Description: In the beautiful hills of Tuscany, and in the cities and villages that dot the countryside we discovered a simple food paradise which we were eager to bring closer to home. We created VIA to offer you those culinary gems from our visits to Italy in combination with old family recipes, as well as American favorites. VIA captures the rare rustic charm of Italian cooking and dining. Italians love to eat outdoors, so we have created a beautiful four-season patio at VIA, so our guests can dine al fresco whenever possible. VIA is the essence of Italian dining - full of charm and great aromas with our open kitchen, complete with brick-oven bread, baked daily; hearty meats, such as tenderloin, pork and chicken slowly turning and roasting on our spit, and the joys of gelato being created right before your eyes. Like Italy, our inspiration, VIA is a picture of contrasts. The restaurant is both urban and rural, sophisticated and casual, old world and remarkably new. It is a place where singles mingle with families, where private conversations are had among festive celebrations. With this environment and our attention to detail where fresh good foods are concerned, the simple act of dining feels like a joyous occasion. In Italian, VIA means "the way." Come to VIA and enjoy "the way" we embrace our travel memories, our family recipes, and American traditions which are so important to us.

Delicious meal! Lobster risotto was amazing! Caprese salad - yum! Service was great. We did not have a reservation on a Saturday, but they still accommodated us.

We dined on a busy Saturday during 2018 Worcester Restaurant Week. Their menu was one of the best to choose from. We ate well. The service was great. We enjoyed great cocktails and creative appetizers. The shrimp was beautiful and tasted even better. Our dinners were really amazing and perfectly seasoned.

It had been several years away from VIA. We are so glad we returned. We'll make sure to dine here more often.

We recently had a baby shower at Via. We had a private room with about 30 people.
Maria, who was the event coordinator, was pleasant and very easy to work with. She was very organized and every details was handled correctly. The food was excellent. A lot of the folks raved about the lemon pancakes and the salmon salad. We were able to order off the full brunch menu. We had two appetizers for our guests and a dessert. Thanks to Paige and Sarrina that service was also excellent. Many of the shower attendees commented that it was one of the best showers they ever attended.

Just visited the Via for dinner with my kids as they USUALLY prefer this restaurant over others in the area. Not one of my favorites but they wanted to go. We didn't have reservations (which I recommend ) so we were walk ins. Sat in the outside enclosed patio area which was fine. To sum it up everyone overall wasn't impressed with the food, not awful but below expectations. waitress service is a team and they were both pleasant but a bit overwhelmed with business so not everything clicked as you might expect. They offer valet which is nice for a $3 charge plus your TIP !! don't forget. We all left and I gave them I told you so speech about this place. I am sure they will go back again as this was not the norm for them but I think there is much better choices on the strip to choose from that are better quality food for a better price on your wallet. We were there at 5:30 and by 6pm the place was packed, but they do have a nice bar area if you can find a seat- GOOD LUCK !!

I brought my teenager here for a celebratory dinner as pasta is her favorite meal. We shared the fresh ricotta with honey and grillled crostini appetizer and it was scrumptious. My daughter’s shrimp scampi was also excellent. My meal was the pan seared scallops. The flavors of the accompaniments to the scallops were good, but the scallops themselves were underwhelming. They were the small ones and not as sweet tasting as scallops should be. The espresso brownie Sunday was enjoyed by my daughter, though so rich she was unable to finish it.
