Via Vanti! is a cute little Italian restaurant in the Mount Kisco train station in Westchester County, NY. It looks a bit small when I first walked up to it. Once entered, I was greeted by eager and smily hostess and waitress. The vibe was easy-going and low-key. The decor was modern chic with a heavy hand on the color red. The place seems to be frequented by the locals.
The food was what I would consider as new Italian, taking influence from here and there, using in season ingredients, and preparing dishes that fit the palates of New Yorkers. I had the Red Quinoa & Grilled Shrimp with chunky avocado and mango salsa. It looked so inviting that I almost forgot to take a picture before completely destroying the plate.
This is Couscous & Grilled Vegetali. As you see here, my friend already dived into the food before I had a chance to photograph it. It looked very inviting and my friend polished it off in no time.
Via Vanti seems to be big on gelato and sorbet, claims to have 18 varieties daily. The menu looks impressive. I will have to try it next time. It was a good night out. Will definitely return to try the gelato.
