Vitos is the block away. Trule a throw back lounge. Can see why we were told this was a mob hangout years ago. Great happy... More

Vito's is a cool old style bar with live music. The band playing was very good and fitted perfectly into the bars ambiente. Prices are moderate. A reservation was not necessary, there where less people than expected and the entry was free.

This is a fun jazz bar with live music and great Italian food. Make sure to get reservations for nights with live music, otherwise you can sit at the bar or stand. The staff was very friendly and the bartender made amazing drinks. I would definitely go back here if I'm ever in Seattle again.

Attended a concert at the Town Hall and all the nearby restaurants were full. We ended up having antipasto platters at the bar. It was good but we didn't have enough time to have a meal so the circumstances were less than ideal. The bartender was our server.

Went here 4 times in 6 days while in Seattle. Staying at the Hotel Sorrento and found this great place within walking distance. Loving the food and the music. Had a salad with a side of meatballs - just the BEST!. Very friendly staff!

Vito's is a great local Italian restaurant with outstanding entertainment most nights. Pasta is fresh and gravy is wonderful.

Two blocks from Renaissance hotel, an easy walk. Old school Italian restaurant, with early 60's feel. Pasta, steaks, seafood all respectable, no trendiness here! Music many nights.

We ate here because we saw live music advertised, so we booked a time around that and wandered (climbed) up the hill to the restaurant from the water. Turns out, the particular artist wasn't playing -- apparently she's elderly and often cancelled, but we stayed for dinner anyway. The atmosphere is dark, but not in a particularly romantic way.

I knew from when I first entered that there was a great sense of tradition here. The menu is everything one would expect. Many patrons seemed to know each other and were familiar with the piano player. We had a delightful meal and enjoyed the feel of this place. It was the perfect and unpretentious way to end our Seattle... More
