Success! Thanks for posting your review of Vito's Italian Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Absolutely the best!

Vito's is simply my favorite restaurant in LA! I stumbled upon this Italian restaurant about 2 years ago when I moved to LA, and I haven't found a better Italian place yet. Two things make Vito's the best: 1) The food is incredible. I highly suggest giving some menu items a try that you normally wouldn't. Vito's is one of those places where you can fall in love with a dish (baked Rigatoni!), and never want to ord... view more

The food and service is fabulous. Have visited many times and always have been impressed with the quality of food and service provided. The best cesar salad in town!

Not A Party

I hosted a party for a small group of friends and I have to say the food was mediocre and the service was\r on the poor side. I ordered the fish, sand dabs and it was so over salty I could barely eat it. Also the pasta was over done. Another negative... the bathroom was not clean. yuck

Lunch is outstanding!

I used to work across the street and often visited Vito's for lunch. They also have a fun Happy Hour which I frequented with friends. This is an old school Italian place. The owner is Italian, and takes pride on the food an service provided. On a couple of unusual evenings, most of the guests looked like they were out of an episode of the Sopranos. I won't say any more about that except that if the food was good enou... view more

BEST Italian food in town!

Very traditional and old fashioned Italian restaurant. I loved the romantic ambiance. The food is absolutely delicious and they have a really extensive wine list. I go there at least twice a month! I?d highly recommend it, but make sure to make reservations!

My favorite Italian in L.A!

Never had a bad meal here. I celebrate every special occasion here in a comfortable booth and/or had many a plate of pasta and vino at the bar watching Laker games with the bartender ! The staff is the best-totally old school and being a VIP yields amazing deals. Try the chicken a limone, the daily fish specials and the veal piccatta. Start with the capriciossa salad or the made-at-your table caesar. ALL of their des... view more

Funny staff and good to great food!

Vito's is what you get when you cross a stereotypical snobby high-end restaurant with Americanized Italian. It's much more fun than that. Our waiter was a riot, yelling at the other waiters and clapping his hands together like you see in 1940s movies. The food has been a tad inconsistent from the several times I've been here. The Spagetti Della Casa is too rich; overpowering and so thick that it tastes almost bland. ... view more

Excellent heart Italian

I've been here probably 5 times, each time with a largish group, and never been disappointed with anything. The pastas are very flavorful and inventive. My favorite is the mixed seafood house specialty. They have this amazing appetizer, I think it's called posillipo, that's calimari served in a very unique way: not friend, and in an amazing tomato sauce. It's almost like a room temperature soup. I'm getting hung... view more

Best Lasagna in LA plus friendly service

Everything Ive had at Vito's has been extraordinary. My favorite is the lasagna as the sauce is the perfect color and texture, not to mention taste. Another plus is Vito's believes in quality not quantity. Unlike most Italian food restaurants they don't give you a massive sized dish, but enough for one person to be satisfied. The focus seems to be on the quality of the ingredients instead of how much food they ca... view more
