I normally don't get too excited about Italian restaurants or pizzerias, but this place is definitely worth checking out if you are in the area. It has a nice mom-and-pop feel and appears to be very popular with the locals. The service was excellent and...More

Staying at the Orchard House Bed and Breakfast and we were looking for somewhere close for takeout. The owners recommended Vito's - and we weren't disappointed. The pizza was delicious and the crust to die for and very reasonably priced. A definite hit!

Vito's is a small, family-owned restaurant that serves tasty Italian. I love it. My favorite is pizza but I also love their salad (I always ask for mozzarella cheese to be added and they're happy to oblige!).

Great for quick bite after the ride to our location. We actually took some food back to the B&B and sat outside around the fire pit.
