Yum Yum in a Rush
Service was incredible....and the food was delicious. The place was packed - there was a lot going on in Hartford that night - but we were in and out on time. Brent did a great job.

Way better than advertised....
My wife and I went here before a show we were on our way to see. Parking is ok, but there is plenty of street parking in Hartford anyway. Walking in the door we were greeted accordingly and immediately sat. It was not busy, but it was nice that they didn't take 4 hours to find a table like some places.
Our waiter, Brent, was awesome. He kindly asked if we were in town to do anything and if we needed to be out by a specific time which is awesome and even gave us the best directions to get there. First, the bread and aioli that they give you at the table is amazing. So good that we purchased some to take home. Our appetizer was the Fiochhi which were delicious and our entrees (ribeye and scallops) were just as great! Awesome place!

Above average Italian food
We really enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Vitos. It was a beautiful day outside, maybe that explains the lack of people inside the restaurant. The dining experience was above average from the drinks to the antipasto to the main coarse (no room for dessert-too much food),our waiter was quite accomadating.We live 25 miles outside Hartford, but we will be back,it is worth the drive.

Taste of Hartford
We chose Vito's from the list of restaurants participating in the Taste of Hartford week. It was an opportunity to try someplace we had never been before. We were very satisfied with the food. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, water was attentively refilled, portions were perfect and the atmosphere was pleasantly lively.

This was our 2nd dinner experience here in the past 6 months and the results were mirrored! The food was amazing and service excellent! We travel from east of Waterbury and the experience all around isn't available from any of the other Italian venues in Hartford or heading back west to the Waterbury area. We've eaten at many of the Maxx's and other area restaurants and vote this #1!

Great pre-show dining!
Vito's is close to the Bushnell, and convenient for a great bite to eat before a show. Food was fantastic!

Love the pizzas!
We go to Vito's whenever we're in Hartford for an event at the XL Center. Love the meat stuffed pizza, meat lovers overload!

Vito's was recommended by some friends. The location was perfect for us since were were attending an event at the Bushnell. The food (from appetizers to entrees, including a special, to desert), service, and ambience were excellent and the most enjoyable meals and experience set the tone for a pleasant evening. Thank you.

A Gold Nugget ! ! !
My wife and I have recently moved from California and are now in downtown Hartford. We made reservations at Vito's By the Park for a Saturday night and the restaurant was incredible ! Food, service, atmosphere were A1! The bill did not " overshadow" the evening either..... Great price point for such top notch food ! We will be back soon !!

We ate there prior to going
We ate there prior to going to a show in Hartford. The server was made aware of our time requirements and he made sure we were served promptly enough for us to make the show on time. Our entrees were both great. The only downside was our appetizer of crostini with ricotta and fig jam. The crostini was a little stale, the ricotta dry and the fig jam was flavorless. Overall the place was very good and would surely go back.

Great pre-show dinner
Our 1st visit was delightful! Since we were going to a show at the Bushnell, we parked there and walk the short distance (< 10 min) to Vito's through the park. The service was professional & attentive but not overbearing. We liked the ambiance. Light jazz background music allowed us to enjoy our conversation without competition. The food was delicious. We started with clams and oysters on the half shell - fresh, sweet and scrumptious. My husband had one of the evening's specials: a ricotta gnocchi with sausage. He thoroughly enjoyed it. I had pasta puttanesca with shrimp. The shrimp was wonderfully fresh and cooked perfectly. A basket of fresh rolls and flat bread preceded our dinner - also very good. Highly recommend.

dinner and service was excellent.
dinner and service was excellent. open table reservation online works perfect and the reservation is being reconfirmed by phone. i love the fact that it is so close to the bushnell theater. Great place to have a nice dinner before seeing a show.

Food was quite good (as expected
Food was quite good (as expected for the price paid). Location was great, with nice views of the park. Overall ambience and decor was great, the tables had plenty of space between them (a personal pet peeve of mine is expensive urban restaurants with tables squeezed into a small space).
Unfortunately, our waitress was less than impressive. She was certainly friendly and polite, but quite frankly she was not good at being a waitress. She was slow to greet us, slow on water refills, the bread came only a few minutes before the entree, and slow on bringing the check. She seemed to try and do all things for her section at the same time, as I could see her tray of four tables drinks being delivered all at once.

My son and I had dinner at Vito's By the Park before attending a show at XL Center. The food was excellent; I had salmon and my son enjoyed a pasta dish. A perfect dinner!

After trying to make a reservation @ another popular restaurant, I came across Vito's at The Park. So glad I did. We were a party of 6 before the Justin Timberlake concert. The service was prompt & courteous, the food excellent. We hade a selection of appetizers and pizzas. I had the Famous Meatballs appetizer, yummy!!!!! If your in the Hartford area, GO!!!!!!

We went for a leisurly lunch
We went for a leisurly lunch at 1:15pm prior to a Saturday 3:30pm concert...the food was excellent and we would return. We had the seafood sampler and a beet salad and thebroccoli rabe with sausage and beans and all were good though the beets a bit undercooked. The coktails were also excellwent.
I must say that it was fortunate we allowed enough time for this lunch as the service seemed oddly slow....it did not make a huge difference but we did barely make it to the concert!!
The waiter was quite friendly and good but not quite sure what the service delays were...

Vito's never disappoints. Went for a special occasion, and boy was it special! Thanks to everyone for a great dinner and a wonderful time.

A bit bland
I've always loved Vito's for great entrees, flavorful salads and amazing pizza. That said I was a little disappointed with lunch this week. The Italian Wedding soup was bland and my grilled chicken panini was too greasy/buttery and lacked bold flavors.
Just bad luck, I've been to Vito's many times and always enjoyed the food.
