"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!

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...

Local Guide Brandi Sandri Recommends VAI’s

"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

"Absolutely amazing meal with outstanding service! If you have been to Fire + Wine in Glen Ellyn, Vai’s has the same warm hospitality with a slightly different menu that is every bit as good. Highly recommended!" 8/2018
