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 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!!!!

Lots of people talked this place up. After growing up in an Italian family I was really turned off by what they're passing as Italian food. To make matters worse when I used the bathroom I saw a bug so large I could have put it on a leash as a new pet. Just don't go here for dinner.

I usually don't choose to eat Italian food out at a restaurant because I always end up saying that I can do it better. My homemade pizza, pasta, and sauces are better. Not so at Don Vito's. They have me beat. Was talked into going italian instead of seafood by my son. Our family of four had pizza, baked ziti,... More

5 stars is not enough for Don Vito's...if I could give them six stars I would. GREAT food and atmosphere. This is a family owned restaurant and as soon as we walked in they treated us as if we were part of their family. I can say, without exaggeration, that this was some of the best food I've ever had.... More
