    We go to Vito's before going to the Fox. We have season tickets to the Fox so we are there a lot. The staff is amazing the service quick and professional and the food fantastic. Wouldn't think of going anywhere else. It was raining Sunday and we were early but they let us in so we didn't have to stand in the rain! Always recommend this place for Fox goers

    We had reservations for 3 and had a short wait. We were seated in the bar at a drafty table with two chairs. A third chair was brought in from the outside. It was cold the whole meal. The food and service were good. However, there are too many good restaurants that would save a warm table with a reservation to risk this again. My cousin's wife wore her coat the whole meal.

    Exellent food and service. Very unique pizza combinations. Fresh Mozzarella. Quite the Sicilian touch to all the food! Also a neat part of town, the Fox is a block and a half away. I highly recommend Vitos to anyone who loves true Italian food.

    As usual, the food was very tasty. It was very busy the night we were there so service was on the slow side. We were told that they ran out of a certain red wine - a malbec and coffee (very unusual). The restaurant is convenient to Powell Hall.

    Even though it wasn't crowded we had to wait a long time for the food....which came out lukewarm. The prosciutto and arugula pizza...had iceberg or green leaf lettuce on it....not arugula! We mentioned to the waitress, who said she would say something to the "new" cook. The calamari came with a tasteless, orange colored, mayo-based dipping sauce...yuck! Food is just OK. Not good like it use to be.

    The calamari was the most rubbery I've ever had, didn't get bread until after the main courses arrived. My main course was completely wrong, and the replacement was half wrong, and my wide's dish was cold in the middle. To top it off the staff was arguing in the back relatively near our table. Would never recommend it to anyone.

    We went after attending a local event, and the staff was helpful and friendly, quickly seating us and getting drinks and appetizers. gotta have the risotto balls every time we go, from now on! enjoyed three different pizzas, all were exceptional (margherita, vegetarian and sicilian). Definitely going back for more!

    Vito's has changed their menu and I'm not sure it was for the better. The meatballs in my pasted tasted chalky. Not sure how you can do that to meatballs. We've been coming here for years but things better improve or next time will be our last. There are a lot of other restaurants in the neighborhood to choose from.

  • Average Food - The Best I Can Say
    DrJSTL
    Dined on 10/8/2014
    We came to eat here before a show at the Fox Theater because there are limited dining spots close by and this restaurant seemed to have good reviews. The first problem we encountered was parking - or lack thereof. The service staff was friendly enough but it could not compensate for average tasting food that was over-priced. I left thinking: I could have made this at home. The problem is that I have been eating very good food at places outside of the city. I came in hoping for better than average food and unfortunately this restaurant did not meet my expectations.

    We had 2 kids and 2 adults on our way to the symphony. We arrived at 5pm; concert was @ 7pm so we were NOT worried about time. The waitress immediately said "we'll get you out of here in no time"-we say we are not rushed. 2 more x's we reminded her until we ordered. Why ask a kid "do you want chicken added ($$$) to his pasta? Also wrong was to let a child order pesto chicken and claim its 'single size' then bring a pound of green pasta which went to waste. My pizza & my friend's pizza were her "two favs' on the menu-we thought they were avg. $17 spaghetti, 2 sodas&2 waters-I think we could have done better for $100+

    We went there for dinner. With our reservation we were seated promptly and attended to quickly by server. I had Beef Ravioli which was very good. Sometimes white sauce is too thick and rich and this was just right. Another of our party had pizza that was delicious. Very good selection of beer but the bar is a bit limited as I was unable to get a Sidecar.

    Toasted ravioli was excellent, my wife and I split a Caesar salad and it was good, however we also split a fettachinni Alfredo with chicken and it was not that great. Maybe it's because Vito's just has a different receipe for their sauce but the flavor was not there. I would go back, but may consider and a different option for dinner.

    Server made us feel very rushed, four courses in just over 1 hour. Salads and appetizer average, meals unacceptable, dessert disappointing Since most of us concentrate on the main course here's our experience: Home Made Lasagna 1) swimming in tomato sauce 2) Sparce on content 3) not something We could classify "home made" Seafood Risotto 1) excessively oily 2) Shrimp was mixed into Risotto with TAILS ON, tuff to remove with just a fork and no side plate. This is a Pizza joint serving quasi Southern Italian food. Desert was disappointing, both the cheese cake and cannoli were drenched in Hershey Chocolate sauce from a squeeze bottle. Servers attention to detail was lacking in all aspects except presentng bill and processing.
