My food was over sauced and definitely sitting under a warmer for way too long. The sauce was think and congealed when it was delivered.

Went here for date night and it was great. Our waitress Makenzie was amazing. She was attentive and informative. She described the dinner special and made it sound amazing. I heard another waitress describing the dish to her table, and had I heard that explanation I wouldn’t have gotten it. She recommended the calamari and peanut butter semifeddo and both were very good. Octopus and prosciutto were also good. BYOB is always great. Will return and hopefully get Makenzie again!

Delicious, authentic food. Appetizers, pastas, main course were fabulous!
Dessert menu should be changed. Peanut butter dessert in an Italian restaurant? Disappointing.

Our server was so friendly, understood and could explain all menu items, and the overall service was detailed and timely. The food was fresh, hot, and delicious. I would highly recommend this place for someone who likes a lively restaurant with great food ( as it was busy the entire time we were there)!

Viaggio Ristorante is excellent in every way, from food to staff , it truly is fine dining in Wayne area which is hard to find. You can definitely tell everything they do is from the heart. Our waitress was phenomenal too! This is our second time here and we had her both times. She knows everything about the menu and explains and answers all your questions you may have. The food is to dye for everything on the menu is explosive in taste. Lastly it’s byob , what’s not to like!?

Food is very good. Portions small for the price and they push out appetizers and dinner back to back. I don’t like to be rushed during dinner.

Delicious inventive Italian. Very fresh ingredients and house-made pasta, gellato, cure their own meats. Not super pricey for quality— pastas in $22-$28 range. Lots of specials. Not too much for vegetarians... pretty meat centric. Server very friendly and extremely descriptive about everything. Atmosphere nice enough...rustic/relaxed. A bit noisy.

It’s a very open space. Not warm and cozy. The food is very inventive but extremely overpriced for a north jersey byo. The food was served room temp. And the meats were dry. The sides were the winners. The whole atmosphere was a little pretentious.

It was our first time and our waiter Jonathan went over the entire menu with us. We ordered food that we never would have if it wasn’t for all the information he gave us. I also have a food allergy and he made sure I knew what food had nuts and which ones could be served without nuts. Service was great. Josh at the front was very welcoming and stopped to chat with us. We will definitely come back!

Food was absolutely amazing. From the calamari to the pork argh cavatelli to the flourless chocolate torte. Couldn’t recommend Viaggio more! The food is absolutely delicious, the ambiance is perfect and it’s great to the see the chef’s smiling face around! Like I said to my fiancé, you would never guess that this restaurant would be in a strip mall in Wayne, should be in the middle of Manhattan!!

Beautifully decorated dining room - loved the open kitchen. The wait staff is beyond phenomenal. The food quality and preparation is unique to this area-five star flavors and tastes cooked to perfection. Generous portions - the only downside is that it is very pricey. We will come again but only for a special occasion. Maybe we can have a wayne restaurant week?! Early bird specials?

My husband and I went for Valentine's Day dinner. Our reservation was honored within ten minutes which considering the evening was a plus. The food was good, but certainly not outstanding considering all the hype the restaurant gets in the news. Dinner was New York prices which we knew going in, but the service was mediocre at best. We had to ask for the water and wine to be poured - not very attentive for that kind of money. I'm not sure we would go back. There are certainly are other restaurants with better food and much better service for that price.
