Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Put pizza where it performs best with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and Italian specialties at Vitale's Pizza in Kentwood.
A regional mainstay that has delighted diners for more than 40 years, Vitale's Pizza makes its delicious disks, palate-pleasing pastas, and other tasty fare fresh every day. Vitale's bakes both hand-tossed traditional pizzas and Chicago-style deep-dish pies, ensuring pizzaphiles of all stripes feel as comfortable as they do in their own crust-domed homes. Peruse the myriad wonders of the menu, which includes the meat-decked, mozzarella-festooned penne al forno ($7.50 for a single serving), a 16-inch chicken alfredo pizza ($18.80), and a vegetarian sub ($5.25) that is virtually undetectable to traditional ham-based sonar equipment. Vitale's features a cozy dine-in space with seven tables, but many customers opt for carryout orders (this Groupon isn't valid for delivery).
For more than 40 years, Vitale’s Pizza’s staff has baked hand-tossed specialty pizzas loaded with a subset of more than 20 toppings. The capicola-laden Italiano pizza presents a cuisine sample of Europe’s most Italian-speaking peninsula, whereas the taco pizza’s tomato-, olive-, and onion-loaded slices offer a Mexican-styled culinary experience within the eatery’s seven-table dining area. To complement the restaurant’s syllabus of specialty pies, the oven-baked roast-beef sub quells belly rumblings with mayo and fresh mozzarella, and a bowl of spaghetti with the house’s signature meat sauce acts as an inconspicuous treasure vault for a shoestring thief.
