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!

Great food and service

Great food, hot and fresh and home cooked. Plus great service from this family owned and operated establishment. We spent three weeks in Italy this summer and had our best Italian meal tonight in Dayona Beach!

i went there for dinner.. looking for a vegan lasagna, the chef was too kind and customized one for me. Appreciate the service, food is tasty but very expensive. Good for people looking to try out Italian cusine but prices are too high.

Look, if you eat at this place you will walk out questioning why you ever ate Italian anywhere else. I went with an Italian friend of mine from philly and he was absolutely blown away. Not only is the food great, but the people make it an experience. It's like having an Italian aunt and uncle that cook you homemade... More

We greeted by the owner pointing out a booth for us to sit. I explained the booth was fine ut just so they knew we had a reservation. He proceeded to point again at the booth- no words used. There were maybe 4-5 groups total in the restaurant. After 15 minutes of waiting someone finally came to take orders. By... More

Dearest Lady Maryland - First of all our condolences with regard to your Grandmother. You state the environment was weird- How? Why? It seems you were disappointed as soon as you walked in because we pointed to a booth with no words, but with a big smile?,[ We ALWAYS say hello!!]. Probably OK with most but not for you? A... More

Let me preface by saying I usually love small, family owned restaurants as the food is usually delicious, but this is a sad example. The linguini and clams was disgusting....no garlic but onion! and not too many clams. The lasagna was meatless (not mentioned on menu) and the wine glass was barely filled. They like to talk as if you... More

Dearest of all Leslie's - Thanks for your heartfelt review. Let me preface my reply by saying we usually love all our customers but right now I'm not feeling it for you. I don't mean to be as insulting as your review but, could it be your confused, over medicated or perhaps you ate somewhere else? Our Lasagna DOES have... More

My husband and I came early and were welcomed warmly by Jimmy. He set the mood for a wonderful meal. We both ordered lasagna which came in giant portions and was rich and tasty. It had a cozy atmosphere and the well-behaved grandchildren were playing in the back; very family oriented business with all participating. Jimmy checked on us several... More

We went to have dinner, and we felt like a member of the family! The food was GREAT, and we felt relaxed and at home! I had lobster ravioli, and my husband had sausage and peppers. Wonderful, homestyle Italian food, and good, relaxing banter with the folks there.
