Vito's Pizzeria offers a menu of authentic Italian fare featuring wood fired pizzas, pastas, sandwiches and salads in a cozy, relaxed atmosphere.
My husband and I went for lunch just last week. Its really nice inside, however they do pack you in pretty tightly. The specials were posted on the board without prices so I asked, and the waiter seemed irritated with me. The sea bass salad special was $ 21.99!! for lunch?? I ended up ordering a Calzone with mushrooms & bacon. It was big, and the stuffing was good, but I found the crust very boring. It was served with a nice marinara sauce though, excellent. My husband ordered Penne with bolognaise and it was delicious. There was too much food, we both brought some home (but they didn't give me my marinara!!), and it was expensive for lunch. Our bill was $ 34 with 1 beer, which is way over our lunch budget but it was pretty busy in there and always is so obviously people like it and are willing to spend the money. I may go back for dinner, but not lunch. I hear the lasagna is excellent.
One of the few restaurants we enjoy going to. I will say one complaint. It seems that Vito enjoys having some friends at his restaurant but watching them swear across the restaurant and act like idiots ( they are well over 50 but act like they never have been out). Vito if you read this you have a good thing going but don't mess it up and scare potential customers and families away with unruly patrons. The last time there the old men in question were sitting at the "table". The round table at front. They were groping girls young enough to be their grandchildren, swearing to the back of the restaurant as shouting your name.
We do enjoy this place Ina city that is relatively filled with crap restaurants. It's one of the few places we will go to but I hope that Mis management doesn't get in the way of something that has potential. We all know it's a busy place but we also know how fast a reputation can spread in this city.
The next visit with this kind of experience will def be our last. We will give the benefit of the doubt. Excellent idea and quaint atmosphere and I found the pizza to be great. For the other reviewer that posted about the expensive sea bad salad. I suggest you try buying a piece of sea bass at a grocery store f you can find it. Sea bass is the lobster of seafood and very expensive as it is on a short list for fish that is not sustainable. So the price for this salad reflects the cost of the fish.
Friends and I went out to Vito;s Pizza. The place was only half full at the time They seemed upset that we did not call ahead to reserve a table ( there were 4 in our party) . Once seathed we had to wait for anyone to take a drink order. Once they did we waited about 5min before our drinks were served. We ordered a Pizza and was sadley disapionted. The place is over priced and the pizza was just a Pizza, nothing special. I think the wait staff must all be new
