Restaurante Don Vito

There are several nice restaurants within about 6-8 blocks of our home.  Don Vito happens to be one that we have frequented several times. It has a really big menu from pizza to steaks and pasta and seafood and so much in between.

We started our dining at Don Vito’s with chivitos when we came here a few months ago looking for a house to rent. But soon moved up to Sunday steak dinners.  The food is plentiful and Joe and I found we could order one meal and just split it and that is more than enough for us.

The steak we chose has been on the Chefs suggestion special daily menu. Bife Ancho similar to a sirloin as it is a thick cut, but tender like a tenderloin. The cut is like rib eye. We ask it to be cooked very rare. It is cooked on the parrilla which is a style of roasting meat over wood. It came with a baked white potato, a baked orange sweet potato, a roasted red pepper as well as rolls and a condiment tray which had chimichurri, an assorted chopped up pickled veggies and a mayo garlic and herb spread that we actually used on our baked potato. Yesterday we ordered an OJ for me as I am fighting a cold and a cappuccino for Joe and the total bill including a 10% tip was 669 pesos or $24. It was great this is the third Sunday we had it for lunch, so much food we can’t fit anything for dinner.

The kids love that they have a few parrots at the front of the restaurant.  Keeps them busy while their parents enjoy a nice lunch.

It was a beautiful sunny day for an enjoyable outdoor dining experience.  This happens to be our favorite restaurant so far.

My friend and neighbor Maria brought over a container with squash or sweet potato cooked and put in a sugar syrup. It is decadent, I severed a small bowl with a bit of heavy cream on top as a dessert one evening, it was sensational and it was a veggie…N
