The food is wonderful. Staff were attentive. It quiet enough so that it was easy to carry on a conversation with the other couple we dined with. Highly recommend..

Vittorio's is our go-to neighborhood place (Including when we have out of town guests). They are 100% reliable; seating is quick (we aways make reservations on Open Table), the host is VERY welcoming, the waiters are gorgeous, friendly and professional, the food is DELICIOUS and portion sizes are big enough for leftovers (if you can restrain yourself!). I always get the Salad Mediterranean and the Salmone Amalfitana; my husband loves their pasta dishes and they have an excellent wine list. Don't be put off by their location in a shopping mall (Highlands Village in this case) -the restaurant is gorgeous.

Very disorganized, especially because they weren’t very busy. Our opinion is that there are better local alternatives with better food and service.

This is our local Italian restaurant just 3 minutes from home so after a tiring few days of helping our daughter move into a new house my husband and I went to celebrate my birthday. It was reasonably quiet being a Monday evening but there were enough tables occupied so that we didn't feel lonely. Our waiter told us that wine by the bottle was half price on a Monday so that was a nice surprise. We shared a large portion of Paperadelle with a Beef ragu sauce which was excellent and had enough left over to take a portion home. We also split a piece of Tiramasu for dessert which came with a birthday candle and was complimentary. Good food at a reasonable price and you are made to feel welcome.

A great neighborhood restaurant with surprisingly good food and lot of choice. I say surprisingly because you don’t expect such food from a reasonably priced shopping center located place.

very nice selection of entrees. ample portion, very nice overall. this place calls itself family style but i feel it is more of a fine dining establishment. my only issue was the bread; i dont understand why every italian restaurant does not offer the fine breads and rolls from gibaldis on india street.

We took my 99 year old mother to Vittorio's for Mother's Day. The staff was very personable and helpful. Our server was attentive to our Mom's allergy to thyme and suggested a less expensive bottle of wine which was excellent. Our food was delicious with servings that were appropriate. We indulged in dessert and though the server suggested splitting the cannoli, we insisted on our own servings. Guess what got boxed up? I think the best way to sum our experience up was when Mom asked, "Can we come back here?"

Vittorio's is our go-to neighborhood dining choice. Whether it's for a casual meal or a special occasion, we know that we'll get fantastic food, absolutely 5 star service and a comfortable check at the end of the evening. I love their Mediterranean salad; the vegetables are always fresh and crispy, the portion is HUGE (could easily be split) and the dressing SO delicious. If I don't order one of their specials, I'll always get the Salmone Amalfitana - tender, juicy salmon in a marinara sauce that is beyond satisfying. We LOVE the waiters at Vittorio's - each has a ton of personality - and since most of them are Italian, you feel like you're in Italy if only for a couple of hours. The wine choices are excellent, too. A terrific dining experience.
