Great food but the service was slow for not having many patrons. Appetizers took a really long time.

We were early, but were seated right away. The booth was super small - but it worked. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It didn't take long to get our food - it was hot and very, very yummy. Since we were celebrating my birthday we enjoyed a piece of their Italian wedding cake - Oh my goodness - I've never had melt in your mouth cake before. It was so good.

The dining area is pretty cramp. I was sitting at a table for two, one side was a bench and the other a chair. I was sitting in the outside of the table in the chair. The aisle behind me was only about two feet wide ans I always felt like someone was going to run into my chair.
Our main course arrived about 15 minutes after we ordered. My wife had salmon, and, I had chicken. I could tell that the food had either been kept in warmers or was reheated. My vegetables were hardly warm at all and the noodles were about the same.
We had two meals and two salads. The bill with tax was right at $61.00. I felt for the quality of the food it was much too expensive. I would not return or recommend this restaurant to a friend.

Packed—-and due to the fact that there was a party of SEVENTEEN who did not vacate their tables in a timely fashion, several parties were not seated by the time of their reservations (including OUR part of four). BUT....the servers were really GOOD and seemed to take everything into stride! Our server was patient and very pleasant—-especially considering the large party had several small children which were literally running all over....definitely a hazard to servers!! Kudos to servers for holding it together!!

Attentive service without being intrusive. Delicious sauce on the pizza. Cassata was wonderfully light. Great beer selections on tap. Waitperson was knowledgeable about the beers, and let us sample the two we were deciding between. You can reserve a table or a high top, it’s nice to have that option.

Vito's has always been known for having some of the best pizza in St. Louis, and THE best pizza in midtown. Great place to go after a SLU basketball game or an event at Chaifetz arena, or before or after an event at the Fabulous Fox.

We ate lunch at Vito's before going to a matinee at The Fabulous Fox. Vito's offered an option of a lunch buffet or ordering off the menu. We chose to enjoy the lunch buffet that offered a pasta, salad, soup and various pizza offerings. Each of the offerings was very good. We would recommend Vito's for a great Italian meal before or after the theater.

The food was good and our server was great. Even though we had a reservation, we weren't greeted and didn't feel immediately welcome. We were seated in the middle of a very busy section by the bar & were bumped several times when staff moved chairs etc. The service was quick and we liked the proximity to Powell Hall & The Fox Theatre.

This restaurant was right near our hotel and we chose to eat there before a show at the Fox. I would suggest reservations - we tried to get them days ahead of time and still didn’t get the exact time we needed. But we’re glad we could eat there! We had the pasta and pizza and they were both good!

Food was great. Service was good. The steak strips came as a steak without a steak knife so we had to try and cut it with a butter knife. Also it was rare so if you order be sure to let them know how you’d like it cooked. Would eat there again. Wait staff was great and food was overall good.

We waited too long for our server to make contact with us, then our food was cold when it got to our table. We had theater tickets so we just ate it room temperature and went a about our evening. Our water glasses were empty more then they were full. We typically have good experiences at Vito's so hopefully this is a one time situation.

Vito's was pretty busy on Sat night, and our 6:15 reservation really helped us get seated so we could eat before going to the symphony. We were immediately seated and given menus, and Indira our waitress stopped by very quickly to take our order. The complimentary bread was heavy and dense, which my wife did not enjoy, but I thought was good. Salads arrived shortly after, Tricolore for me and Panzanella for my wife, and were very good. Entrees arrived a few minutes after we finished our salads, beef tortellini for me and rigatoni w/ broccoli in alfredo sauce for my wife. And both were very good. Indira quickly checked in when we they were gone, and since we chose to skip dessert, brought the check right away. We were out the door with plenty of time to make it to the symphony.

Vito's is conveniently located within walking distance of The Fabulous Fox, so it's an obvious choice for dinner before the show. I usually split the salmon pasta, which is not on many local restaurant menus. Salads are consistently fresh. Portions are not oversized, so leftovers are not an issue.

Our service was terrible. I can't give you his name, because he never mentioned it. Was forgetful with our drinks, terrible with refills. Never came back after we requested more bread or refills on drinks. Food took forever, I'm sure he screwed up, because people who arrived after us got their meals way
before us. Pasta dishes were lukewarm.
