With an eclectic calendar of great jazz and the San Fernando Valley’s best Italian food, Vitello’s is a staple of the Studio City jazz & fine dining scene. Site of the notorious Robert Blake/Bonny Lee Bakley incident, it continues to be a landmark on the Tujunga Strip.
The lineup includes a number of Los Angeles legends as well as performers who are simply legendary for their regular Vitello’s engagements. Performers have included the likes of Lorraine Feather, Tierney Sutton, Cheryl Bentyne (of The Manhattan Transfer), Peter Eldridge (of New York Voices) and regular Tuesday Guitar Night with legendary jazz guitarist, John Pisano.
Tickets for performances are not particularly cheap (though relatively inexpensive in comparison to other L.A. venues) especially with the food & drink minimum, but for a classy night out with superb Italian cuisine, Vitello’s is hard to beat.
