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.

Always an enjoyable experience due to the consistently good cuisine and attentive service. Also the ambiance is special -- Vito's is located in a park-like setting and
the restaurant interior is very well done.

It was our visit here, and we will return. The food was very good, my husband had the veal marsala, I had a filet mignon, both were cooked to perfection. We were both looking forward to the chocolate mouse, it was good but not as light and airy as we would have liked. The restaurant is on the casual side, some tables had tablecloths, some did not, which was strange. The servers and staff were friendly and efficient. On whole, a very enjoyable experience. We can't wait to try other dishes on their interesting menu.
