The food is good and tasty, the prices are appropriate and the location is convenient from work. That is why this has become the go to place for the locals and those who work around a place for repeat business.

Too much for one person in one sitting, the pizza has plenty of meat, with big chunks of sausage, pepperoni and bacon along with cheese and sauce in a deep dish style crust. Food was good, portions large, prices range from $17-34 but seemed reasonable for the quality and ambiance.

Interesting enough, southern Italian italo-american food I actually liked! We were treated for a business dinner, buffet style. I was freaking out internally, not wanting to be a food snob (that I am), actually an ungrateful food snob... The place is overwhelmingly big, and outdated but it is a local staple for business and families. So go with it. The... More

We love Vito's -- the food is always terrific, and the service friendly and efficient. A relaxing experience -- low-key. Just a nice evening!

We were a party of nine, they had 2 very large parties that night so we were sat in the bar. The food was very good, Matt our server was fantastic, his knowledge of the menu was great, all of his suggestions were enjoyed by all. The fresh mozzarella wrapped in priusutto was bar far my favorite. Nice wine selection,... More

Came here for lunch with coworkers. The view was nice sitting at the window. Not sure why they forced unsolicited meatballs on us but the chicken salad was just fine. Came here as it was convenient to the office we were visiting.

We took advantage of a pre-fix dinner special which included appetizers, entrees and desert. As a bonus, a bottle of wine is complimentary. Outside seating is offered in a lovely park like setting by a pond. The food was well prepared and there were several options offered for the special. Service was excellent. Hurry before the good weather passes.
