I ordered this dish with the gnocchi. It is so.good. Rich and creamy with the perfect balance of sausage and mushrooms. The gnocchi are the perfect, bite-sized soft dumplings. I love this dish with a glass of Prosecco - a sort of palate cleanser to complement the richness. Perfect meal to enjoy and slow down at the end of a busy day.
The Vitaly cappuccino is literally the best cappuccino I have had outside of Italy. The coffee tastes amazing, and the drink is made with a skill that you just don't find in the United States and places like Starbucks. If I could drink one of these every day, I absolutely would. And don't even get me started on the pastries...that custard croissant is amazing too, but seems to be sold out when I go. Makes sense though, they're delicious.
Omgosh, takes me back to my Italian grandparents homemade food. It was amazing. Omgosh. 10/10 would recommend this place. Pasta is fresh and amazing.
Delicious! Such a hidden gem in costa mesa, perfect for lunch, a coffee or a mellow date night. Handmade pastas and a no nonsense indoor outdoor feel. Check it out!
Beyond delicious! I get this every time I come. Paired with the mango smoothie.. To die for. Light, fresh, and delicious.
Bakery items very very good and the caps are awesome. This place is great with a real Italian family feel.
We got some specialty coffee and omlets. The food is to die for and the atmosphere was wonderful. Really feel like you are surrounded by Italian products and in an Italian store.. the costumer service was wonderful and they checked on us multiple time to make sure we have everything and the quality we like.
Love this sauce! Very light cream sauce with super flavorful sausage and mushrooms. The fettuccine is perfectly made as well. I found myself scraping everything off my plate. This is my go to order every time.
Wonderful fresh pasta with the slight bitterness of fresh arugula and salty prosciutto with a hint of lemon zest. My favorite dish at Vitaly I order it every chance I get!
My absolute favorite soup! I moved to Los Angeles and whenever I am in OC I make it a point to come to Vitaly for their Chicken soup and a glass of wine. Love.
The best gelato in SoCal!
I wanted A quick bite I walked in and then felt like I was sitting in Tuscany all over again . I wanted something sweet but not over the top.I tried the Malaya and I asked for shredded coconut on top and extra granola . it was absolutely fantastic the fresh fruits the mango yogurt sorbet was absolutely amazingDelicious .if you want a mix between Authenticity and creativity and love you you must dine here because I certainly felt all of that and more. I met both the owners they were kind genuine and warm and I definitely look forward to having my bridal shower there.PS the best customer service hands down every waiter was very attentive and happy
This restaurant is very nice. They have an excellent selection of tasty healthy dishes. We like to come here on special occasions before a concert or performance at the Segerstrom center. All in all it's a lovely experience.
Alla Bolognese (meat red sauce)
If you want some authentic Italian food, this is the place! So delicious, the portion sizes are big, and everything always tastes great! Thank you!!
Alla Bolognese (meat red sauce)
We also had the filet mignon and Frico with chicken. The filet was perfectly cooked medium rare, flavorful and served with arugula, potatoes generous enough to share. The al dente fettuccine was toothsome and the perfect vehicle for the bolognese. The service was friendly and conscientious to our needs. The gelato was creamy and rich and the flavors true. My favorites are pistachio, hazelnut, and the cherry and meringue.
Porcini soft Mushrooms, Parmesan, Truffle olive oil
We are SO obsessed with this dish! Every time we come here, I insist that someone orders this so I can pick off their dish as I'm trying out other items on the menu that I've never had before. Moral of the story - don't eat with me OR order an extra plate :) Also, definitely get this dish - it's absolutely the best. Even our server was raving about it.
Pasta Spaghetti or Trofie
From Instagram @mikko_eats - Instead of opting for the usual burger routine, we tried out a new place (for us) at The Camp in Costa Mesa. @vitalycaffe serves up some pretty good Italian food. Would come back here in a heartbeat to try their other dishes. 📸: Cutting Board Delight (assorted Italian Cold cuts and cheeses), Rimini Piadina (Prosciutto di Parma, Buffalo Mozzarella, Roma Tomato, Arugula) & Fettuccine with sausage mushroom cream sauce and grilled chicken. ❤️
The chocolate hazelnut gelato is amazing! Everything we've had here has been great. Definitely worth a visit for dinner and dessert.
Porcini soft Mushrooms, Parmesan, Truffle olive oil
Could their porcini dish get any better? I won't go anywhere else from here on out. Thank you, Vitaly!! You're not just my new Italian spot, you're my new favorite restaurant. Ciao, Bella!!
I asked Wren for a recommendation. She profiled my taste buds with a few questions and then created this masterpiece! Nutella and Chocolate Cappucino! I had mine with coconut milk. Yes! It is as amazing as it looks! Thank you Wren!! :)
The gelato is the the best!! Tastes just like you are in Italy- perfect texture and taste. The honey lavender will be my forever favorite
My family and I are always happy to grab dessert here and just take a moment to enjoy being together. Gelato+family outings are the best especially from vitaly! All the flavors are so delicious and yummy. If you get a chance to stop by, try the gelato sandwich. Cheers!
We have been loyal customers of Vitaly for many years. The service is always great and the food very good. Don't forget to save room for their Gelato and coffee specialty drinks. In addition we love to support local non-chain businesses.
Eggs done perfectly! One of my favorite breakfast dishes of all time. Paired with Vitaly's smooth coffee, you can't go wrong. I absolutely love everything this cafe does because they use high quality ingredients and they make everything taste do delicious. A true Italian experience!
I chose this dish because I really wanted the burrata. This dish did not disappoint. I was surprised that the pasta was so fresh and delicious. It is definitely worth it to order pasta at a restaurant that makes their own pasta noodles. I also loved the spice and tomatoes. This was a great blend of flavors without being overwhelming. Simple and great!
Very nice place. Very lively. Smells great!
This is my mine & my husbands favorite restaurant! It's so hard to pick a favorite dish because everything is so delicious & authentic. The best part for me is that they offer homemade gluten free fettuccine! No other restaurant offers this. It reminds me of my grandmothers homemade spaghetti. The gelato is the creamiest & has the best flavor of any gelato I've ever had. Their green soup is Delicious as well. Like I said can't pick a favorite dish it's all so good! Pure heaven here!
The best soup I have ever had is the Antioxidant Soup here. I could eat this everyday.
Isn't it wonderful to find a place in Southern California that takes you right back to Italy? I love the authentic touches, even the style of cup and saucer and packet of sugar servrd on the side, just as it was served in Italy. The taste of the coffee and temperature was spot on, An authentic Italian 6 oz. cappucino all the way!
I could literally eat this soup everyday!! The seasoning, the consistency, the goodness of every bite keeps me ordering it. I'll order a side of grilled chicken when I need to add a little protein to the mix. It's filling & satisfying. Hmmmm... I think I'll go tonight!!
This place has the warmest kind people who work there and if you say hello to anyone they will return the hello. I experience lil miracles each time I go. Be welcomed. Love Annee
Totally loved it! Had it with the salame and it was so good we been the past several nights in a row!
This is actually one of the best waffles I have had in the United States, outside of Belgium and Europe. It is exactly what a waffle should taste and feel like. Adding gelato on top is the best combo. Not too big of a size, and not too fluffy like a basic diner waffle that's white, round and doughy.
I tried gelato and chococino. Both were top notch! I am a gelato and coffee aficionado and can say they were the best I have had in my life! Really fresh, clean flavor of gelato. The coffee drink was amazing too. I live a bit far but will definitely drive to the Camp just for Vitaly.
This place has (I think) the best coffee's in all of Orange County. Went on a trip to italy and the coffee was amazing there! I haven't had such amazing coffee until I tried vitaly. They blended the double shot shakerato (I asked for it blended) and brought it out in a champagne glass. It had the most amazing coffee flavor, I felt like I was on vacation in italy, even though I was on my lap top working. I really feel like they brought Italy to california. Amazing place!
Delicious!! My favorite sandwich here, I get it every time I come !
I just came back from a two-week vacation in Sicily, Italy. Vitaly's homemade gelato is the closest I could find in Southern California. Coffee is excellent. The owner Maurizio, a true Italian gentleman, is so friendly too. They offer a good variety of authentic Italian food (made right) and healthy Californian cuisine. I highly recommend! -Iris
Vitaly is the cutest place to grab a bite. Authentic Italian vibes and quality ingredients for a reasonable price. It's a joy to watch the team make fresh Italian style bread in their oven. Their gelato and coffee are not only gorgeous, but also scrumptious. In addition to everything bring delicious, it's just a really nice spot to enjoy friends or read a book with a coffee.
This soup is sooooo delicious. It's very tasty and warms me from the inside out, not to mention the healthy ingredients with the warm flat bread to go along with it. True comfort food that I crave and can't get enough of. Yummy!!! Oh by the way, a little gelato afterwards hits the spot. 😋
The Mint Gelato and the Dark Chocolate Sorbet are out of this world! YUMMY!
