Dinner was excellent. the Cioppino, chicken and sausage meatball appetizer and the side salad which is not on the menu of greens and cucumbers tossed in house were fantastic. We also had penne Bolognese and Gnocchi which were very very good as well

Count on good service and great food. The owner is often in the kitchen ensuring his standards are met. Nice place to unwind after work as well.

Cannot say enough good things about Via Vite! Amazing service from our waiter, plus we were personally talked to and thanked by the owner, Cristian. This was all on top of the delicious meal- Yellow Pepper Soup, Boucheron Goat Cheese Salad (which my husband -- who hates goat cheese -- said he loved!), Risotto, and Swordfish. Would highly recommend any... More

Love coming here for the bolognese which is the best in the city. Their other stuff is good too especially if you come for their happy hour specialties. But the bolognese here really is spectacular. I've event gotten Italians to admit that they like the bolognese and that it's pretty close to what you'd get in Italy. As the location... More

We recently returned to Via Vite with a friend who was in town from Toronto. We enjoyed an excellent meal with creative and delicious appetizers and memorable entrees. We always enjoy this restaurant. Our guest was impressed.

We often sit at the bar and on this visit some of the other guests moved over to make room for us. The mussels were great and the fish stew excellent. The penne bolognese was great too! This is a great place for either a blow out meal or a simple supper.

The prices are in line with the market and you will walk out the door planning your next trip to Via Vite. I also loved the casual atmosphere which only added to the comfort of this... More
