Vito's is a great place to dine. The food is delicious. The creme brulee is fabulous. The ambiance is nice and the noise level so low so it's a great place for a meal with conversation. It's conveniently located near the major hotels. Vito's is one of my favorite places to eat in Rockford.

My husband and I stopped in on a Tuesday evening at about 7 p.m. The restaurant was not very busy, but was clean and inviting. We were greeted promptly and seated. Our server, Patty, was wonderful--polite, professional, and attentive. They had a special side salad that evening (arugula with blue cheese, apple, and honey balsamic dressing), which both of us...

Found this gem while searching for a local restaurant near my hotel. I had no problem getting a table, as I was dining alone. It is bigger than it looks from the outside. They have a beautiful bar with a great wine and spirit selection. I found the service to be top notch, even though my waitress had a large... More

I was expecting quite a lot better than the stodge I was served up here a few weeks ago. I went in based upon the good reviews and maybe my choice of plate was not the chef's specialty. If that's the case , then don't do as I did and order the salmon with whole wheat pasta. It looked (and... More

Had family visiting from out of town so I referenced trip advisor to look for a nice restaurant I had not been to, found rave reviews for Vito's and had to give it a try. Vito's most certainly did not disappoint! We had everything from seafood, pasta, to steak, everything was delicious and substantial portions so go hungry! This will... More

Traveling through on business and looking for something nicer than fast food for lunch. Found this place on Trip Advisor and was glad I gave it a try. The decor is nothing too special (very comfortable) and the service was great! They make you feel like family with easygoing and very pleasant service. The food was very good, I had... More

Stopped in at Vito's for dinner with my mom. What a surprising experience we had dinning there that night. The place is small and quaint, but the food is huge with appeal and flavor. Very authentic Italian cuisine. There were no leftovers that night. The atmosphere is very comfortable and welcoming, not overbearing and overdone like some of the other... More

My sister, brother in law and I had a top notch dinner. The food and service was by far, the best I have ever had. Adam makes a tasty Southern comfort old fashion sweet, Chef Vito takes the time to stop by your table, which is rarely done anymore. All the staff made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed...
