The decor in this place is definitely its strength, the food is just ok. Truffle fries are one of their signature items. Was surprised to see they were shoestring fries, not remarkable. I have had the carbonara pizza (interesting idea, I'd try that again), tomato...More

Service was good, but not great. A smile would have added a lot. Nice atmosphere and variety on menu. As we have eaten at many establishments in this area, the expense of our meals / drinks did not match the quality of what was received....More

I was very excited to try this restaurant as we love 111 Chop House and figured with the same owners and popularity of Via that it would be good. We were both very disappointed with our dinners and will not be returning here.

We picked 5 entrees, 4 wines and had a great set of appetizers for people to choose. Via produced special menus for the event so it was pretty easy for all

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.
