The best pasta I've ever had! Got to try the Gelato after dinner and it was amazing as well! Will definitely be back soon!
My husband and I love Vitaly! The most authentic Italy restaurant in OC. The pasta is fresh, the wine is great and the gelato is perfection after a meal. We love coming here and will be back!
Taste homemade, all the ingredients blend together! I highly recommend and it will not disaappoint.
Yummm one of my favorite soups anywhere! Light and healthy, but fulfilling. With a side of piadina, it's the perfect meal when you want something lighter.
Mango sorbet was amazing It was delicious . The owners are kind attentive and made to order orders late environment was charming warm and inviting
Easily the best lasagna I've eaten outside of Italy...
My current favorite that I order once a week. A very tasty, healthy salad made with fresh, well-balanced ingredients.
Visited Italy, had the best homemade lasagna and Vitaly's is as close as it gets...just like we are back in Italy!
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 was a nice find. I was quite hungry and looking for a place with healthy options and coffee and outdoor seating. I found them when I looked at the CAMP website where there listed which businesses were still open and the hours were listed. The restaurant has a very nice and comfortable outdoor seating area with the tables spaced out per COVID regulations, everyone wore masks and cleaned the tables thoroughly after each group left. I ordered the Alaska (smoke salmon, avocado toast, chard, tomatoes on an amazing piece of bread). It was delicious. You'll have to ask for salt and pepper as they need to be wiped between uses. This may sound odd but I really appreciated that the meal and coffee were served in normal dishwater and not to-go containers. These days that is an extra touch and also adds to the restaurants workload of washing dishes and such which I realize also means they have someone washing dishes (another job!). These are things that I happen to think about and am including in case it's something you are also looking for. They also have a bathroom which they allow the customers to use. I include this because many, many restaurants who are open have locked off their bathrooms to customers. This is important to know these days. I had a regular cup of coffee and it was brewed perfectly. Everyone was quite pleasant and obviously working incredibly hard. I will definitely go back.
Affogato is delightful and reminds me of when I spent time in Italy.. they have great espresso drinks, gelato, and sandwiches. I love this spot.
My family has been coming to Vitaly for years! Always, we enjoy the homemade pasta and creamy gelato! My teenage son always get 1-2 portions of the fettucine alla bolognese, and wolfs it down, asking for gelato after. We also love the fettucine with mushroom and sausage, and the lasagne. In addition to the gelato, I will get the affogoto, because their coffee is wonderful...better than most coffee houses I go to.
Fettuccine a la bolognese is the best! Sauce was just right!
I love this place! The food is delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. We have never eaten anything here that was not amazing and their gluten free options are unbelievable. Pasta and bread that is gluten free and taste like the real thing are hard to find. And you can't go wrong with their coffee and gelato.
The combinations of flavors is so fresh and delicious. I had the gluten-free pasta and it was delicious as well.
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.
