My husband and I have been coming here for several years. We travel some distance, and pass other Italian restaurants, to get here. Their sauces, bread and Margherita pizzetti are superb. So wish we live closer.

Do you think you have the right to hold an opinion about what foods look appetizing or not? Or whether you think the food is tasty or not? Well, if you do, don't go to Vitello's, because Mr. Vitello, the younger, thinks he knows best! The subject - pepperoni pizza. Last Friday night. I ordered a pizza with mushrooms, peppers... More

We recently visited Vitello's on a recommendation from a friend, and were completely blown away with the timeless ambiance and amazing food! The service was impeccable and the waitstaff made you feel like "part of the family". I can honestly say I have not had Italian food prepared as good as Vitello's in very long time. We are hooked and... More

The sauce lacks flavor, the pizza is doughy and the pastas are bland. Atmosphere is quaint and the customer service skills are accommodating yet staff could be more energetic. Overall, the reviewer that described this as run of the mill described it perfectly. Reasonably priced, low end wine list, nothing stellar here. I'd return if the pizza hadn't been so... More

We have been coming to this fantastic little gem for a couple of years now, and I figured it was time to give them their well deserved accolades. The food is amazing. If you are looking for real authentic Italian food, then stop looking because we found it here at Vitello's Trattoria. My family and I have had at least... More

The restaurant is small but pleasantly decorated. The menu is quite extensive and the prices are reasonable. Unfortunately, the food is, at best, average. The entrees were not particularly well presented and while not bad, they were rather bland. The service, however, was very attentive and accommodating. Although not a fan of the Olive Garden, I would return there before... More

We just had a wonderful pre-wedding dinner for out of town family at Vitello's Trattoria. Vince was wonderful to work with, the room easily accommodated 30 people with room for mingling as well. The food was delicious (a special shootout to the Pizzetti di Stefano and Homemade Cannoli!). The staff were attentive and their service and the great private setting... More

My husband and I decided to try a new restaurant locally. I love Italian food, it's not his favorite. We had the Bruchetta - the bread was a bit over toasted so eating it was difficult. The Eggplant Parmesan was just OK. It appeared that it had been previously frozen and then baked and the marinara was a bit too... More

After reading all the reviews on here, I decided to go here for lunch. I had 3 of my kids with me. One had gnocchi, one had pizza and one shared with all of us. I got the eggplant parmesan and a Caesar salad. One of my daughters ordered garlic bread too. So, we covered a lot of dishes. I'm... More

We drive from Ventura just for Vitello's... it's the best!!! Mary is so nice and always remembers our order, we love her! Everything is good, but the fresh bread, pizettes, pink sauce and tiramisu are fabulous.
