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!

A small and obviously family owned restaurant. However the portions are robust. You will be waited on by the owner. Nothing fancy about the surroundings. Movie posters adorn the walls. The food is the star. Priced very reasonably.

Everything you want an Italian place to be. Great service, great people, great food. Lasagna, ravioli, meatballs, stuffed rolls, cheesecake, tiramisu...all ridiculously good. Bring your big pants. The only thing better than the food was the staff. We'll be back every time we come to Daytona.

My wife had the clam marinara; I had the vegetable stromboli. We both finished our meals and were stuffed--didn't want to stop eating. My wife says her's was orgasimic. [This is our second time in two years, and both times was 5-stars.] The owner, Jimmy, was came by the table and made us feel at home. [Now only if he... More

Outstanding...enough said! But to say a bit more, they have simply the best marinara sauce I have ever encountered, and probably ever will.

Tried Don Vito's based on the ratings and we were pleasantly surprised. The portions were very generous. The food was excellent. We arrived at 5:00 pm on a Tuesday and the place was empty. The family came out and chatted with us and made us feel at home. We will come back the next time we are in town.

Great food! Saw reviews and seeing the menu decided to try. The food was great. Had seafood pasta special and clam linguine. It was almost enough got two but to good so we ate it all. This is NY style small family owned and run. They are friendly make you feel at home. Not a fancy place. But just good!
