Family owned and operated, Don Vito's Italian Restaurant is a fantastic establishment that utilizes traditional recipes and comfortable surroundings to provide patrons with, "a meal you can't refuse". Using fifth generation recipes passed down from their grandmothers in the kitchen, the owners sons prepare authentic Italian dishes ranging from all of your favorites to some unique creations that you may not have experienced previously, including PIZZA. All of this is served up in a comfortable dining room with black booths, and a number of pieces of Italian art and movie photos on the wall. Located in the quaint Beach Street area directly on International Speedway Blvd. And across the bridge from the beach, Don Vito's is a must-visit Italian restaurant in Daytona for dine in, take out or catering!

I know for a fact from seeing how the owner responds to people's reviews that they are going to have something offensive or negative to say. However, I really believe that people need to know what to expect when eating at this establishment. My wife and I decided to try this place because of their high ranking on tripadvisor. I... More

Boy this place has gone downhill! The food was very poor quality. Have eaten here once before and decided to give the place another shot. I had the Eggplant Pharm. It had no taste. Wife had the pasta with mar. and sausage. She left most of her meal. The waitress was very hyper and running all over the place. She... More

Dearest BoJo - I suggest that you can stop my snide and abusive remarks by simply NOT coming back. Your previous review stated we were average and your suggestion we have gone downhill makes it sound like you were a regular who watched us decline over the years? Based upon your two reviews it was short trip from average to... More

We have vacationed in Daytona for over 40 years - but had never eaten at Don Vito's until this past month. This is a wonderful, small Italian restaurant in downtown Daytona. A reservation is required on most nights, as the word is out on this place. The Italian food is very good. The furnishings are nothing exceptional - nor do... More

The pizza was marginal. The pasta was bland. The sausage was ugh. The service was desultory. I felt like they want we d to get rid of me as soon as possible. I obliged since the ambiance, service, food, and drinks were forgettable.

The owners of this restaurant were awesome. We got there at 4:00 and got right in with no wait and the service was good. The food wasn't as good as we expected due to it being rated the #1 restaurant in Daytona Beach.

We were in town for the 2015 USTA Sectional Championships and brought a group there for dinner. The food was amazing and the owners were great.

As most of you reading this, we found this place on trip advisor. Well, as usual the majority rules. This place is great. Great food, great prices, and equally important, great people. You can easily forgive the few extra minutes it may take to get your food, because you feel like family here. They ask your name, ask how you... More

I absolutely love the way this wonderful family treats you when you are there. I know you have seen it in other reviews and its true. You are treated like " Family" when you are there.
