When my wife and I were seated the host said "follow me sir" and gave us one menu. It was as if my wife was not there and I was dining alone. Wait staff should be instructed to not touch their face and nose. Our order was wrong and the server acted as if my wife should just go ahead and eat while it took another 15+ minutes to get my dinner. Both meals were cold. The beef spedini was tough and stringy. Our waiter ignored us during most of the meal, rarely checking in for refills. Extremely disappointing evening.

It is a fun place to eat. I really enjoyed the pizza. My wife got a pasta dish but liked my pizza better so we shared our entrees. We would definitely order the brushetta appetizer again. All in all we would definitely go back again.

I love Vito's so much! Everything is delicious, and the bread is so amazing that I demand that anyone who doesn't want their pizza crusts must hand them over to me! (Family only lol) It's so nice to find a good restaurant which takes reservations so you know you won't spend an hour waiting for a table.

We didn't go. Enroute to the restaurant, I tried to call three times & could never reach a real person- only a recorder & the last time I was cut off. No way to leave a msge.

I tried to cancel through open table at 6 pm for a 6:15 pm reservation & it responded to me that it could not take a cancellation.

We eat all the time at Vito's in the Valley & are always pleased. Disappointed that it didn't work out at their other location.

We eat at Vito's often. Its a convenient place to eat if going to the Fox Theater. Only complaint, but not even a complaint...the seating is tight. Its a good way to get to know your neighboring diners!

We have been here many times. However I last visit, the service was horrible. We did come after a matinee and did have reservations. However, they were rushing us out the door for the pre-theatre crowd. Very disappointing. Luckily our food was still good.

We had an excellent meal Very good service once we were seated; however, we had a reservation for 6:15 and didn't get seated until 6:30. Caused a little bit of a rush to make our theater start time. One of the best restaurants near Fabulous Fox.

If you're in the mood for classic Southern Italian cuisine from grandmother's kitchen, then Vito's s the place in St. Louis. Friendly staff, casual atmosphere good value for the money the classic here are very well received; lasagna, spaghetti, raviolas are all made on-site and taste great! I would recommend to all who love a red-sauced based dining experience!

Had dinner with an older friend at Vito's a few days ago. I chose the restaurant because I've passed it several times during my daily walks and have wanted to try the food there. Read the dinner menu online and decided there was enough variety for the 3 of us to chose from. We were not disappointed. We all had ravioli for dinner and I was please with my sampler choice which had three different ravioli in 3 different sauces. Really quite good.
Wait staff was efficient, informing us of the dinner special and describing our ravioli accurately.
Very quiet there and not crowded at all, but then again it was a mid-week day and early evening.
My wife and I do plan on returning and trying other menu items.
Loads of metered parking in the area and meters stop having to be fed at 7PM.
Restaurant does have a 10 car parking area which we didn't even check because of all the street parking that was available
All in all a pleasant dining experience.

Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed even though I had an Open Table reservation. I've been there before and it is very good. Their hours of operations need to be updated on the app.
