Vitello's in Studio City has been a Valley classic for years, serving up simple but extremely tasty Italian food. Despite some of its popular culture references (notably the Robert Blake murder case and when the image of Jesus was found in some Manicotti), the restaurant is a neighborhood icon and consistently a community partner.

Today, they opened their second space at the corner Woodman and Ventura. Vitello's Express has some of the Studio City menu and some other additions. There was a big shindig with the mayor, other politicos, and lots and lots of neighbors and friends this afternoon, but they officially open tomorrow for business at 9 a.m. starting with a breakfast menu (breakfast pizza and other egg dishes). And in case you're wondering, we were told that the now-closed dry cleaners next door will soon be an ice cream shop.
