Great local hidden gem. Glad we found it. Food and service were great.
Had a wonderful dinner with my family. The waiters are exceptional and the food is 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟.
Vito has perfected the outdoor dining experience! So happy to be back!
Had a great time. Food was delicious and waiter was fantastic
I took my Valentine’s Day date here but on the 13th lol . It was good their patio experience is good it’s low lit and the fence they have around their place keeps the people from bugging you outside . The food was amazing . Hands down some of the best Italian food I have ever had. I do not remember the servers name as I was hammered but do get the Manhattan! Its delicious. I will be coming back !
Terrible experience !!
The makeshift wall in their outside seating fell on 3 ppl in our party due to winds!
We received no apologies!!!
We were not acknowledged for the mishap!!
There was a total lack for response for our safety and well being!
We were rudely transferred to a different table, as if the winds knocking down their “wall” was our fault!
In fact we found the staff and manger to be very rude and
They for sure lost our business.
Was very pleased with the outside dining experience ... they did a good job of keeping tables spread out, plenty of heaters, and the lighting made it feel very inviting. Our service was very good, as was our food.
Chicken Parm not on menu but we ordered and they were happy to make....it was good (not great as Dan Tana's or Craig's. Service excellent! Pasta salty but well prepared.
Great outdoor dining set up and fabulous food, as always!
Great food and great service
We love this establishment! Great food and service!
One of my favorite Italian spots! Nice ambiance, friendly staff, and a nice outdoor dining area that’s nicely spaced out. Plenty of heat lamps too for the chilly days. This is definitely a go to spot for me!
Birthday celebration that was great.
Vito's has followed current safety protocol extremely well. Ourdoor dining there was very comfortable and enjoyable. Staff, as always, are amazing. Love Vito's.
Great food, been there many times. The Outdoor eating is great with nice ambience. Prices are reasonable also.
The staff were perfectly attentive and the food was delicious! They easily accommodated special vegan and vegetarian entree entree requests as well as a picky child. The back patio area was lovely with romantic lighting.
Had to wait at least 15 minutes to be seated, table not ready, hostess rude, and seated couple of people before us.
They have done a great job of transitioning to dealing with the new restrictions on dining, yet still maintaining that intimate neighborhood Italian restaurant atmosphere, level of service, and overall dining experience.
Service & ambience are very good -- the outdoor setting felt festive and safe. Their bread is very good! I've been to Vito twice. The first time was better -- I had veal, and it was excellent. This time my sand dabs were a little lackluster. Cocktails and wine list are good. The roasted pepper salad was NOT good -- the peppers seemed stewed rather than roasted. However, the zabaglione dessert is excellent! All in all, a nice experience, and a fairly convenient location.
Best Italian restaurant in Santa Monica!!! Great food, beautiful ambience in the outdoor area. Service is always great and no matter what you order it always taste great !
Food was excellent. Staff was extremely welcoming. Overall a great experience.
Thoses waitress never approach to our table and ask if everything was alright
But they do ask to all white people was there.
Good for Vito's for the challenges they succeeded in overcoming during this unique period. Converting their garage into outside fresco dining felt safe and relaxing. Outside lights, umbrellas and heaters helped alot. Wonderful service, good food makes this a wonderful go to place to dine.
Absolutely love it here! Best Italian in SM!
Unfortunately two of us had stomach problems, one starting in the middle of the night and one the next morning. Food was good except Caesar salad wasn’t up to par.
Quality serví as usual and the food speaks for its excellence
We love Vito!
I’ve always wanted to try Vito for almost 30 years. Finally got the opportunity when a friend came into town for business. I’ve always heard that they had amazing food and it was true. Fantastic steaks, veal, pasta etc. plus a well stocked bar with all the best top shelf liquors. They have a great wine list although they were a little short on white wines. This place was not cheap...But...you are getting a top quality Italian meal for that price. Overall this place lived up to its reputation for great Italian food. I recommend all of you out there to give it a try, some time. Buon Appetito
The server was horrible, he would walk away while we were still talking, did not provide us with essentials for our food and table and was rude. The food was mediocre.
Fabulous as always! Our kids were in from out of town can’t wait to visit again and go back to Vito’s
It has been 15 years that I have been to Vito’s and quality of the food and service has not changed. OUTSTANDING
We will be back
Wonderful delicious old school Italian. Not very visual with all the Covid walls but what great to be out and about.
Outdoors dining worked well. Felt safe and service was great.
Best neighborhood Italian food on the Westside, great service, great food, not cheap
ACCOMODATIOS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN GREAT. STLL VERY GOOD.
First the food was excellent and that’s why we dine at Vito. We also enjoyed the outdoors experience.
The service was extremely poor. We had to ask for menu and silverware, were not given options on wine selection. The heater nearby was moved to be placed near someone else. We had to ask for bread multiple times and never got refills on water. I would not be so disappointed if I didn’t see the waiter going to other tables and even lighting their candles while ignoring our table time after time; making us feel super uncomfortable. Overall, it will be a long time before I return to this restaurant, sad because they have great food.
We arrived at our reservation time and had to wait 20 mins. The hostess took another couple to their table who just walked in the door. She apologized for it but they need a better system.
Always an excellent evening at Vito. I was craving their Sanddabs and luckily we were able to get a same day reservation. I miss dining inside but they have set it up outside in the valet parking area and it works. Raymondo was our server this time and he was fantastic. Look forward to my next dining experience at Vito.
Delicious food and great service!
