Vitello's Restaurant Needs Your Help!

The current circumstances surrounding COVID-19 has devastated the restaurant industry here in L.A. Hundreds have closed, many forever. Unfortunately there is little to no relief in sight. Vitello’s Restaurant has been a staple in the San Fernando Valley for almost 60 years. One year ago today we employed over 70 people here in Studio City, many who were from the neighborhood and now we employ less than 12 and are on the verge of closing.

We have always enjoyed being there for our community, whether it’s our annual holiday event, supporting our local schools and their teachers or feeding the areas Police and Fire departments. We have dropped off meals for ailing neighbors and donated food for many memorials, and it’s always been without question. We would like to think that our amazing little supper club, “Feinstein’s at Vitello’s”, has brought as much joy to as many of you as it has to all of us. Live music is such an important part of who we are and what we have done here for almost 15 years. This year has been tough for all of us, some more than others and yet we felt we could weather the storm, but had no idea it would be lasting this long.

We have been left with no choice but to come to you, our friends, neighbors and family and ask for your help. The thought of closing Vitello’s the week before the holidays would be devastating to our staff and is too hard to swallow. We will try to remain open until the new year, at that time, we will assess where we are and decide if we are to remain open or not!

We invite you to help by either donating or sharing our gofund me link on your social media to help us reach our goal so we can continue to bring you great Italian food, excellent service and live entertainment. We wish you all a very happy holiday season but more than anything…a healthy one. Stay safe everyone and thank you.
