VIA VAI is an Italian restaurant, based on a concept of quality and excellent food, in a space where people come together to enjoy the feel of real Italy in Astoria. VIA VAI’s goal is to offer our customers a fresh, contemporary take on traditional Italian food, in a friendly, comfortable environment.
Chef and Owner Antonio Morichini's dishes and the ambiance at VIA VAI provide an authentic and honest dining experience. The food reflects Chef’s Antonio’s culinary experiences in the Peidmont region of northern Italy, the town of Chiavari in the Liguria region of north Italy, and in Michelin-starred restaurants in his hometown of Rome.
Whether it’s the food of yesterday Italian traditional seeped in history and culture, or the food of today and the future – firmly rooted in tradition but with an eye towards innovation – our food is genuine, from the heart and for every palate.
