This place has one of the best prices for drinks during happy hours in Sukhumvit, so don't miss it.... The food menu looks good but the prices are more than average and would have been nice if they offered better prices. However, with the prices of the drinks if you are having a meal - still worth it. A must... More

I went with a party of five hungry people. We ordered 3 pizzas and loved each one. They were prepared with fresh ingredients and lots of cheesy goodness. We ordered a bottle of wine and two of us had dessert -- tiramisu. Great Italian food in Thailand.

Enjoyed a great Italian New Year's Eve party with salad , bruschetta, pizza and pasta. Was well worth it and the staff were quite helpful and attentive. Food was most enjoyable and the red wine complemented perfectly.

On a street packed with places oriented towards farang, Via Vai is a fresh slice of authentic Italy in BKK. Great place to relax inside or out any time of day, friendly staff, reasonably priced, and best of all excellent food. Grazie mille!

We both ordered a pasta dish and to be honest it wasn't the best pasta we have had especially as it is an Italian restaurant. The service was good and it is in a good location but don't think we will return.

Very good pasta in a nice environment (air con inside, or nice seating with fans outside). Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Close to BTS. Italian owner (or manager?) was very hospitable, service was good. We ate here twice.

I would say everything simple good and original! .... For me takes top marks for... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
