Visiting my son who's lived in Daytona a few years, decided on Don's because of reviews I read. Don't come if you want pristine clean or impeccable decor.... come for the experience. The owners Barbara and Jimmy are your wait staff, your entertainment, and your friends. Their children do the cooking and this place just smacks of love. You feel... More

We stopped by based upon Trip Advisor reviews. At first glance, it's not glamorous at all. Typical "hole in the wall". But the owners go above and beyond to make you feel at home and appreciated. It's not about the decor, which is ganster movie posters. It's about the food. Which is warm, authentic, and made from scratch. I'll come... More

Everything about this place screams New York authentic from the boisterously gracious staff and the tacky decor, to the icredible homemade food. I loved everything about it. It was a little on the pricey... More

We were greeted and asked to sit at a booth. Our server was lovely and personable. I ordered the ravioli with ricotta and spinach, which were excellent. My husband ordered baked penne, and the plate was piping hot and huge! He loved it. The cheesiest and most importantly huge portion was well worth our visit. We also had their pizza.... More

The moment you walk in the door you feel completely welcome! The servers are the owners and they are super nice and funny. The food is outstanding and comepletely homemade. The garlic knots are to die for and so is their marinara sauce! Definitely the best Italian food in Daytona!

Family owned and operated, Don Vito's Italian Restaurant is a fantastic establishment that utilizes traditional recipes and comfortable surroundings to provide patrons with, "A Meal YOU Can't Refuse". Using fifth generation recipes passed down from their grandmothers in the kitchen, the owners sons prepare authentic Italian dishes ranging from all of your favorites to some unique creations that you may not have experienced previously, including PIZZA. All of this is served up in a comfortable dining room with black booths, and a number of pieces of Italian art and movie photos on the wall. Located in the quaint Beach Street area directly on International Speedway Blvd. And across the bridge from the beach, Don Vito's is a must-visit Italian restaurant in Daytona for dine in, take out or catering!
