My wife and I tried this small restaurant out. We each had the cappellini (the waitress did not know what it was) with their vodka sauce. The sauce was interesting and tasty but not "spicy" as we were told. The salad was very mundane with iceberg lettuce, a couple of pieces of onion and a small tomato slice. The shredded... More

Authentic ITALIAN CUISINE. Friendly and cozy atmosphere. Excellent service, nice list of wines and the bread is really baked to perfection. Pasta, seafood, desserts, you name it, delicious, accentuated flavors with the right seasoning you will enjoy every bite of your meal, portions are the right size and not expensive. If attending Solo with friends and/or with family it will... More

Tucked away in a strip mall on south Meridian Street sits an excellent Italian Restaurant! Our group made a last minute call to Vito's and they were able to accommodate 14 of us. The service was excellent and food was as well! I had the spaghetti and meatballs and the sauce was good and the meatballs very well prepared. Being... More

Hungry? Won't be after visiting this family run Italian restaurant. My only complaint, there was too much food. Traditional Italian dishes served up in huge portions. Food quality is above average. Staff was very helpful.

Went on a Saturday evening, 6 pm, with a group of 6, four of which have eaten here several times. Located in a small strip mall, there is plenty of parking. There were quite a few people waiting, our wait being about 15 minutes. We were waited on (for drink orders) right away after being seated. After our food orders,... More

The vodka sauce is excellent. We tried the pizza for the first time and it was very tasty. The sauce is thicker than your typical pizza sauce and the toppings were nicely diced. The seating is limited so I suggest an early dinner or be prepared to wait. Every dish brought out from the kitchen looked good.

For a hole in the wall restaurant that's always busy it would be refreshing to see them update the tired decor. At least replace the soiled ceiling tiles and update the bad restrooms. Our server Dan was awesome. In our many visits never had a bad server. They go out of the way to please. Food is not fancy and... More

Excellent Italian restaurant, with great service. Every dish we've had has been cooked and seasoned perfectly. It's located in a strip mall behind a filling station, so it's a little hard for non-locals to find.

This is a frequent spot for us and our regular dining companions. Always nice to sit it back room where it's quieter and tables are greater spaced for some privacy. Place is rather tired looking inside and not very upscale but clean and respectful. Bathroom is dingy so go before you come to eat. They have a great house merlot.... More

Vito Provolone's is definitely better than your typical chain Italian restaurants (Olive Garden, Buca di Beppo, etc.), but it is not the best Italian food that I have ever had. For Indy, I prefer Milano Inn but Vito's is not a bad choice if you want true Italian food. The service is always friendly, the taste is authentic, and the... More
