Via Mare is a whimsical Nantucket restaurant from the folks behind Ventuno. Every visit is a journey through the Venetian tradition of small-plate dining and spirited drinking in charming taverns, known as bacari. Inspired by the Italian city’s long history as a central hub in the spice trades, the menu highlights locally-sourced fare from the garden and sea alongside an approachable, eclectic wine list with bottles from around the world, and a cocktail list that emphasizes the exotic.
Designed by Roman and Williams (Ace Hotel New York and The Standard, High Line), Via Mare is one of the most unique restaurants in Nantucket. With tables for locals and wanderers alike, you can enjoy fine dining in a bohemian living room-cum-bar, the intimate dining room, an open-air terrace, and street-side, cafe-style seating.
Described as “Italian-ish,” you find favorites such as crostini, fritto misto, and tagliatelle, as well as fish, steak, and chicken plates. Join us every Sunday for a more casual experience, when you can kick back with our famous Via fried chicken, an unreal burger, and bay scallop rolls.
Dinner: 5:30 – 9:30
Tuesday – Saturday
