    Food was amazing just felt a little rushed. Wouldn’t take an appetizer order unless I gave them the whole dinner order. Told us they had a two hour minimum and i just have never heard that before unless it was New Years Eve l. It was Saturday night and my husband and i’s date night. Things just came too quickly and entire dinner was less than an hour and we weren’t looking for a meal to be that quick. Awesome food but didn’t like that we were so rushed.

    Vitolo’s food and service were exceptional! Being from NJ and having been to Emilio’s we had to try Vitolo out and it did not disappoint. Everything we tried was delicious especially the Striped Bass, Mozzarella, and Chicken Parm. And shout out to our server, Chris, who was phenomenal! We’ll be back for sure.

    From the moment I got there, I was not happy. I was informed by the hostess, I would have a two hour limit. The waiter rushed us through our dinner as fast as he possibly could’ve. On top of that it was extremely loud and unenjoyable. I definitely would not go back

    The four top next to us was incredibly loud and obnoxious. Twice I walked over to the check in area to ask for someone to ask them kindly to dial it back or another table. Nothing . The restaurant is loud, but this table was unacceptable. Our server joked about how loud they were, it wasnt funny and we were not entertained . No manger went by to even try to help. The restaurant was lovely but highly disappointed in this experience .

    So we chose to sit outside because it was loud and the weather was beautiful . We sat for almost a solid 10 minutes with no server until I said something . Then it picked up . Drinks were great food great , but then we asked to hand our food that was unfinished packed up and they did not give it to us . There was also a mistake on the check where we were charge for two desserts and they asked me if we had two …. I’m like , we didn’t even finish one … I think the dinner delivered our dessert to the wrong table . So there is work to be had in that department .

    This is not the first time I’ve been there. Every time I go, I try different things and the food is impeccable along with the service. We tried their lobster raviolis by suggestion this time. We certainly were not disappointed. Also had the mozzarella with the balsamic glaze. Also unbelievable. My girlfriend whole heartedly agrees. It’s a little bit of a drive for me since I’m in Hollandale, but I can’t wait to get back there.

    Great Food. Great Service. But way way too noisy. Have to do something about the acoustics in that place. Couldn’t have any conversation with the people sitting right across from me at a 4 top table. Noise level is very annoying. I had the Clams Oreganata , Chicken Parmigiana and Tiramisu….. all highly recommended. Delizioso 🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹

    The line for valet was long plan ahead and give yourself some time to get there. This location is a lovely hidden gem right off A1A near the beach right in the lobby of The Conrad Hotel. We checked in 15 minutes early, but were seated 10 minutes after our reservation. The bar was packed at 8:30pm. The food was exquisite! We ordered the Caesar salad which came with perfectly proportioned dressing and lovely croutons , the spaghetti a la carbonara paired with the chicken parmigiana was my absolute favorite Italian meal I’ve ever had (and I’ve eaten in Napoli and Rome Italy!). Our waiter, DEAN was INCREDIBLE. He made every attempt to ensure we were well taken care of. He went above and beyond to communicate my daughter’s allergies and was extremely pleasant. Wow. Dean, we will come back just for you and especially that chicken parmigiana! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Had a reservation for a month. After waiting 45 minutes after being told we would sit shortly we were offered a table at the chefs table which when explained was described as a unique dining experience but turned out to be a few tables with no atmosphere in the back of the kitchen. Very disappointing.

    Unfortunately we were not able to be seated until 45 minutes past our reservation time. When we were, we were seated by a non-operational exterior frosted door. Throughout the meal, people kept loudly trying to enter - which was startling. We didn’t get water for the first 15 minutes we were at our table, then it was never refilled. The food was good, but overall experience was terrible.
