Having spent his early years in Naples, Italy, Vito Scotti was always the choice to play parts as Italian waiters, maitre'ds, and barbers. Vito's family moved back to the U.S. when he was seven. His, mother was a diva in the Italian theatre in New York. It was in the Italian theatre that Scotti developed his gift for farce, which was modeled after the Commedia dell'Arte style of the Italian theatre. He worked the night club circuit doing pantomime and broke into movies and television during the early 1950s. Vito loved cooking, especially the recipes of his beloved mother and grandmother.

  • In addition to his accomplishments as an actor, he was highly regarded as a chef. Two generations of Hollywood's top names always left his dinner parties raving about the food and wine.
  • After living in Naples for a few years as a child, Vito returned to the States when he was seven.
  • Once worked nightclubs as a stand-up magician and mime. On the '60s "The Dick Van Dyke show" he once guested as a house painter who performed magic tricks.
  • Big at playing unsympathetic types such as snobs, loudmouths and bullies, he was known for his resourceful portrayals of various ethnic types. Of Italian heritage, he was seen playing everything from a Mexican bandit and Russian doctor to a Japanese sailor.
