Upon walking in, noticed each piece of furniture was unique,nothing matched. Its as if someone just decided to put together a restaraunt. Even the dishes were each different. It conveyed a relaxed atmosphere, not pretentious, as if you were in someone's home. Plenty of room between tables, and good acoustics, never had to yell to be heard. Our server, Jeffrey,... More

The host of the evening informed me that I had eaten there over 100 times. It is true I eat there very often. Another time, I was informed I had eaten there over 200 times, and I believe I am now over 300 times. There is a reason for that. Many reasons. Friendly, efficient service. Excellent food mad from excellent... More

Had dinner last night at Via 45, and I must say they out did themselves once again. We started off with the mozzarella salad which was amazing. I had the pork chop milanese and my hubby had chicken parm. Both were outstanding. I would definitely highly recommend this restaurant. You usually need to make reservations well in advance.

We arrived on time, our table was ready. Our server came over to introduce herself and told us about the the specials that were not on... More

We had a reservation here last Friday based on recommendation from another couple. They were quick to seat us and patient as we scoured the menu. The menu changes often apparently and the hand written menu is a nice touch. We ordered four appetizers which were a bit too many if you want to enjoy your meal. We had the... More

Second time here and I can now write an objective review. The food is the freshest and innovative moderately priced in the area. No just talk. The owners are the chefs and the pride shows. Went for Mothers Day and booked it weeks in advance after learning that Via 45 books fast. Table was waiting and they immediately offered you... More

Hesitant to share as already can be hard to get a reservation here, but, hands down, best restaurant in RB. Not fast food - in the best sense - fresh ingredients, and made to order! Consistently superb! To add to the overall experience, the staff is friendly, and patient with questions, you dont feel rushed through your meal, and the... More

Via 45 has consistently offered well prepared food. They have started offering some wine tasting dinners which sound very good and would be a good way to try the restaurant an have the food paired with the wines. The restaurant is run by two women. One being the chef, who has accommodated changes and special requests a couple of times.... More

The food is delicious with many choices to choose from. Service was excellent. The owner of the restaurant is there most times to greet you with a smile - a very pleasant man.

Very tough to get a table in this small gem of a restaurant. The menu changes every day but the food is excellent. The staff and owners are friendly and make it their business to remember your name.
