As I continue my Exploring St. Louis One Meal at a Time series, today I’m sharing one of my all time favorite pizza places, Vito’s Sicilian Pizzeria & Ristorante in Midtown.

I have been eating at Vito’s ever since I discovered they delivered to my CWE condo. I’ve moved away from their delivery area, and miss it every time decide I want a pizza delivered to my home.
I love the Italian sausage pizza, but I think my favorite ingredient is the portobello mushrooms. I’m not sure exactly what they saute the mushrooms in before they go onto the pizza, but it makes them taste amazing.
I’m also a fan of pesto sauce instead of marinara….you can see the green pesto at the edges if you look closely. Seriously, who doesn’t like basil!
Your meal also comes with these fabulous rolls…probably made from the same dough as the pizzas.
And you really can’t go wrong with the caprese salad.
Vito’s is also a family owned business. My favorite kind of place.
Living in the Central West End:
Vito’s is located just east of the popular Central West End district 1 block from the Fox Theater.
It’s a great place to live.
The neighborhood is filled with restaurants, shops and recreation. It includes stops to the MetroLink train that can take you downtown to a ball came, or can get you to the airport without the need for an Uber ride.
It’s also home to IKEA, Cortex and the BJC medical center.
With 74% of homes rented, 39% of adults with graduate degrees and 93% of the households without children, there has been a steady demand for home purchases by buyers and investors in the CWE for years.

Are You Thinking About Moving?
I specialize in selling St. Louis region homes regardless of whether they will be the hot listing to hit the market or if they have a challenge that makes it much harder to sell.
I also work with buyers who want to find the home of their dreams, but don’t want to overpay.
