We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It was delicious. The decor was beautiful, the waitstaff was helpful. We ordered the ravioli with meat sauce, a waiter recommendation. Also, the linguini with clam sauce and my husband had the frutti de mar, which was seafood over pasta, perfectly herbed and cooked. We had an amazing eating experience.

Thank Lisa H

this restaurant is 0.5 miles from the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, walking distance. The food was quite bland but the service was good. I had the large veal parmesan the tomato sauce tasted like it came out of jar, the vegetables were laoded with parmesan cheese, and the pasta was kind of raw, not even close to al-dente. I had an apple cobbler for desert (the waiter highly recommend it). Not sure condiment or food category was used to sprinkle on the cobbler but it tasted sort of a mix of Captain Crunch Cereal and Special K. The apple cobbler was boiling hot, and the 1/2 scoop of ice cream on top was not enough to prevent me from burning my mouth.

Lido,

I'm sorry to hear that you were less than satisfied with you food here at Vito's Trattoria. Since you were wondering, the topping we use on the Apple Crisp is Whole Oats with a mixture of butter. If the pasta was way undercooked, well...that's a complete mistake on our part and I do apologize. If you had mentioned that to us while you were here we would have gladly corrected it. I am puzzled about your mention of the Veggies being "loaded with parmesean" since we don't put parm on our veggies. Just so you know our sauce does not come out of a jar. It just didn't suit your taste and I can accept that.

As I tell customers that review my restaurant, I thank you for taking the time do do so. I'll take the good with the bad and hope that the good highly outweigh the bad.

This place was recommended by the hotel, and I was eating alone(the kids had an event) so I thought I'd check it out. Odd location(strip-ish mall in a business park) but...wow. Very old school feeling, older men servers, small wine glasses,etc. I rarely ever order pasta dishes when I eat out, but was craving lasagna. My mom made a pretty darn good lasagna and I'm always disappointed when I eat it out. However, it came out HOT, and...I was horribly disappointed I could not finish the whole plate! I took my leftover back to the room, but had no where to reheat...almost cried when I threw out the uneaten portion.
If you love flavorful red sauce, not like something they pulled out of a can...check this place out. Service was excellent, prices find, wine reasonable. I will definitely hit this place again next time I 'm in the area!

Vito's was a short walk from my hotel and a welcome find on my first night in town. The service was exceptional, warm, friendly, and attentive. The menu was filled with no end of wonderful options. The classic bolognese sauce over linguini was perfect. The servings were generous. Their wine list was grand. Salute!

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!
