We were staying quite close by and this place became like 'home from home'. The food was excellent. The staff were polite and capable and smiled a lot. Overall we always felt extremely welcome. The cherry on the cake were the owners. Italians, extremely friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We also really rated the hygiene. Not often able to... More

Walked past this place and it looked deserted so wasn't sure if the food would be nice but the pizza we had was pretty good. They have wood fired pizzas which is what we were looking for.

My wife and I dine at Via Vai on the regular every time we visit Samui, their gnocchi is amazing and pizzas cooked in the wood fire oven are second to none, I highly recommend to dine here if you are looking for tasty, authentic flavors.

I doubt that this is the best italian on Chaweng, but the location is good and the food is eatable. Pizza was a bit undercooked, and the tomato sauce could have been more tasteful. That said, the food was decent and the service was fine. The house wine on carafel was good compared what you get most places in Thailand.

The wood fired pizza oven at the front of the restaurant drew our attention whilst walking past in the afternoon. We went back later that night after a few drinks and weren't disappointed with the food. My son ordered a Long Island tea and whilst you can get cheaper along the strip he said that this was choc full of... More
