Vita's: a meal in an Italian kitchen

By Kate Haire

If you like good food, then Vitas is the place to go!

Even if you aren’t Italian, you can still  enjoy the grand food and the personable workers at Vitas in Bristol.

Walking into Vitas is like stepping into an Italian family’s kitchen.

They’ll make you just about anything you want – and both quality and quantity is the name of the game at Vitas.

“Vitas is the best combination of convenience and affordability,” said Bryant Wong, 15, who attends Bristol Eastern High School.

Vitas serves so much food, that you wonder how it could make a profit with such great prices. It also gets orders done quickly so nobody’s waiting around for a meal.

The meals are definitely gustoso, or tasy, and no wonder.

“All our meals are made here, not like McDonalds. More like Mama used to make,” said Alexis Matukaitis,  a Vitas employee.

Not only does Vitas have great food, but it’s also a great community hangout.

The Farmington Avenue restaurant is decorated nicely, with an Italian theme, of course.

The menu is painted on the wall (done by Sarah Ives) and features pictures of some of the dishes.

Overall, the atmosphere is very comfortable.

“Customers and friendly service is part of what makes Vitas so good,” said Kelly Young, who also works at Vitas.

She said that sandwiches are among the more popular foods ordered at Vitas.

Vitas has a broad menu, which should make it easy for most everyone to find something to eat. Go with many friends and everybody can get something they like.

Whether you want to sit at the counter, a table or in a comfortable booth, Vitas is about variety and finding something right for you.

One thing’s for sure: Vitas is buono!

(That’s good in Italian.)
