Vitello's is an Italian Restaurant in Studio City, Califiornia. What makes it unique is that it has an upstairs show room called the E Spot Lounge, where a limited, but excellent range of food choices are available. The pizza is terrific, very thin, chared at the edges; excellent. The pastas are well prepared; I had angel hair primavera, and found... More

We arrived early for dinner and received excellent and pleasant service in the "open to the street" space which had a nice ambience. The Truffle Mac n Cheese was a very satisfying starter we shared, followed by the Lobster Ravioli and the Cioppini - both good. The Cannoli was excellent but the layered Spumone gelato cake tasted very factory produced.... More

We have been coming on and off with friends who go every Thursday night to get dinner and listen to live music. We saw Arturo Sandoval, and others. Wonderful energy, great service, delicious food, fun vibe. It really makes you feel you are far away from LA crowds and noise. Deliberate and thought through venue for music and food.

Not too many places have gluten free pizza so I was happy the first time I found out they made it. I have had it there several time and its always been so good. The serve there is very good and I found the staff are all fun friendly people.

Started off with an appetizer which was delicious. The avocado salad was amazing. Also, Ordered the chicken Alfredo and short rib ravioli which is enough to share and taste everything. Lisa provided excellent service and explained the specials and gave wonderful recommendations. We will definitely be back.

Good Italian food in a very pleasant space. The service was friendly and prompt and the prices were reasonable. The fried zucchini and calamari were popular starters.

Parking available on the street, metered or free check the signs and valet parking on site. Good food-brunch choices included classics, omelettes, lox/eggs, and a wonderful baked dish with eggs,marinara, sausage or bacon scrambled in and some toast. GLuten free blueberry waffles were really tasty and the coffee was always refilled! The atmosphere is nice-not loud-private booths, or a nice... More

Fantastic atmosphere. The piano player sang in the background and she was romantic and playful. Our dinners were superb. We started with chopped Caesars, and warm crusty bread with creamy butter. I had the carbonara and my love had the veal. Ended it all with a double cappuccino and tiramisu. Vitello's is outstanding. I can't wait to come back. Love... More

I first visited Vitello's in 2000...just before Robert Blake allegedly shot his wife there. After that event, the prices were jacked up. While the Italian food has always been 'pretty good' the low prices were sufficient value. Fast forward another few years and Vitello's has expanded the upstairs VIP area, removed all the funky wrap around booth seating, taken down... More

From the minute I walked in I was impressed. Piano player great atmosphere, great service. I ordered the skirt steak which came with rice and asparagus. The steak was probably one of the most delicious steaks I have ever had . The rice was really flavorful I could have eaten a whole meal of it and I'm not a big... More
