Don t waste your money here. Overpriced and mediocre food at best. Their garden salad is low end and does not even fair to Olive Gardens and the lousy excuse for what they call Italian dressing, really seemed to be an oil and vinegar dressing. Indeed I work very hard for my money like everyone else, but the $14 they charged for cold, tasteless lasagna just added all the more to this poor experience. The dinner bread they also offered, tasted no better than grocery store level quality. Total meal cost was $55.61 and is it too much to ask for value, quality and taste for your money these days? Or have we just become complacent and expect nothing better?
The wait-staff was above friendly and very gracious in thanking you on your way out, which was worthy of at least one star. However, this does not make up for the poor quality of the food.
Sorry Vito s, but I have simply started expecting more for my money and you failed to deliver. Your aged menu selection and poor quality is one reason I won t be back.
I am new to the area and I decided to try Vito's after some friends of mine recommended it. I have to say I had an excellent experience. I started out with the calamari and it was great. I then had the special which was seafood lasagna and there was a generous amount of seafood in the dish for the price, not to say the sauce on top was there famous sunrise sauce which was great also. I then finished the meal with there new Cookies and Cream dessert which is a 1/2 baked cookie with ice cream on top. Not only was the food good but the service was excellent and the staff was very friendly.
Vito's Pizza Place is very over rated and expensive. Vito's does not even come close to any of the great pizza restaurants in the country. We ordered the 14 inch thin crust cheese and sausage pizza. The crust tasted stale and soggy. The cheese and toppings were almost non-existent. This bad pizza cost $18.00 for take out. I give Vito's a poor rating.
I have been to Vito's several times due to my husband likes the pizza there. Well, being an Italian from the inner city of Chicago and being exposed to good Italian Restaraunts and home cooking, thumbs down to Vito's. The prices are outrageous and what you get on the plate is a big disappointment, along with their usiual bad service. You'd think that they'd have a salad, bread, and a scoop of ice cream along with the dinner since Vito's charges $15 per plate. I can feed 3 people for 3 days on that price and my cooking is better. I had ordered the eggplant parmsian and it was like shoe leather. The chef needs to cook the eggplant first. As far as the lasagna, this is another dish I do better at home. Get the picture. This restaurant is a waste of time. Wildflower Bread Company has better pasta. It is unique and less expensive.
Heading into Vito's, I had big expectations after reading a few reviews. I am not a big fan of chain restaurants and always love experiencing the local cuisine. It was one of those restaurants I pass everyday and had always wanted to stop and give it a shot. Now, I can't knock the pizza since I haven't had it, however, I can speak to the linguini with clams in white wine sauce and the chicken fettuccini alfredo. Both were to say the least, unimpressive. The clams were fresh from the can and the sauce just didn't have anything in the way of flavor. Texture of the pasta reminded me of reheating left overs. The fettuccini alfredo was about the same. It had a little bit of flavor but it all seemed to run together. Also, as minor as it sounds, send some bread/oil/vinegar out before the main course arrives, it’s a small gesture but goes a long way. We did have Calamari as an appetizer which was good. The batter was nice and light but it tasted like the cooking oil had been used a few too many time. Knock the review as you may, but I am a VERY low maintenance diner who has still never sent ANYTHING back to the kitchen, but after that $50 meal, the thought did cross my mind….
On the scale of 1 to 10 I would give the pizza a 6. Not bad, but not the best I've ever had. The thing that really disturbed me was that for a large, thin-crust with sausage, mushroom and onion the cost was $26.47 and I picked it up. That's more than I have ever paid for a pizza even back in Chicago where you would expect to get hammered. Well, I guess the cost of petroleum is even affecting pizza.:-)
This is possibly the best Chicago style pizza you will ever eat west of the Mississippi River. We are from Chicago and I will put this pizza up against the best they have to offer in the Windy City. We have been eating this pizza for 20+ years and never have found anything better.
UNBELIEVABLE pizza. My boyfriend and I love, love, love this place. The staff is friendly and efficient, the management really seems to care about your experience there, and the food is magnificent - I don't think I've ever had a better pizza crust!
