Osteria Via Stato Ratings and Reviews
We were there for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful meal and nice romantic table! We were in a corner by several candles so it was a very nice setting away from all the hustle and bustle of the restaurant given the holiday. Food was wonderful, better than what we've had before! We frequent this restaurant especially for special occasions and get the "dinner party" package all the time. This is probably the best meal we had at the restaurant! They normally do a great job and its always a great value but 2/14 was exceptional. However, I just loved my scallops and gnocchi on 2/14! Hats off to the Chef for such a wonderful job given the volume they were getting that night for V-day! I loved the nice touch of the single rose that they gave to all the ladies coming in that night - thank you! We look forward to having many more meals here in the future!
We enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu during our visit. Short ribs, trout and the vegetarian option were ordered and all were found to be quite good. Each dish contained vegetables along with the entree, which was nice. We also ordered a side of a Brussels sprouts that were nicely browned. There was delicious focaccia in oil, balsamic and softened garlic, as well as olives for the table. We also ordered wine, a Gavi, I believe, that was good enough to order a second bottle. We started with salads and a really good asparagus soup. Dishes arrived a bit too quickly, and we asked that they be better paced and the kitchen/servers complied. I’ve visited this restaurant several times and have found it to be consistently good.
We went to celebrate a birthday but choose Osteria because we love it. We had an amazing experience. The food was delicious and the service was great. They split all the meals in that kitchen that we wanted to actually split. All the food tasted delicious and I would recommend anyone to go here for dinner, whether a casual meal or a special occasion!
The meal started off well even though the waiter informed us that several favorites were recently removed from the menu (beet salad, lentils, Parmesan onion). We ordered our meal no problem and the waiter was great. When the food arrived, it took him a few minutes to come over and check on us. When he finally did, we informed him that our sides (Calabrian potatoes - two orders) were missing. After that, he literally never came back. We were well done with our meal when he showed back up. It was a disgrace. He never came back to see if our potatoes made it, which one order finally did when we were near done with dinner, but not the second. When he ghosted us, we went to tell the manager and his reaction was even worse! He looked at my husband, read off my phone number and said, "Is that your number? I'll call you early next week to discuss this once the craziness of the weekend dies down." The restaurant wasn't even full! It wasn't crazy inside! It's amazing how rude this manager was. LEYE has always prided themselves on great service, but this was the exact opposite. We were such an inconvenience for him. And the manager never came over to see how our dinner was after that either. He also ghosted us. I didn't think it was that big of a deal, but their reaction, or maybe lack of, was beyond insulting.
I thought the food was excellent! The atmosphere was cozy and cute. It had a modern day feel but also the roots of Italy. The caprese salad was my favorite. I had the Penne pasta and it was delicious! I also recommend their Espresso Martini for an after dinner drink. It was a great experience.
We had a delicious meal with friends on New Years Eve. The night’s risotto special was braised short ribs and was rich, creamy and decadent. Fish special was amazing and of course the pasta was homemade and delicious. The service was fantastic. Tina was very attentive and made our dining experience so fun.
Another great meal at Osteria. Not only is the food fantastic but the staff is 100% kind, caring and concerned about my family having a great time. Our server was excellent, there when we needed him, but not intrusive at all. He had great suggestions and added needed input to our menu suggestions. Manager was super friendly, making his way from table to table checking on everyone's meals. It's nice when the manager actually makes the rounds and interacts with the guests. Cocktails were unique and strong - no watered drinks at Osteria. The seasonal cranberry mule was our hands down favorite. Food was all excellent - prosciutto & mozzarella appetizer has a ton of prosciutto, bread and cheese. Almost a meal in itself. Seafood stew was savory, rich and full of fresh seafood. What a great tomato-y sauce. Pastas were rich and creamy and the table favorite was the arrabiata. Mashed potato side item was so rich - - it was the best!!! Some interesting desserts - - the chocolate bar comes with candied orange peel and nuts - - they break up the candy bar and you it all together. Fun and tasty! Definitely a great restaurant. We will definitely visit again. A+
Fabulous! We had the family dinner and could not have asked for a better experience. The food was incredible - especially the potatoes in both the apps and main courses. My beef tenderloin was perfectly cooked and the pasta was perfection. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable while also not crowding us or rushing the meal. An amazing experience.
Absolutely delicious! Everything from the appetizers to entrees! We all loved the food and the ambiance! The atmosphere is rustic and warm and wonderful! We loved everything about our dining experience. We hope to return next time we are in Chicago. We hope it doesn’t change. One note - our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly but needed to come by a bit more often - however, we recognize he was very busy with multiple tables.
I mistakenly reserved this restaurant through OpenTable thinking we had dined there once before. Sadly I was mistaken. I told them we were expecting great Italian food and they said this was the place; however it was crowd food. We ordered the fixed menu for $39. It wasn’t until we got our ticket that I discovered there was an up charge for the fish and steak they were average at best. Had I known I would’ve just ordered off the regular menu the waiter explained it after we got our ticket; he claims he explained it when we ordered. I should’ve read the menu in detail rather than relying on our waiter. The restaurant is in a Hotel with lots of family and children and it caters to that crowd. For a large restaurant it only had one bathroom and if occupied you had to go into the hotel to the second floor passed the swimming pool to get to the public restroom. Anyone wanting a fine dining experience stay clear of this restaurant.
