ALL OF THE ITALIAN CLASSICS AT VITO'S RESTAURANT


Vito's Restaurant

Heaping portions. Generous glasses of wine. A menu full of signature Italian dishes. Welcome to Vito's Restaurant in Wethersfield, Connecticut.

One of my favorite things about Vito's is the basket of bread at the beginning of each meal. Garlic bread sticks and knots. Customers don't go thirsty. Vito's offers a long list of wines, beer and cocktails. I enjoyed two of their red wine sangria's.

Vito's has specialized in family-style Italian dining since 1978. Their dinner menu is separated by chicken, pasta, veal, eggplant and seafood entrees. Many of them are served with a garden salad AND a side of pasta! See what I mean by family style? Guests often get enough food to bring home and they wouldn't have it any other way. With dishes like fettuccini carbonara, sausage & peppers, lobster ravioli, shrimp & scallops romano filling the menu, it was challenging to figure out what to eat. I settled on a classic: meat lasagna. It was meaty, cheesy and filling, everything a lasagna should be.

There are also several grinders, paninis and pizzas on their menu. They even have Chicago-style stuffed pizzas, which look amazingly tempting. Choose from meat, vegetable or a meat/veggie combo.

This Wethersfield location is the original Vito's restaurant, but they also have locations in Hartford and Windsor. ,
