Love Vitos always. So glad they brought back table side Ceasar Salas.
Great service, wine and drinks.
Wines by the glass are cheap wines and they charge premium prices. Charge big prices for some bottles too. But food delicious
Restaurant was great. Very old school. Dark wood bar and low lighting .Food was ok. I had the squid and pasta, squid was chewy and no flavor , my friend had the pasta and fish and the pasta was so chewy she sent it back. Service was very good. I’ve been here several times and it was better maybe it was a off nite. Noise level was very echoey, so when we left it was a relief to our ears.
Our family has been enjoying Vito's dinning since my mother found them in 1995. The family has grown up enjoying special occasions there since then. Now her great grandson is enjoying evenings at Vito. Food, Service, ambiance and price are all great.
Vito's is a neighborhood gem. I've been frequenting Vito's for over 30 years and I just love it. the food is delicious and the service impeccable. Please check it out for yourself.
We brought a friend that came in from NYC and he's a foodie. He had the shrimp dish and tried 2 other pasta dishes plus the Caesar salad and loved it all. He is a tough food critic so for him to enjoy the entire meal was a BIG compliment. We love coming to Vito and try to get here at least once every month or two. We sat inside to get the full Italian vibe but we also love the outdoor patio with all the pretty lights and space. See you soon!
It's pricey but very good Italian food. Was craving Capellini alla Checca and theirs was some of the best I've had.
It was lovely going back to Vito after almost 2 years. Many of the same staff were there and recognized us. We sat at a great table and did not feel crowded. The service was a bit slow but that was ok as we had a lot of catching up to do. However, the food, while being good, was not as I remembered. A little too much sauce or oil. But we enjoyed our evening immensely.
I've been going there for years. As usual the food was scrumptious, the servers were friendly, polite and attentive; we ate outside and the tables were positioned so that no one was really over close. Overall I have never been disappointed with anything to do with Vito's Italian Restaurant. Love it, Love it, Love it.
Always great service and food!
Been going there for 40 years parking right across the street indoor and outdoor dining available 👍👍👍
The food and service are great!! The salmon special and all of the pasta dishes are family favorites.
Very good food and OK value. Old school Italian with mi9nimalm atmosphere.
Vito never disappoints
Lovely atmosphere, service was good .Food is always tasty and presented well.
This restaurant is a consistent winner.
We love this restaurant!
Great food incredible service have been going there for years and they've maintained that level of quality
Vito is always a great experience! The food, the service the ambiance always great!
Amazing restaurant. Consistent, delicious, amazing staff, feels like home!!!
What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday. The wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious. I had requested a seating area in the front dining room. We were escorted to a table in the back room that had chairs that were against a wall and not accessible to more than half of our large party. We brought this to the attention of the host, who worked to find a solution for us. Thank you!
We ate outside. I had some guests from out of town. We had the calamari appetizer, , he had a shrimp dish, she had gnochi, and I had lasagna and then we had one order of some lemon cake with white chocolate.. We all enjoyed our meals. For me, the red sauce was a bit too tomato -ey but it was still very good. The ambience was very nice. The only bad thing was that the waiter deferred to the man in our party rather than allowing me to pay for the meal since they were supposed to be my guests but the husband was "old school" and just absolutely would not consider it and beat me to the draw in getting the bill from the waiter. We got there shortly after 5 and it was pretty empty outside and inside but by the time we left after 8, inside was packed and outside was pretty crowded as well. I would definitely return.
Outstanding food and service. It's always a pleasure to enjoy a meal at Vito's!
Our waiter was beyond rude. So uncool for a date night out.
Great martini. Main dishes were ok but not great. $32 for a few very thin slices of veal. Cappuccino was just foamy milk over a cup of coffee. First Italian restaurant I’ve ever been to that doesn’t know how to make a cappuccino. Cannoli was mostly just whipped cream. Another strange fail for an Italian restaurant.
Excellent service and delicious food, will definitely coming back soon!!!!
Delicious entrees and great service. My go to, must go to, Italian restaurant when I am visiting Santa Monica!
Food and service are consistently excellent.
I've been there dozens of times in the last three years with and without guests.
They and I were never disappointed.
Fabulous restaurant, we've been going for years -- but this is the first time for lunch, and sitting outside in their gorgeous patio. Food was perfect, as always. Service attentive and helpful, but never obtrusive. Couldn't have been better!
Vito is always excellent! However, I have been going there for over 30 years and am sad to find on this last visit (my first since the pandemic) that a few special touches I always loved are no longer provided, such as the wonderful garlic toasts served warm and the mandarin oranges in the cream with dessert. These are small things, but they made Vito more special. The food is as great as ever and the service very good.
Very enjoyable and great value. Will be going back soon
I barfed when I got home. That bolognese was no bueno.
My friends and I had an excellent time here. The food was AMAZING and the ambience was perfect. This is our new spot!
Outside patio very nice. Lots of heaters. Peer and staff very friendly. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Excellent service, excellent food and lovely patio setting.
I used to frequent Vito’s many years ago. The ambiance hasn’t changed. The waiters are still dressed in uniform and are very friendly. There was no host so we went outside and seated ourselves. The food we ordered was tasty and big portions. Good value for the money. I will come back again.
It was wonderful! We loved everything! The delicious food, the wonderful service! Everything was perfect!
From the Martinis to the White Chocolate Lemon Cake, everything was delicious and served with style. The Ceasar Salad for two was dressed and sized perfectly to not overwhelm. We split on the pasta specials with sea scallops - divine! This was my first experience with Vito's, but won't be my last!
Great food and time every time
A classis go-to restaurant has nicely pivoted to outdoor dining.
Same great menu, same professional staff.
Do yourself a favor and visit.
Vito's is always a pleasure to dine at. Good food, excellent service, friendly staff. I have been eating at Vito's ever since it opened, and will continue to do so. Often come here with my family to celebrate events. EXCELLENT!
I decided to make reservations for dinner to end the evening with my children for a day at Venice Beach. The location was convent and the kids wanted Italian. Restaurant had great reviews on the food. Upon arriving I noticed we were the only minorities. I also observed I was the only one dining with children. Party of 6 (17,17,12,11,3) We did not receive the same service as the other guest. Once seated we were not offered water immediately like other guests. We also didn’t have one set server so I was found having to ask different serving staff for different things throughout the entire dinner. (extra plate twice, more bread, twice, desert menus 3 times and was never asked if we would like a refill on waters or if everything was to our satisfaction. I spent $164.00 total on dinner. I wrote a note regarding my experience on the back of my ticket. I then left a $10.00 tip in cash and took it to the owner. I advised her I left a note about my experience I would like her to read and told her the reason the tip was only $10.00 is because of the service I received vs the service I witnessed other guest receiving. On the bright side the food was delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant. I enjoy treating my children to dinners at restaurants like this one to practice table educate and different dining experiences. My children are well behaved and even the 3 year old used her inside voice. Train them up and away they shall go and will not part from it.
