Vito has been highly recommended
Vito has been highly recommended to me over the years, and I finally found out why. The clams were unlike any that I've had before, in a perfect tomato sauce. The lasagna is out of control (just get it, trust me), and the spaghetti della casa is truly exceptional. We drank a bottle of Heitz Cellars 1987 Napa Cab, which was among the best wines I've ever tasted. A perfect anniversary dinner - thank you Vito!

Great date place!
Very old school romantic. Red leather booths. Waiters in tuxedos. Service top notch. Great menu and food prepared just right. Save room for dessert. Great ambience. Quiet and elegant. Prices quite reasonable for what you get.

We were impressed from the moment we walked in. Started with a couple martini's from the bartender Katrina, strong but wonderful, she made up a special drink for my fiance and she loved it. From appetizer to desert there were no dissapointments. I had the Cioppino (they call it Zuppa di pesce) which was rich with flavors, and she had the Filet which was amazingly tender. I would recommend either one and recommend anyone try this place out.

Vito is classic Italian place that reminds of the old school neighborhood restaurants back east. Our waiter Alberto was excellent; the food is classic. We went early on a Saturday before a play and were served according to our schedule. The "value" wine list has some excellent picks; the rest of the wine list is somewhat pricey. Would definitely go back!

Good business lunch location
Good food, very good service, extensive menu, I had the salmon which was very good. The decor was old fashion but clean and tidy.

My favorite Italian restaurant
There are so many regulars that you know how good the food is and how welcome Vito & Roberto make everyone feel. The wait staff is terrific. It's always our first choice!

Love this Place
Been coming here for years, then somehow forgot about it. Had dinner there and it brought back all the reasons I need to remember this place. Just a great hang, knowledgable waiters with a great sense of humor, and excellent food. Need I say more?

The BEST Caesar salad ever
The BEST Caesar salad ever made table-side. Hot bread, yummy pasta. A great choice for a classic Italian meal.

We found a new restaurant to love
My husband and I dined here on a whim. I had dined here years ago and had completely forgotten about it. Then we made a last minute reservation here. We're so glad we did. I found the restaurant to be romantic. The food delicious. My husband said I think we found a place for our date nights. We will definitely be back.

Food is always good, servers are great in a career-waiter way that is an unfortunate rarity these days and - my favorite part - it kinda looks like Tony Soprano might wack someone here. I think I was there only two times when they remembered me - unexpected and really nice. Well, my girlfriend is pretty, so that may help, but still - it doesn't happen at many places.

LUV THIS SPOT
We've been going to Vito's for years with groups from work. Always great! This time was just a few friends and again, loved it.

Great Italian Food Westside
If you're looking for a great neighborhood Italian Restaurant, this is it.
Great service and amazing pasta in a fun atmosphere

Restaurant was great but I
Restaurant was great but I won't use Open Table to book a reservation there again. 1000 pts is a ripe off vs my VIP card there.

We were a party of 6 and it all went very well. Have already made another reservatiion for two for tomorrow evening with another out of town guest.

first time was memorable.
first time was memorable. Really good food and they have a bargain wine page up front. Try the veal meatballs and spaghetti

Service was wonderful, as was the food! We LOVE the caesar salad made table-side, and this seems to be a dying art which they preserve and perfect here.
7/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Had to take a taxi from the pier, but nice change from the usual restaurants we ate at. Very fast service and the veal meatballs were amazing!!!!

Vito et vita (Vito and Life)
When you read the reviews of Vito on Yelp, roughly 95% feature the phrase "old school. The food is classic Italian, to be surew but Vito is more than that. Back in my own school days, I cooked in Italian joints in NYC. My grandmother was from Italy so I grew up on the stuff. To put it simply Vito does what it does correctly. The dishes are generously portioned, well prepared and impeccably presented. The drinks are healthy (and so is the check, but you get value for your expenditure) Vito is iconsistent. I've been eating here for 20 years and the food is as good today, as it was back then. Solid food. Plenty of it. Done right. Presented well. Great bar, and the best cannoli this side of Sheepshead Bay! Eh? Who lives better than us, right?

These people will bend over
These people will bend over backwards to make sure you have a good experience. Pricey, but worth it if you top notch service and food. Plus they give regulars a discount card to come back. Nice touch. My new new favorite place to hole up get a wine buzz and dig the flavor of their food. Go you'll like it.

Always feels like home!
Love the food here, old school italian, always very good. Everyone there makes you feel like one of the family, a throwback to the old LA restaurants where everyone knew you and what you liked, and how you like it. Best spaghetti and meatballs (and martinis) in town.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined here on a date night. Everything was perfect. Great service, amazing food, wonderful dessert. We can't wait to go back! Bravo

Good food with authentic feel
I got the clam linguini dish and it was delicious! My first time finishing all of my pasta dish. We also ordered the ceasar salad, one of the best ive ever had. they made it in front of us, very garlicy and so tasty! last we got a veal dish, very soft and good. The server was nice and attentive. Definitely would go back!

Frequent Diner here
When our daughter came to town on 10/4 we decided to take her here for dinner, and made reservations for that evening. We must have gotten the last table available, as we were seated next to the kitchen door, which was not ideal. Although the food was outstanding, as usual, the traffic in and out of the kitchen in a narrow aisle between tables was disconcerting! Service, as always was good. We are regulars here since we discovered it a few months ago.

Great Italian Food
We frequently dine at Vito's because the service is always wonderful, but the food is the best. We shared the seafood salad and 1 giant veal meatball, Chilean sea bass and veal piccata ....way too good and a great value.
We always recommend it to our friends.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Whenever we want a quiet diner with good food and ambience we go to Vito's.
We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and various other special events there.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, everything was outstanding. Sauteed sand dabs done to perfection; friend's veal meatballs were HUGE; Veal picatta done beautifully. LOVE Vito's caesar salad prepared table-side. Although spaghetti and meat sauce was $3.00 extra in substitution for vegetable it was well-worth it, per Hubby!
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Caprese salad with put your own olive oil/ balsamic vinegar to taste, plus the great tasting pizza rolls......
Specials sounded good, but the veal dishes won out for both of us and great desserts with their house blend coffee
and we were happy............

Better for eating than talking
The penne arrabbiata was the best I've tasted. Food was generally very good as it has been for the last 25 years. Standard prices are on the high side, but discounts are often available.

Great little Italian restaurant
Good food and good service. First time here and I was impressed

Excellent experience, I would
Excellent experience, I would definitely recommend this place for a lovely night out. Pricy yes, but nowadays what isn't pricy.
I Love that we were not rushed to accommodate their next reservation.

spaghetti de la casa
The food is as close to home made Italian as you can get. I love this place.
