Soooo slow

We have been waiting one and a half hours for our food. Tables next to us have come, ordered and left. The food was good the first time we came, but I am never coming back again.

Finally went to Vitos with my dad that lives in area after years hearing about it. It's a regular spot for him, and now I know why. The atmosphere is all local and the staff was conversing with many of the folks as if they have known them for years, including my dad. The menu is typical Italian with nightly... More

I was highly impressed with the decor, the authentic Italian food and the casual singing waiters. My husband said he experienced small potions and poor service. I would have to agree that the service was less than professional, but felt like a big family as the staff chatted and laughed with the customers while we waited patiently for our check.... More

If you are an Italian by birth, by marriage, by friendship, or just plain love Italian food, the cannoli's that they have here are the best I have tasted outside of Sicily! They are not the store bought, filled sweets that most all Italian restaurants serve. They are made by hand by the sister of Vito. Vito also sings and... More

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

My Dad and I had dinner early in the evening on June 16, 2014, it was a repeat visit. We sat in the corner nearest the door. My Dad ordered a salad with his meal, I wanted split pea as I have had it there before and it is excellent. The waitress brought two salads, when I mentioned that I... 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!
