Went for lunch and were seated outside. There was a nice view from their patio. Very good service and reasonable prices. Our waitress recommended Vito's Famous Meatballs as appetizer and this was absolutely fantastic. Great taste and really delicious. Can really recommend (see picture). Then ordered the Cobb salat and despite the fact that I was almost full after the... More

Vito's by the Water is my favorite restaurant for many reasons: EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE, great menu, exciting foodie events, exceptional food, a very fresh raw bar but mostly (drum roll) one of the few (if not only) places in the area where there is a fabulous scotch selection. My fav: Balvenie's Caribbean Cask 14 year old single malt. Can I just... More

Nice casual setting with attentive service and good food. It can get noisey if there are large parties but mostly the noise level is fine. Nice view of wooded area with lake.

In town visiting and family took my wife and me back - again - to this restaurant, I think because its proximity to Windsor makes it easy to get to. It's located in center of industrial/insurance park, so perhaps it is hopping at lunch. On a recent FR night is was quiet, and cold. They have some white lights on... More

We were a large group and had a private room. The service was good and attentive. Ordered the Spinach Pizza, it was made well. One comment is that it could do better with less spinach and more garlic. We were there during the winter storm, and the room was very cold. Most of us had to keep coats on... when... More

Was a little disappointed today. Went in for lunch. Friend ordered a cheeseburger and had to send it back three times because it was not cooked enough. The waiter never asked how we wanted it cooked to begin with. When we sent it back the 1st time he didn't ask again. Might have been a good idea to ask how... More
