I was going to try Vito's for dinner tonight. Unfortunately, it has new hours and closes at 2100 hours (9 pm). I may need to try it for lunch soon.

Greenville and upstate has a ton of pizza places with lot of variety in how it is made. If you can't find several decent places in upstate, you probably just don't like pizza in general. Many of the pizza places are run by people who are from the areas of the country that are supposedly the best at making pizza.

I tried Vito's Pizza today and it was not my favorite. I thought the sauce was way too bland. I personally really like Wild Ace the best. We are all different and have individual tastes. It was definitely fresh and made from scratch and the crust was good, but overall, did not have a lot of flavor, in my opinion. It was not greasy, which was a good thing, but I prefer a more robust pizza sauce. It's good to have suggestions, though, and I am glad Eldemela found her favorite pizza.

Funny, that's one thing I really do like about his pizza is the sauce. He makes it himself, not a premade product.

As you said, we are all different and what one likes, others my not. I'm always open to trying new places. You never know what you may find that may be better (or worse). I still like the place in Black Mountain the best, but it's so far away, though I will be going with friends this weekend.

I finally had a chance to try Vito's recently when in the area, and it was great. I ordered the Aglio E Olio linguini with anchovies and it was fabulous. The side salad that came with it was simple, but very good with a great house dressing. We ordered meatballs on the side, and those lasted about 60 seconds, mmm. The sauces were all homemade. The owner cooked our food and was very friendly.

My companion ordered a pizza, and it was also very good. It is true authentic style Italian pizza with fresh and higher quality ingredients and sauce slathered on just right; not the overdone, heavy American pizza that is overloaded with too many "canned" toppings (don't get me wrong, that can be good too!). The setting is very casual, seat yourself, and pay at the back counter.

Thanks for the recommendation - will definitely go back to work my way through the menu!

Default Vito's Pizza, Subs and Pasta, Collins Corner, 14166 East Wade Hampton Boulevard, Greer, South Carolina 29651-1554

I have finally tried Vito's. The pizza is good. The pizza sauce could be better without the chunky tomatoes and basil leaves.

Default pizza place in Mauldin Simpsonville

Is there a pizza place in mauldin or simpsonville area that comes close to such authentic Italian taste as this restaurant being talked about here? I'd love to try it, but Greer unfortunately is a little too far for us to frequent..

Frank & Co, downtown Simpsonville, is hands down the best pizza place in the area. By the slice, by the pie, it is great quality at a reasonable price. Friendly staff. Authentic New York style.

Try Morrettis on Butler. These transplanted Buffalo NY folks know something about pizza.
