This place is amazing. We've been going here for as long as we can remember, my wife and I have tried almost everything on the menu and it's all great. The service is always spot on, and the food only gets better - we're really sad to see that it's closing. I'm also gluten free, and they do THE BEST JOB at catering to that. - try the gluten free Da Vinci - add Chicken - while you still can!

One of my very favorite places to eat in the city. Prices are very good, especially for lunch. Great food every time. Service has been excellent every time.

Via serves Glutton Free Pizzas and also has a Glutton Free Pasta. They allow you to order the toppings you want on your pizza and put it on a GF crust. The food is good and the prices reasonable. I have no negative comments on this place.

I got food poisoning. That wasn't a very fun night on the bathroom floor.

Paisano pizza: wow. If you like spice baked into the pizza, this is where it's at. Also had the pepperoni which was also delicious. Somebody really cares about pizza here. Sprecher root beer for me, which is great (beats soda on the hose). I'm not a beer drinker, but they have a lot of specialties on tap. Downer is a cool vibe. I'll be back. Parking meters don't need to be filled after 6pm, and I was able to park only a block away.

the only things i ever get - grilled calamari and the garlic portabella pizza. I'de never had squid any way but fried before, so I didn't have high hopes for their grilled calamari, but this is stuff is delicious. The garlic pizzas are all winners. I was told that the owner or head chef makes the garlic sauce at home - there is nobody for me to bribe for the recipe. Depending on who's in the kitchen the pizza can vary between a more cracker crust with a thin layer of garlicky cheese or a thicker chewy crust with an oozing garlic sauce topped with molten cheese. Either way - I'm happy. Their drinks are super, their servers (especially at lunch) are friendly - give them a shot.

*CLOSED* It's on the website and there are multiple articles online about it, yet, Google wants to leave it marked as open.
