Uneatible – Nine of us went to the "dinner show" last night (12/30/11). We were celebrating with family visiting from Norway. The food was absolutely terrible. No one could finish their meal. The spagetti and meatballs was tasteless, and the shrimp risoto was very fishy. My mother-in-law (a teriffic cook herself) took two bites of her egg parmigian and stated to my wife and I that it was "uneatible". Something has changed in the last 6 months and in my opinion it is definately the food preparation. I have had better spagetti in the cafeteria at school. Service was marginal at best, and this seemed to be related to a total lack of staff. For $300 one would think that there would be atleast one positive comment from our group, but that was not the case. My wife and I will never go back.

73% price increase! Goodbye Vitello's! – 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 UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNT! The price of our entrees increased 73%, not a buck or two, but 73%. Seriously? Are these people crazy? And my wife and I were not happy with the quality of our meals from this new management. It's always been a great place to get a reasonabley priced, quality Italian meal. NOT ANYMORE!

Vitello's sleeps with fishes - AVOID – 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 EAT here! If I wanted carrots and bland broiled fish I could mess that up in my own kitchen. They don't even give you bread anymore unless you ask for it. What the hell?

RIP Vitello's

How sad for longtime Vitello's fans! – Indeed a sad day for loyal Vitello's fans. This once iconic Italian restaurant now has new management, new chef, new menu and new staff. It doesn't remotely resemble the old Vitello's. The amazing food that made this place famous is no longer being served. Now your tiny portion of eggplant parmesan is accompanied by mashed potatoes along with carrots and broccoli that look like they came out of a frozen bag at Trader Joe's. WTF? The service is equally bad. Heartbreaking for loyal Vitello's fans like me. Avoid this new place at all costs!!

A SAD DAY IN STUDIO CITY...VITELLO'S HAS BIT THE BULLET – HOW SAD! VITELLO'S IS UNDER A NEW MENU AND MANAGEMENT AND THE QUALITY OF FOOD WENT DOWN THE HILL. Vitello's is a well known historical Italian restaurant that has somehow downgraded the quality of their food. Do not downgrade a historical restaurant that has a large large regular client base. It will kill your business. DELIVERY WAS AWFUL AS WELL. They used to show up within 30-45 min. This guy took well over an hour and my food was cold. Oh and they fill up your whole dinner with cheap veggies now and have completely cut your portions in half. Clearly they think the customers are stupid and will not notice the increased price and lousy food. I guess they are trying to be healthier but do not compromise a traditional Italian Red menu to be healthier. Just add healthy items. People do not go for Italian food to be healthy! It's normally a treat. The only place left is maybe Damiano's on Fairfax but nothing left in the valley. Il Pastaio is great and much fancier but for some reason their prices end up being almost less than Vitello's and it's in Beverly Hills. This was the only in between traditional southern red sauce place that was acceptable in LA and they just blew it. Once Italians eat here they will never come back! Trust me. Ugh. So sad. I agree with the guy below. It's a super sad day for me to say goodbye to this place. I never thought I would see the day where I would throw my Italian food in the garbage.

Went hwere for Hollywood crime stuff my friend and I love. – 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, but decided to be adventurous, and we ended up having not only that, but lasagna, braciole (sp?) and dessert and salad. We ate it all. Needless to say, it's fabulous. Esp the braciole, it was superb. Everything was great too.

Oldie but a goodie – 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.

Best Pizza Place In The Sanfernando Valley – 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 going there after school to get there thin crust pizza. Anyway you have to at least go there once but you will always want to go back. You have to try Vitellos Italian Restaurant.

Very good italian food with great ambiance – Whenever my wife and I are in the mood for italian food, Vitello's is our first choice. I love the Linguini Afocata, Lasagna, and chicken Picatta. We have never had a bad experience there and the staff is extremley friendly. They check on you often and act as if your happiness means something to them. This I like. We can also bring our 3 year old there because of the great deep booths which is an added plus.
