I've only been there for lunch and have never been disappointed. The service is good and the lunches tasty & filling. I usually get the roasted vegetable sandwich with broccoli rabe and take half of it home.

Had a bit of an uneven experience here in the spring but decided to give it another go and so glad I did. Service as always is attentive and friendly. Food was very good this time and at a reasonable price. I had the arancini app which was delicious and chose the chicken francaise for my entree. The chicken was... More

Fruitte del mar. Wanted to take picture but it was gone! Delicious, friendly service. A favorite place of ours. And added a comfortable bar rail.

So I was dragged to this place for lunch while I was in town on business. It was around the corner from the office, so convenience usually wins in those situations. Upon entering, I was confused as to where to go. When you walk in, you walk in to a bar area. Fortunately the people I was with knew where... More

Vitale's is one restaurant in the snug little town of Gloucester City that you won't want to skip. This gem-over-the-bridge is just what you've been craving: old world dishes served with a smile at great prices! Scott & Justin, the bartenders in the cozy cocktail lounge, greet you cordially and you are taken into the small dining room where warm,... More

Have been to Vitale's twice recently and while the first time everything was delicious, the second time was more toward mediocre. First visit we had mussels red over pasta...very good, tasty, and fresh, and such a large portion! Came with salad which was generic but tasty as well. Second visit had chicken meatballs with broccoli rabe and white cannellini beans... More

If you want room temperature food that tastes like it was frozen and thawed and you like to eat your Italian food room temperature, this is the place to go. Cold, bland, tasteless food. Very disappointing! I was with a party of ten and no one thought their meal was anything spectacular. The restaurant is kept a little on the... More
