Was delicious! The only one thing that wasn't right (calamari too salty) they immediately fixed it by taking it off the bill. The food was good, the wine smooth and the staff was friendly. We would recommend Vito's.

Myself and three of my cousins, including one visiting from California, when to Vito's for a family dinner. I had driven past it several times and wanted to dine there. So when looking for a spot for this dinner I decided that this was the place. We were delighted with our experience! Chef Vito greeted us at the door and... More

I was looking for a place that served pasta and that was near my hotel. I went alone and was able to order at the bar. My only minor complaint is that, for me, the bar stools are a little to short. Otherwise the service and the food was excellant. I was happy to see that they offered gluten free... More

No matter what you order, it will be great. The chef will personally come out to greet you. It's a cozy cute place.

I went here for a business dinner on a whim. The previous night we passed this restaurant while going back and forth for another dinner. We went back to try the next night and were not disappointed. When we entered we were courteously greeted and offered seating. We decided to sit at the bar. The bar tender was very friendly... More

I took my son here for a birthday dinner with the whole family. We all had different entrées, which was good to try everything. The lasagna was very tasty, sauce was good not too sweet. Just right. Ceasar salad was fresh and fantastic. Steak sandwich was cooked perfect and the sweet potato fries were awesome. My husband ordered the steak... More

Had another incredible dinner tonight at Vito's - Veal Ossobuco. This was the special on the menu, and it did not disappoint. Veal done well is something I cherish, along with lamb, and this was unreal. The veal shank was prepared to fall off the bone, and the wine sauce and mushrooms were perfect. This was exactly what I like... More

Started with asparagus soup. Tasted more out of a can than home made. Bread was fantastic as usual. Red snapper not fresh enough and bland. Spaghetti with a meatball was el dente but again a little on the bland side. Salad was fresh. On the other side the shells with peas had way too much fennel. Cannoli for dessert was... More

Now this is an Italian restaurant. The food was very good and the service was very friendly. Chef Vito would occasionally tour the restaurant to assure your meal met your expectations. His family all were working and assisting. This restaurant far surpassed Franchesco's and is a must try.
