This is our favorite Italian restaurant. We have been customers since inception. Having an Italian heritage I can attest to how delicious the food is and it's made fresh!

The service was decent but not that attentive. The butternut squash ravioli was as good the version lean cuisine makes but for 17.50 (not kidding). It just didn't seem "homemade fresh.". My friend had the chicken and it was sadly prepared and very salty and dry. The roasted potatoes were edible but Denny's probably does a better job. The best part of the meal and that I feel they are best at creating is the pumpkin gelato. It was flavorful and creamier than most gelato I've tasted, even in Venice, Italy. If you want a mediocre pasta dish, eat at Vitaly, but your dollar will go farther at Modo Mio (Crystal Cove) as taste goes. I always like to try the Camp for hip restaurants and nouvelle cuisine, but this isn't the Italian food you would hope for. It just gets worse and worse every year. If you nor on a budget there are many other options and if you are, Lucci's in HB tastes better.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the trendy, casual ambience. Perfect for dinner before a show at Segerstrom. We had a party of 8 and shared several entrees. Loved it all. Would absolutely recommend.

My friends and I wanted to go to the Camp but we couldn’t decide where to eat, until my friend stumbled upon this Caffé. We’ve been at the Camp many times but we’ve never actually eaten at the Caffes. This Caffé was very excellent and the man who served us was very sweet & helpful!! Would totally recommend 100%! & would go back again soon!!!

Great food! This place has a European vibe to it being half coffee/dessert and half restaurant, but the pasta was delicious. I had the seasonal butternut squash ravioli and my husband had the lasagna. We also did the gelato tasting of 5 flavors and they have a lot of unique flavors. I would highly recommend!

Our waitress was very friendly and helpful... I would have given 5 stars for her service, but a couple of the other employees seemed rather inexperienced and indifferent. The food & drink delivery were rather slow, and it wasn’t really busy.
The food was good, not exceptional. they offer gluten free and vegan options. Their gelato is probably the best I’ve had outside of Italy! The location is fun, several outside and a few inside tables.. a casual atmosphere.
We were disappointed they don’t serve bread with their pasta dishes.

This was my third time eating the fabulous food at Vitaly! This time I took a friend who had never been there and she was WOWED!!! That antioxidant soup is simply spectacular. I have yet to eat the handmade gelato, which they are known for, because I was completely full and satisfied after the soup and a bowl of fresh fettuccini with tomato and basil sauce. If I lived in Costa Mesa I would eat there everyday!
