“Close to hotel and worth it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Found this restaurant near our hotel and the food was great. The menu is big with a lot to choose from and the portions are big, shame would could not take it on the airplane the next day. Service was good, there were a few big parties in the back, so it was a little noisy. Great find!

“A pleasant surprise close to the hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

We were staying in SJC in preparation for a flight west the next day. Our hotel recommended Vito's and they steered us right. The dishes (shrimp scampi and osso bucco as mains) we had were well prepared, service was attentive without being oppressive. It was a little noisy, but we could still hold a conversation without shouting.

“Service and Food Great!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

WE are staying near the airport and wanted a good meal before a flight. What a great surprise! The menu was great, the food was too and the service by Christopher was memorable. The food was 4 stars and the service was 6 stars! We had spaghetti Bolognese, eggplant parmesan and veal piccata that was very good! Salad was excellent and the wine was reasonable and portions large. The only thing missing was the wheel barrow to carry us out of the place! Thanks for a great evening. All restaurants should have a "Christopher on their staff!

“Great family owned restaurant with huge menu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

What's not to love about Vito's? The menu is extensive, serving up anything and everything relating to traditional Italian cooking. The portions are large and tasty, plus the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The owner is there almost every night, and his son tends bar too! They are a great Italian family that puts lots of love into their food. This place is a must try!

“Dinner was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Still in SJO for a few weeks and needed a place close to work for dinner. Ordered the Veal Parm and Salad. The service was fast (but it was early and the place was pretty empty). The bread was very good but only served 3 pieces with no offer of a refill. The salad was next, limp greens not vert appetizing. The veal, for which I had high expectations, was Ok it tasted fine but the veal was obviously not previously frozen as betrayed by it's grey coloration. I guess I was expectinb better for the price. The vegi were perfectyl cooked and the highllight of the meal, The pasta was passable but the marinara sauce was on the bland side. I expected more for the cost. There are better places to eat for the money, dinner, 1 beer and an ice tea $45 including tip
