Welcome to VIA UNO!

Welcome to VIA UNO!

From Calabria to Campania, Rome to Naples, and Potenza to Cosenza, the many culinary flavors of Southern Italy’s regions find their way to VIA UNO’s cucina daily. We are proud to share with you recipes from our families, friends and chefs, both traditional and contemporary. Our menu features farm-to-table foods that are hand selected daily from farms along the coast and in the San Francisco Bay Area. This style of purchasing is the true Italian trattoria way: using local, regionally grown and artisan produced fare, and preparing these ingredients in the Italian Slow Food Movement style.

To Italians, a meal is more than just food – it’s an experience, it’s a memory, and it’s an event to be shared with family and friends. Welcome to VIA UNO!

Sunset Magazine, October 2014

“Dining has always been a dicey proposition in Half Moon Bay, the main options being high-end hotel fare or fried fish from a walk-up window. In March, two Italian immigrants opened Via Uno, where they installed a big wood-burning oven that turns out terrific pizzas. Try the capricciosa, with artichokes, mushrooms, olives, and Italian ham. Crisp-skinned grilled seabass on fennel is good too, especially when paired with a dry white from the Old World-heavy wine list.” -Tam Putnam
