We went to this restaurant for brunch a couple of months ago and had a terrible experience. I wrote directly to the restaurant and I was contacted by the owner who offered to show us it was not a typical dining experience at their restaurant. We went for dinner a couple of weeks ago. We were delighted with the food... More

During Christmas week I returned to Vito's for lunch with two friends. (My 1st dining experience was dinner with friends in Nov.) Again, the food quality and service were excellent. The portions were generous and nicely complemented by the bread basket. Since the three of us get together once or twice a year, when we finished our meal, I especially... More

I hosted four people (group of five) and apprised our waitress the gathering was social in nature and we desired to order items easily shared. We were offered a wonderful group of hot and cold items that were not offered as a specific selection. Our "small" plates arrived simultaneously and each was sufficiently sized for all to share. My guests... More

My husband and I attended a recent beer and bacon dinner at Vito's by the Water. It was our first time at the restaurant, so I can't speak to the normal dining experience, but this special dinner was great. The food was delicious, the chef/owner was friendly and engaging, and the beer (provided by Back East) was served generously. There... More

Owner / Chef loves food and people ... combo makes for a great experience. Large restaurant with smaller dining areas keeps it intimate. Local suppliers for many things keeps it fresh and keeps it a community thing. Special event dinners, happy hour specials on the patio, Sunday brunch ... and the consistently good favorites on the menu. Pretty much same... More

About 20 of us arrived for a business meal after work on a Wednesday evening. Food was great, service was great and I think we all had a great time.

Traveling and the hotel we are staying suggested Vito's on the Water, I must tell you our entire experience was absolutely excellent. Lisa our waitress was fantastic, Lisa was actually filling in from another location. Lisa had a suggestion for everything. The food and the pricing was perfect. Thank you Vito's on the Water.

Delicious dinner with outstanding service by Kelly made our business dinner a delight. A nice selection of tasty traditional dishes and grilled specialties meant there was something good for everyone. We will return!

What a wonderful lunch on a sunny afternoon. The service was excellent, food great, and the view peaceful. There were two large parties going on, but the staff was still exceptional. This restaurant has become our favorite place to dine.
