“Best Lasagna Ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I wanted a nice filling meal and not from a chain. I ordered the lasagna and it was amazing. Fresh made pasta sheets layered with bolognese sauce and cream sauce. Amazing. Served with a side of sauce and cream; I used to dip each bite into. Great atmosphere even though a band was playing by the fountain. We could have a conversation and watch was going on in the square.


Wine selections looked amazing but wasn't able to sample that night.

“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Great food. it was Friday evening so we sat at the table for about 15 minutes before anyone ever waited on us but they were quite busy. They ran out of lasagna which is what I was looking forward to but the meal I did get was delicious.

“Outstanding Service, Delicious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

We visited this restaurant last night before attending a concert at US Bank Arena. Our server, Arwa, was beyond wonderful. She was attentive, knowledgeable and sensitive to a possible time constraint on our part. We orderd the Soup of the Day, The Honeymoon Salad and the Asparagus and Mascarpone Ravioli with Lobster. I recommend all three. My daughter was so pleased with the Ravioli that she raved about it to our server who promptly notified the chef. He them came out to meet us and express his gratitude. We'll definitely return to Via Vite to sample the rest of the menu.

“BEST BLT!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

Last weekend my boyfriend and I went to visit his family in Cincinnati. We stopped here for brunch and we asked to be seated outside because the weather was very nice. We were take to the rooftop which had a great view!

I ordered a BLT and added a friend egg- SIMPLY MOUTH WATERING!!!I have ordered BLT's elsewhere....and NOWHERE have I ever had one this good. The bacon was cooked just right....and it was piled high on the sandwich!! The little potatoes were delicious as well!

I could not have asked for a better breakfast/brunch sandwhich....and company of course.

“Authentic brick oven pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Visited this restaurant for a private function. What a great location in Fountain Square!! They made an assortment of awesome appetizers and cooked up a bunch of brick oven pizzas! Super tasty! Live music, great service and a perfect place for people watching!
