I've been here several times. I prefer lunch to dinner, partly due to price difference. The salads are good, but the pizza is fantastic. There is a thin crust fig and prosciutto pizza that's out of this world. I only have it 4 stars because...More

Our server was fantastic! The food was great. The portions were rather small though for the price. It’s a must try even if it is only once.

We recently visited Via for a family celebration. In my opinion, the food is the best Italian food in the area, the service is terrific and the atmosphere is great.

Had stopped going to this place a few years ago as we had bad experiences in the past. We thought we would give it another try and is just over priced for what you get. Terrible food. Much better options in Worcester now.

Specials and cocktails are amazing! If you order before 7. My favorite is the blueberry martini! It’s like liquid dessert! The bartenders and waiters are amazing.

Get the salmon salad at this place. It's a very satisfying and tasty light lunch or dinner. I think about it anytime I drive by the place. I wish there were more time in a day.

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

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.
