Vita - Erwin Square, Durham

For date night this week, we ate at Vita in Erwin Square in Durham. We followed this up with a showing of The Incredible Hulk (see what a cool wife I am haha). Vita is part of the Giorgios Bakatsias group of restaurants. It was previously known as Verde. I've wanted to check it out after reading a few good reviews of it on eclectic glob.

We arrived early and were the only ones there. All of the staff was very friendly and attentive. We tried a cheese (provolone) and the mediterranean olives as our antipasto. They were both served with a few crunchy slices of yummy crostini.

For my entree, I ordered the roasted veggie calzone. It was more then I was able to finish. It had slightly sweet roasted red peppers, zucchini, onions, ricotta, and mozzarella. I really enjoyed it. My only negative feedback is that the crust was really chewy and hard to cut, even with a sharp knife.Mark had the polpetti con spaghetti. It was several gigantic meatballs with just the right amount of pasta. He loved it. All of the ingredients in our dishes were very fresh and properly cooked. The 3 drinks, 2 apps and 2 entrees totalled out around $38 with tip. Vita was a fantastic deal and we'll definitely be going back.
