The roots of V’s Italiano Ristorante date back to 1963 when “V” (Vita) and Jay Totta decided to open the first “V’s Café”, consisting of a seven stool counter, three tables, and four booths, for a total seating capacity of 35 people. Utilizing family recipes rich in tradition, high quality standards, and the personal touch of “V” herself greeting customers, an ever expanding business was created.
In 1966, the Totta’s acquired and remodeled a building that seemed massive at the time. It could accommodate 85 guests; nearly two and one-half times the original seating. However, that building was soon outgrown. “V” and her husband Jay, an architect, dreamed of someday being able to design and build their own building that would create an atmosphere of elegant, old world charm.
The dream became reality in 1972 when the present building was completed. The dining room comfortably accommodates 150 patrons in a relaxed atmosphere. The building also has a beautiful lounge and three private dining rooms available for groups of up to 135 guests. On the exterior of the building is a beautiful wood arbor with grape vines planted by V’s father, Tony Barber. These vines are now carefully tended by the fourth generation, and can be viewed from the interior of the “Vista Vite” room. You may also enjoy a cocktail under the vines, while listening to the cascading waters of our beautiful stone waterfall in the intimate setting of our “Garden Patio”.
“V”, the entire Totta family, and staff are thankful to you, our many friends and loyal customers, who have provided over five decades of friendship and support. We trust our sincere efforts to provide you with a pleasant dining experience will merit your continued patronage.
