My daughter and I stopped in here looking for a good meal. I never mind spending money on a good meal but for $60 our meals were bland with little flavor to it.

I ate at Vito's 18 months ago and had a great experience so I decided to try again. I was not disappointed and enjoyed the meal and service. Vito's is a proper restaurant which has wide variety menu from raw bar to pizza options but not an overwhelming number of options. The prices are quite reasonable including a nice collection...

My partner and I came here for Valentine's Day after having forgotten to make reservations, so we were happy to actually get a table here at the last minute. The food was quite good and the portions standard. They have this really good tomato sauce for the complimentary bread, I wish we could have taken some home. The wait staff... More

Wonderful birthday party for my sister-in-law's 90th birthday. Planning, food & service was top notch. Kudos to Ally for making planning easy, including switching the day at the last minute due to snowstorm, and to Lisa, our helper with getting the party running smoothly. They even brought out "to-go" containers for people to bring leftovers home. Just a great experience... More

We love going to vito's on date night. The calamari is always really yummy, and they never let down on their pasta dishes! Although I haven't tried their pizzas, I have heard nothing but great things. I love sitting by the windows that overlook the water, you get a nice view!

Went excited to enjoy the quality meal that I regularly enjoy at Vito's in Hartford, BUT was i disappointed. The setting was ok, but nothing special. The sweaty, complaining waiter was rushed and inattentive. The food was average and prepared in a rush. I sense they do a good after work bar and food business. I left disappointed.

I went there on Saturday Nov 19th. The first indication was the lack of patrons at 645pm, we thought the place had been shut down. We walked in and ordered off the prix fix menu. The waiter stated that they did not have Pinot Grigio wine which was listed after ordering. I said that is really what I wanted. He... More

The food is good and tasty, the prices are appropriate and the location is convenient from work. That is why this has become the go to place for the locals and those who work around a place for repeat business.

Too much for one person in one sitting, the pizza has plenty of meat, with big chunks of sausage, pepperoni and bacon along with cheese and sauce in a deep dish style crust. Food was good, portions large, prices range from $17-34 but seemed reasonable for the quality and ambiance.

Interesting enough, southern Italian italo-american food I actually liked! We were treated for a business dinner, buffet style. I was freaking out internally, not wanting to be a food snob (that I am), actually an ungrateful food snob... The place is overwhelmingly big, and outdated but it is a local staple for business and families. So go with it. The... More
