Truly a Mother's Day Gift
It was my first time at Vieni Vai and I plan to return as often as possible. The food was far beyond what I expected. Flavors were delicate and well paired and the service was pleasant. The servers were available to take care of any need and also gave us the privacy to enjoy each others company.

We were able to get a reservation for a big party on short notice and the restaurant was very accommodating when we were late and showed up with more people. The waitress was very attentive and patient with us as we made our wine selections and ordered our food. The food and experience was wonderful. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought out some tiramisu for the birthday boy complete with candle. I would recommend this place for any occasion.

Nice, too pricy, too noisy
We dined at Vieni Vai to help celebrate a college graduation. It was extremely noisy, to the point where conversation was impossible. Also, they put on a "special" menu for that weekend, which was not as good as their regular menu. The prices were even more special.

Gluten-Free Pasta = YUM
Everything looked and tasted delicious, especially the gluten-free pasta. I should of ordered some to go!!!
I love the fact that they have little throws to seat on and if it gets a little chilly on a night you have something to wrap yourself up in. Great idea!

A taste of old Italy!
The owner greeted us upon our arrival, which was nice. The food was excellent! We sat outside, away from the crowds and watched the ducks in the creek. We had a big group and the outside venue was very nice. Our waitress was either very busy or very forgetful, but we had a wonderful time.

This is the second time I've gone and I really enjoyed it. The food was absolutely amazing. when we first sat down, we were presented freshly baked bread and eggplant tapenade that made you just want to have that the rest of the night. My pasta with prosciutto and creamy alfredo sauce was just to die for. My mouth was watering when it came out, and I left with the greatest taste still lingering in my mouth. Overall, it was just a great lunch!

Coffe with dinner...
Waitress was friendly, but did not understand the concept of 'coffee with dinner'. My tiny cup emptied quickly, and ten to fifteen minutes passed before she noticed.
Otherwise, a great experience.

We had a group of 9, and were in town for Parent Weekend. While our table was ready for our reservation, the service and delivery of food was slow. Only 1/2 the party was served and then the other 1/2, 15 min. later. :( That was not well planned or executed.
Also, my son's pizza was made incorrectly. All of this was surprising since it was late, 8:45 reservation and restaurant looked slow at the time.
The food was good and then ambiance was nice.

Casual and Fun Home Cooked Flavor
Vieni Vai is a favorite for classic, unpretentious Italian food. Excellent wood oven pizzas, good pastas, generous servings!
