We love Vito and have never had a bad meal there. The atmosphere is old world and perfect.
When we have holidays or birthdays we always think of Vito.
Good for families, good food, good desserts. Bread is unbelievable
I have been a patron for many years and always love the food!
Excellent Italian food and a great value. A little out of the way but well worth the trip.
I hate to tell you how much we love every visit to Vito for fear that the restaurant will become more crowded and popular. Get the Ceasar salad.
A great date night! Old School dining experience at its finest!
Phenomenal restaurant! If you want real Italian food at it's finest, look no further. The gnocchi sorrentino with Bolognese sauce is to die for, and if you're there on the right night, you can add some of their amazing veal meatballs! Great wine selection, Fantastic desserts, and wonderful service. One of my favorite restaurants in LA!!
Always so so good! I love the gnocchi, carbonara, de la casa and Caesar salad!
Vito is a traditional Italian restaurant with many good menu items and specials that are not commonly found currently (such as traditional Sand Dabs). Food preparation and presentation is very average and portion sizes are modest particularly considering the price. Service can best be described as "inelegant" with wait staff and others generally seeming rushed. For the price, there are many better options available with far better food quality and service.
When we go see a show at McCabe's, we love to eat near it. Valentino's was our go to place. Good Italian food and very close by. With Valentino's gone, I went searching for another restaurant and found Vito's, less than a mile away. The food was excellent, the service very good and the wine was delicious. The price is a bit high, but you really can't complain when the food was that good. My wife's salmon was some of the best she's ever had. My spaghetti della casa was really tasty and I could have spent the evening just eating out of the bread basket. We will be back.
Fabulous food and great service! Moved to the top of our list of best Italian restaurants!
Vito’s is a classic and it’s all class. It’s pricey yes, but the food is presented and composed with excellence. If you want a traditional, hit it out of the park Italian meal with old school waiters and dining room, it doesn’t get better than Vito’s.
Vito's is the most authentic "old school" Italian restaurant in the Westside. Excellent long-time waiters and terrific food and drinks. It never disappoints.
Our waiter was attentive when we first arrived, however, once he had delivered our drinks and we asked for a little more time to order, he disappeared. We had to ask a bus boy to find him. It was too noisy in the room whee we were. The back is more quiet. I should have asked for a table there.
We were visiting from out of town and just wanted some good Italian food. We found this restaurant on Open Table and decided to give it a try after reading several positive reviews. Our dinner was outstanding. The food was delicious and the service was attentive. We really enjoyed the quaint atmosphere. It was busy and close quarters, but it worked out nicely. We were glad that we took a chance on this place.
Very nice CLASSIC Italian restaurant. Went for Mother's Day so that impacted the experience. They added tables so it was crowded and it was quite loud. We felt rushed by the waiter who was otherwise fine. Appetizers and dessert were best and the main course was fine, but nothing to rave about.
Our waiter was not really very good. He initially pushy to get orders and then was not very attentive...don’t think we’d go back there
Amazing service excellent food!! We are never disappointed when we eat at Vito’s
Food and service great. Fabulous old school upscale Italian restaurant.
First time back in many years. Food was good. Asked for quiet table but I don't think they exist. Very hard to hear, especially hearing impaired patrons. Pricey too.
the food is great, prompt service,staff attentive,
Ive been going to Vitos for 15+ years, maybe more... Waiters are the best...food is always good, but this last time the veal marsala meat was so thin, it was more of a shaved lunch meat... Come on vitos, thats beneath you... Tasted great as usual but was more of an appetizer quantity, not dinner... Had to pick up a thai entre on the way home...
The food could be better. Barcode sticker was not removed from vinegar
My guest arrive before my husband and I. The original seats were inside but cramped. We were relocated outside to the patio area, which had more room. It was a nice day in Santa Monica. The customer service was excellent. The waiter and staff were very attentive. The waiter had a great sense of humor. Everything was perfect for my husband 65th birthday. My friends really enjoyed themselves and said they would return. They were very impressed. I have one friend who is usually particular with her food, even at the restaurant she pick for her and her husband birthday and anniversary. She did not return her food. I was shocked. This was great.
We have been going to Vito for years and still consider it to be one of the finest Italian restaurants in Southern California. The staff is friendly and most of the waiters have been there for years.
Great ambience & service Edith food reminiscent of my stay in Italy years ago. Perfect for date nights!
FOOD IS ALWAYS GOOD BUT SERVICE COULD BE MORE ATTENTIVE.
One of our very favorite places. The service is amazing and the food is delicious! The noise level allows conversation. We love it!!!
The food was good but not excellent. It was nice that the dishes were individually prepared and food/ingredient preferences could be accommodated. We specifically requested a quiet table. Thiis request was ignored as we were seated in a very noisy room. There was a nearby customer who was on his cellphone all during our dinner. His speaker was on loud during his conversations. The restaurant personel could have asked him to use his cell phone outside the dining room but didn’t. It ruined our dining experience.
The room I was seated in has a very stale smell - perhaps carpet is old and needs changing but the smell was very noticeable. I won't sit in that room again but I will be back to Vito's as the food is very good.
The food is good. However the portion of the veal is small for the price.
The service is not good despite the tuxedo wearing waiters. I would not recommend dining in. I think the service really brings down the experience of the place.
Vito is our neighborhood restaurant. We love going there. The food is fabulous and the ambiance is romantic. We usually have Hank as our waiter. He is terrific! Very knowledgeable about the menu, specials and wines. He is very interested in making sure that our dining experience at Vito is excellent. And it always is!
Dinner with great friends
I've eaten all over the world and in Italy. Vito's cast a long shadow as one of the best in the country.
The calamari was delicious. The salmon and sand dabs were superb.
Unfortunately this restaurant doesn't know how to treat its guests. The wait staff constantly interrupted the table during conversations, during toasts, intimate conversations, etc.. for the most marginal of issues, taking ones order or informing us of specials is one thing, but this went way beyond, When the food was brought out the runner did not know whose food belonged to who, our waiter was not in sight to guide him, so he shouted loudly at all of us to see what dish went were, it was amateurish. The food was not at all top quality, which if at least that was good we would give them another shot, but alas it was poor, I won't bore you with the small details about each dish, just stay away.
Dependable quality. Excellent service.
Dependable old style Italian with attentive tuxedoed waiters, and tableside Caesar salads. Warm, inviting g, comfortable. You feel like Frank and Dean-O will walk in any minute.
VITO is my favorite restaurant. Truly! The food is amazing, the service is personal and attentive, and everything is consistently great every time I go! Recommend highly.
