Friendly staff with great food. Very loud...not the restaurants fault, people in general don't seem to know how to speak at a conversational level in public. May try again on a week night.
I took my daughter here to celebrate her getting into college! We both ordered the Cesar salad and shrimp scampi. It was delicious from starting with the bread to the cannoli for dessert. I can’t wait to go back! This was our first time and will definitely be back!
Very good authentic Italian cuisine. Attentive staff, our server Karen was excellent
Service was very prompt & courteous, even with children. Food was good and generous and a good value. We will come again
Great date night experience. Was surprised that some of the patrons were so casually attired.
We always love going to Vito's. The food and service are excellent. We went last Saturday night and the restaurant was busy and they were short-staffed so it took longer than normal. We will definitely be back tho as the food is always outstanding.
Went on a Saturday night and they were busy. Appetizer was tasty but not hot. Dinner was good, although waitress informed us it would be delayed because kitchen was too busy. I would go back but not on a weekend.
This was the anniversary of our engagement and we return to our local favorite.
So good 🎉🌈💃🏽🍝
Vito's is awesome as always! We go every Friday night. Excellent Chicken Parm, Filet Mignon, wine selection, etc.
Always a good experience.
Great food , outstanding service. Perfect atmosphere!!!
The food was fantastic! The service was spotty. The mask wearing was a joke.
Wonderful from appetizers to entree. My mussels were large and flavorful. The chicken franchaise was delicious. Our server was quick and attentive. Definitely going back again.
Beautiful meal for St. Valentine’s Day. It was our first visit and it was wonderful. We will definitely make this a favorite for out of town guests and special occasions....or just when we want really good Italian and reasonable prices.
Valentine's day at Vito's was the best ever! Vito's food is superior to any other Italian Restaurant in Jacksonville. Mary, our server is spectacular! The wine selection in very favorable to the dishes served. Can't think of anything that is not the best at Vito's. I recommend this restaurant to any who want the best Italian food experience in this whole metropolitan area. I don't know of an Italian Restaurant that is better or even as good as Vito's!!!
Valentines Evening, the arancini were amazing as our appetizer. Main course was the same, amazing! Our server, Jennifer was attentive and met all our expectations. After dinner, a trip to the bar area to listen to some music. Mathew is talented and covered all genre’s of music flawlessly. A surprise performance from the bartender accompanying Mathew on a duet drew a huge approval from the crowd. Overall, as always, a great evening! Well done, staff!!
I order the manicotti and what I got was a bowl of manicotti soup. All the tubes were like mush, pasta completely overcooked. All of the ricotta was just mixed in with tons of sauce that you could not see anything but a sea of red. Horrible! And on top of that, they charged me $1.00 for ice in my cocktail. I'm done with them. Go to Enzas. Also, soup was cool and the aroncinni was all cheese and no rice...considering they are rice balls.
Truly a great evening.
From the attentive service to every course of the meal. Excellent 👌
One of our Best Valentine's Day!
First time patronizing this fine establishment. Most certainly won’t be the last! The food, service, ambiance and price point is off the chart. Our server was Franco and he is simply outstanding. We encountered several attendants throughout our meal and each was provided incredible service. Our waters were always filled, our drinks we’re monitored closely so we never had to ask for another. The food was beyond authentic and so delicious. This restaurant just moved up to the top on our list of favorites! Loved it!!
Excellent Italian food from the calamari appetizer to main entrees to tiramisu desert. Service was good and restaurant has nice ambience. Will definitely return again
Excellent! Italian dinner without the 8hour flight.
Vito’s was perfect, from the amazing food, great wine, and beautiful venue. I would absolutely recommend Vito’s for any date, special occasion, or even if you just want some amazing Italian food!
Excellent in every way. Great food. Great service. Good wine list. Our go to for Italian now.
Outstanding as always. We’re regulars but have had excellent service from day one. Chef Giulio came to our table & asked how our food was & engaged in his usual witty banter. By far Vito’s is our favorite restaurant & we hope to celebrate many things there for years to come 😊
Our first time to Vitos and we were not disappointed.
It will be our new go to Italian !
I made a reservation and still had to wait 20mins for our table. We kindly asked the wait staff to box our soups, she never returned with them. Plus our food was rushed which greatly diminished the quality for such a fine establishment.
Second time eating here and this time was even better than the first. Very nice place. The food was great and the service was amazing.
First time visiting. Really enjoyed it!
We love Vito’s; however, this was our least pleasant experience. We were not able to truly enjoy the evening because of the hustle and bustle. We were seated directly in front of the kitchen doors and it was incredibly loud. Our waitress, Mary, did not take care or ensure that our orders were accurate. We felt rushed and anxious. The food was still delicious, but not to the level that Vito’s usually delivers. This will not be a place we come back to on a weekend.
ALWAYS A GOOD MEAL,WILL BE BACK.FRIENDLY SERVICE. ROY
This was our first time at Vito’s and we will absolutely be going back.
The party seated next to us had 4 or 5 kids running around the table and was a little loud, but that is in no way the fault of the restaurant.
Great food, great service and absolutely amazing music performed by the Groov.
Brought me wrong entree and when I questioned it was told it was right
After taking a few bites it was clearly not what I ordered(short ribs over linguine) and i had sausage and eggplant over rigatoni
They apologized and then said they were out of short ribs and would I like something else so I ordered veal piccata
No concession on any aspect of my bill
I ve been here several times before but I wont be going back
Delicious food! Awesome entertainment:)
Franco is the best! He made us feel we were in our vacation in Italy.
Will come back for more. Very good therapy during this pandemic
Delicious CHICKEN MARSALA with ANGEL HAIR PASTA. Generous portion. Delightful and efficient service by KRISTINA.
I was disappointed to find out this way of making a reservation does not include the option of of a booth and requires a call.
We had Marco who is amazing with his magic tricks. We always ask for him when possible. Chef came by and our food amazing as usual.
A genuine Italian family restaurant! Excellent!
Been going to Vito’s since 1995 over at his former location. Always was outstanding. Food, Service has always been the best
