Great Italian food and awesome ambience

I love the ambience here. It is dark, very comfortable, and it has an old school Italian charm. My friend and I sat at the bar and had some drinks. The bartender was nice, quick, and helped us with our order. We got a cheese plate to start, which was delicious. The onion compote on the cheese board... read more

We love Vitos. If it wasn't such a large place I wouldn't review it. Excellent old Italian ambiance. Consistently excellent food, great drinks, lots of locals. Plenty of live music. We've sat at the bar and in a dark booth, both are equally enjoyable.

Popped in here on a whim about 10:30 pm on a Saturday night with two friends and enjoyed the hipster energy. The woman torch singer was great and enjoyed the classic old school lounge decor. Also enjoyed that the place was only about 80% full so we could easily get a comfortable place to sit. Negatives which cost them a... More

This place is old and when I say old it's been around for over 60+ years. Of course they have new owners & it's been modernized to hipster status . It's a perfectly dark place to hide from anyone you may know , maybe perfect place to have an affair , drink , eat , listen to great music and... More

Piano bar with 90 year old jazz player, dark lighting, red leather(?) seats, and the ability to order anything on menu made how you want. No portion control here. All fresh, albeit over-seasoned food. Its old place and a bit of a dive, but has a cult following of sorts. Prices are reasonable. I go because its very local, but... More

This feels like a classic Italian restaurant, with all common Italian foods. The decor is "friendly", the staff are great and attentive, and it is easily accessible from downtown (if you don't mind a steep uphill walk!). I had a filling and delicious sausage and garlic pizza along with an olve and pita appetizer.

Visit yesteryear when lounges were lounges and lounge lizards were lounge lizards. All they had to do to be hipster in 2014 was wait and not redecorate for 40 years. Think of a dive bar combined with a 70's Italian lounge, mix in some live jazz and hipsters with beards and there you have it. An OK place to chill... More

I went to Vito's on the recommendation of the Navigator (concierge) at the Renaissance Seattle. I wanted someplace close, with live music. He said to be prepared for late-1960's ambiance. Coming from the NY area, I've seen the old-style decor before. I sat at the bar and had a house salad (large, fresh and the grapes were a nice, sweet... More

What a relief to find an ordinary restaurant.... Good food, nice atmosphere, good music. The overly hip and precious food scene in Seattle gets old after awhile- this is a great antidote.
