While on a quick roadtrip to visit friends in Cincinnati, they suggested Via Vite for Brunch.

Located downtown, overlooking Fountain Square, this proved to be a very good choice. The food was delicious. With the Sunday brunch menu, you choose one item from each of two lists to create your two course meal. You can also order individual items from the menu such as their wood fired pizza’s and pasta dishes if you choose. Our table selected items such as fresh fruit and berry salad, yellow pepper soup, uovo pomodoro, creamy white polenta with italian sausage and fried egg, and “The Best BLT in the City”.

We also couldn’t resist adding a Valhrona Dark Chocolate Creme Brulee for dessert, which we all shared.

The staff was professional, the dining room was well designed with a high vaulted ceiling with a custom branch inspired chandelier. The side wall windows looks like they open all the way up in warmer weather – when we were there it was 25 degrees so thankfully the windows were in the closed position. I do hope to return in the summer and experience the open air version of the dining room.
