Our server (I wish I caught her name) was so sweet, it made the evening. She was very attentive but didn't hover - and was very helpful. The bus-person was a little too aggressive at clearing the plates immediately, but his intentions were good, lol. My Chicken Parmesan was delicious, but for some reason, half the normal size this evening -- even compared to the Chicken Piccata my companion was having... Otherwise, everything was wonderful. And they've got delicious Cannoli!

This was a special Tip-a-Cop fundraiser sponsored by the North Hollywood LAPD to raise funds for the Special Olympics. The Officers serve as celebrity waiters, with the police cadets assisiting, and they donate all the tips they receive to Special Olympics. Wonderful opportunity to eat here since we have not dined at Vitello's in many years. Service was a little slow, but the food was delicious.

I highly recommend Vitello's. This is basically my everyday restaurant as I visit there often with girlfriends, my husband and I would take a business associate there to. It is trendy, has live music and the food is excellent. There is never a disappointing meal at Vitello's for sure.

I used to go to this restaurant several time s a week when we lived down the block and when the previous owners were in charge.

Since then we had only come back for the occasional dinner. The restaurant has maintained it's excellent cuisine, however I have found that their prices have skyrocketed way too much. The lunch tab for 3 people, with tip & no alcoholic beverages came to $81.00. Way out of line!

It was a really nice experience — friendly service, great food, great ambience.

We went on a Saturday night, which had very nice, quite loud, live music. It’s not the best place for a quiet conversation, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. We’ll be back.

Vitello's scores on all bases. It is a lovely, beautifully furnished and handsome space, with both open and more cozy, private areas, as well as sidewalk dining. It is upscale without being off-putting. It offers both a vintage fine restaurant experience as well as a contemporary happening vibe. The service is friendly and second to none, and the cuisine is just exquisite. My friend's bone-in rib eye steak was among the most flavorful ever and cooked perfectly, while my eggplant parmigiana was delightfully seasoned, rich and not overly filling. Such a fine experience in every way.

I have been to this restaurant several times over the years and even rented out the upstairs room for a business meeting. We had a waiter and his trainee taking care of us. After our initial encounter, we were ignored by both waiters and eventually two supervisors took note and finally delivered bread to our table. People at the next table were on their third basket of bread. Then there was the food. I can always tell how good the high end restaurant's food is going to be by the quality of the hamburger if there is one on the menu. It sounded great (ground brisket) but arrived cold, flat, dry and tasteless. The chopped caesar salad was the highlight. It was cold and tasted very fresh. All of the other entrees were mediocre at best. They took a percentage off the bill and provided 3 desserts to ease the pain, however they shouldn't have been a bill in the first place. Two managers were very aware of the situation. If they comped the bill we would undoubtedly given Vitello's another chance. Poor food, service and management. NEVER AGAIN!

We hadn't been to Vitello's for years. It was under construction the last time we were there.

I didn't recognize the place. It is very stylist 21st Century. Cool and edgy.

The food, which is no longer old style Italian, was good. So was the coffee and the cocktails were respectable. Our server, Melinda, was very attentive.

The new Vitello's is a tad pricey. Still, I liked it and would return.

Let me start by saying the service was amazing! As for drinks- I did not have a mixed drink so cannot speak to that, but I had wine, which was okay. The wine list is very basic, boring, and limited. They can definitely work on this and get someone to recommend adding wines who knows wines.

As for food, the small group I was with is mixed. I personally thought it was awful and actually ate off another plate. BUT- i was the only one who had fish so maybe just the fish needs to be improved or taken off the menu. It was OBVIOusly frozen that was rolled in batter and thrown in a microwave. It was dry and tasteless, leaving the entree uneatable.

So would I go back...I'm unsure. I think I would to pick aomething else off the menu, and try a cocktail. It might be better. And again- the service was amazing.

The place looks amazing and the service was impeccable as well as the cocktails. But unfortunately it doesn't even come close to real Italian food, and they offer a pizza that taste like it came from the frozen section at the grocery store.

It's definitely hard to please me with Italian food considering I am 100% Sicilian and grew up in a very Sicilian household. But my girlfriend who is the furthest thing from Sicilian did not care for it either, so what does that tell you.
