salad had great flavor,...More

This Italian (more milanese feel meaning elegant versus family style) hipster spot meets fine Italian dining spot. You can enjoy a great cocktail in summer or something warm during winter, not far from a toasty, open pizza oven. Your first impression of Via Vite is...More
