Service was ok but food was lacking flavor. Décor out of the 80's. Worst part is it was impossible to find a parking space. Another boring Daytona restaurant.

Dearest Carrie – Quite honestly I found your review to be Juvenile and seriously lacking any helpful detail. I also hope you're aware that there is an age requirement of 13 to write reviews. What did you eat that lacked flavor? Pretty important fact for others and usually the main reason for a review!! WHY, after finding it impossible to... More

It's clear that this restaurant survives by word of mouth based on its food alone. The salad with cream homemade Italian dressing was delicious. The garlic knots were good, but could use more garlic flavor. The chicken parmigiana? Wow...so good. I ate all of it and the portion was gigantic. That goes for the lasagna portion as well. The canolis... More

Family owned and operated and I felt like family sitting in the restaurant. The food is excellent and they do serve beer and wine. We were there Friday night 6 p.m. and all the tables were either filled or had reserved signs on them , you definitely need to make reservations.

Based on the rating of this restaurant, we thought we would try it. Big mistake. The taste of the food was nothing like Italian that I'm used to in a good Italian restaurant. Portion sizes overstated on menu and marinara sauce was very bland. Received our bread cold long after we received our meal. Had to wait at least a... More

Dear Marsha – You have our most sincere apology for the wait you experienced but, It is also my belief that the wait you experienced influenced your rating of the restaurant. As stated I can only apologize for the delay but, cannot agree with your food quality assessments which run contrary to most. Both of you seemed extremely nice and... More

This is the best Italian you will find in Daytona Beach! The pizza is awesome and the veal Parmesan is to die for. The staff is extremely friendly and will make you feel welcome right away. Definitely worth a try if you're in the area.

The lasagna was like mush. The mussels were way past fresh (couldn't hardly eat them in the pasta). I have no idea how this restaurant receives good reviews. The paucity of food choices in Daytona Beach must make people desperate for something, anything besides bar food. Well, in this case, bar food is a much better choice than Don Vito's

Dearest Keep Movin Misouri - Wish you had kept movin!! The paucity of your review leaves me breathless. Your review is SO highly different than most reviews we receive that I have to assume you've spent too much time in the Grand Canyon. I noticed you reviewed that location 3 times. I am flattered that we were the first restaurant... More

This was my second visit. The first was with a group of 7 friends, some very particular about their food. Everyone loved it. This visit was just my son and I on Christmas Eve. I had the veal francesa and he had the lasagna. Both were amazing. We ordered limoncello cake and cannoli to go. Perfect As wonderful as the... More

By far the best chicken parmigiana I've ever had! My boyfriend had the spaghetti and said it was just as delicious. The staff are definitely what made the experience for us.They make you feel right at home. If you're in Daytona this is a must try!!!

Family owned and operated, Don Vito's Italian Restaurant is a fantastic establishment that utilizes traditional recipes and comfortable surroundings to provide patrons with, "A Meal YOU Can't Refuse". Using fifth generation recipes passed down from their grandmothers in the kitchen, the owners sons prepare authentic Italian dishes ranging from all of your favorites to some unique creations that you may not have experienced previously, including PIZZA. All of this is served up in a comfortable dining room with black booths, and a number of pieces of Italian art and movie photos on the wall. Located in the quaint Beach Street area directly on International Speedway Blvd. And across the bridge from the beach, Don Vito's is a must-visit Italian restaurant in Daytona for dine in, take out or catering!
