This restaurant has good food and good service. The brussel sprouts are worth the trip. They are roasted with balsamic and are amazing.

Via Vite sits on Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati. A great place to have lunch on the 2nd floor deck overlooking the square. Excellent Italian food and pizza.

I love going there in the holidays and sitting on their heated patio overlooking the ice skating rink and tree. The food is always amazing, wine list is great, and the happy hour is phenomenal.
