I have eaten here three times now. The food here is excellent and is fresh made. The restaurant is very small but the flavors are very big!

This place makes everything from scratch and you can see the bakery in operation right behind the counter. The baked goods are great because they are so fresh and they have some clean tasting healthy options. I had the greek salad and my partner had some sort of a pizza roll item (sorry I wasn't really paying attention). I had... More

Vita has the best sandwiches you can find outside of a NYC deli! Super great quality and attention to detail here, everything is consistent and always delicious. I love the house smoked meats! So grateful to have these folks in town and I will be back again and again for as long as we both shall live.

I always love getting updates on the specials going on at Vita Cucina. I have my go to favorite items on the menu like the BLT and Caesar or Greek salads, but it's the specials that make my lunch life ever changing! The meatloaf sandwich with potato bread is one of the recent delights I encountered. Yum!

Not what I expected from all the great reviews. This place is more like a deli. We stopped in on a Wednesday afternoon and there were 5 people working busily in the kitchen. There was a constant stream of customers. We had an amazing pasta salad and the best sandwich I've had all year. Remember to get a baked goodie... More

I stopped in here for a dinner to take back to my hotel room. Everything is made fresh. I ordered a chicken Calzone and it was really good. Made fresh takes awhile, so next time I'm going through Crescent City I'll call ahead. Also, they didn't give me any utensils or napkins. I think mostly locals eat here. But, give... More

Culinary Institute of America trained chefs/owners Devon & Michelle Morgante. We love to cook and bake everything from Michelle’s quiches, morning glory and bran muffins baked daily to my house cured and smoked pastrami, ham, turkey and bacon. We bake all of our own breads: focaccia for our turkey, Cuban, breakfast sandwiches and specials; I also bake what we call an artisan loaf which is slightly sour and a sour dough loaf that is made from a starter I created using blackberries from my backyard. The menu change weekly and reflects the cravings of the cooks. On Thursdays and Fridays nights after 4:00 pm we serve pizzas. Top your pizza pie with some of our homemade topping like: pesto, garlic white sauce, sausage (yes, I grind my own sausages), roasted garlic, roasted mushrooms, smoked chicken, roasted pork and locally made Rumiano cheese. Thank you for your time
