Vito's Italian Ristorante & Pizzeri
I was confused with the name of the restaurant as on the building outside are 2 names Fiano's & Vito's. The photos on the Open Table website listed, under the name of Vito's shows 1950 style red booths, a counter bar to eat at if you are alone. I was greatly surprised. It must have been redone recently. I had the Veal Piccata, with pasta & marinara sauce in a separate dish. It was very good. The sauce however, had seeds in the tomato. It needs an extra straining so pure sauce comes out! My friend had the chicken cutlet parmeggiana & enjoyed it. Happy Hour was going on when we were there. Martinis are $6. I ordered the lemon drop & the waitress charged us $11 instead of $6. All Open Table listings should state where the parking is.

On our first visit to Fiano's,
On our first visit to Fiano's, we were quite disappointed to find that the delicious wheat crust pizza Vito's featured was off the menu. We tried the regular pizza & didn't like it. We came back a few weeks later, & ordered from the new menu. Our table was reserved in a location that we like, & we were made to feel very welcome. Our waitress said that she'd only been there for about a week, but she was really nice & helpful. We especially liked the garlic toast & the risotto. Although we'll miss the great pizza, we are glad that we gave it a second chance.

Great Downtown San Juan Restaurant
We stopped at Fiano's for dinner before going to a show. The Food was excellent Italian, and the atmosphere was great. There was a lot of people mingling at the bar, and the restaurant was active. The management was very friendly, and the service was great. All four of us enjoyed our food. I had the Chicken Marsala, there was just the right amount of pasta, the sauce was delicious and the chicken was cooked perfect. It wasn't too heavy, and tasted great. You can't miss the Fiano's size wine, if you order a glass. And the Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding was outstanding!

Great new place in town
We had such a great experience at Fiano's recently. They were able to seat our party of 12 without hardly any notice. The owner Sid greeted us like we were family coming into his home for a meal. Food was outstanding quality. Portions on the children's menu were nice size. We enjoyed it so much that we ordered it for delivery the following night. Great to have a place like this in San Juan. We will go back for more.
