Vince's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria is a popular establishment in Seattle, Washington. The Vince's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria story begins in the most fascinating of all Italian cities, Naples. Enzo (Vince) Mottola & wife Ada were both grew up in the same neighborhood in the heart of Naples. After getting married, they moved to the US, settling in Seattle's Italian neighborhood in 1954. In Italy, Vince had worked at a famous catering company, & like many Neopolitans, had a passion for the food of his hometown. In 1957 Vince & Ada opened their 1st Italian restaurant with Vince manning the kitchen & Ada the tables. Their goals were simple: provide authentic Italian meals at a price that families could afford, just like the neighborhood restaurants & pizzerias of Naples.
