Apparently from what I've read, Vitello's is under new management. That explains why I paid $19 for a simple chicken parm, that used to be $10.95. I have an old menu at home, and compared the prices, and everything has increased, AN

This used to be a great Italian restaurant until they decided to try and get fancy with the menu. Now the place is empty every night and sad. Don't tell me you are trying to be "more healthy" I'm Italian! People are supposed to want to

We went in the summer and the place was very dark and we joked about it. We could barely see our waiter standing next to us and actually heard a disembodied voice and noticed a shadow. It was pretty funny. We meant to have only a pizza,

This place has been around forever -- just ask Robert Blake. Still, if you're in the neighborhood, and you want some regular-ol'-Italian served without attitude, and you like seeing C-list TV stars while you eat, this is the place.

I am not sure who went here and did not like the food or service. Everything from begining to end was really good. It was a nice dining experience and better than another upscale eatery not far away. It is like old Hollywood...and by old I mena 80s:)

This is a great family restaurant with old italian style. The food is yummy and moderately priced. The staff and ambiance seals the experience with genuine charm.

I am a 11 year old kid who loves Vitellos! The Manager is very very nice, the servers treat you like you are in your own house. Best of all the food comes out in a resanable time and the food is amazing. It is my favorite food. I love

Pros: Grat Staff

This is the place where a famous actor was dining with his estranged wife when she was shot in their car, which was parked on the side street (not in their giant parking lot). The actor was found not guilty of her murder.

A lot of people wanted to eat here because of that. Unfortunately, it's a very old restaurant that serves the kind of Italian food it was probably serving 40 years ago.. wait service is ok.

If you want chicken parm or other typical Italian fare, it's acceptable food in a decent setting, but this is not the place you go for great food.

Went for a friends birthday and sat in the Opera room, our waitress Lauren was a hoot....Hearing all the people sing is fun, but you can't really have a conversation, I guess if you don't want to talk to who you are with then its good. ;)

The decor of the restaurant is very pretty, and the waiters are wonderful. But, the taste is not that impressive.....
It's Americanized Italian food.

Just make sure that you do not run into Robert Blake there and you will be ok. We use to go there all the time when our friends lived around the corner from there. It has great atmosphere and the food is really excellent. We try and get seating upstairs so we can be more ourselves. I love to dip their garlic bread in Balsamic vinegar , it is such a good combination. Olive oil and the spices make this place better then others.

PROS: Delicous and very homey feeling

The best home style Italian restaurant in the valley. It is not a chain so the food is very unique. Andy Garcia's favorite place.
