Vito’s Pizza with Cheri Oteri

Dinner with Cheri Oteri at her favorite pizza joint Vito’s Pizza in West Hollywood on LaCienega!

Vito is the man! Everybody knows him and everybody loves him! People go there just to see him. Vito walks his pizza dough and talks to it. He is a legend! He has been asked to be on shows on numerous occasions and he always turns it down. He says that’s not for him, he is a pizza maker. Can you believe it? someone who can care less about being on TV. Its all about his pizza!!!

We started out with Greek Salad, Baked Ziti, Bread Sticks and Wine. Yes, we started out with all that before even diggin’ in to our pizza!

The Garibaldi
Start with a basic margherita, add meatball fresh tomatoes and jalapenos. named after the man who liberated Mexico

Cheri O “Chi Chi”
Cheri left the neighborhood and came back talking crazy ideas about pizza. Vito fought her on it evidently she won. This one’s for her fresh arugula, thinly sliced prosciutto, gorgonzola and toasted pine nuts on top of a white pie.

And Cannoli for desert!

All are must haves! They do have pizza by the slice as well as beer and wine!
