Vito's has just moved a couple store fronts down and now has an outdoor patio. This was my third visit and my first review. Good food, attentive friendly service. This is not high end Italian Cuisine, if you're looking for cut crystal decanters please keep driving. If you want great value and some fresh baked knot rolls (and yes they... More

After reading all the reviews, we expected more than we received. We enjoyed having the house salad in a chilled bowl, but the garlic bread knots seemed a bit tasteless and overly greasy (buttered). My family ordered the chicken cacciatore, chicken piccata, chicken parmesan, and I ordered the lasagna. The portions seemed appropriate and the taste was okay-just average. When... More

Sauce had an unnaturally sugary taste. Chicken Marsala was gray And pasty if it had the Marsala wine it was cheap at best. Food was gloppy. Pasta was ok. Why service salad dressing on side in plastic ? Gross. Service was great. Wine and beer quite nice & Good value. Great wine glasses.

We visited this restaurant yesterday. My husband was very pleased with the whole wheat pasta with shrimps. I took the canellonis. The stuffing made of meat, spinach and spices topped with a great tomato sauce was delicious. Our meals came with a fresh house salad and some garlic knots, which is a variation of small home made bread loafs. The... More

Very good service and wonderful food. Not too pricy either! And there was perfect temperature inside. Great family experience.

The salad was cold and fresh. The veal dishes were real veal, generous portions and service was at the proper pace. No reservations were required and it was busy for a Thursday night. Every other patron seemed pleased with their choices. We will come back.

Vito's sauces are excellent. The marinara was simple and flavorful. The meat sauce was rich and hearty. My eggplant parmesan was marvelous. We also had a very different lasagna which was flavorful and just right.

Went for the gluten free pizza and was not disappointed - it was delicious. The crust was thin, like a cracker crust around the edges; pepperoni was good, I'll skip the sausage next time. Service was very good - friendly, welcoming and efficient. The atmosphere was very casual, there were obviously a lot a locals/regulars here; that is a real... More

8:45 pm on a Saturday night, we needed dinner after having travelled all day. The house salads were small but fresh. My husband had the risotto special with shrimp and tomato (Mediterraneo) and I had the veal parmigiana (that comes with a slice of eggplant on top). The risotto was a little runny but tasted good. My serving of veal... More
