Hi Michael! Dinner was absolutely amazing.  I can't thank you enough for your recommendations on the menu and for putting together such an incredible experience for my friends and family!  Your restaurant was posted on Facebook by everyone who attended.  Quite a few people told me that it was one of the best meals they ever had.  I would have to agree with them.  The timing between courses was spot on.  Never lagging and never rushed, just perfect. You have a beautiful restaurant and a...

"Amazing experience.  My wife and I dined in on the Saturday immediately after Valentines Day, so we were expecting a long wait, but we were seated extremely quickly (without reservations).  My first impression of the restaurant is that it was very nice/clean/new.  We started off with drinks, my wife ordered a glass of Milbrandt Pinot Gris, and I ordered a Daisy Cutter Pale Ale (Half Acre Beer Company, Chicago).  The wine list is organized from sweet (top) to dry (bottom), so my wife was...

"We were there last night. Myself, my wife Karen, and her son Payton. We've been to fire & wine several times before and we're at this restaurant once this past summer. I have to say the food was outstanding the service was incredible. They made you feel very welcome. Michael and Anthony came up to our table sat down and talked to us. Made you feel right at home. I had the vodka which was incredible. That's my favorite of all time. Karen had the scallops which was the best she's ever had....

"Wow! We now have another favorite restaurant in Naperville. Knowing there's a new restaurant after a BBQ house or something on Rt 59, we hadn't tried it yet.  Today we gave it a try and, wow, we loved it so much! We were not very hungry but had: Beets Salad Spicy Peppered Shrimp + Polenta Fritto Misto and Charred Broccolini and spaghetti as side. We even went for affogato! They were all delicious.  Even the side broccolini was so tasty and awesome.  Also the variety of their drinks astonished...

Best dining experience I've had in years. The food was cooked exactly as it was ordered. The service was impeccable and we were treated like we were the only ones in the restaurant (we weren't). Definitely would recommend this venue.

"VAI's has been open for 6 months and is already #1 on our list of restaurants in the Western suburbs. Ample parking, great beer and wine selections, efficient and friendly staff and terrific food. My favorites are the meatball sliders, salmon and pizza."

"Everything went super well. I received a lot of very positive feedback on how wonderful the food was and the service was amazing. A definite hit and I’ll be reaching out in the future when I need a venue for some of our smaller gatherings and senior leadership dinners. Thank you for being a very gracious and accommodating host! Happy Holidays!"

I heard from many in our group that this was our best friendsmas, mostly b/c of the food but also the service! I am so happy that you guys are close to us now. A couple of the couples had not yet been there & will be back! You & Anthony have always put your heart into your work & I don’t know another place where you see the owners every time you go in. We love Vai's and you guys.

"We dined here shortly after they opened and we really liked it. We ordered a burrata appetizer with the wood fired grapes that my husband was hesitant to order, but we both ended up loving it along with one of the homemade pasta dishes. Everyone from the hostess to the waitress to the manager were extremely welcoming and friendly which in my opinion is refreshing. I thought the service was excellent by the waitress. The manager came over to our table and introduced himself and asked if we...

"Great food and very reasonably priced. Most of menu is situated around small plates to share and that worked well for us. Split two small plates, a small salad and a pasta and we were very full after meal. Wine list was good and fair. Patio was nice, shielded from wind and had a roof covering it." 9/2018

"Service was good on a busy Friday night. Food was fresh. Had the calamari and it was one of the best I ever had. Not sure about another review about it being too salty. It was seasoned perfectly. They were on their game tonight. Kale and quinoa salad was great and the prosciutto and wild mushroom pizza was amazing. I hope they do not change a thing. Melissa was our server in the bar and she was terrific. Handled a very busy crowd with a great attitude and great service." 8/2018

"Had a great birthday dinner there last night. Truly a neighborhood gem. The homemade meatballs and tomato sauce were the best I’ve ever had. Grilled shrimp and polenta were tasty and I loved the thin crust Italian pizza. Staff was attentive. Will definitely go back." 10/2018

Leah Woodcock Recommends VAI’s on Google

"Went last night and the service was great! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff who cared for all 9 of us like we were family. Kept us well fed and watered. Offered many times to refill drinks and kept our dinner moving but relaxed as we stayed for 2 and a half hours just chatting with friends. The food was fresh and in large quantities. We will definitely be back!" 8/2018
