I will never eat here again. 47.00 for this pizza when I complained was told 45 for a new pizza. I was fine with this, but when he said and give us back those pizzas and that he wouldn't refund me any of my money I was pissed. I had people here that came to eat and had already been... More

This wasn't a deep dish pizza but it is the best around. Ordered half portabello mushroom half supreme for delivery. Not sure how to describe it but the sauce, ingredients, and crust leave you in heaven. Costs a little more than chain pizza places but definitely worth it for the quality. Family owned local Italian restaurant.

Whether you want to be a carnivore and enjoy a Phat Sal sandwich (or salad), or dig into one of the best Chicken Parmesan entrees, or you just want a good eggplant Parmesan, go to Vitale's!

Vitales is located in Macomb, Illinois, a great small Midwestern town and home to Western Illinois University. The owners are Italian and wow, do you know it! The food is incredible -- super fresh and absolutely delicious. We were there for steak night (Saturdays). Prepare to wait a bit but it will be totally worth it. Two in my party... More

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... 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.
