The Story Behind VITA

VITA stands for "Life" in Italian, which is what our restaurant values the most. We source most of our ingredients from the Cal Poly Pomona farms as well as other local farms because we believe in supporting small businesses and reducing our carbon footprint. 

VITA is a place where people from all over the world, of all backgrounds gather together and share their love for unforgettable experiences,  modern yet classic ambiances and good food.
