Recently, upon their return from traveling through Scotland and the U.K., Alex and Tim decided to drive down and meet everyone for dinner. We hadn’t gotten to see them in a while, and wanted to pick a good place to eat. After much debate (we are lucky to have so many options!), and considering that they had never been to downtown Cincinnati, we finally decided on Via Vite. It’s been a while since Adam and I last ate there (which was also when we reviewed it for Do Downtown Restaurant Week), so we thought it was worth giving them another visit to see if they were still as good as we remembered.
Luckily we were just ahead of rush hour traffic, so our drive from Mason to downtown Cincinnati was only about 20 minutes instead of an hour or more – though from Alex’s constant chirping of ‘Are we there yet?’ you wouldn’t have known it. We were also lucky enough to find an awesome parking space in the Fountain Square garage right below Via Vite.
We were seated almost immediately without reservation, although we did ask to be seated on the patio up on their second floor. It was a cool end-of-summer evening, which is the perfect weather to be eating out on a patio!
