We have been going to Vitello's for a number of years. The remodeled restaurant is a major improvement! The pizzettis and Jane's salad are staples and always are great. The service leaves a little to be desired, but the food makes up for it.

We have been going to Vitello's for years, and this year went for our anniversary to the remodeled version. It was beautiful and the service was great. Food was great. We miss the back piano bar with the retired musicians - that was extraordinary. Wish that would come back somehow.

Great restaurant in studio city. The whole front opens up, so you feel like you're sitting outdoors. Nice wine list.

I've been going to Vitello's on occasion since I was young and have always enjoyed their food. However, they've done a recent remodel and instituted a totally new menu with it, which is fabulous. I've had several dishes there that I love, and their specials are also wonderful. On the downside though, it's much louder than it used to be... More

My mom took me here to enjoy my Birthday, the service was good, and the waitress was attentive. The food was delicious, but as I was eating the Rigatoni, I couldn't digest the bay leaf It was big and I felt that I was going to choke. After finally getting it out. I had earlier mentioned that it was my... More

We have visited Vitello's a few times recently and mostly had a pretty good experience. in our last visit however, the service was below average. Our waiter past by our table time and again before approaching after nearly 15 min to introduce himself. During the entire evening he was nearly an "Absentee" waiter and he came to ask if we...

Built by 2 brothers in the early 1960s across the street from the present location (A former small supermarket, through you'd never know it now !) This excellent Italian experience was built from the ground up across the street in an old 5&10 cent store as a deli. The present location was converted from the old market by the two... More

Went for dinner late evening, they were about to close the kitchen but said they would stay open for our order (great customer service!!!). Food was good but nothing you couldn't find at a good Italian eatery. Atmosphere is good.

Very simple. It's way passed it prime. The soup taste like canned soup. if you want Vitello's food...Go to Vitello's Exspress on Ventura.

This is a very trendy hipster place. Great vibe, outside patio, back room, upstairs dining room..it's fancy stuff. There's live jazz music in the evenings. I came here for lunch so I missed the romantic stuff. I ordered the Baked Salmon with Pesto. The meal comes with veggies as well. I highly recommend the Arugula Avocado Salad. DELICIOUS..fresh spinach and... More
