This was an intimate venue to see Pancho. Stayed for both sets and he and his band were tight in the second set. My only complaint was the limited food service in the upstairs room. I had looked online at the menu and wanted dinner not bar food....continued

Our whole evening was really excellent, and we had a great time. I'd heard Pancho on CDs and the radio many times, but this was the first time I'd seen him live. I actually like the long-table seating arrangement, as we met so many nice people. In...continued

Seeing Poncho Sanchez live is always a treat, and this was no exception. This was my first time at Vitello's and I would not hesitate to return. The only drawback was the slightly crowded seating at long tables where some seats have a slightly...continued

I always enjoy Poncho Sanchez and I was pleasantly surprised at the intimate and up close venue. Would definitely return to Vitello's.

What a fun night. I'm not a huge jazz person but my boyfriend is so I went but wasn't expecting much. Those familiar with Pancho Sanchez will not be surprised to hear me say that they far exceeded my expectations. The food, however, wasn't so good...continued

Small, intimate space bringing right next to the artists. Band was great, as always. The performance space was a bit querky; it's an upstairs bar/lounge for a restaurant and is configured for banquet dining.

Another great night with Poncho Sanchez and the band! We took my girlfriend's parents and 9 year old niece and we all had a great time. Poncho took some time out to tell some stories from various tours, recent and in the past. This added a nice...continued

Great show & a great crowd. My girlfriend & I really enjoyed it. We want to see Poncho & the band again soon. Vitello's is a cool place but the food was just OK.

Excellent music, made us want to dance. Only problem was the seating. We couldn't choose where we wanted to sit, and they really crammed a lot of people into a small dining and listening area. A larger venue, with more space would have been...continued

Loved the show. Poncho Sanchez is lively and mixed it up with salsa, cha cha, and old school tunes like Shotgun and Tighten Up. Vitello's is a small, intimate setting so you can see well. The only drawback is that their tables and chairs are...continued

Great music, great intimate venue and a lot of fun. Would have given 5 stars but there should have been a small dance floor for people to dance and maybe another 30 minutes of the show--it was like by the time everyone got into the show, it was...continued

Poncho and his band put on a great show, and we enjoyed the setting at Upstairs at Vitello's. I just wish they offered an expanded menu in the Upstairs setting.

Both me and my wife loved the show. It is a great venue where you are up close to the performers. Fun night of Latin Jazz and Salsa with one of the best.

Very intimate venue. I absolutely loved it. It was my first time at Vitello's, and I was really impressed with the place. The staff was really nice, and the overall ambiance was nice as well. I don't have any complaints about the food, but then...continued

The evening was so much fun! My only regret was that I didn't commit to going until it was too late to gather a group of friends. My one friend & I left the performance totally exhilerated.
