We discovered this lovely restaurant when we flew out of the San Jose airport several months ago and enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again, this time with friends. The staff is very friendly and efficient, which makes the evening particularly enjoyable. The food is exactly what I want from an Italian restaurant: delicious and well presented. I love their lasagna, but this time I decided to have their walnut-crusted Chilean sea bass special, which was excellent. It was served with grilled asparagus and a cheesy risotto. I couldn't have been happier.

I only wish this place was not a 2.5-hour drive for us so we could enjoy it more often. This will be our go-to restaurant whenever we are in San Jose. I highly recommend it for anyone visiting the area.

We first dined at Vito's in May, 2021. It is the first restaurant where we dined indoors since Mar. 15, 2020, just before the pandemic shutdown. We tried it initially based on reviews and because it had reservations available on a Saturday. Fortunately it turned out that the restaurant is excellent. I had not had pasta that good in a long time. Out second experience on the night before Halloween 2021 was also excellent. Both times the food was great, the service friendly, and the ambience pleasant. Their outdoor area is heated by kerosene lamps, covered by a tent, and very comfortable.

The food at this restaurant is outstanding. The service is very good and the owner George makes you feel right at home. They have a full bar and a good selection wines. The menu has traditional pasta as well as salads and a daily special. There is something for everyone on this menu. I highly recommend the minestrone soup. Also, don't be shy- ask for the bread basket if you want some free bread-but don't eat too much or you'll ruin your appetite. The bruschetta is to die for.

The food at Vito's is prepared well and is very tasty, you can tell they uses good quality ingredients. It is Italian - American style restaurant and they have a nice variety of offerings including fish, chicken, veal and beef and pasta. They have a
great selection of appetizers and desserts too.

The wait staff is prompt and courteous but we never felt rushed. We saw diners of all ages enjoying their meals and drinks in the very nicely decorated surroundings. They have a full bar and and offer very nice wine selection.

This is not an diner or fast food restaurant, but they do have selections in many price ranges. I selected their most expensive steak and it cost far less than many other comparable restaurants in San Jose.

My food was delicious and cooked just as I ordered it. It is nice to find a place that still treats you like a guest. I really enjoyed my dinner at Vito's and plan to go back soon.

We have eaten at Vito's Trattoria a number of times and the food and service are always very good. It can get busy at times, but the restaurant is well organized and service is up to the challenge. The owner or his son are always on hand to make sure the customers get the kind of experience they expect and deserve. We look forward to dining there again soon.

Classic Italian food and ambience. Very friendly staff, efficient service. I had cheese ravioli w/ marinara sauce - my only complaint is that that ravioli seemed a tad overcooked and the sauce didn't feel totally authentic and fresh. It was tasty, but I've had more authentic sauce elsewhere.

But, husband and son were totally happy w/ their dishes so overall, a good experience and I would go back.

There were 4 of us and we enjoyed our appetizer sampler plate as well as our dinners. We all ordered a veal dish, all fixed differently and we all enjoyed our entree. Our waiter was very attentive but not pesty, fun to talk to and was very helpful.
