    While the service was great and the restaurant had a nice, quiet ambiance, the food was unfortunately far below average. My filet was extremely dry (ordered medium-rare, came medium-well) and my fiancees fish had many bones in it.

    Recently dined at Viaggio's for a friend's birthday. It's really hard not to love a place that has exemplary service like Viaggio. Our waiter was energetic, attentive and gave the best recommendations on the menu. The owner/manager also stopped by several times to check on how our group of 6 was enjoying our meal. The young lady serenading the diners was also a nice touch. The food was great and I will definitely be returning (You must try the meatball salad).

    i found this place online and it definitely was a gem. Great neighborhood, great food, and great service. I attended this restaurant for my 4 year wedding anniversary. Some of the finest Italian I've eaten since my travels to Little Italy in NYC. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice romantic dinner.

    Viaggio on Fullerton Parkway has wonderful Italian food . This is a very quanit restaurant with a nice bar. I had the veal ragu and my friend had good old fashioned spaghetti and meatballs> Outstanding with very generous portions. Eddie is an outstanding waiter who is attentive to your every need. The wine list is good especially if you like Italian reds and the cannoli was very fresh. I love this place and go back every time I am in the area. Each night they have someone playing at the piano bar. If noise is an issue for you ask to be seated away from piano bar so it doesn't impact your conversation.

    My boyfriend and I came here the Friday before the 2014 Chicago Marathon. As an Italian, I'm usually very picky about the Italian restaurants I visit but we had heard some really great reviews of this place and figured we would give it a shot. I've also been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, so Italian dining has become especially tricky. Viaggio's exceeded our expectations. The dinner was lovely. The staff was wonderful. There was an upcharge for the gluten-free pasta but it was worth it. Definitely the BEST GF pasta I've ever had. It wasn't mealy and tasted almost exactly like regular pasta. We will definitely be frequenting this restaurant!

    No doubt about it Viaggio is among the best Italian restaurants in the city of Chicago. When we dined there were 7 of us. From the moment we arrived we had a 5 star experience. Each of us ordered something different and everyone at our table felt the food and the service was outstanding, in some cases second to none.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Everything was perfect - except the weather. We would have preferred a table in the little patio in front - next time. The waiter was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and had a great smile! I ordered the salmon and it was perfect. My date had the fish special and loved it. During our meal, one of the owners (Dave) came over to greet us and check on our experience. While the piano player was average, he played an old standard I enjoyed. As we were leaving, he gave me one of his CD's. What a nice touch! We had reservations, and I would recommend it. The restaurant was continually full. The tables in the center are a bit too close together for me, but next time I'll request the lovely booth in the corner.

    We called ahead to say we would be late and had no issues being seated right away on arrival. My wife and I were dressed down for sure as we were going to Club Neo in the neighborhood after diner (goth for sure) and we got the same level of service as expected. We ordered cocktails and they came back tasty and strong. The appetizer of a meatball salad was very good and mail course of the meat platter huge and everything on it cooked and tasted very good. We split both between us and had plenty of food and plenty left over. The waiter even brought me an extra drink that the bartender made for someone else but did not want and gave to me for free. The owner came by and we talked and joked. Everyone very nice and personable.

    We enjoyed our visit, seated on the patio area - being next to Fullerton Parkway is a challenge but the fairly high walls and decorations helped mute the traffic somewhat. The special appetizer (burrata cheese injected with pesto, and grilled cherry tomatoes) was tasty. Chicken piccata was cooked nicely. The sauteed lake perch was more along the lines of fish and chips, as there were five or so strips of fish (had been expecting a filet of fish instead). However the fish was cooked nicely (the garlic mashed potatoes could have used a bit more garlic also). Service was attentive throughout the dinner, although we did have a fairly long wait for the bill (but our server apologized for the wait). Overall a nice dinner.

    I was looking for a restaurant close to Victory Gardens theater and chose Viaggio after seeing them listed on the theater's website with a discount for theater goers. What a great find. I took my mother for her birthday and she loved it. The salmon was amazing. Great wine. Wonderful service. We will definitely return.

    This is some of the best Italian in Chicago, I know there are tons of great places to try like Rosebud's or other places in Little Italy, but this place will blow you away. Everything we had was fantastic, Dover Sole de-boned at your table to the extra spicy diavolo. We will be back for sure. Try to get a table with Eddie, he was fantastic.
