Not only is Vitello's one of Studio City's most popular and romantic Italian restaurants, its upstairs lounge features jazz musicians, comedians and Broadway performers. Decked out in colorful Italian murals and jazzy artwork, the restaurant serves generous portions of classic Italian fare, including mostaccioli al forno, manicotti and pizzetti, much of it smothered in Vitello's famous red sauce. The downstairs Opera Room is a cozy space that includes Joe's Bar and spotlights smaller combos and chanteuses belting out standards, while the larger upstairs area, which boasts great sound and a baby grand piano, is reserved for big-name, straight-ahead jazz veterans, as well as comedy and Broadway revues. Full bar. All ages.
