From the wine to the meatball appetizer, we knew we were in for a treat! Great main course with short ribs. Looking forward to our return!

I had visited Vito's along with my colleagues for a dinner. Even with a large team we could get place together. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was above average - not particularly special.

My wife and I stopped by for an early dinner. We shared an antipasto which was wonderful right down to the roasted garlic. We also shard a 12" margharite pizza that was equally as good. Our server (Arkeya was one of the most friendly, efficient and informative waiters we have encountered in a long time. Kudos to him. Keep up... More

I recently meet up with some former co-workers here for lunch. We were seated in the back of the restaurant overlooking the pond. It just snowed the day before and it was really pretty there with the snowcapped trees and the ducks swimming in the pond. Our server was excellent and very patient with us. We haven’t seen each other... More

I would have given Vito's 4 except for the prices. The food was very good and we sat outside overlooking the pond. The service was good. The prices were just too high for what you got. We went with a discount coupon, but probably won't return without one.

My daughter and her boyfriend are vegetarian so I have to agree with HW-in-Bermuda's recent review that options are limited. BUT there were a half dozen vegetarian friendly options on the menu. Now the amazing thing is that one of them was on the Price-Fix menu. Normally restaurants do not like to break items out from that and I understand.... More
