Food was amazing

Service was ordinary at best

There was a party so it was a little loud

38.00 for chicken is a little pricy

Upon arrival, I was told I requested an "outside" table. I did not! The manager stated, "something must have happened on the Open Table app". From the start, the service was lacking. We repeatedly, requested ice for our water and when it finally arrived, it was in a tall glass. When I asked for a spoon to retrieve the ice, we were given a fork.

One of my guests asked if her Branzino could be prepared without onions, she was told the chef could not accommodate her request because this dish is prepared in advance. Really? She ordered it anyway and planned to pick out the onions, herself.

As it started to rain my guests and I had to physically, lift and move our own table under the umbrella. Unfortunately, the water poured down from the umbrella and soaked the back of my suit jacket as I sat there.

The truth is that the Branzino al Cartoccio and the Porcini Rubbed NY strip steak were excellent and very tasty and I would absolutely, recommend these dishes. I would offer that recommendation with a caution regarding expectations of good service.

My mom, sister and I went to Viaggio this week. We haven't been there in over a year. Well we weren't surprised that the food was outstanding. The three of us had pasta dishes and each one was delicious. Our waiter, Sam, was was wonderful; very attentive and getting us whatever we needed. The only complaint is the comfort of the chairs. They just aren't comfortable. Other than that, it was wonderful.

Used to love this place. Food was extremely salty. Extremely expensive. Almost like the chef had Covid and lost his sense of taste. Will never go back.

The food was delicious but our pasta, the bucatini was super salty.
I understand pancetta and parmesan are salty, but hen the chef should not salt to the extent this dish was. It was still good, just needed to drink extra water the remainder of the night. Cioppino was superb

The food was truly amazing. The flavors were complex, everything was cooked perfectly, and the ingredients were extremely fresh. The only thing I could say that I expected and didn’t get was crispy skin on either fish, but both were still absolutely delicious. The octopus was some of the best I’ve ever had, and we order it every time we see it on the menu. The service was okay, it just didn’t match the fine dining level of the food.

We’ve been loyal, enthusiastic lovers of Viaggio for years and didn’t believe it when friends told us it had gone down hill in the last few months as Robby was spending his time at his new restaurant in Westwood but we’re extremely disappointed last night. The normally great food was poor and one of our favorite entrees, the linguini with white clam sauce was close to inedible. The normally great, friendly service was poor and instead of the enjoyable fine dining experience we were accustomed to they basically speed fed us and we were out in just a little over an hour.

It’s sad but we won’t be going back to a place we had even made to be our family Christmas Eve tradition.

We had a great time sitting inside and enjoyed their unique dishes. My favorites were the calamari, the ramp butter pasta and the ny strip. Every thing was cooker perfectly and tasted delicious.

What a great place! Coming from Seattle, we were hard pressed to find something a little more elevated in this area and Viaggio did not disappoint. The calamari was impeccable, the pasta was perfectly cooked and we enjoyed the panna cotta and affogato for dessert. It seemed like most of the staff was pretty new but for the most part it went smoothly. Will definitely dine here again next time we’re in town.

I think the noise was mostly due to families since we were eating early. The noise wasn’t overwhelming and the food and service more than made up for it!

We shared 2 appetizers. The Octopus was charred perfectly and delicious. The Burrata was the best we've ever had. I had the pasta special in a rague sauce and my wife had the pasta special with ramparts. They were both outstanding! Viaggio never disappoints.

First time back since the pandemic started. Happy to see the quality of the food remains outstanding. Sorry to see that they are no longer serving focaccia. Wait staff were attentive, polite and efficient. Appetizers, entrees and dessert were all nicely presented and delicious. A bit pricey but well worth the money for the experience.
Will be returning regularly.
