We found this via TripAdvisor and Open Table recommendations. Service was excellent; not too obtrusive, but very friendly. Vito (Owner/Chef) came out to ask patrons about their meals and service; nice touch. Our salads and entrees were excellent. My wife had a shell pasta with an incredible sauce. My salsiccia was outstanding, featuring homemade sausage. Our only regret is that... More

I visited Vito's on a business luncheon. It's a lovely, charming little place. During our lunch, it did get a little loud, but it was quite busy, too. It was about average priced for lunch, but the dinner menu does look a little pricey. Our server was great. She was helpful, quick, and pleasant. We received our food surprisingly quickly,... More

While researching fraud in Rockford this page was the first to come up. Just wanted to note this for Vito's Restaurant. While it is possible someone within restaurant... More

The review 'Get a Clue' is obviously from a sex starved woman who couldn't get any anywhere. Vito's has always had a very quiet atmosphere with considerate staff that goes out of its' way to make one comfortable. The food is always fresh and delicious with generous portions. It's a family run business that obviously cares about its' customers. Would... More

Server was always referring to us as Her Girls or My Friends. Honey and deary were used way too often. We are proud older women with professions and those comments are just too annoying. The server interrupted our conversations way too often. That said the food was excellent and will return.

My husband and I ate here during our travels around the Great Lakes. On our last day of a wonderful vacation, we decided to treat ourselves to a fine Italian dinner. We ordered the veal piccata and salmon. The salmon was prepared perfectly, as was the veal, very moist and fresh tasting. The dining room was decorated beautifully, our waitress... More

My husband and I decided to give it a try. Since we got in until we left we were not dissapointed. The restaurant is well appointed decorated, looks like a boutique restaurant, very charming. Our server was extremely nice, genuine and very attentive. My sangria was delicious. We ordered for appetizer Bruschetta alla Toscana, Arugula salad and for pasta Conchiglie... More

This little restaurant might be smaller in size but packs a huge pinch in flavor. The wine list is amazing, service is excellent, and the dining room is very pretty. The food has amazing flavored, great presentation and is one of the best spaghetti and meatballs that I have ever had. You will not be disappointed with the food or... More

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and invited six people who did not know one another for a pasta feed prior to the Biggest Loser Race in Rockford. We were welcomed at the door by whom we later learned was the owner. Our server was positive and professional. We were given plenty of time to chat and laugh and... More
