The halibut was crispy on the outside and moist & flaky on the inside. Attentive service staff.
Portions which were very good not as generous as other Italian restaurants
My only criticism, and this is just a matter of personal taste, too much salt. It didn't ruin my enjoyment of the risotto, but I would definitely not use so much salt in my own cooking. It was intrusive. That aside, I really enjoyed the meal and plan to come back again.
Osteria via Stato is an amazing restaurant. We have dined there a number of times and it is always excellent. This most recent time, our server Earl, was outstanding. He truly made the dining experience at Osteria via Stato memorable. Chef David assures all courses are prepared to the highest standards, ingredients are always fresh. Excellent experience - would highly recommend this restaurant.
The host and host were very welcoming and promptly showed us to our table. Our server, Andrea was knowledgeable, attentive and so very personable. The wine recommendations were spot on and the food was flavorful. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!
The food was good and the service attentive.
What I did not like was the night of illness afterwards: avoid the risotto!
Had an early dinner reservation after “Sound of Music’. I casually mentioned to our server, Earl, that we hadn’t been there in a long time but remembered a special dish. Next thing we know, the chef was at our table asking if he could create a special pasta. After the delicious appetizers of calamari and veal meatballs, out came the pasta, cauliflower & kale dish with a crunchy breadcrumb topping. Made me float into the air!! Great experience! Can’t wait to go back.
Had a wonderful risotto and Caesar salad. Great Value!
Great! We love the ricotta donuts
My wife and I ate there for her birthday before seeing a show in the Theatre District. The service was great, our waiter was always at our table at the right time. We probably asked dumb questions about the menu, and acted like novices ordering wine, but he was very courteous and helpful. He even deftly handled his response when we told him which show we were seeing. The food was good and served in a timely manner. We were able to leave our car with valet until after the show which was nice. It is certainly walkable to the district if you want to skip on the cab ride.
Food was great and so was the service. Would go back.
We loved it! Our server Matt was excellent. He really knew his red wines. The Pre Fixe menu was amazing. So Much food for the price. The fish, beef and short ribs were all superb. The carrots were beyond! Can’t wait to go back!
Nice Italian restaurant with good food and reasonable prices for the area. Attractive dining room. Service staff a bit overzealous in clearing tables to turn them. You get rushed if you want to take your time.
Great food, reasonably priced. Nothing particularly surprising but well executed Italian food.
2nd time here, the sea bass was wonderful! Waiter was friendly and nice. Great piano player/singer. Will be definitely come back.
The Easter brunch was outstandingly! Great food, cocktails and service. We can't wait to return!
It was good however I do not apparently understand what segment of Italian dining they represent so it was difficult to make dining selections.
Great pizza. Meatball appetizers were fantastic.
Love it every time we come!
Maybe some of the best Italian I’ve ever had. Ingredients tasted fresh. Combining Italian with midwestern food supplies, great combination. The next time I’m in Chicago, I will definitely go back.
I LOVE this place!!
This is my new go to for delicious Italian. The roasted garlic in oil is amazing! The marinara sauce is very tasteful! Pasta and seafood done perfectly! The restaurant itself is so beautiful. The wait staff are very personable, they make you feel at home and never rush you at any point of the meal. Earl is my fav! Excellent experience and will definitely go back! Super impressed- I have told several friends already!! Plus its a Lettuce Restaurant! Bonus!
Great food. Good service. The Italian cuisine was very well done. The Black Old Fashioned was one of the best I’ve had. Highly recommend the restaurant and drink. Pizza there the next day was just as wonderful.
We keep going back because they rock
Meatballs and grilled octopus..can't lose
Scallops tonight were so unique and light and delightful
It was our anniversary and the service took time to note that
Love this place
The Italian Dinner Party is a great value. The food is fresh, delicious and plentiful. All of the dishes were outstanding. My wife and I shared the Bring Me Wine option in which we were brought 4 different glasses of wine during the evening. Our waiter, Mark, was friendly and helpful, which made the evening even better. He recommended that we try our leftover risotto for breakfast topped with a poached egg, we took his advice and it was fabulous!
Excellent authentic Italian cuisine. Celebrating our son’s 21st birthday with the Italian dinner party. Excellent wine list and plenty of options decided to bring our own to celebrate the special occasion only charge a $20 corkage fee. Highly recommend having been here multiple times in the last six months. Certainly look forward to our next visit and will stop in once again.
This restaurant is loud. And the push a lot of tables into a very small area. It’s not romantic at all.
Perfect ... great waiter!
All of our food was delicious!! The service was great. Oh and the warm bread with olive oil and garlic for starters is AMAZING!
This restaurant was incredibly busy the night I ate there. The waiter was very nice but he had his hands full hence 4 stars. The food was terrific. Everything was superb and served in perfect portions. They don't lie when they say they have great desserts too. The ricotta cheesecake is worth the calories. I'll be returning.
we had to wait 40 min for our table to be set up. we were seated at 9:10 even tho our reservation was at 8:30. server was not very attentive throughout dinner. poor experience.
Food was great-
The waitress was rude...
Also, the reservation mentioned-
we were celebrating a birthday..
Unfortunately, not a word was mentioned..
Just disappointing, server did not seem to want us there and the food did not match the price tag. It was just fine!!
OVS never disappoints!!!
Brought our in laws who were experiencing Chicago for the first time. Our server, Chris, was very knowledgeable, polite, confident, and personable. The wait staff was also very attentive as we never had a water glass go empty. The food was wonderful, as usual.
This restaurant is fantastic! During the week, our reservation went from nine people to 12 people to 10 people and, at the last minute, back to 12 people. We were flexible and willing to break up the party or to keep it at 10 if they could not accommodate the extra two people. They were so gracious to get us set up and in on time. The food was extraordinary, as usual. The chef was extremely attentive to one guest who had a severe food allergy. And the server was really great (I wish I could remember his name). Overall, 5 stars and can’t wait to go back.
We had a family dinner before going to see Hamilton. The 4 of us all LOVED our entrees. My husband and son both had the short ribs, my daughter the risotto special and I had the scallop special. Everything was delicious. Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional.
Great food, great service, we will be back!
Everything really good...food and service. All well prepared, authentic Roman style pizza ...terrific.
Food was very good, wine was well paired and great service.
