vitos_pizza.jpgOn the way to a birthday party for one of my wife’s friends, we stopped to grab some garlic knots at Vito’s Pizza Fort Lauderdale 954.772.7701.  While there, I was pretty impressed with the way they were making their pizzas.

Unlike many other places I have visited, Vito’s was actually taking their time with each pizza they were preparing, and it actually appeared like they were putting time and care into each pie, as if it were the only ones they would serve.

The young girl behind the counter was actually weighing the dough to make sure she had the right amount for the different size pies, and using a cutter to make them perfectly round.  Although this could be common at many places, it is the accuracy she had that impressed me.  If it didn’t come out perfect she started all over.  Hard to find workers like this around anymore.  The actual guys making the pizza didn’t seem nearly as polite as she was, and kind of seemed annoyed I was asking questions.

I ordered a Sicilian slice and began a conversation with the girl while waiting.  Little did I know it was the same owners as Vito’s in Boynton Beach, which we have reviewed here before.  Read review here.  Once the slice came out I took my first bite and it was a pretty damn good one.  The sauce had a nice sweet taste to it, the crust was crispy on the outside, yet soft on the inside.  Although the cheese could have used a bit more of melting, it was still a bit hot and tasted alright.  If I had to choose the thing at Vito’s that stood out the most, it was the texture and taste of the crust.  They did an excellent job with this Sicilian pie.  Curious how their regular tastes here.

Vito’s I look forward to coming back again soon to try some of the other pizza here, and even give your Sicilian another try to make sure of the consistency. Might also be time to get yourselves a website guys, I am available to help.

    I'm from NY and it's tough to find NY pizza anywhere else. I spent 3 years in NC and we had one pizza place in 50 mile radius that was OK, but no way as goo NY. You could tell when you asked for a Sicilian, they said “what”. Had no idea.

    I'm in Fort Lauderdale now and Vito's is the only place that makes NY style Sicilian pizza that could come from NY and you'd never know the difference. Still haven't found the regualr pizza's a s good as NY, but Vito's is pretty good.

    They seem like NY too, very NY. Got hung up on a few times I was being put on hold, orders are usually 10-15 minutes later than they tell you, but can't complain for what I get.

    Times Square Pizza a mile or so south of Vito's makes good regular pizza, but their service is worse, sometimes you go in 30 min before closing and they tell you they aren't making any more pies, other general rudeness worse than NY.

    Based on your review we (4) tried Vito’s last night. Their service was prompt and very pleasant. We tried their “Garbage” pizza with everything on it and it was good but certainly NOT GREAT. As a substitute for amounts of meats they covered it with a “Ton” of roasted red peppers and onions. At $21. I would have expected much more meat than veggies. We think that Brick Oven Pizza in Delray makes a MUCH better “everything” pie and for less $
