“Delicious Pizza, not great ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant was busy, so we got relegated to the upstairs dining room. It was a bit on the shabby side and had a slight moldy smell. If you go, be sure and sit downstairs.
Two of us shared the Greek Salad, and it was delicious. My partner had the minestrone soup and remarked that it was "just okay".
When the pizza arrived, it was fresh, hot and delicious.
They just serve beer and wine.
If you want to impress a date, this is not the spot-unless she loves southern Italian food and doesn't need ANY glitz!

“Sad pizza”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We stayed at the Orchard and wanted a quick meal one evening. We crossed the street and tried the pizza. We asked for toasted ravioli to begin with---completely burned. The pizza was limp and tasteless. Yuck.

“Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I was in search of a good pizza place one night for dinner and saw great ratings for Uncle Vito's and decided to check it out. We had to wait a long time to be seated because it was so busy, but it was definitely worth the wait. The pizza was amazing! We also got the sauteed mushrooms as an appetizer, and that was excellent.

“Ok.”

Pizza a little over cooked. We had ordered the Hawaiian. The pasta was good. My daughter loved the pesto.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Looking for a quick and yummy meal, we checked Tripadvisor for opinions on Uncle Vitos, as we had seen it in passing to our hotel. Good result and we were not disappointed. Small area, decor nothing to write home about, but delicious pizza and a good bottle of Merlot made for a great meal. Go and try it.
