Diner Reviews
  • "This is a fun place to eat. An open air feel of Europe and wonderful service. The food was great if you went with the traditional Italian theme. Do not go with the salad as a main meal. It was plain and bland. For example, I ordered a Shrimp Caesar and the shrimp was cold, with tails on and not seasoned. It would have been better if the shrimp was seasoned and warm or grilled. It was off putting. But, the other Italian pasta dishes were really good. The best was the appetizer of cheese, olives, walnuts and figs - totally perfect with my Syrah! I recommend this place."

  • "My family and I had dinner at Vieni Vai after visiting CalPoly. What an amazing meal! If you make a reservation, make sure to specify inside or outside as it is a completely different atmosphere. There was some confusion about the reservations; however, the staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating while we were waiting. My family and I have spent a lot of time in Italy sampling real Italian food, and we all agree that this is the most Italian restaurant we have been to in the States. The pizza was the most notable. It was identical to real northern Italian pizza. Fresh baked in an imported wood burning oven, they are filled with intense flavors. Vieni Vai also has an excellent wine list for any wine aficionados out there!"

  • "We were from out of town. We had a great meal. I wouldn't go here for the wine list, though. They don't seem to have much knowledge about wines."

  • "We made reservations for Valentines night not realizing that the restaurant would only be serving a preset menu at $45 per person. We decided to go ahead with the dinner knowing that it was Valentine's Day but expecting something special for that price. We have eaten at this restaurant in the past and always enjoyed our meals spending usually no more then $65 for the two of us for the entire meal. The portions served for their prefix Valentines menu were less than half the size of their normal portions. Overall a very disappointing dinner."

  • "Had the chicken Caesar salad - grilled marinated chicken was delicious and loved the Caesar dressing... only negative would be that the menu said shaved parmesan cheese and it was shredded... just a preference, but the shaved cheese was partly why I ordered it."

  • "Vieni Vai had everying I was looking for in a restaurant for a special occasion with a large group (8). They had a children's menu and pizza for the younger ones (or not so young) and a great menu and wine list for the adults. The noise level of the restaurant was important to me as I have a noisy family. It was pleasantly "energetic" and I didn't feel like we bothered anyone. A great time was had by all, young and old!"

  • "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."
