Vito's

Every college kid worth his Animal House poster knows that pizza is the staff of life, so it's wise of Vito La Fata III to run his business on the eastern edge of Saint Louis University. But make no mistake: These aren't your typical, greasy, gotta-get-through-finals pies. La Fata's pizzas are for the connoisseur. The perfectly chewy crust is lifted into the stratosphere by zippy tomato sauce, mozzarella and super-fresh toppings. The number of choices (from traditional pizza margherita to an ooh-la-la shrimp-and-artichoke pie) can make for tough decisions, but you really can't go wrong. And don't forget to ask for fresh basil -- it's grown in the garden out back.
