“Good Service, great food & ambiance”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Hartford. Very cute intimate setting, the staff was very nice and the food excelled!! My husband must have wolfed down his blackened tuna! Would definitely go again.

“family favorite”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

Food is reliably delicious. My family has had several large parties at Vito's and the staff is wonderful to work with. Out of town guests have remarked about how good the food was.

“May Not Be Representative...”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

First-time visitors for weekday lunch in mid-April. Vito's was uncrowded, so the bartender, server, and kitchen were not stressed. If temperature had been a few degrees higher, would have chosen outdoor table with appealing view of Bushnell Park, despite intervening street traffic. Limited food sample, but what we ordered was above-average to memorable, especially appetizer bread with tomato-garlic-cheese spread (we ordered a container to take home). Can't argue with other reviewers' comments on service or coordination with kitchen; it didn't have a grooved swing even the afternoon of our undemanding visit. Quality of our meals sounds like we may have hit the line cooks on a good day.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

HIgh prices for lack luster food. Mixed drink was bitter, salad wilted, out of gorgonzola, entrees were dry and cold. Will not go again.
