A new Italian restaurant called Via will open this week in the recently closed Tutti Santi space on the southwest corner of Greenfield and Warner in Gilbert.
The kitchen – which will offer pizza, pasta, and paninis – will be headed by Benjamin Romine, the executive chef who left Ahwatukee fave Va Bene late last year after eight years.
Romine has revived the space’s centerpiece – a wood-burning oven (pictured) that sat idle at Tutti Santi – making Via one of the East Valley’s few spots for wood-fired pizzas (all 14 inches, $15-$18).
Pasta dishes include linguini pomodoro fresco ($15), penne arrabiatta ($15), and shrimp scampi ($17). There also will be a ravioli of the day.
The Pear Manchego – Spanish chorizo, manchego cheese, pear slices, and fig jam on ciabatta – headlines the roster of paninis ($12-$14 with salad or fries).
Prices will be about $2 cheaper on the lunch menu, Romine says, adding that almost everything will be made in-house, including pizza dough, sauces, and dressings.
