Being a bit Thaid-out we decided Via Vai looked a likely spot - they had a pizza oven right there along-side the street after all. We both agreed - it was a mistake and an expensive one at that. The food did not fit the description on the menu - we started with the Prawn and Calamari starter - but... More

The Pizzas are still great as our 1st visit 8 years ago, restaurant has changed location. Staff are too much on top of Clients and you can feel atmosphere is not great with boss beeing around.

My go-to place when I am "Thaid-out" and want a pie! A bit pricy, never a disappointment! BUT, remember that you are in Thailand, and authentic ingredients may not be available! If you don't like canned black olives, avoid any dish that relies on olives for its essence. Similarly, I have eaten in many "Italian" restaurants in Thailand over 25... More

The pizza and pasta was very enjoyable and great value for money, we thoroughly enjoyed it, however service was terrible, we were not welcomed into the restaurant, and the staff seemed more interested in laughing and joking amongst themselves than wanting to serve us. One waitress in particular did not say a word to us as she was taking our... More

We have taken two pizza: margarita and prochutto e fungi, spaghetti carbonara, lasagna, 1/2 liter carafe of white wine and our special order for the chef was a penne with a butter for the daughter. So, I was disappointed with the meal- pizza was too thick, prochutto was common... More

I mean they were friendly and smiling but still this is an Italian restaurant should have a bit of italy in it. The pizza was... More

We do like our Italian food and a friend recommended Via Vai. We ended up going twice! The menus are ace as they have pictures in which we liked. The food was very good. The pizzas were excellent and so was the lasagna. Although the beer isn't too cheap, the food was very well priced and you get a lot... More

The pizzas and garlic breads that we ordered were very good. We had a hearty dinner and it was very economical. The location of the restaurant in the heart of the bustling Chaweng beach road is very nice.

Love it! Been here many times over the years and it has not changed. The new Australian head chef brings a different spin on things especially the deserts. Give it a go!!!
