Oh my word, when I found Viafore's last year, right after I moved to Tacoma, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. PERFECT!!!! I can't say enough great things about this family-run business. I hope they stay in business forever! Not only is the food fresh, fantastic, totally authentic Italian like Mama makes, but the service is completely original, heartfelt, caring and faboo!
When I asked them to cater my daughter's baptism party, the guy said, "Is it in 6 months or so? We're pretty far booked out." So I asked about a simpler party platter instead, because I just HAD to have some of this delightful, delicious, and completely heartfelt food!
Not only that, but since they've lived here forever, I got great "locals-only" advice, kinda like a Judy's book from this guy's mouth. Told me the little sweet deals, a lot about my parish, the best schools and options for kids in the area. Can't put a price on that kind of solid, time-tested advice, like a neighbor talking over the fence to you. It really helped me.
Pastas, sauces and everything were totally fresh-made and I had to pull over to eat that incredible pasta salad!
WHAT A TRUE GEM!!!
