Retro mood, live jazz, good food
Though hesitant at first, we found Vito's to be a fun alternative to trendy new places. New owners updated this 50's landmark by preserving and refreshing classic menu and interior (wall mirrors, black linoleum, red leather booths), and adding live jazz, cocktails, and great bar and table service.
At Sat 8:30, tables were mostly full, couples/groups 20s-50s (note: 21+, IDs checked). After 9p, jazz trio (excellent) started and bar patrons streamed in, building a loud, lively scene around the bar (perfect timing to end our meal).
Everyone enjoyed the reasonably priced food: Shrimp gamberoni ($10), "famous" cannelloni ($16), filet mignon w/ bleu cheese mashed ($29), chicken marsala ($16), amaretto cheesecake (delicious).

Nice to be back!
Haven't been in Vito's for ~y~e~a~r~s~ -- and it was great fun to be there again. I felt as if I were in Chicago, rather than Seattle, and that's a compliment. Classic old Italian restaurant. One word: EGGPLANT. Absolutely amazing dish. If you can't decide between two dishes, get the eggplant rollatini to share with the table. Or have it for dessert. Sheer heaven!

I like it a lot because it doesn't look like a yuppie/hipster place. Classic interior. Very unique and enjoyable entertainment mix.

Great Neighborhood Find
We enjoyed the old time feel. We found the restaurant on Open Table while staying at a Seattle hotel prior to a cruise. Our server Matt was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and the portions were right for my wife and myself. We enjoyed the experience enough that we returned the following week while staying in Seattle an extra day after the cruise. Brooke was our server the second time and she also did an excellent job.

My first time in Seattle and
My first time in Seattle and love ole school places. When we first arrived we were a bit concerned with nobody to greet us at the door, or tell them about our reservation. We went to the bar and it took a while to get someone's attention but once we did things went great except that they don't carry Coor Light so husband had to try a couple of beers before he settled on a beer he said he use to drink in school. So add Coor's please. Food was outstanding and our waiter was great. Stayed to listen to the Wally Shoup Quartet. we left after 3 songs. The sax player would play for 30 seconds and then leave to go drink and then come back towards the end and play for 20 more seconds, he wasn't that great. Kudos to the drummer he was fantastic.

Great Jem in Downtown Seattle
This was my first visit to Vito's. It was an easy location to find, parking was a bit challenging, but we managed to find a spot on the street about a block away. The ambiance was fantastic, I had gone specifically to see Casey MacGill's group play. I was so pleased that everyone there was able to chat with friends, listen to the music, and have a wonderful time. The service was fantastic, and even though they were very busy, the servers were attentive and kind.
I plan to visit Vito's again, and bring friends. It is a long drive for me, since I live in Lakewood, Washington. But the trip is worth the effort to one of the greatest jems I have ever found in downtown Seattle!

Great dinner and music
Went to Vitos for dinner. Tasty food and really good value given the quality.
Stayed for cocktails and music - both were great.
Highly recommend checking out Vitos!

Inherent Retro Place
A definite step up from your typical red sauce pasta place. The table had a number of dishes and everyone was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Service was spot on and non-obtrusive.

Savored Every Moment
Classic cocktails, delicious homemade Italian dishes, and live jazz. Need I say more? Scenes from The Godfather and Mad Men will flutter before your eyes as you lean back, sipping your old fashioned, listening to Casey MacGill croon behind the keys. My date and I came here for dinner before catching a show at The Paramount. Our waiter, Sean, was super fun and took great care of us. The service was quick and noninvasive. The food was wonderful. The drinks were perfect. And the music created the perfect atmosphere for a night out. Simply put: I loved every moment.

Fab 70s meets family-style Italian
The service was excellent, including recommendations and thorough explanations on cocktails and dishes. The food was pretty good, portions were great, and prices were fair. An easy place to get a drink and a meal before an event at Town Hall. Atmosphere was loud, but cozy at the same time. I'd go back again for sure.
