Good traditional style Italian restaurant. The food is good. They serve the best Ceasar Salad in town. They used to make it at the table, but no more. Waiters are sometime a little impatient

The waiters were tuxedos and there are leather booths -- fancy old style Italian restaurant -- good food. I loved the shrimp pasta and the spagetti bolognese is really good -- ask for a booth!

I was very pleased with my order, the pasta was perfect and my order had plenty of shrimp. This restaurant is a great place to come and visit with friends. Excellent wine list. It is very clean and the servers are very attentive. Parking could be better.

Be warned that it's not inexpensive. Dinner for 2 inc wine & tip = $130. But it was fabulous. it's a great neighborhood place. The waiters wear jackets & ties, but customers are dressed pretty casually...a family of seven beside us speaking Italian...a young romantic couple on the other side...a table of girlfriends having an after work gathering. And if you're dining alone and like to sit at a quiet bar and watch the Dodgers, it's a great spot.

I hosted a party for a small group of friends and I have to say the food was mediocre and the service was\r
on the poor side. I ordered the fish, sand dabs and it was so over salty I could barely eat it. Also the pasta was over done.

Vito's is what you get when you cross a stereotypical snobby high-end restaurant with Americanized Italian. It's much more fun than that. Our waiter was a riot, yelling at the other waiters and clapping his hands together like you see in

Everything Ive had at Vito's has been extraordinary. My favorite is the lasagna as the sauce is the perfect color and texture, not to mention taste. Another plus is Vito's believes in quality not quantity. Unlike most Italian food

In Short
Old-school Italian restaurants are all about making patrons feel at home and Vito is no exception. Three dining areas are appointed in soothing muted mauves and tans, with fresh flowers and rustic landscape paintingsā€¦
