On a street packed with places oriented towards farang, Via Vai is a fresh slice of authentic Italy in BKK. Great place to relax inside or out any time of day, friendly staff, reasonably priced, and best of all excellent food. Grazie mille!

We both ordered a pasta dish and to be honest it wasn't the best pasta we have had especially as it is an Italian restaurant. The service was good and it is in a good location but don't think we will return.

Very good pasta in a nice environment (air con inside, or nice seating with fans outside). Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Close to BTS. Italian owner (or manager?) was very hospitable, service was good. We ate here twice.

I would say everything simple good and original! .... For me takes top marks for... More

First date. Cheap and easy place to go meet. I'm taking a cute girl there tonight for our first date. Definitely a cool part of the city to be in as well

Yes i come here for years. Unfortunately prices go up...o.k. ....but quality goes down rapidely. Mozzarella used for pizza is really 3rd quality and pizza only for hunger, but certainly not for pleasure. i will look for another italian restaurant in Sukhumvit....Basilico soi 33. Pierre

I have walked past the restaurant at least 15 times over the years and decided to finally give it a try. Atmosphere and service was very good. Food was just ok. I really wanted it to be good so I could come back and enjoy the air-conditioning. I may give it another shot but I prefer the location (Monsoon) directly... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighborhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
