“no service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

awful staff, waited for more than 20 minutes for someone to take our order, it seemed they rather cleaned other tables than taking orders, even if there were no que or rush.

The same happened when we wanted to pay.
Send the staff to a course in how to be charming, kind and polite, they really need it.

“One of the best restaurants in Livigno”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We just love Via Vai and so does everyone else! Unless you go early or late you have to queue for a table. I'm sure it is the busiest restaurant but no wonder. The food is excellent, whether you choose a quick sandwich or a proper meal. The sandwiches must be one of the best value meals in Europe! The owner and her family run the restaurant. It is conveniently situated at the foot of the slopes.

“Not even served”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

We just spent 20 minutes waiting to have our order taken and no one would do it. We did ask two employees to do it and they just flat out refused to help. As we got up a big guy came out his hidding spot mumbling something but we just left to never go back. Worst service in a wonderful town.

“B'cos of food, service and sun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

It is located in very convenient place: you can just take away your ski and go for lunch or drink or morning coffee in the break. There is a nice terrace where you can enjoy excellent food and nice service. Be aware that portions here are not small. Our friends took starters and main course and.. there was no space for desserts! So if you are with friends take one starter for 2 or even 3 person and then enjoy the rest. We ate a lot of dishes and all were so good! Desserts not only are so good but also looks lovely!
If the weather is not sunny or even cold you can go into restaurant but in ski boots it is bit less comfortable. And you cannot enjoy the view.

“great for lunch or an early evening meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

situated right at the bottom of the slopes this gets very busy during the day, there's stacks of seating though. Good, well priced food. Only minor criticism was it took a while to get the attention of someone to serve us. Once we'd sorted that the food was pretty quick, good value & pretty decent.

We went back there for an early evening meal and cant complain about that either, although it is far more geared for its daytime trade on the slopes
