I think I might have caught them on a night when they were too slow to do anything better than average. They seemed to know what they were doing and the food was ok, just not as good as some of the other Vito's I've been to. Service was ok but not great. Parking was pretty easy right outside (usually... More

Always great service and good food prepared by awesome chef's. My mother and I went here during a cold evening as a little treat for ourselves. We had the blackened salmon with a sweet potato puree with a caesar salad. Talk about amazing, if you are looking for something to try on a cold day come check it out.

Last night, my boyfriend and I had the most wonderful time at Vito's by the Park. We had said in our OpenTable reservation that it was our anniversary and the staff was more than accommodating. The restaurant just had a huge crowd leave so it was nice and quiet. Our server was attentive and brought over an amuse compliments of... More

We went there last night for dinner and the food was great. I'm eating my leftovers now, getting to enjoy it again. Our server, Antoinette (so?) was also very good and had made our dinner that much more enjoyable. I'm looking forward to returning.

The service was great and so was the food. The waitress asked if we were going to or from a show and was attentive to the time we had to leave. It is also conveniently located.

Excellent food and service ! Went here to eat before a play at the Bushnell and had the shrimp and scallops risotto with sweet pea puree. My boyfriend had the vela parm. Both meals were amazing. I would recommend to anyone in the area

Can't really review the food because we did not stay. I was so disappointed having read great reviews on Trip Advisor it sounded like a wonderful place. We got there at 5:30 on a Wednesday and there was only one other table occupied. The restaurant is very big but felt so empty and Univision. It is also very run down.... More

Classic Italian fare along with innovative and interesting specials await the expectant diner. Always good, and often great, Vito's is not likely to disappoint. I know, I've eaten there often as I live in close proximity to the restaurant. Equally important, an informed and experienced waitstaff are there to serve you. Bottom line: Go there. You won't be disappointed.
