Family Sunday afternoon dinner. Table looking at the pond and fountain.Their fixed-price 3 course dinners include a nice bottle of wine! Good value, and all the regular entrees were very good.

We were in the neighborhood and stopped by. We made a last minute reservation. We got a great table overlooking the water and the food was pretty good. We enjoyed it.

We were at Vito's for a financial seminar in a group of 60 people. After the seminar we were served dinner and despite the crowd of 60 people the filet mignon was cooked to perfection, the salad was fresh and delicious and cannoli dessert yummy

Arrived during "Happy Hour" and ordered cocktails. Asked for name brand bourbon. When bill arrived discovered we were "upcharged" $10 per drink for a named brand (not expensive bourbon) on top of the regular Happy Hour price.Food was typical, not outstanding Italian.
