Great food

Pizza's are great with plenty of toppings. Nice selection of tasty sandwiches that are large enough for two meals or two people. Salads are full of fresh ingredients and the Italian dressing is amazing.

Their garden salads are wonderful with house dressing. Pizzas good too but salad is a must have. Not many places to sit I usually take it home. There are other papa Vito's in the area with ample seating but waterloo is convenient for me

Food is exceptionally good; however, be prepared to wait hours (yes I said hours) for your delivery. Very small restaurant with only a few tables so you really can't eat there. We like their food but rarely order because no one wants to wait 2-3 hours for a pizza.

We have a true gem in Papa Vito's. Everything on the menu is excellent. We love to watch them load the cheese on. The garden salad is huge and roast beef sandwich is scrumptious.

The pizza is the very best StL style pizza you can find, though I am NOT a fan of provel processed cheese. (Eat it while its hot or the provel become gunky and sticks to your teeth.) The kitchen backs up quickly and the wait time often exceeds an hour. Plan ahead and call ahead.

Excellent pizza, sandwiches and salad! Definately worth every penny and the time it takes for deliver! I would suggest pick up vs delivery if you are on a shorter timeframe. Not alot of seating at the Waterloo location.

Would never eat here. Was told to leave after asking I guess the owner why it's taking over 2 hours to get food and no offer of free food for wait. Then owner told me to get the F out on front of my child. All I said was I wouldn't come back to eat again. Great business buddy.

Hands down one of the best places to eat in Waterloo! The inside is really small so we never eat in there.. If you order delivery expect to wait over a hour but I promise you it's worth the wait!! The meatball sandwich might be the best thing you ever eat! They also have great pizza and salads! Love this... More
