The portions are extremely small for the price. It was odd that they were paying attention to many of the other tables but not us. Had to ask twice for bread. Left hungry.

Viaggio continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. Each dish is consistently fresh & delicious. The homemade pastas are extraordinary. We were happy they still have outdoor dining. Our server Sebastian & the rest of the crew were efficient & attentive. We had another terrific night at Viaggio!

The Service was impeccable with constant attention to our dining experience. The food was amazing and everything was fresh. It is on the high end of the price curve but well worth it considering the experience

Given the price-point (on the pricey side), I would call Viaggio a "special occasion" restaurant, but a good one. When the restaurant is full, it can be loud. But the food is always delicious and made with great care and flair.

Fabulous food - very impressed! Loved the squash blossoms & calamari especially. Excellent, knowledgeable server - Sam -and support staff. Only issue are uncomfortable chairs and all hard surfaces so high noise level. Wish they were in Monmouth county!

Was very much looking forward to enjoying Viaggio after two local chefs had recommended in NJ Monthly magazine. We arrived and were warmly greeted, however, as we were led to our table noticed that the restaurant was quite crowded, which didn't feel good (Delta variant etc.).
Great server, lovely menu, restaurant was very warm (we all mentioned it after awhile) which affected the enjoyment of the meal, food service was rushed (and with three Italians at the table who are interested in enjoying a leisurely meal - it was a bit off putting). The check was delivered immediately after the coffee, and the server came back twice to collect it before we had even finished our dessert/coffee. That felt odd!
Great food, but this restaurant has an opportunity.

Service was great, the server was awesome, the food was meh. Perhaps I should have stuck with pasta. I had the steak, it was under seasoned and over sauced with what seemed similar to a mole and it didn’t bring much to the party. With the sauce, potatoes and steak the overall look of the plate was a very unappealing rainbow of brown and that’s a pretty good description of the flavor as well. It was a disappointment. My wife had fish which was cooked well but, once again, the sauce was overpowering. A great piece of fish might as well have been a tofu-burger because all you could taste was tomato and fennel.

All of this followed by the bill which made me forget it’s BYOB. I’m fine paying high prices for a main course, but it’s deflating when the check comes and you immediately start thinking about what else you could have bought with the money and you just feel bummed.

It’s hard finding a non chain restaurant in Wayne, but it’s not worth settling. I won’t be going back.

Owner does not tell you that he is charging a 4% Credit Card Processing Fee. They just stick it on the bill. So if you don’t bring $300 cash you are left paying this erroneous charge.

Very sheisty/sneaky way of adding 4% to your check. Never seen this before at any restaurant

Location is a strip mall. Staff was working to make it a great experience. The food was sub par. Lacking flavor and depth. They are on the correct tract but need a bit more fine tuning for me to come back.

Was our first time at this establishment but won't be our last. Food and service were excellent. So many wonderful flavors in the food ordered: I had the barnegat bay scallops and my spouse had the cacio e pepe as our main course. Also very much enjoyed the roasted beets and calamari fritti as appetizers. This is a BYOB so we had our choice of prosecco. Had no "room" for dessert!
Our dinner did not break the bank so we'll definitely be back and not just on a special occasion. Only negative was the choice of music at dinner. Rock music is not my personal choice to listen to during dinner. We did ask if the music could be changed - the volume was simply lowered.
