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 only Calamari was on the plate...when it arrived. The pizza was good but totally diminished by our experience of the dessert. DONT - I repeat DONT - order the Cannoli - it was truly awful. Should have known the pastry would be out of a packet (but did not think it would have been out of date! - it was stale). And what ever that filling was it was not a recognizable food source. The service was below average - one waitress who made a big show of being "very busy" and one with little thought or understanding...having asked to see the menu twice, (so we could make the fatal mistake of ordering the Cannoli) we ended up getting the bill (it was the universe telling me not to order the Cannoli - but sadly I did not listen). When the bill came they had overcharged us for dessert (more irony). They rectified this quite quickly with an apology from the Boss. The Boss (the younger one) badly needed a change of shirt - I know it was hot but there is little or no excuse for looking that shabby and being front of house...Go elsewhere for Italian - there is some extremely good to be had!
