Dark and Datey....A great place for you and your boo

the place is downstairs and you honestly feel like you walk into a bygone era of the 1950s. live jazz played on Sunday night. i felt like this is probably what las vegas probably felt like in its heyday of the rat pack....it seemed like this is where the cool kids probably hung out back during that... read more

Stopped for an early dinner, hoping to get some basic, authentic Italian food. The shrimp and polenta appetizer was tasty and unique. Our entrees were average at best. The Chicken Parm was bland and the pasta side was too oily and had way too much garlic. A simple marinara sauce would have been better. The tiramisu for dessert was great!... More

The garlic chicken pizza was very good. However, they need a whole new recipe for their tiramisu. For several years now, every time I go to a restaurant that serves tiramisu, I have to have a piece to see who's is the best. Well, now I know who's is the worst. The custard had a very odd flavor. Even Ruby... More

We love trying out restaurants when we travel having a strict rule not to dine anywhere we could dine at home. In exploring Seattle, I found Vito’s about three blocks east of the Renaissance, our hotel. The restaurant is nice, the ambiance better than normal. We got there as the three-piece band was setting up. This place has been around... More

We'd been to Vito's about 25 years ago and had written it off as an old Italian mafia bar. It's had a new life and new menu, and was quite good despite still being dark and ambient. The piano player was fabulous and came by for suggestions. We ordered the chicken Marsala, Mushroom fettuccini and spaghetti bolognese plus half salads.... More

The food was delicious. The service was good. The drinks are AMAZING. Surprised to not find a wait on a Saturday night, but was grateful we found this little hidden gem!

My daughter and I dropped in for a drink at the end of a really hectic day and ended up having a light dinner. The cheese appetizer plate was delicious and perfect for two and I HIGHLY recommend the Sister Golden Hair cocktail. Delicious and it packed a nice little punch that made sleep later that much better.

Stayinf near Virginia Mason Hospital to go to an appointment the next day, I decided to go back to Vito's. I had the Farfalle Diavolo, a pasta dish with sausage, 3 large prawns, and bow tie pasta in a creamy tomato sauce. Who would have that prawns and sausage would go together so well? It was nicely spicy, absolutely delicious,... More

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 was a... More
