    The food was amazing! The atmosphere was great with the trust, the right amount of Tuscan flare. Highly recommend the ciabatta for an appetizer and Cacio e Pepe as a main course.

    Osterio Via Stato is amazing! Started with the warm ciabatta that was accompanied by roasted garlic bathed in balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. The fork did a wonderful job of turning the roasted garlic into a "buttery-like" spread." Also, the polpettini - 10 to 12 mini meatballs sourced from Slagel Farms beef served in a simple homemade red sauce - was extraordinary. The ciabatra does a nice job of soaking up any excess polpettini red sauce. These two starters paired with a bottle of Sangiovese is perfecto. My table opted for the the penne (recommended by the hostess) and also the housemade fennel sausage pizza. These entrees were shareable. The crisp cracker-thin pizza crust was ample to hold onto the savory fennel sausage and other toppings, but did not overwhelm the superstar toppings. Mushrooms and house peppers were also requested to be added to the fennel sausage pizza...and a side of anchovies. As for the pasta, the creamy tomato sauce married beautifully with the penne. The fresh mozzarella blended wonderfully with the chicken. All ingredients were so harmonius to the palate. The service was very good. Server was attentive, helpful with questions when asked, outgoing and friendly. He (Paul?) shared that he was a law student at Loyola and had been working at Osterio for three months. I highly recommend Osterio Vio Stato to anyone. The atmosphere is amazing. The vibe is relaxed and welcoming. The bar seems to be very accomodating, as well. A great selection of wine, spirits and cocktails for even the most

    First I want to say that the food was outstanding! Our server, Deba was fabulous! The only slight issues we had was the slowness at which the food and beverages came out. Also, the issue was the staff who clear tables between courses. They were very slow to clear things, in one case, bringing next courses while empty plates were still on the table. They brought food out unevenly giving one guest at our table his soup while the rest of the table didn't get theirs for several minutes. Those little things made a difference to our party of 5. But the food was so outstanding and we know it is truly hard for restaurants to serve patrons with the same quality as they did prior to the pandemic. We will keep coming to your restaurant and we hope that service will get better and easier from your end. See you again soon!

    We entertained 2 out of town guests. They enjoyed the ambiance and service. The menu had enough variety that all of us had a delicious meal. The food was fresh and tasty, especially the sea food dishes like the calamari appetizer, and the sea food stew. The food was served promptly, and at a good interval between courses. I highly recommend the Osteria. We have dined there several times in the past and will continue to do so based on their reasonable prices, and as long as the quality is maintained.

    I ate here twice on my most recent visit to Chicago. The food is outstanding (I had the pizza of the month for lunch one day), and the service is impeccable. If you get the chance, try the beef short rib. It was one of the most delicate pieces of beef I have ever had. Sat outside, and this is a busy street, which is fine for people watching. Just be warned, the transients are also perusing the street, and when they can, they panhandle the diners through the barriers. If you can, don't sit next to the barriers.

    Heather set the stage with her wonderful service and recommendations. We ordered the cacio e pepe and the rigatoni. Both were flavorful, not over-sauced (a common problem in many Italian restaurants). We also had the Heirloom Tomato and Burrata salad. With a distinct Roman influence I would love to see that this restaurant could do with amatriciana. Our only complaint is that we ate there on our last evening in Chicago. If we had discovered it early on we would have been "repeat offenders."

Our waitress was great, had good recommendations, answered all our questions, and was so helpful. The food itself was fantastic! I normally have leftovers when I go out to eat but we didn’t leave a single bite at this place, I would absolutely recommend going here and am already planning to come back soon!
