Opening July 2018.  916 S. Rt. 59 in Naperville, IL

Italian-inspired food takes a contemporary turn as VAI’s couples old-world concepts with new world charisma. Operating partners of the popular wood-fired restaurant “fire + wine” in Glen Ellyn have teamed up to bring you VAI’s Italian Inspired Kitchen + Bar.

VAI’s vibe is a mix of lighthearted class, warmth, and family. Let the aromas of fresh wood-fired dough cooking in the hearth take you to the sweet smell of bright citrus and herbs being muddled at the bar for a craft cocktail. VAI’s is a veritable home away from home.

“Sharing life over plates”… VAI’s creators impress the fun and connectedness that ordering plates-to-share brings. The menu is engineered for a group to gather around and enjoy together. Rustic small plates, wood-fired traditional Neapolitan Pizzas, fresh pasta, truly enjoyable salads, along with creative entrees are just a few options you’ll find on the menu. (VAI’s has options for allergies & nutritional preferences.)

Moving to spirits; the wine menu offers a robust choice of whites, reds and blends from across the world while the craft beer + cocktail lists each house traditional picks and off-the-beaten-path options.

Partners Michael, Anthony, Nick Vai and Sandy Georganas along with Executive Chef, Scott Raiman have a combined 100+ years in the restaurant industry. They continue to bring wonderful food and beverage to you with casual hospitality and everyday sincerity.
