Description: 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. All of this is served up in a comfortable dining room with black booths, red tablecloths 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!

We had the garlic knots (ahhhmazing!) and the meat pizza and white pizza- all authentic and delicious! The staff was friendly and welcoming. Loved it!

I'm a little scared to post something after reading thru the reviews. The owner doesn't seem to like a rating under 4 stars and really attacks people on here if they don't like her food. It was the mean responses that almost kept us from coming but since I consider myself somewhat of a foodie I had to come to... More

When we make our annual trip to Daytona Beach to watch my daughter's team compete in NCA Cheerleading Nationals there is one restaurant that we simply don't miss and this year was no exception. When you walk in the door at Don Vito's you are treated like family and if you want to make your dining experience one of the... More

We were in Daytona Beach for business in March 2014, and tried a couple of times to find a decent, off the radar place to eat, with no luck. Then, on a recommendation from a co-worker that had been in the past, we found Don Vito's Italian Restaurant. WOW! As soon as we walked in I knew we had a... More

My wife and I were there tonight. We were greeted by one of the owners as soon as we entered. You are made to feel like family. We ordered the Italian sampler and the bruschetta was the absolute best I have ever had, everything else was delicious as well. My wife ordered the chicken parm, and asked for a salad,... More

Yes - the owners & their sons are lovely people who work very hard to run this little restaurant. But they need some pointers. Like - don't leave people waiting at the door hoping someone will give them guidance. There is no sign that says "Please seat yourself." Also - what's with the big round tables in the middle of...

The food was delicious! There were three in our party with two of us having the chicken parmesan and the other having a Stromboli. The red sauce was AMAZING! Best chicken parm I've ever had as well as Stromboli (I snuck a bite of it also)! Definitely a have to stop on our future visits to Daytona! Don't miss out... More

Read the mixed reviews of Don Vito's but decided to go and boy am I glad we did. What a wonderful experience we had. It felt like old friends welcoming us into their home. We had a meat pizza and shrimp scampi pasta. Both were amazing. Do yourself a favor and have some real Italian food at the beach in... More
