“Good italian food for all the family!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

We spent a week in Cincinnati and ate here 3 times. The first night we arrived in town late in the day and we all enjoyed the food after a long day of travelling. Pizzas are big and should be shared. Most of the meals are of a decent size.

The staff were very good with the hostess remembering us on our second and third visits. On one occassion my daughter and I wanted to share the Spagetti and caesar salad, and they divided the food up so we had a plate of each. very thoughtful.

Is this cheap Italian, no, but if you want good food, service and ambience then I had no issues with what we paid.

We all enjoyed eating there on each occasion.

And you must have the caramelised brussels sprouts, they were fantastic.

Would happily go there if we ever get to the Queen City again.

“A little over rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

I have been to via vite many times- their food is really good (pizzas and sandwiches especially) but thy are pretty overpriced and the service is just ok. I think a trip to over the Rhine is a better use for time in the downtown area

“Great Italian Food”

Via Vite is a modern Italian restaurant. Get the rigatoni. It's phenomenal. They have great ambiance. Their salads are good too.

“Great ingredients make great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

New nice facility with a modern feel. The lighting was a little too bright for my preference, but otherwise the ambiance was nice. Alison was attentive and very knowledgeable regarding the menu. The Bruschetta app is a sampling if great variations on a classic dish. The salads are fantastic. The Mrs had a salad with goat cheese and a truffle vinaigrette that was ridiculous. The Gnocci was awesome and the tiramisu was delicious. A great meal.

“Tasty food, good service, fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Every time I go, I find something different to try on the menu and the service is really good. The wine list is strong as well. The atmosphere is professional at lunch and fun and/or romantic at dinner. Enjoy!
