This is one of the most popular day restaurants in Livigno and this is due to both its location (just on the slopes and meters from the main gondola in Livigno) but also to the good quality food. We eat here at least one time...in each of our 5 ski vacations in Livigno and we were never disappointing. They are famous for the deer stew with polenta and porcini (the best in Livigno from my point of view) but also for other excellent traditional local dishes. Services was always very good in spite of the huge number of clients during the day. The ladies accompanying me told me that the sweets they serve are also excellent (I did not try them). Very nice as well - a lot of personnel is the same in the last 6-7 years and this is nice to see. They allow you for lunch with ski boots. The only real downsize is that they do not offer dinners as their kitchen closes at 7 pm.More

Not the best, not the worst. Won’t be going there more than once. Service was very slow, waitress never brought the drinks. Strange cooked fruit on vegetable platter? Location is good.

Via Vai restaurant is located in front of yellow cable lift- that you can use on the way to Carosello. The sunny terrace offers an excellent view to the ski area and talking about the food - it is amazing. Soup or pasta or fish...- all is yami . The best price for aperol spritz in the area:) The other entrance of the restaurant brings you directly to the main shopping street!More

Food was OK except the waitress was wearing so much perfume so the food tasted like it. The staff was friendly. The restaurant is very busy during lunch hours because it's just at the bottom of the piste.
