Vito's Restaurant & Lounge

Vito’s is an iconic 21 and over restaurant and lounge located on First Hill. Opened in 1953, it has a history rich in cocktail culture, organized crime and east coast, family style Italian food.

In April of 2010, Jeff Scott and Greg Lundgren purchased this Seattle institution and began a major restoration of the space. Their goal is to return Vito’s to the glamor and style of the 1950s, respect its colorful past and set the course for a 21st-century resurrection. Over the years the club has fallen into disrepair and poor alterations. They have replaced the dance floor with a performance space centered around a grand piano, with lounge singers, jazz trios and Lynchian curiosities that will dazzle and entertain into the early morning.

"I was looking forward to having dinner here......thought the old school ambiance would be interesting. Our server was less than attentive and the food average. The antipasti plate was had very average cured meats though the pickled veggies were good. I thought the dressing on the caesar salad was tart and odd. The spinach side reeked of garlic from a jar. I did enjoy the scallops which I was told by our server come from Taylor Shellfish. Preparation was good but too much salt. All in all it was a disappointing experience. But the restaurant was packed (Saturday evening) and many reviews are excellent; so maybe just an off night?"

"We have enjoyed Vito's for years. Great Italian menu and relaxed atmosphere. They have a variety of music - mostly good jazz. One of the things we like is that you can actually carry on a conversation with someone. The reasonable cost and fine entertainment make it a very good value."

"Recommended by a friend as it was near their hotel we met at Vito's. Checked the website first and found some very interesting vintage photo's of Italian men of a certain age scrolling across the top. Not sure about the vibe they were trying to create but we enjoyed the old photos and the gold chains. The decor was as stated, 50's steak place, very cool. Hostess, very nice and when my friend asked for a Dark and Stormy she assured us the bartender made a great one. She was right. Caesar salad was a deconstructed grilled whole head of romaine. Seen it before but, the spin of whole pickled not salted anchovy fillets was a major plus. Every meal was superb, scallops, veal and vegetarian fettucine, we covered all the bases. Dessert, gelato with a small ewer of espresso to pour over it and a medeira. Overall, excellent food. It was Saturday night so when the jazz band started we had to leave as conversation was difficult. We will be back. Check the website vibe and then you will understand the title of my review. Super place."

"Drove by this restaurant many times last summer and always wondered about it. Very unassuming from the outside. Almost looks "closed". But low and behold, it is in fact been open forever. My wife and I decided to give it a try. It is perhaps the darkest restaurant I've ever been in. Lots of red leather and old school charm. Live entertainment....think 70's night club scene. But this is about the food. The bruschetta appetizer is the BEST I'VE EVER HAD. My wife concurred. I had the spaghetti Bolognese and my wife boxed up her flatbread when it hit the table and ordered another order of the bruschetta as her entrée. Did I mention that the bruschetta was really, really good? The menu is simple but well rounded. The cocktails are unusual, but tasty. Try the Spanish Leather if you like a little kick! Can't wait to go back."

"Vito's has the old Italian Restuarant atmosphere and menu. The service is great, and even excellent suggestions from the menu. The lasagna and the fairfalle diavlolo tasted as anticipated. Good selection of wine. The background music is a little loud, and the dining room is very dim. But, the dining experience was pleasant and reminded you of the past."

"Comfortable and pleasing place with a retro vibe. Somewhat limited menu with limited pasta dishes (for an Italian restaurant), but we enjoyed our dishes: Pork Chop and Surf and Turf. They have entertainment, but the sound system is not too good."
