We hadn't been to Via Carducci in a long time. We were very happy to know it's as good as ever. The food was delicious. The outdoor patio made us feel safe. We plan to carry out once it's too cold to outside
Great food, environment, and energy. The only downside to our night was our server. He was rushed and rude at times. All other interactions between servers and guests seemed incredible! We must just have gotten him on a bad night. We will try again because the food was worth it.
So wonderful! Favorites were the lobster ravioli, shrimp pesto risotto and the tiramisu! Staff was very attentive as well and it was a pleasure meeting the owner.
Will definitely be back.
Excellent service and great food
It was my friends birthday. Everything was great other than one of the waiters tried to add an extra $100 to the bill.
Again, this is the best Italian - southern or otherwise - restaurant in Chicago.
Santa Lucia Rotini is on point.
Really good Italian cuisine in a very cozy room. I love this restaurant!
We love it here but generally go early in a Friday. They were doing a great Valentines wkd business We enjoyed our meal and all the friendly faces. There was one large party that took up most of the mid section of the restaurant. We had trouble navigating around them but staff did their best to make it all work.
It was awesome!! So delighted with the overall experience. Food was wonderful, proportions were great, and very affordable. Get the bruschetta! Huge variety of food option to pick from. Will definitely go again!
Via Carducci is the best italian restaurant around. If you want real authentic italian, this is your best bet in the Wicker Park/West Town area. Quality visits and quality meals each and every time we are there. Thank you for your service! We will be back soon.
This place is my fiancé and my favorite spot. Start with mussels and sausage/peppers and then the lobster ravioli. Oh and tiramisu for dessert. The staff is always friendly and we love the vibe. Feels very authentic. As if you strolled into a restaurant on the streets of Rome. Great for date night!
VC is my go to ! Excellent every time 2-3 times a week. Food and Service exemplary! I love this restaurant and bring my friends , family and colleagues all the time ! Thank you , Danny
Carlos was amazing! Will be back soon and request him each time
Overall, the experience at this restaurant was alright. We made a reservation, but were still made to sit in the overflow seating, which was basically a closet. The service was fair, but not what you would expect for $50 bottles of wine and $25 entrées. If we were sat in the main seating area and the service were better, it would be four stars.
You're always going to be pleased going here. The staff are friendly and helpful and the chef consistently hits a home run.
Christmas Eve dinner
Eight of us
We ordered from every part of the menu
Ordered specials too -Lobster Risotto was superb
And leave it to my daughter to even ordered items not on menu or specials - it was best and we had some to take home.
The filet had a perfect char, tenderness and smooth as butter texture. Someone else did the meatball & eggplant sides - excellent choice.
Warm inviting atmosphere, very competent service.
Great spot on a special night with family & friends.
Great ambience, service and excellent food and wine.
Everytime is always a great experience. Every food choice is fresh and tastes delicious. Greatest Italian restaurant in town!
Wonderful Date with my Lovely Wife ! Thank you
Food is always really good. My only complaint is that the tables are very small so if you plan to order appetizers, there really is no space for everything.
Casual conversation spot with delicious food.
Went for dinner early on a Sunday night after the theater. It was two adults and two kids. We were placed at an of the way table that was shoved into a corner by the window. Server was nice but hostess was rude when told about washroom door not locking. She blew it off and acted like we didn’t know what we were talking about. Then I heard her and saw her tell someone who worked there and she was laughing about it and making fun of the situation. So terrible. They have zero portions for kids and are not family-friendly which is a shame. Everything tasted good but we were forced to order a 12in pizza for a six year old because no options for anything smaller. Not sure how this could be in a neighborhood that is family friendly. Anyway, it was embarrassing to be treated like that by the hostess and I will not return.
I love Via Carducci. We randomly stumbled upon this hidden gem in Wicker Park looking for a place to eat or night and couldn’t resist the smells. So when I had to decide where to have my birthday dinner this year, this was my pick. Great ambiance, low key and amazing food. It’s authentic and portions are very generous.
Food is delicious and top-quality. Service is always at the perfect pace.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant!!
Everything was fantastic! The food was absolutely delicious - both my husband and I finished our whole plate! Everyone we encountered was so friendly and the environment was upbeat, authentic, and comfortable.
Have been there several times. Eggplant parm was very tender and tasty. Portion size is generous. Smaller restaurant with very energetic vibe.
I’ve been going to Via Carducci for 13 yrs and never been disappointed. Food is very tasty , always fresh and flavorful - Calabrian style in Wicker Park!
Be prepare for pretty big portions!
Prices are very reasonable ...
Highly recommended for any occasion!!!
Excellent date spot. Great ambience, good food, and not at all too noisy.
My fiancé and I were looking for a local spot to go to with her parents. The food was classic homemade Italian. We were especially impressed with the two salads we ordered to share as starters. The tables are pretty close together but is pretty typical for a small local spot. I recommend this spot, especially if you live walking distance!
main dining area, lovely... food, delicious... SIDE dining area, a little tight (just a hallway)
Via Carducci blends warm service, delicious food, and a comfortable, neighborhood vibe into something wonderful. A great place to become a “regular.”
This is a very good restaurant with a wonderful ambience in a fantastic location with very nice people.
Great appetizers, wine and dinner! Love this place and can’t wait to come back. The chicken saltimbocca is tremendous!
Love the place. Service was bad this particular night. Both orders were wrong. He told me he could fix it but it would take another 25 minutes... for a side of pasta...
one of our favorites! ❤️
All pastas are great..never had anything else.
