    Some fantastic pizza in a very noisy room. We’ve tried some of the other dishes as well and would say it’s solid but average fare for a county that’s not experiencing a shortage of Italian restaurants. We like to come here for pizza and if you haven’t tried their pizza it’s quite good. While not over the top it’s a solid go to and we expect to be here regularly

    After recently moving to Red Bank, a few friends and I stopped by Via Sposito for the first time last night. We loved it! The atmosphere of the restaurant was comfortable, and it is somewhere you can dress fancy or dress casual. Our server, Marina, was extremely kind and helpful with everything we needed. The other staff we interacted with was very kind as well. For appetizers, we had the clams, sausage scarpariello, rice balls, and mozzarella in carozza. For entrees, we had the chicken parmigiana, linguine with clams, pork chop, and gnocchi. For dessert (which we were totally stuffed by), we had the tartufo. They also made it special for the birthday we were celebrating. Everything was excellent! We also really enjoyed that this restaurant is BYOB, but they have options you can purchase by the bottle. We will definitely be back!

    I made a reservation for an outside table ( that was a choice ) . I was told when we arrived that they don’t outside tables anymore . This was quite disappointing. I should have read the menu ahead to find out that you can’t get a glass of wine, only a bottle. I heard other patrons ask for a glass of wine too and also an outside table .

    Had dinner with my gf, and sat outside for Red Bank's Broadwalk. Had made a reservation and was seated quickly, although we were located right next to the curb, with the waiter's station very close by one seat. Had to move our table over. Our server was welcoming and reeled off a long list of specials. We had come to Via Sposito as they had a fig/arugula/prosciutto pizza. We were fans of this same pizza at Medusa in Asbury Park, which closed last year. We were hoping it would be as good here at Via Sposito. We ordered the shrimp/bacon app, and also the fig pizza. Our server said it was a 12" personal pizza, giving the impression it was small and for one person. We decided to keep the pizza and then add another calamari app. The server highly recommended the calimari with breadcrumbs, rather than the fried ones. So we went for that ($24). We were served 4 delicious bread rolls and olive oil. We each had only one roll apiece. Shrimp/bacon app, on broccoli rabe, was tasty. But the calimari was a very large portion. We could not finish the calimari, leaving about 1/3rd. Then the pizza came. Thin crust, and tasted fine (didn't match Medusa's). Although not a full size pizza, it still had six slices, so to us it was bigger than a personal size. After the first two apps and bread, we could only eat one slice each, and had to take the four slices plus the remaining calimari home. If I had known that the pizza was a full size slices, I would have not ordered the calimari app. Worst of the evening was that it took a good 15 minutes after requesting the check to actually get the check, and then have someone come to the table with the handheld device to pay. Way too long...we were just sitting there waiting. Also, the other server with the device handed it to me to fill out, and the automatic tip choices were 20%, 22.5%, and 25%. If I wanted to leave less than 20%, I'd have to hit "custom tip" and then enter my chosen amount. Didn't like that option.
