Excellent service. Food and drinks were great and reasonably priced. Patio is very cute and provides a great ambiance for a romantic dinner. Would definitely come back.

I'VE BEEN GOING TO OSTERIA VIA STATO FOR YEARS. I THINK IT'S THE BEST RESTAURANT IN CHICAGO AND CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN.

I am a fairly frequent diner of Osterio via Stato and it's "neighbor" , Pizzeria via Stato. I brought two friends and we ate outside on a Saturday night, with a 6 pm reservation. The food is always good, but the kitchen was slow. The waitstaff was excellent, but clearly getting the food out in a timely manner was beyond what they could do. All in all, however, a very good time had by all!

We came back to Osteria to celebrate our 11th anniversary. We first ate at Osteria for our first anniversary, and we have frequented the restaurant ever since. Though there was a private party going on in the main dining area, we were still offered the main menu in the pizzeria seating area. We sat outside on the patio, and it was perfect. The food still never disappoints. We did the dinner party menu, and it was fabulous. The fresh baked bread and balsamic roasted garlic are still amazing! We were served complimentary champagne for anniversary and the fact we couldn’t eat in the main dining area (though we hadn’t complained). After an amazing meal, we ordered the chocolate bar dessert, and we were also served a tiramisu on the house. It was the best tiramisu my husband and I have ever had! Everything about our meal and overall experience was wonderful. We will always come back to eat here when we visit Chicago!! Our compliments to the chef, and thank you!!

This restaurant was recommended to me by a respected NJ chef and it did not disappoint. I even had another group of 8 cancel their reservation and they loved it as well. The Parmesan Crusted Filet was amazing!

We were running a bit late when trying to make our reservation so we called to extend it. Then upon arrival, we were reminded that we were late by the hostess. Totally get it, but there were plenty of open tables and nobody else seemed bothered by it.

Our server was great - very friendly and suggested a great Cabernet. He kept our drinks and bread full. Also recommended some great food. Everything was delicious!

Would definitely go back.

We dined outdoors on a beautiful evening. The service was a bit slow. The wine we had selected wasn’t available. When we asked for more bread (which was excellent) we had to remind the server twice before it arrived. The four of us chose to split a chopped salad between two and calamari between two. The salad arrived and was excellent. The calamari never arrived. When we saw the server again we asked about it and he seemed surprised it hadn’t been delivered. Within a minute afterwards our main courses arrived. The server checked back and told us the calamari was coming. We declined it since it was suppose to be an appetizer. The angel hair pasta with shrimp was not flavorful and since two ordered it they were disappointed. The veal saltimbocca was good. The ricotta cheesecake was excellent. All-in-all the meal was somewhat of a disappointment. The restaurant was quite busy and the experience might be better when less busy.

I’ve been here several times and have had a great experience. Last weekend was disappointing. The food was very good but the service was horrible! We waited over an hour for our entree without even an apology from our waiter. 6 of the 7 entrees arrived hot and one had to be sent back because it was cold. Our waiter kept disappearing. Again, very disappointing!

Truly an odd experience—some good, some not great. Grossly different size servings of same dish, forgot to plate mash potatoes, vegan attempt at risotto way lacking in flavor. Defensive response from management. I think they are coasting without inspiration based on slow service, presence inside hotel.

We sat outside for a Sunday brunch. Earl was our server. Great guy, very helpful and good nature to interact with. Brunch food was really good. Ricotta donuts outstanding. Will definitely be back. Earl also took the time to introduce us to the Lettuce App. We should have been using this along w/Open Table from the beginning. Thanks again Earl!

This was our first visit to Osteria Via Stato. I had $150 in gift cards so decided to spend it. We ordered the full meal for two. It was a lot of food. Perhaps too much but every dish was delicious. Service was great.

Nice menu but the food quality wasn’t what we expected. But for the price I guess I would say it wasn’t bad. Just not the quality Italian I have come to expect in Chicago.

We always do the dinner party...it is always amazing! Andrea, our server, was wonderful and a true delight! She offered great suggestions for us. We watched so many people try to walk up for a table, to no avail. Make a reservation so you make sure you are able to get in. Really, a wonderful place and someplace we always go when we are visiting Chicago.
