Pleasant ambiance in a downtown setting. Cozy restaurant with some excellent reviews and a little pricey. What were they thinking? Interesting salad offerings included Watermelon & Feta or Radicchio & Endive. We tried both. The watermelon was cold and wet but tasteless, the sprinkling of feta didn't help (desperately needed salt). The endive and radicchio were bitter and the vinaigrette... More

VIA 45 has a menu that changes daily due to the freshness of what the owners Claudette & Lauren purchase and their creativity inspires them. It is a quaint rustic setting that will make you feel as if you are in Tuscany. I tried some Barramundi (Australian Sea Bass) that was seared and crunchy outside and soft and delicious inside....

Some might say this place had character. Every table was different. They looked like what you might scout from flea markets. The waitresses could be your nice neighbors. It felt "homey". Their menu was a sheet of handwritten copy and changed regularly, but not easy to read for me. Their food also felt homemade. Presentation left something to be desired.... More

Via 45 Is a great place to dine. Usually the food is cooked to order every time. If you are in a hurry this will not be a place for you. Bring your own drinks Buon appetito!

Mid-week dinner and we waited over an hour for our entrees (which were very good), but really? Likely will not be going again.

You won't go wrong when you eat here. The two owners are amazing - they will prepare the food to meet your needs. If you have any dietary restrictions they will happily accomodate you. The food is delicious! It is always made from scratch and each time you go there will be something new to try.

Thank eols
