The best Italian food and service in key biscayne!

This was our first visit to Vito's but we will be back when in town every year! The wait staff is very knowledgable and the owner sat down for a chat as we finished our meal! Food and wine were excellent! Best value in town and a can't miss place!

The food & service were horrible.The hostess were nice, but didn't speak English. The owner or manager was rude and insulted our guests. They didn't even take our drink orders when the food came we were so disappointed of the taste, and it was very expensive for their poor quality. Domino's pizza next door would have been a better choice,... More

I like eating at this small Italian restaurant on Key biscayne. The food is always good and the service professionally friendly.

Very deceiving because it is located in a strip mall that doesn't face the road. The restaurant was so quant. It only had 10 tables. LOVED IT! We were greeted first thing and seated by older men waiters that had great customer service skills! Made you feel like you were at home. I wasn't that hungry so I asked for... More

This guy has studied and gotten experience all over the world since he left Italy decades ago, but he still goes back to his mother country to see what's new. You begin with a baguette and homemade pesto dip that is addictive. The menu is simple, and reflects what the artist feels like painting that week. He does not stray... More

Vito's is not fancy looking, but his all-italian owner cooks everything himself and the food is so, so good. My favorites are the linguini with clams and the linguini with seafood. I have yet to find a better linguini w/clams anywhere! Also try the salmon carpaccio, delicious. If you expect it to be an American-styled italian, you will be dissapointed.... More

The food was just ok.. It took about 45 min for our food to get to the table.. The wine prices aren't bad.. Great ambience, small and intimate..

I would not come here with children unless they want to eat off the regular menu. They will charge full price even if it is just a plain bowl of spaghetti with a pat of butter and some parmesan cheese. Vito was insulted that I thought a bowl of pasta with a splash of butter and cheese was overpriced at... More

If you are looking for a solid Italian food experience, sans the trendiness or pretense, Vito's is the pick. Every sauce I have had there tastes hand prepared and fresh-- incredible pesto garlic sauce for your bread and outstanding tomato sauce for those classic Italian pasta dishes. Chef and owner Vito also makes outstanding fish. He makes everything by hand... More
