    Everytime I go to Las Vegas I eat at Don Vito's. It has yet to let me down with its excellent food and service. We had Johnny and Eddie and both of these waiters were excellent with their service. Johnny especially as he joked with us and made a feel very comfortable. It was my Birthday celebration this year and it could have not been better. The food is amazing at Don Vito's and everyone that I have taken their simply loves it. Do yourself a favor get away from the strip, take a drive to South Point and go to Don Vito's you will not regret it, you like me will be talking about it for years to come and so will your friends. 10/10 Don Vito's and thanks for a great Birthday night.

    I wanted to treat a friend that is local (Henderson) for springing for a couple of nights at the hotel. She told me she would always go to Don Vito's on special occasions and I thought finally seeing my friend after 8 years was pretty special, so I made a reservation for dinner. Everything, and I mean absolutely everything was perfect. From the appetizers, bread and garlic relish to the main meal and of course, dessert. The relish was amazing and the tiramasu was divine!

    Don Vito's has served wonderful meals in the past, so it was double disappointing to have a so-so meal this visit. Lemon mousse had no flavor, fish done perfectly but no flavor in the sauce, shrimp ravioli blah, even side of pasta had watery bland sauce, no garnish. Expresso sauce on the pork loin? BBQ flavor only - no coffee aspect. 3 very tiny scallops in the appetizer - but the lemon butter sauce as good.

    We decided to "discover" new places during Restaurant Week. Don Vito's is an Italian restaurant that offers more than just meatballs and sausages. There were three in our party and we each got a different appetizer because they all sounded delicious. And they all were: scallops on the half shell, black pasta shrimp ravioli, and prosciutto-wrapped field greens. Two of us had the branzino (whitefish) and one had the pork chop. Everything was cooked perfectly. Also, the service was impeccable. Johnny was very helpful in suggesting a wine that went perfectly with the fish. He and the other servers throughout the courses were so precise and polite. The menu is on the pricey side, but Don Vito's is absolutely worth every dollar.

    We've lived in Henderson for almost 3 years and have enjoyed shows at Southpoint and dinner at several restaurants within the casino. We had never tried Don Vito's but saw that it was on Restaurant week and we were impressed by the menu selection and the cost for dinner. We were both surprised at how great everything was. The service was spot on and the food was wonderful (even the 2nd day with leftovers). We will be back.

    Went for Restaurant Week menu which I enjoyed very much. The fish was cooked properly and very tasty. Our scallop appetizer was also good although the scallops were a little small. Our ice cream desert, "The Best". Would definitely recommend Don Vito's.

    This is the second time we dined at Don Vitos. The staff is very nice as is the ambiance. Overall the food was good with the exception of the $36 lobster tail milanaise which was dry and tough. Since we were celebrating a birthday, we did not send it back as it deserved to be. We love caesar salad which, when made properly, includes anchovies. They do not use anchovies and when we inquired about bringing some on the side, we were told there was a $2 upcharge.

    My husband and I were very disappointed in the food that we ordered. First of all the server said they had only caesar salad or 3 different types of soup, so we ordered the salad. It was very dry, hardly any dressing on it and even when I asked for extra dressing it did not help the taste. We found out later that we could have ordered a house salad but we were not told that we could substitute. I ordered Rigatoni Vito and the sausages where hard as a rock and the marinara sauce was tasteless. My husband order the Fra Diavalo and was totally disappointed. Tasteless again. We did enjoy the rolls with the garlic and tomato dip. Maybe it was an off night with the chef. We will try again in the near future and hope it will be better.

    We were a party of ten.The Osso Buco was stringy and hard to chew.Friends had eggplant parmesan and said it was all bread crumb and little eggplant.I thought the assistant waitress was a little rude. The regular restaurant was very good. Your bread and garlic oil is still the best. Also everyone thought the ten dollar fee to share an entree was a little high

    My wife and I have been coming to South Point for a long time and we always have dinner at Don Vito's. Last Wednesday 8-13-2014, my wife and I and four of our friends came for dinner. We had reservations and were seated right away. Then we had to wait for a waiter for a long time. The waiter finally came and delivered some rolls and olives in oil. The rolls were so hard we could not eat them. We never saw our waiter again until our meals arrived. The food was not up to par to what we had before . Our friends said their meals were not that good also. I'm sorry to say we will not be back.

    We have been locals for a year now and having been pleased with Silverado and Primarily Prime Rib we were looking forward to our dinner at Don Vitos. The stiffed mushrooms and our entrees, linguini with clams and a chicken dish with olives and artichokes, were at best marginal. The caesar salad was over loaded with cheese and they charged an extra $2 to have a few anchovies placed on top. We see no reason to go back to Don Vitos and now have an appreciation for the mixed reviewes.

    When we went it took a while for the waitress to come to get our drink and food order. Then that night there was a party of about 20 to 25 girls which were loud. Typically when I eat here its great but the food wasn't has good. Maybe because the cooks were slammed to due that big order.

    We are regulars at Don Vito's. It is one of our favorite restaurants. That said, there is a caveat the diner should be aware of to maximize enjoyment. First, come between 5 and 6 PM. Thereafter its gets too noisy for us and the servers get extremely busy especially with conventioneers, and you lose a little of that personal attention some of our favorite servers have. The food is excellent, the menu eclectic, value excellent.

    My wife had the Chilean sea bass and did not like it. Too greasy. This fish has enough oil inherently and the preparation was too greasy. The spagetti and meatballs however was very good. The meatballs could have been more flavorful but the noodles and sauce were good.

    This Italian restaurant in Southpointe Casino is a real find. We saw it last year when we were gambling in the casino. Each summer when we visit Vegas we try a different Italian restaurant. The restaurant itself is very classy with beautiful decor. The service is friendly and welcoming. The food was wonderful. Four members of our party had chicken Parmesan with the fifth person having the veal Parmesan. Our starters were soups and Caesar salads which were excellent. The dinner rolls were the best. We were all too full for dessert, but I'm sure it would have been a great end to a wonderful evening. This restaurant is a must visit for anyone in the area. We will definitely put that on our list of must eat there again.

    Don Vito's is a favorite restaurant with great service. Food is good with nice, large portions. This last time though I ordered Eggplant Parmesan and it was topped with way too much cheese, almost drowning out the eggplant. I would recommend the restaurant, nice atmosphere.
