Stopped in after a day of shopping and glad we did. WE a cute hidden gem. Wonderful true Italian cuisine. The brushetta was wonderful and flavorful. Enjoyed the lasagna and the congheite that had an amazing sauce.

Wonderful food, fresh salad, had the steak, and it was cooked to perfection. Love this place. Vito is very hands on both in the kitchen and in the dining room greeting guests. You will not be disappointed

Vito's is a nice place for a business lunch. Classy but not stuffy. Service is good too. The home made chips are excellent!

Always enjoy dining at Vito's. Started with the sausage and kale soup which was delicious. I had one our favorites, Conchiglie alla Sarda. My husband had the Lobster Ravioli -- the white wine & butter beurre blanc was wonderful. No room for dessert tonight, but we typically get the Chocolate Beyond Reason which is yummy. Patty was our server and... More

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
