    We were looking for a place to enjoy dinner before a concert at the Fox Theater. Perfect! It helped make the evening special. Food was great, the corner booth for our group of 5 was just right. We will be back the next time we are going to the Fox.

  • 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.

    Visiting daughter who attends SLU. Great Sicilian style pizza. Tricia, our waitress, was excellent...she even provided us change for the parking meter out front...was very customer oriented. All food very reasonably priced. Definitely go back next trip to St. Louis.

    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.

    Love the patio at Vito's but on a rainy Friday night we sat in the bar and it was just as nice. All around, dinner was very good. Pizza was delicious and I think the spaghetti and meatballs is a winner. It isn't a giant bowl like you'll find elsewhere but filling nonetheless. Meatballs were a bit salty this time but that's not usually the case. My go to item on the menu. Also like the seafood pasta.

    Vito's always delivers excellent food and service each and every time! I have had the opportunity to sample many of their wonderful dishes over the years and never been disappointed. My biggest problem is that I always want to order my most recent fair again because it was so wonderful the last time which prevents me from trying something new. I have come to realize that it just doesn't matter: the food is awesome! The service is consistently excellent as well: very friendly, thoughtful and accommodating.

    Previously we visited Vito's on numerous occasions. The food has always been great, but the attitutRs of the staff was always one of disdain. I actually swore off the place for 2+ years until my wife convinced me to try it again. I'm glad to say the staff was much more pleasant and friendly. The food is still great.
