My wife and I have been to via45 several times and it is a homerun every time. From the atmosphere to the service to the food they get everything right. This place has become our go to "date night" spot. Keep in mind its byob (which i think is great) and the menu changes daily. (Which i also think is... More

You won't go wrong when you eat here. The two owners are amazing - they will prepare the food to meet your needs. If you have any dietary restrictions they will happily accomodate you. The food is delicious! It is always made from scratch and each time you go there will be something new to try.

One individual was ordering the rib eye and requested that it be cook medium pink not purple. The waiter came back and said chef will only cook the steak RARE. It not like we were... More

Went to dinner with 2 other couples last night and this establishment was my choice. Just after enjoying our appetizers the bus person spilled a bowl of sauce all over one of the gentlemen at our table. Yes they gave him multiple napkins and cleaned the chair, the evening was less enjoyable after that. Although the food was very good... More

These folks work hard at their craft. We shared the antipasto - simple, light and delicious. Our crusted tuna steak was beautifully prepared, light and tasty; and the pasta/pear entrée was unexpectedly spectacular - the pasta done perfectly with just the right hint of pear. Creative and unusual preparations pepper the daily new menu. Our server was perfect - attentive,... More

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

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
