Reviews for Via Maestra 42

So happy to see that Via Maestra 42 has received some recognition as Runner-up for Best Italian Food in SB through the SB Independent. They truly make it an Italian dining adventure each time we arrive. And the servers are always helpful in recommending new dishes, and pair them nicely with their extensive list of Italian wines. Keep an eye out for the daily specials, and try to save room for the many Italian dessert specialties. Always very good. Conveniently located on full review

Sometimes the service isn't the fastest because this place has very limited space and the kitchen seems to be small, but the staff and the space itself are absolutely charming! The food here is great, too, everything tastes like it was made from scratch and that's probably because everything actually is... it's the perfect place for fresh and authentic Italian. My only recommendation / warning is not to come with a large group.

We came here after a recommendation from our Hotel. The place was packed. I had a salad from the specials of the night. It was fantastic. It was a octopus salad with greens. The Octopus was so tender and tasty. I had the pastas with sausages and a great mild spiced sauce. The service was great. Everything was so good we came back a second nite. The regular house salad was very good and the Ossobuco just fell off the bone. Great place....
