If the dining room at VAI’s Italian Inspired Restaurant Kitchen + Bar feels like home, that’s by design. The warm fireplace and the aroma of fresh food prepared in the kitchen welcome you in.
“Sharing life over plates” is Vai’s motto. Michael Vai has spent most of his life in the restaurant business. Now, with his two sons Nick and Anthony, and family friend Sandy Georganas, they are sharing their life by offering the finest foods to you and your family.
It’s a simple philosophy, and it takes all the pressure off you.
“People are just looking over the menu, going ,’What do I get? What should we do?’ Michael Vai, Co-Owner of VAI’s Italian Inspired Restaurant Kitchen + Bar says. “You know what you should do? You should just enjoy being together and let us feed you and share some life over your plate. That’s what we wanna do. “
When you think Italian cuisine, you usually think heaping portions. But at Vai’s, they’ve gone the other way. Oh, you’ll still leave stuffed! But only after sharing small plates together over lots of courses.
For a starter, try their neopolitan pizzas, baked to blistered perfection in a wood-fired oven. Plus, all their pizzas and pastas are available gluten free.
The Mushroom Carpaccio is worth a visit all by itself. Shaved thin, with a delicate dressing of goat cheese and balsamic.
But if you don’t want to share one of the best dinners of your life, Vai’s has you covered too, with entrees of wood-grilled filet… paccheri bolognese… or roast wild salmon.
Vai’s also offers a full bar with amazing wines, cocktails, and craft beers to enhance your meal.
With great hospitality and wonderful food, all that’s left is for you to provide the company. Vai’s will take care of the rest.
