Went to Via 45 on Saturday 9/24 with a couple that had never been there. They loved it as much as we did. Have only had one problem ever with this restaurant, and that was a while ago. Glad I gave them another chance, It is well worth it. Will continue to frequent this restaurant. Our waiter Anthony was great.

My husband and I are expecting baby #2 and decided to get in one last great meal before his arrival. Despite having to take an early (5:30) reservation we were so happy with our choice. The restaurant was full upon arrival. The food was amazing as always. We shared an arugula and melon salad with prosciutto to start then moved... More

We ordered calamari as an ap and it... More

Our first trip to Via 45, as suggested by our friends Pat & Rich, who made the reservations and joined us on this culinary adventure. One of many small Italian BYOB's in Red Bank (can't hold more than 40 people I wouldn't think), with a daily-changing "hand-written" menu that promises to please any palate. The salads are suggested as edible... More

Five of us went here for a friends birthday. Her husband made reservations well in advance because he was told it would be difficult to get a reservation. After the rave reviews we were all very excited to try it out. The place is so pretty and warm. You feel very welcome as soon as you walk in the door.... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is cooked to order so if there are some ingredients you do not want on the food they can be removed. Its BYOB allows us to bring the wine of our choice without having to pay restaurant prices. The owners work in the kitchen so they are always there. Try it... More

I went here while visiting friends in the area and this is one of the best meals I have had in a long time! The atmosphere is quaint and the food was extremely flavorful and not over salty like a lot of restaurants in the U.S. I would definitely would return here!

Great service with the best meal. From app to entrée, just magnificent. We will be back. I wanted a nice place I have not been to before for my wife's birthday and I made the right choice.
