Great view, good food....but nothing over the top. The service was great, the restaurant is clean, and I would go again. The food was good but nothing specific I would go back for

Love this Italian restaurant. The food is delicious. It's a quaint little place but they do have a back room and can accommodate larger parties as well. We have had several work celebrations here for about 13 people with no problems. Weather you are looking for a great place to eat or have a celebration I highly recommend this Italian... More

My daughter and I ate here during the Christmas holidays. The restaurant was crowded so we ate at the Chef's bar. We didn't know what to expect but we were so pleased with the food. The bruchetta with goat cheese was like no other. I could have eaten several slices of it. While the restaurant is a bit pricey, the... More

We stumbled on this place, but it is in a great part of Cincinnati and had a great brunch. We will totally return.

Can't say enough about the wonderful dinner we had. Rigatoni al'Amatriciana and crispy fried gnocchi were phenomenal as was the brandade bruschetta to start with. Great wine list and a lovely visit by the manager Maggie made for a perfect evening. Complements to the chef who is fantastic!!

From the service to the food to the ambiance this place was great. Far from the spaghetti & meatball restaurants this place actually had authentic Italian food.

I had dinner here with some coworkers when we were in Cincinnati for the night. It was delicious! Everyone loved what they got. I had gnocchi for my main course - it was cooked so well. The flavors were awesome. We also had a shared plate of brussel sprouts that was very good. The inside was cute and pretty small.... More

If you like Italian food, this is the place to go. Via Vite is a hip, happening restaurant with delicious food, and amazing service right when you walk in the door. Recommend requesting a rooftop table as they have great views of fountain square and the city.

Thank sailorchica
