This location used to be full of other restaurants. So we were glad to see it still here. The food is very good and reasonably priced

We were coming back from a visit to Hawaii and had a one night stopover in San Jose near the airport. We looked at Trip Advisor for a nearby restaurant and found Vito's close by. (FYI, this was just a the start of the COVID...19 and we could see the the downturn in traffic at the Airport, Hotel and traffic.) We walked over to Vito's and quickly noticed it was more than just a pizza parlor and we felt under dressed, but we decided to go ahead and go in. We asked for a table of 5, and even though we did not have a reservation, they quickly put two tables together for us. Right off the start our waiter welcomed us a made us felt welcome to Vito's . We got comfortable, looked over the menu and started to enjoy ourselves. As they brought out some bread, we ordered a bottle of wine. The menu was not overwhelming with to many choices which was great. We each ordered something a little different. The dishes were excellent and the prices were actually fairly reasonable. We had to have dessert, so we asked our waiter for some suggestion and his picks we spot on. I can not say enough about our waiter and wish I could remember his name. We got out bill and left a sizable tip and went outside to wait on a lyft ride ( just tired and did not want to walk back to the hotel). As we waited, our waiter came out to let us know we totaled up our bill incorrectly as our tip and total did not add up, and if Vito's went with what we said was the total, then we would have way over tipped. Again what honesty. Not sure if we will ever make it back to San Jose, but if we do, I can insure we will be coming back to Vito'sMore

Really enjoyed the service, atmosphere and food at this small but intimate Italian restaurant. Went there on Friday evening and the place was busy but yet still had that quiet feel.

Stopped here because it was across the street from our hotel, what a pleasant surprise! Great local Italian restaurant. Enjoyed soups and main dishes. Too full for desert 😔. Jose our server was excellent and very helpful with food choices. I would definitely come back.

The staff at the hotel recommended this to us. I made a reservation for three on open table. We had to walk about a block to get there. Nice safe neighborhood and a nice evening for a walk. We were early for our reservation but...they seated us right away. The place was very cozy with lovely lighting and a nice layout. I ordered the most expensive chianti by the glass and my colleagues ordered beer. The chianti had been open and had that vinegar after taste and was disappointing. It took 20 minutes after the drinks arrived for our wait staff to take an order. I ordered calamari for the table and a shrimp cocktail for my entree. The calamari had a LOT of garlic so if that is not your thing.... the shrimp were dusted with paprika and other spices which covered up the fact that they were not fully deveined and therefore...gritty. The bread was wonderful with a better than average olive oil for dipping. TA ratings were 4 star. I would not really recommend this place...just a bit more attention to detail could change that.More

Great food and great service. Menu has a great selection. I had gnocchi and chose pesto sauce which was very good. Interior was very nice.

Enjoyed a nice meal with friends before our flight back home to Texas. The Astros were playing and everyone was accepting of our enthusiasm! The food and wine were also good!

Our experience at Vito's was, overall, a good one. We arrived about an hour prior to closing time and the restaurant was still fairly busy, and our server was busier than she reasonably could handle. The atmosphere of the restaurant was pleasant, albeit on the...loud side. Our meals were delicious. I ordered the farfalle with peas, prosciutto, and garlic cream sauce, and my partner got the veal marsala.More

It's a nice place, would be a special place for teens. Food is good and lots of things teens eat. Make sure you make a reservation, it's not very large. On the other hand it also has nice outdoor seating.
