Surprised to get the best steak in town!

I'm not a lover of Italian food so I'd have to be honest that Vitales was not a place that I thought to frequent. One of my husband's good friends happen to mention and he and his wife had the best steak dinner there and those were words enough to make us decide to give it a try. Rib Eye... read more

Vitales is a great place to eat while in Macomb if you want Italian food. From pizza to Italian Beef you can't find better. Their pasta dishes are great. Prices are reasonable and service is good.

I ordered their special Rib Eye steak with special seasonings, they call it their UGLY steak. I ordered it medium rare, and it came a bit cool. I guess I should have ordered it medium. The steak was tender and had a wonderful flavor. I got the hash browns with cheese, should have stayed with the baked potato. They have... More

Had to wait to be seated at 7:30 p.m. Friday night even though many tables were empty. Had the lasagna special on Friday night for $11 - I think they were out of lasagna, was served a bowl of greasy cheese - there must have been a pound of mozzerella in it! A few scraps of meat were in a... More

Our waitress was pleasant and we were directed to our one trip to the salad bar which I had never experienced but thought it was a great idea to be able to make a salad to your own specifications and not depend on the restaurants decision. The choices were plentiful as was the bread. Our italian dishes were good but... More

Very good Italian-American food with generally fresh ingredients. Many of the dishes are creatively prepared and a good example of home-style Southern Italian food.

I do not understand how this is rated poorly-- I would not advise using Trip Advisor when visiting Macomb because this is one of the best restaurants in Macomb. The food is authentic (the family is from Italy and New York) and it is always delicious. It's very popular around here, and I would recommend ordering a pasta dish. It... More

Horrible tacky atmosphere, gummy pasta, and a rather lanquid wait staff. Full of families with rowdy kids. We hated it. I'm giving it an average because it seems popular with locals who don't seem to know that the pasta is awful and over-cooked.

I could blame myself for not ordering pasta, which I've heard is really good- but I ordered the pizza, which I was not impressed with. I ate there several years ago and thought the pizza was really good, but this time, it's like the crust was like a cracker, and it just didn't taste as fresh as I remember from... More
