Vito's Restaurant & Lounge
It is ok, overall, especially for folks attending Town Hall events. However, they seem to have only creamy soups, and an Italian restaurant should be serving Minestrone. Also, it is way too dark; I almost tripped going into the restaurant and also coming out of the restroom...lighten it up!!
Great old-style neighborhood Italian restaurant with surprisingly good food, great bar and fun atmosphere.
Food was average. Very noisy, you could hardly hear the piano player
I've been to Vito's once before and I was very impressed with the food, service, history, and overall vibe, and ambiance. This night, I celebrated my bday. Again another great experience and the live entertainment gave me a shout out and dedicated a song to me after my server brought me a surprise treat with a candle. Great place for an intimate date, after 5, host a business prospect, and more. I never leave reviews but I really like this place. Get the fillet mignon. Yassssss.
The food and service are consistently good. It is a warm atmosphere. The owners and staff are always very friendly.
Time Warp! great food, music, drinks and service. Hadn't been there in 30 years. they kept the good parts and fixed all the tired. Give it a try! I'll be going back.
Vito's has excellent food and entertainment if you like good music. We went to hear Jovino Santos Neto, Brazilian pianist/composer and all around great musician. Their beef version of osso buco is excellent. Everyone liked their meals of pizza and spaghetti as well. It's a fun relatively inexpensive place without the added cost of a cover charge. Thank you, Vito's!
We had a great time. Food was wonderful - enjoyed the pianist-great atmosphere. We plan on becoming regulars.
Fabulous atmosphere, delicious food, great service, wonderful music. So fun!!
Vito's has unique ambience. Excellent food, wine and service. Great spot for a date night. All was great except the in a line tables are a bit too close to each other. Yes I will come back and recommend this restaurant!
What a great restaurant, a throw back to the Golden age of Italian dining. Felt just like I was in the mafia. Can't believe I've lived in Seattle since 1998 and am trying this place for the first time just now!
Very noisy. Good live jazz but it couldn’t compete with the loud crowd which was disappointing.

The food is nothing to get excited about, but the drinks, music and ambiance make it a perfect evening.
I love the dark, swanky, but casual vibe.
Great food and they don’t gouge you on the price. Highly recommend.
Really impressed with the service and accommodations made for our reservation. Really impressed and grateful, thank you for an awesome date night out! We will be back with more friends!
I love Vitos! Such a great place to take friends, enjoy music and great food. Stephanie always takes such amazing care of us. Great wine, amazing (proper!) martinis and their lasagna is one of my favorite dishes ever.
I honestly hate to disparage someone’s business.... But this place is pathetic. Old, tired, dingy and terrible uninspiring food. Why keep it open? Obviously the owner doesn’t care about this restaurant.
CALL GORDON RAMSAY...!
Entertainment is really good but there were more “bar flies” than eating customers. Very sad.
Fix it or close it...! Sorry to say.
How about your rename your 'noise level' meters from 'energetic' to 'NEEDS SOUND DAMPENING SO I CAN HEAR THE DAMN BAND". Sure. Vitos is a classic.. Food was fab.. Drinks are fab. Service was top notch.
But if you're going to have live musicians trying to play jazz where people are supposed to be listening, then do SOMETHING about treating the ceiling, or booking band events separately.. Otherwise just use prerecorded music.. it's an insult to musicians.
Overall, a great experience. I was part of the Vito’s crowd back in the 1980s and had not been back since. Lots of remodeling since then, but all to the good. More open. Loved seeing the pictures of the people I remember, including Vito, still up on the walls. What I ordered was awesome, however my wife was a little disappointed in hers, as it was supposed to have crab in itand we sure didn’t see any.
Vito’s is a gem! It is an awesome throwback to the 50’s with its dark atmosphere, engaging patio player and wonderful martinis and pasta. We had a memorable night and would definitely return.
Nice place for dinner with friends or a date spot. Definitely more of a date spot later in the evening when they start to play live music. The drinks were okay but just not our style. Opting for the wine is a safe bet.
What a fantastic find in Capitol Hill. Food is great, music is great, and service was fantastic. Go and eat there you will not regret it
Food was excellent. Fun atmosphere. Great service. Fantastic spot!!
Everything is great about this restaurant except the piano is just loud enough that it's difficult for a party of four to have any sort of a conversation. Great food. Excellent value.
Vito's never disappoint. Great food and amazing service
Great Italian food and unique ambience. Would be wonderful on a cool rainy day or anytime your in the mood for geat Italian food. Nice wine list too.
I had last been at Vito's in the 90s when it was just a little tired but still eminently cool. The place has been polished up and is just vibrating with retro vibes! It's unlike anything in Seattle. The food was delicious, the prices were reasonable and the service was great. I can't wait to go after dark for a cocktail!
A good, old, neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food is fabulous, as is the service--even if they won't tell me which spices go into that great Italian sausage they serve. I eat at Vito's whenever circumstances drag me into Seattle. Wouldn't miss it.
Restaurant was fairly dark and hard to see / read menus. Water server spilled water across the table multiple times and didn't have adequate towels to clean up - using the nonabsorbent table napkins.
We have already recommended Vito’s to our friends. The food was excellent and the staff went above and beyond to meet some special requests.
Vitos has unique atmosphere. Feels like you are stepping back in time for not only a classy experience but a total taste experience! My husband and I came here when we were married and came all the way back from Utah just to eat here again! Well worth it! The cannoli is OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Always love Vito's
A typical Capitol Hill crowd of mixed professionals enjoy good Italian cuisine with good music and ambiance. The margarita pizza appetizer was awesome and the chicken parmesan was very good. Plenty of food. The drinks were good, the scotch pour was a little small, but overall everything was great.
This was a really good place to meet friends and have dinner, and enjoy some good jazz along the way. I'll certainly be back to try the rest of the menu!
Enjoyed the experience. Only commemt on food is the house salad seemed to need more flavor or dressing, otherwise food was good and enjoyed the 50's mobster ambiance.
I love this place! Excellent drinks. Good value happy Hour. The ambiance is amazing! Family Italian food minus the family. Not gourmet, old standbys that satisfy. A really good value for Downtown Seattle, white table cloths and all.
