We love this place. Second year in a row that we went for my husband’s birthday
Great food, service. I love this place!
Amazing classic Italian menu. You’ll know you made the right choice as soon as they deliver the bread basket.
Waited an hour for reservation to be honored. Fun place. AMAZING wine list.
The food and service are excellent. Fast in and out. It’s not a place to dine. Go to bar first for drinks.
Always terrific! We love Vitos! Service, great Italian food
Vito is always a good time. The food is delicious as are the cocktails.
Vito has been a mainstay in Santa Monica for I don't know how long. And, I'm happy to report, it's still as count-onable as ever. A lot of places that have been around for as long as Vito often rest on their laurels, or start to disappoint in ever-increasing ways. Not this place. We met friends for a business lunch and the food was perfect - proportioned right, tasty, delightful. The service was also top-notch, as it always has been. So glad that some things just keep on going no matter what, and Vito is one of them.
We come from Woodland Hills to meet friends her for dinner regularly. Food is always excellent.
Love the table side Caesar salad with anchovies.
We've been to Vito many times and it's always very special. Our most recent visit was no
exception. The service and food was exceptional.
Vito's NEVER DISAPPOINTS, food great, wait service fabulous theirtableside Caesar salad an art , our favorite restaurant by far. Our out of town guests were extremely pleased.
My friend and I came here once before and the service was awful so we never went back. Although the food was authentic and outstanding. Some reason we decided to give it another try hoping waiters would be in a better mood. To our surprise, we had such wonderful experience! Service was outstanding. We live down the street from this restaurant, needless to say, we will definitely be coming back more often. One of our favorite restaurants. It’s a gem.
At Vito Restaurant you can always expect great Italian food served "the old fashioned way," with attentive waiters making caesar salad table side. The food is consistently good and the desserts are something special. It's hard to choose when they roll the dessert cart up to your table (I love the cheesecake). We have been going to Vito for more than 30 years and have NEVER been disappointed. I rate their bolognese sauce as one of the best that I have ever had. Though almost always available, they list the sand dabs as a "special"-- maybe because they are something special. My wife doesn't eat meat (fish, yes) and there is a varied menu to meet her needs.
We've been going to Vito for years . . . and often host large-group dinners which are always a huge success. The food is excellent, the portions are generous, and the service is always incredible. I highly recommend the Cesar salad, the fried mozzarella (always a must for us), pasta with veal meatballs, the veal parm, the steak with veggies or pasta, the rack of lamb (special), and the pasta della casa (shrimp in light red sauce). I'm sure other items are delicious, but these are my tried and true favorites. I would eat here once a week if I could. The food is so comforting and it feels like family (you know, family that you like). And it's not a problem if you've got a vegetarian in your group - they'll definitely be able to find a great pasta they'll love. 100% recommend!
Happy hour at the bar is a fantastic deal! The bartenders are friendly and helpful, service is quick and the food is delicious. Great neighborhood spot with classic old school Italian ambiance. Perfect for a casual date night at the bar, or a special occasion in the dining room.
Our waiter / general manager was great and being from the other side of the country himself Boston !!! we were treated extra special !! 🙂
Food was great along with the dessert!
Reminded us of the north end in Boston!
True Italian !
We asked to sit a quiet area and they provided a great table. The food was excellent as always.
We love Vito’s! It’s a family favorite for old-school (in a good way) Italian!
Vito is always delivers a great time. The ingredients and the food are consistently excellent. Drinks are generous. The service and the servers are great. The prices are fair and reasonable. The place is friendly and a true gem. It is always busy for a reason: It is great.
Food was great and my "foody" son said he would be glad to come back.
Old style authentic Italian restaurant with waiters in tuxedos, great menu and wine list. A little crowded and the place was hustling the night we dined. A very pleasant experience.
Very good. Cessation salad must be highlife of meal. Made fresh at the table to perfection. Pasta dishes I really enjoyed. Parking easy
Consistently great. Food is fresh and delicious and the service is impeccable.
Sublime. Perfect. Delicious. Consistently top notch service and food. Servers are pros and are friendly and warm. Food is always amazing. Must go.
We always enjoy dining here. Service is friendly and consistent as is the food. There's something about dining at Vito that is unique, you almost feel like you're back East , there's a cool retro vibe that we really appreciate. The cocktails are always enjoyable and reasonably priced. Overall, we just love it.
30 year neighborhood gem. always bustling with regulars and fabulous westsiders who love to talk across booths. a rare and wonderful treat of a restart with waiters in tuxes but make you feel just as comfortable in jeans or suits & ties. one of our favorites.
My favorite classic Italian spot in Santa Monica. Old school with amazing food.
Wonderful! Love this place!
One of my favorite places to dine. I never tire of Vito’s. It’s a special place with great food and great service.
There was a confusion with the booking, which left us a bit uncomfortable...for the most part
service was good, though the tendency is to leave customer alone for a while, and one has to be
asking for things...my my vitello was a bit burned and dry, vegggies are rather scarce...
we still like Vito's, keep coming back.
Everything was beyond our wildest expectation! Ambience, service, presentation, drinks, and were flawless!!!
Service made you feel like an honored guest. We can’t wait to come back.
Very good. Cesar salad outstanding dinner Parma very good. Parking easy
Vito was recommended by a friend. Glad to have my birthday dinner at Vito. I enjoyed whole experience from the start. Seated at the window, service and food were excellent. Can't go wrong with seafood, meat, pasta, wine or dessert. Great choice!
Never disappointed at our favorite neighborhood restaurant! Great place!
We tried many items off the menu and all were simply amazing. Definitely do not leave without trying the Medaglioni al Cognac! Roberto and his staff are fun an know their stuff!
We love the food and service. Ambiance is good too.
Excellent as always. The service and the old world charm
Lovely neighborhood place. We've been going to Vito for years, and enjoy meeting friends there. Everything was great, except the noise level. Glad business was so good on a Tuesday night, but it really was NOISY.
