Here´s a video that show many other combos and melee weapons. Dan Vavra even mentioned that Vito will be able to grab a chair and fight with it in pubs.
As you can see there were many melee weapons and Vito was even able to pick up most of the stuff on the ground or a chair to throw(Daniel Vavra mentions this in one developer diary).
Remains of this can be found in the game code:
00_50_00_0227: Lift chair 00_50_00_0228: Pick an object
