Asked waiter for his opinion on which pizza to order and he suggested we just do a make your own if we can’t decide and once it came out 40 mins later it was cold. Caprese salad was disgusting, hard salad to mess up. Service was awful.

Had a wonderful dinner in the bar area and watched the Blues game. Excellent salads, calamari, fried spinach, chicken parmesan. Only thing better would to have been outside watching the game on their beautiful patio. Alas no tvs outside.

In our party of 6, we were running 15 minutes late from our reservation time. They were still accommodating. Most of the group got pizza which was fantastic! Only suggestion is offering half orders or pasta. Great food and atmosphere!

My chicken was dry and chewy. My son's pasta was overcooked to the point that he would not eat it. The fried spinach appetizer was delicious. I should have made that my dinner.

Always a great place to dine, especially prior to a performance at the Symphony, the Fox Theatre, the Black Rep, the Sheldon, Jazz at the Bistro and many other fine arts institutions in the area. Food is consistently well-made, service friendly and courteous, bistro atmosphere pleasantly bustling, plenty of parking in the area lots and on the street.

Making the reservation on open table from the website was s little wonky (from phone and desktop computer). Everything after was great. Service was great (we had Jesse, I think his name was-sorry). Food was great. Efficiency was great. Got to the Fox in plenty of time for our show. I haven’t visited Vito’s in quite awhile, but used to frequently. I will be back sooner rather than later.

Some of the best food I’ve esten at a restaurant; and I’m Italian and speak Italian. Both visits to Vito’s the service and food were excellent. Nice leasurky time with our friends. Noise was rather loud and ongoing, but it’s SLU and pizza after all. To be expected.

There was a problem tho with the VERY rude child next to me who kept throwing things on the floor and laying down on the long bench and kicking. She never ate. She just misbehaved the entire time. What was worse was her mother never corrected her once. Mother said “excuse me” for the child a couple of times but did not discipline the child or take her out or change places with her. She was always knocking at my purse which I placed on the bench beside me. Child was NOT a toddler but about 5-6. Obviously never gets disciple at home so continues to behave like this. I’m not a complaining old lady. I have 5 grandchildren, ALL well behaved. Because of her behavior it put the only wrinkle in the evening. I wish she had been my child to discipline. 🤫🤐

Also my friend lost a blue flowered scarf she left on back of chair. If you found it, I’ll come pick it up.

I cannot believe how good that pizza was. We ordered a veggie pizza. The crust is the perfect balance of crunchy and chewy. It was cooked to perfection. There was just the right amount of sauce and toppings. We ordered the cannoli, italian wedding cake and tiramisu. It was all heaven on a plate. Well done.

Vito's has been our go-to for special occasions or when we are in the Theater District and want the best for many years. Every time the service has been great and the food outstanding. We have also always found on street parking close by, and usually walk to Powell or The Fox. Love this restaurant.

The decor and atmosphere was drab...outdated and depressing. The hostess was ok but our server was dull. No pleasantries, especially after sitting down for a good 5-7 mins without anyone coming by. She just plopped down our waters and the olive oil for the bread and walked away. Another 5-7 mins went by and we finally got our little rolls and a drink order in. The restaurant wasn’t crowded so I’m not sure if this is normal or not. Saw the manager walking around but didn’t make it to us...hahaha
The calamari was pretty good, my Caesar salad was SOAKED/DRENCHED in dressing and the homemade croutons were not dried out enough that they stuck to my teeth like taffy. My husband enjoyed his spaghetti and meatballs (although the serving could’ve been for two people) and my seafood ravioli was just alright. I could go on and on about the lackluster service, the small but important things regarding outdated decor, the haphazard fixes to the restroom and the very sticky floor and much needed paint job of the booth walls but clearly this visit was our first and last time to Vito’s. Good luck.

Wasn't the best, not the worst...kinda blah...

It's not a cheap place to eat, so you'd expect at least the food or service would be great. Neither was. The sign on the door says it opens at 4:30PM. We sat out front for a few minutes then walked in at 4:31PM and there were 4-5 tables seated. So we got a bad table. Nobody cared.

The food came out in bursts...six of us starting our meals at different times. Not cool. So we had to wait for the 6th to finish his meal, which he didn't because he felt self conscious. Not cool.

Then to add insult to injury, they tried to stiff us on the Opentable points. Why?

We (party of 4) found the whole Vito experience tremendous from the friendliness of the staff (Sean and Vito especially) to the great salad and pizza. I am a pizza connoisseur and am always on the hunt for a superlative pie with the appropriate doneness; sauce and ingredient blend. Vito's was right up there with any I have found in the area. I also appreciated their concern for our Fox Theater timing - all was just wonderful and we will be back - you can bet on that.
