An Amazing Family Owned Southern Italian Cuisine

About Vit


We are located at 16646 Marquez Ave, Pacific Palisades, California.

Vittorio’s Ristorante has been a family owned and operated business since 1984.

The owner, Mercedes Pellegrini, was born in Sao Paulo, Brasil. She met her husband while he was travelling to Rio de Janeiro for Carnivale. They married and she came to the USA.

When she arrived to Los Angeles, she started  Mercedes’ Continental Delights, a bakery in the San Fernando Valley. Vittorio’s was one of the many restaurants serving her delicious cakes.

After some years, Giovanni Mazzola and Mercedes decided to partner in Vittorio’s.

Giovanni has since left Vittorio’s to open his own restaurant in Malibu, and Mercedes kept Vittorio’s. She has nurtured and grown the business to what it is today.

Nestled in the hills of Pacific Palisades, we have catered to generations of families and Hollywood stars with our home-style Southern Italian cuisine.

We are committed to authentic and richly flavored dishes.

Our fresh seafood and succulent veal and chicken dishes allow everyone a taste of the old country in a friendly, warm atmosphere.

At Vittorio’s it’s all about an experience you are sure to remember. When you dine with us, you’re Family.
