OpenTable Diner (Chicago)
1.0  Dined on February 14, 2018

It was Valentine’s Day .Didn’t have a sitter so we came here with our two eleven year old kids. We were seated in the middle to the entrance of the room. Every time one of of the staff came by they would brush my chair. I guess a table near the washroom wasn’t available. Our waitress must of been upset she had to work, she never smiled once all evening. Not once did she come ask us about our meal or anything. The busboy and other staff came by to check on us. They seemed pleasant. When it came time to pay the bill our waitress reappeared and figuratively threw the check at us . It was like I had a highly contagious incurable disease.
I’ve had much better service at McDonald’s . Maybe it was an off night. I will never know because I will never go there again.

The food was great but the dessert was mind blowing! The semifreddo, mousse, soufflé, panna Cotta, and cannoli was amazing. Kudos to the pastry chef!

ALWAYS delicious food! We always feel welcome there. Creative seasonal items. Via Veneto is a favorite of ours and we try to get there when we are in town.

We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving meal at Via Veneto. The staff, including the owner, was welcoming, seated us promptly, and made sure everyone received attentive, efficient and personal service throughout. Although all the tables were full, we never felt rushed and the dining room was comfortably quiet. The food, from both the Thanksgiving and regular menu, was delicious and prepared with care. Easy parking, too. Oh, and the dessert—Croccantino Semifredo—is amazing.

We dined at Via Veneto on Thanksgiving. The restaurant had a turkey meal special in addition to the full dinner menu. So the choices were many and the food was very good. Our server was very friendly. Seems like an authentic sort of old school place. We will go there again.

Always great Italian food! If there is a sauce you'd like that's not on their menu now, just ask for it. One of my all-time favorites is their creamy balsamic. We have always liked Via Veneto...so much we did our wedding there!

Great place, we were in from out of town and wanted to find something that was a local family restaurant as those have the most characters. Had a wonderful dinner!

Been here several times recently. The husband and wife owners are terrific. This is an "Old World" white table cloth type place. Our server treats you like you are her relative. Our server has been the owners wife each time. She is one of the friendliest people I have ever met. Her wine and menu recommendations have been great. We've enjoyed the Scampi and several other appetizers each visit. My wife has had the Ravioli and Chicken dishes. My friend has tried several homemade pasta dishes. All the pasta is homemade. I had the Salmon Vesuvio this past Thursday. Best I've ever had. I've been passing this place for years and finally decided to try it. Wish I done this years ago. We will definitely make this place one of our regular stops.

Been her several times now. This is about as "old world" original Italian as it gets. The pasta is all home made and beats all other places we've been to in Chicago. The appetizers (Shrimp Scampi, stuffed mushrooms, bruchetta) are all wonderful. I enjoyed the homemade gnocchi . My wife and friend had wonderful pasta dishes also. My wife and friend shared beautifully prepared and presented desert. Angela, our host and server is like a wonderful Italian sister, mom or grandma depending on your age. She recommended a wonderful wine and we enjoyed lots of it. This is really a beautiful place run by Angela and her husband. We pass this place almost every day driving between Skokie and all the great restaurants in Lincoln Square. Don't know why it took us so long to stop and try Via Veneto. We really like this place and they didn't even have tom pay us for this review.
