I have been to Vito's a number of times over the past ten years and after the first visit it was never by choice. I would not recommend Vito's to friends or family.

Great as usual. Same as Vito's by the park in downtown Hartford. Nice and cozy. Good service. A bit pricey but worth it

Ok location. If you don't work in the area might be out of your way. A little cramped but ok. Tyhe food is great and expensive. $32 for salmon. Nope, that is steak territory.More

It s nice to have a restaurant out of the city that offers Vito's fine food and yet not have to make the trek in Hartford or West Hartford. Nice Atmosphere and pretty scenarery no matter the season.

Had dinner here with my German colleagues and boss. The service was good. Our steaks were overdone. Oysters and meatball appetizers very good. Espresso was more like cafe americano in a demitasse cup.More
