    Our group of four came in for lunch on a Saturday and the food was excellent. The veal meatballs were delicious and the grilled octopus and potatoes were tasty and the pizza was very good. I had a gluten free pasta with mushroom sauce that tasted just like wheat pasta. Our server, Chase was very attentive and the ambiance was warm and welcoming.

    The veal meatballs were a very generous portion, and the Valpolicella wine went well with this dish. We appreciated the quality and price of the food. A large table of drinking men made the restaurant very noisy, but we hope that this will not be the case when we come the next time.

    OK I have lived in Rome for most of my life so I know about Pizza. The pizza at osteria is great. Just the way I like it with a very thin crust like they make it in Rome. This last time it was particularly good. Thank you Chef Edith. Can’t wait to come back.

    If you're looking for a casual Italian restaurant with pizza and a small selection of Italian entrees, this is an awesome place. The food is awesome and so is the service. This time we had JT and he was fantastic! Would recommend it to friends and plan on hitting it the next time we're in Chicago.

    The pizza was good. The waiter brought us 3 wine samples so ask to try a new wine if your not sure what to order. We had bread with garlic and oil, grilled octopus and the veggie pizza. All good. The only downside was we were sat next to the door leading out to the patio. It was very disruptive and we should have asked to move as there were plenty of open tables. The host staff should seat that table as a last resort.

    We live a block away so we visit multiple times a year but sometimes they get overwhelmed and cant deliver the typically good experience. This was one of those times - took forever to get a waitress, loyalty points not recorded, seated by a service door to the patio which was constantly banging / letting out the aircon.

    This used to be my go to place, took many of my friends over and recommend it to all my friends and family. I returned to Pizzeria Via Stato on Saturday to find that the service and quality has changed drastically. Our server informed us that the Prosciutto Americano Pizza had been removed from the menu, but the chalk board in the restaurant was still displaying this item. I ordered a wine from the menu, our server came back to notify me, that they did not have the wine I ordered. The ricotta cheesecake now is half of the size it used to be. I ordered the Quattro formaggi and I was very disappointed, it was very greasy. It is very clear that this restaurant has changed owners or management recently, and the new management team has a lot of room for improvement. I will not return to Pizzeria Via Stato.

    We had a reservation for 9pm. Once the hostess seated us with menus, it took 10 minutes until someone (the hostess) came to bring us water. It took 25 mins for someone to come over and take our drink / appetizer order and another 15 mins after that until our (1) drink was delivered. The pizza is so good, but the service is just terrible every time we go there.. there seemed to be plenty of waitstaff and there were plenty of tables still open, so they weren’t full by any means. If this had been the first time, I would have given it a pass but over the past few years, I have gone at least a half dozen times and each time the service seems to be even worse.

    We had a party of 10 for pizza and drinks. Our table was up against a register/wait stand..., and just across from the sole bathroom (more in the hotel next store). Service was very good and the pizza (the important part) was good but not great.
