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!

i think when you check reviews, you should see if people have written more than 1 or 2, they seem more trustworthy to me… at any rate. we called for a reservation for 5. the outside of the place is a dive. (later, talking with others, they were like, 'that place is still open?') there are handwritten crooked signs on... More

Excellent food and people! It was probably the slowest service I have ever experienced though so it can be tough with young children if you don't bring them some entertainment. If you want good food in a laid back atmosphere then this is your place.

While visiting family in Daytona Beach, we decided to try Don Vito's based on the fantastic reviews on Tripadvisor. The food was AMAZING...fresh, delicious and reasonably-priced...but it's the family that runs it that is the icing on the cake - the shredded cheese on the perfect pasta! Jimmy and his wife are adorable - personable, friendly - made us feel... More

The best Sausage & Peppers over linguini I have ever had...and Jimmies entertainment wasn't bad either. Will be back, with family and friends. Thank you for a great meal.

We decided to try Don Vito's because it was ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. This family run restaurant was very welcoming. Our meals were very good. Meals were cooked to order so it took some time to serve. The restaurant is primarily family-operated and service was stretched as the restaurant reached capacity. Overall we recommend this restaurant for those visiting the... More

My husband, son and I have visited Don Vito's both times we were in Daytona Beach; the food is GREAT and plentiful! Real homestyle italian food, just like Mama used to make. Try the jumbo chicken roll - you will not go home hungry! We can't wait to visit, again.

Great family owned restaurant. Food was good and the owners are friendly and fun to talk to. Not a high class expensive restaurant. It has a nice casual atmosphere and the servings are all large and priced right.

This is the best place for the most authentic Italian food! The food is to DIE for. The prices are extremely reasonable and the service is unlike any other. The employees make sure that their customers are happy and will do whatever it takes to get there. I will come here every night I'm here on vacation!!!!
