I ate at VIA UNO Cucina as part of a large rehearsal dinner (20+ people) on August 31. The food was ok but nothing special - pizza crust was dry and the pasta was too salty. The service was ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. One of the waitresses...More

Good reviews here and elsewhere made us choose this place. Fairly large disappointment. Appetizers: Not very tasty bread, lukewarm soup, uninspired bruschetta.

Via Uno is not your typical Italian restaurant of meatballs and lasagna . This is a Calabrese style restaurant ( southern part of Italy) with a different menu. New cooks have arrived and the menu has changed somewhat. Food has always been very good and...More
