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.

If your staying miles south of Charlottesville there aren't many eating options open to you. Vito's is about 40 miles south and, in that area, is one of best there is. That said, it isn't so great. Too much garlic in the meat dish; too much cream in the al fredo pasta and not much satisfaction in the wine. Principal... More

Vito's is one of the closest places open in the evenings to grab dinner while staying at Harmony Hill Bed and Breakfast. The food is good and reasonably priced. Overall service was good in spite of the place being busy. Certainly worth a try if you're in the area.

Many locals, including the sheriff, were eating there on the night we went. The pizza was good and the cannoli was excellent.

Truly a New York/Italian flavor. Thin crust pizza, cheesy meatball subs. The staff is pleasant and fast. Huge menu. Try the calamari. Fabulous!
