Vito's Pizza Place and Ristorante

Date night? Wedding dinner? Prom? Unexpected company? A night out with the family? Your dining experience is Vito’s number one priority! Vito’s Pizza Place and Ristorante is located at Lindsay and McKellips in Mesa and is reasonably priced. There is an authentic Italian dish everyone can enjoy!

I recently had a chance to tour the ristorante with Giselle Moen, event coordinator at Vito’s. She’s delightful!

Vito’s personable, professional staff serves appetizers, soups, salads, imported pasta from Italy, and Chicago Style thin crust pizza, with 42 toppings to chose from!

My personal favorites at Vito’s are Chicken Ceasar Salad and Tortellini Sunrise. Other family favorites are the Baked Ziti and Eggplant Parmigiana served with pasta. All lunches and dinners are served with soft bread and butter. Desserts include Homemade Tiramisu, Cheesecake, Mini Cannoli, and Chocolate or Raspberry Eruption.

Vito’s opened in 1986 and is owned by Tony Vito Carrieri, his wife JoAnne and Ryan and Alexis Vickery. Vito’s offers a variety of entertainment including Comedy Club, Murder Mysteries, wine tasting (Wed 5:30~8:30 pm), and live music. For specific dates and times, please check their website: or call 480.832.3311.

Hours are Sunday ~ Thursday 11 am 9:30 pm, Friday ~ Saturday 11 am 10:30 pm.

Vito’s offers a discount to teachers and to Mesa Fire and Police Department employees. Sunday is family night with kid’s meals for $1.99. Patio seating is available (weather permitting).

Vito’s has a great reputation for quality and service. People keep coming back for more!

Vito’s has earned my rating of 5 of 5 breadsticks! Best Italian food around!
