Vito's was a favorite of ours many years ago. After several years, we decided on the spur of the moment to go back. On a Friday night, fairly early, we showed up and were seated promptly. Going early was great because even though about ten tables were already occupied it was quiet. I ordered the linguine Mondello, an old favorite.... More

We went for our best friends birthday. The server was a little to arrogant for me, my friend asked a question and he answered her like she was stupid and was supposed to know the answer. When he first greeted us he had dirty salad plates in his hands and picked the fork up from one of the plates and... More

We enjoyed a delicious, authentic italian dinner at Vito's. Calamari, gnocchi, mushroom ravioli, lasagna, cannoli -everything was homemade. The deserts were freshly made as ordered. We devoured their crisp, sweet Cannoli and tiramusu. The owner Vito was a warm host. His wait service was prompt and friendly. Italy in Pacific Grove!

This family owned and operated Italian restaurant is a landmark in Pacific Grove. Good food, fresh seafood (the Sand Dabs were fantastic) friendly service. Also good for take out at the end of a long busy day.

Vito's is a family owned and run Italian bistro that you'd miss if you weren't looking for it. but well worth the search. The food and service are excellent!

We stayed 2 days in Monterey/Pacific Groove and were looking for a restaurant. It was late and we found Vitos on Trip Advisor. When we arrived, they were closing but Vito re-opens for us. We had the whole restaurant for us. And we immediately felt their warm welcome. The food was really excellent and quickly served. Vito told us all... More
