Vito's is a small, family-owned restaurant that serves tasty Italian. I love it. My favorite is pizza but I also love their salad (I always ask for mozzarella cheese to be added and they're happy to oblige!).

We're blessed to have this option in Nelson. Great food and waitstaff. And the regular menu still holds good surprises like terrific pasta with meat sauce and meatballs.
