Via Vite

Executive chef and owner Cristian Pietoso is a passionate champion for the cooking traditions of his native Italy. His pizza crusts are canvases for simple ingredients with an old country pedigree—prosciutto crudo and speck, rapini, and spicy sausage among them. His exquisitely judged soups, hearty seafood stew, and citronette-coated arugula salad are a testimony to the virtues of restraint. Count on Via Vite for a lunch that veers from the ordinary with a few shavings of truffle; for a Sunday brunch that soothes the regret of too much Saturday night with Parmigiano-laced frittata; and for a weekend kickoff with an assortment of salumi and a glass of sparkling on the outdoor terrace.
