    Very good experience. Food was outstanding especially the seafood ravioli. Only disappointment was the cost of a single glass of wine. $9.00 is high for a Riesling that can be bought for $12.00-$15.00 at retail for the bottle. $7.00 would be acceptable.

    I highly recommend Vito's in the Valley. Their downtown location is perfect for what it is - but it was only smart to expand the menu when you head to this location. The menu is well thought out and really has something for everyone.

    We ordered a pizza and the filet mignon. Both were excellent. Pizza has a great flavor, especially the sausage and was very much enjoyed. I didn't need a knife for my filet. It was cooked perfectly and was absolutely delicious. The vegetables were also very good. Service was exceptional.

    We have been to Vito's numerous times. It is our Wednesday night place to dine out. The food is always excellent, the staff attentive and courteous, and the wine list while not large has some very nice selections. I would recommend Vito's to anyone looking for first class food in a casual setting who doesn't want to make the drive to the Hill - but still wants authentic Italian food and great service.

    What a menu and every offering we tried, didn't disappoint. The eggplant parmigian was excellent. Thick cuts of eggplant, lightly breaded and covered in an excellent sauce. The Vito signature salad was over dressed, other than that it was an excellent salad. The pizza was outstanding and the salmon farfalle might have been the best dish of the night. The service was slow and not as attentive as we'd have liked. If management makes this a focus and trains the staff, this restaurant will become a huge success.

    This was our third trip to this location. We wanted the Sicilian pizza, but settled for the hand tossed after the server told us it would take 45 minutes to an hour for it. Next time, we'll order ahead. The pizza, antipasto salad and aranicini were very good. Our son ordered a calzone that filled his plate. Service was very good, as always and we will be returning, but ordering ahead, for the Sicilian pizza.

    I have been here before and this evening wasn't impressive. The caparese salad had such ice cold tomatoes on it that you could barely eat it very disappointing. The lamb chops were excellent but they were very small especially for the price tag. This wasn't the best visit there have been better.

    Nice decor and colors, great looking bar- HOWEVER----THE ACOUSTICS ARE TERRIBLE! The restaurant was half full and we couldn't hear the server when she spoke to us and we had to raise our voices across the table of 3 to hear each other- SO FRUSTRATING! PUT SOME CARPET TILES OR ACOUSTIC TILES ON THAT CEILING! That being said- probably the best pizza in town- absolutely delicious- hand tossed. The sicilian, too was very good but too doughy for me. Calamari and bread, sauce - delicious. We will be regulars, maybe try to sit near to front of the restaurant this time. I wish them great success. This site has not been so far. We will try to keep them in business as regulars. Good salad- house dressing a bit mild thought.

    The owner nade up for all the mistakes. I asked for Chompino when I made reservations. They didn't have it but they made it for me. Very good. Our salads came before the appetizers because the assistant waitress gave our appetizers to another table so we had to wait until they were made from scratch. Because we waited so long they didn't charge us for them. The chef personnally came out to ask about the food. I was somewhat disappointed for the evening but they did what they could for us. We've been here a number of times and will be back.

    This was my first visit and we were greeted and seated per our reservation and my request through Open Table for a window table. The food and service was very good. The waiter was knowledgeable and gave us suggestions per our requests. I am critical of most restaurant's noise levels and found that Vito's also disappointed in this category. I will return for future dinners and want to also take advantage of their happy hour.

    We overheard another server talking about the night specials and our server did not mention all of the specials. When we asked our server, they stated that they were not sure of them all but would find out and then took a very long time to get back with us. Once we ordered one of the entrees (risotto) which we later learned was being made fresh, was going to take a long time to come to the table. If we had been told this when we placed our order, it would of been our choice to either continue with this entrée or pick another. Poor communication from our server, when we asked for the manager, he made excuses about this entrée in which we stated that if we had been told upfront we would not be having this discussion. Dinner took over 2 hours.

    First off, Give Vito's a try 'cause its better than this review. They were just "off" last night. We had the Arancina (Risotto Balls) and sent them back as the inside was still very cold and hard. Salads were over dressed the Antipasto Salad included items that were not supposed to be part of the presentation (salami in particular). The Penne Ala Vodka was superb. The Medaglioni a la Bordelaise and unfortunately they were very tough and undercooked. The potato that came with the meal was very dry. Service was sporadic and the waiter was constantly forgetting items we asked for BUT....BUT.... BUT,, please give this place a try. We have eaten here a few times and each time we enjoyed everything about it. Last night was the EXCEPTION.....

    We eat at many types of restaurants ranging from the basic, to 5 star international in high end luxury resorts. In our experience, good service is hit or miss and it doesn't always correlate to the price of the menu or location of the restaurant. Vito's waiter Brian was the nicest waiter ever! We were so impressed with his positive attitude and desire to give his customers a great dining experience. Vito's is lucky to have him. about the food- I was pleasantly surprised by the seafood dish that was served on a cutting board with the pieces arranged horizontally and vertically in a very creative display. I did not expect this from an Italian restaurant.

    The service was excellent. This was our second visit and was much better than the first one. The meals were delicious and came out hot. Wait staff were not hovering, but available if needed. We will return and enjoy many more meals here. During the first visit, they were much busier then for the second and we did not have to wait for our reserved table as we did the first night.

We chose to sit outside which was nice, with the exception of the yellow jackets occasionnally flying around - but you can stop mother nature. otherwise, the experience was very nice and the food was well prepared and presented. We will be back again and plan to bring friends.
