The fettuccine milano loads forks with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, basil, garlic, and goat cheese ($14), and the bistro steak filet anchors plates with beef medallions in chianti sauce and a crispy risotto cake ($17).

VIA Downer Pizzeria
In the warm spirit of Italian-style cooking, VIA Downer comfort diners with a hearty selection of homemade pastas and pizzas, which were described as "beautifully crisp" by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. A parade of palate-popular dishes emerges from the restaurant’s open kitchen flaunting bowls of al dente fettuccine milano draped in a flavorful blanket of tangy goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and fresh basil. VIA Downer's menu also accommodates special diets with plentiful gluten-free options, from smoked salmon crostini to gluten-free garlic pizzas topped with cheese and grilled portobello. Diners break bread within the restaurant’s cool, laid-back setting with brightly painted modern art and exposed brick walls strong enough to withstand huffs and puffs from a hungry pack of wolves.
