Upcoming Events
After a sad absent spell, Vito’s reopened in the fall of 2010, returned to its old-school Italiano-style glory by Hideout/Vital 5 maestro Greg Lundgren, with dark-red vinyl booths, central bar, a grand piano, and lounge-act entertainers including some great jazz (and never a cover charge). Where mobsters and mayors and priests (and doctors getting smashed and gangstas shooting guns) once convened, a cocktail and a plate of pasta wait for you. The ace bar staff, looking dapper, mix a perfect martini.
