We ordered dinner, and when it arrived all of our dinners were cold. Not lukewarm. Cold. One person sent it back asking to have them warm it. Her dinner arrived after we were all finished.

Via Vite serves a variety of tasty Italian dishes for lunch, happy hour and dinner. The atmosphere is casual, but chic. In good weather you can enjoy the outdoor seating on the upper level. After your meal, enjoy a stroll around Fountain Square.
