Came in a serving dish ..... unbelievable! Calamari was perfect .... a mass of seafood on a bed of greens. Everyone (five others) were pleased with their choices. Service was attentive without hovering; she was also pleasant and knowledgeable. An excellent experience all around.

This restaurant in the heart of San Luis Obispo has the best Italian type atmosphere I have yet to find. This is especially true of the patio strewn with flower covered vines. It was quite reminiscent of a couple of the trattorias we visited last year in Italy. The food was very good but did not get my "best ever... More

We stopped by Vieni Vai Trattoria on a short midday stop in town. As we stood looking at the menu in the doorway some patrons praised our 2 dogs. They asked the staff if we could bring them to the patio at the back of the restaurant and so we were led to sit in a lovely shaded patio. The... More

Came here during a bus tour of the area. We had 90 minutes to eat and then get back so that the bus could take us to the hotel. We had the cioppino and a pasta ragu so really not a hard order to fill. We waited over 1 hour to get our food then had to scarf it down.... More

The food was terrible. We sat at the bar to have a glass of wine. It smelled so good we decided to get a table & have dinner.We started with fried Calamari which was under cooked & tasted oily. The server asked how it was & I told her not my favorite because of the above description. Oh she said.... More

My son and I went and both of us have travelled extensively and we are also Italian citizens. We were really disappointed with this restaurant. His pizza was undercooked and my eggplant parmesan was flat. But the place was full so maybe our palates are more refined. At least I'd like to think so. The service was great but we... More

We went to this restaurant in search of wood fired pizza. We ordered calamari and a large pizza. Both items were good, but we got both of them at the same time, so we had to gobble.

I liked this place but my better half didnt like the dish (fish pasta special) she was served though I thought it was fine. But we always agree to disagree ;-) Lot of wine options , good place for couples, great ambiance.
