“Very expensive, mediocre food.”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Not sure why anyone would go here. The space is pretty, the service adequate. But you must be able to do better in LA for this money. A simple pasta special was excessively salty and tasted like it was made with canned tomato sauce. A risotto special was adequate. Go elsewhere!

“Live music was great..”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Found vitello's online looking for live jazz.. The band was wonderful and was the best part of the evening.. The area upstairs was small and intimate giving us the feel of a private show.. The food was not the best as far as Italian goes in Los Angeles.. It was semi tasteless just edible enough.. I would go back for a show and drinks but we would make sure we planned to eat somewhere else first.. Oh and on the Internet it advertised a $10 cover for the live show but when we got there it was $15.. Wasn't too happy about that...

“Go for the upstairs concerts”
Reviewed March 17, 2011

The food is basic Italian, good but nothing spectacular. However, the upstairs supper club is a great venue for jazz. Makes for a delightful evening. Check the performance schedule online.

“Superb Italian Food - Huge selection”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

If you can't find it here..they don't make it! Wonderful homestyle Italian food. Neat atmosphere in a cute little neighborhood with some nice boutiques..stores stay open late.

The lasagna was the best I have ever had....and the wine selection was good. It is evidently a favorite of locals and celebrities as many pics were on the walls with thank you's!

Thank you for the great meal Vitellos! We will be back!
