A good Italian restaurant with a full menu of pasta choices, pizza, sandwiches and salads. My salmon was delicious, and my husband enjoyed his manicotti. We visited on a Sunday night and there were plenty of local customers, plus a steady take-out pizza business. Flat screen TVs in the two dining rooms were on, and the dining room was a... More

The restaurant is a small venue with not a lot of seating. I found it loud and a bit overwelming. The venue was very warm as well. The food is average for a family owned business.

Vito's has great pizza. They also make sandwiches that are very good. My favorite is the meatball Parmesan.

So much for the New Year's Resolutions! Oh, well!! I get the seafood platter every time, even though I should not be eating a huge plate of fried cod, oysters and shrimp. But it is so delicious! The guys always order a large pizza to split and it is also consistently YUMMY. Always friendly staff and house glass of wine?... More

We're blessed to have this option in Nelson. Great food and waitstaff. And the regular menu still holds good surprises like terrific pasta with meat sauce and meatballs.

What a great place! The guys shared a large pizza and I had a mixed seafood platter that was DEE-LISH!! Lovely service staff, pretty restaurant, easy parking, good value and a reasonable wine list to go with the entree selection. Definitely going back.
