Delicious food

This is a favorite of ours that we have been going to for forty years. The spaghetti is always good. There is usually some water in the bottom of the salad dish, so that is not good, but I can overlook that. The lasagna is fantastic! The bread sticks are good. The lasagna is fantastic!

My boyfriend and I come to this place about once a week and always have great service. Probably the best pizza in town! Never disappointed!

We went to Vitale's based on a historical recommendation by a friend, who hasn't been in years. We had a hand-tossed deluxe, which was on the good side of average, especially since we had high expectations which is why we went. If you do go, pick up your slice when you eat it - you'll notice the crispy bottom crust... More

Looking forward to what I heard about how great their pizza was, it was a long wait for the pizza and the place was only half full, the pizza was cold. The waiter took the pizza to warm it up and after another long wait and not giving us a new pizza the pan was hot but the pizza was... More

I have been coming to Vitales my whole life, since I grew up in GR. Now I live in Chicago and every time I am home I make it a point to get the pizza here. Every time, the service is fantastic and the pizza is great. It has been consistent for years and years. My brother and I always... More

I had heard so much about Vitale's that perhaps my expectations were too high. The place is nice and clean, well laid out and the service was fast and freindly.The draft beer selection was lacking(only one stout and it was guiness). I had heard so much about the pizza, I had to give it a try. I ordered the spicy... More

I went with friends who live in town, we had the bruschetta for an appetizer and a pizza. I've had bruschetta in many restaurants, this is by far the very best! And the pizza was yummy also. We took the extra tomato's from the bruschetta and put them on top of the pizza. Will definitely order again.

Had dinner on a Tuesday evening. Only 4-5 tables were filled. Service was extremely slow. Ordered the lasagna. It was still frozen in the middle so obviously it is not made fresh daily anymore. My friend had a shrimp dinner and it was cool, not warm. Had to go to the kitchen to find the waitress as she never returned... More

We have been fans of the Vitale's on Leonard since the early 1970's and our favorite meal has always been their lasagna. It was filled with deep, rich flavors and the sauce tasted like it had been made with love and cooked for hours by someone's grandma. We now live on the other side of town so it's more of... More
