Kids visiting from out of town. Wanted celebratory fun atmosphere with fantastic food and impeccable service. We were satisfied on all fronts. One of our favorites in the shadow of the Madhouse.

It was just very hot in the restaurant- due to the age of the building but otherwise the food and service was great

We brought our friends to Viaggio’s to celebrate their birthdays. We all had a wonderful experience. From our greeting at the door, to our waitperson who was outstanding especially with menu choices, and the nice surprise birthday dessert complete with singing. We talked about our evening all the way home. We will all be back and highly recommend Viaggio’s for a special dinner experience.

My wife and I recently moved from the West Loop (walking distance to Viaggio) to Valpo. I was in-town for a business meeting and jumped at the opportunity to recommend lunch at Viaggio. I had not forgotten how good it was, but I did realize how much I missed our favorite Italian restaurant. Gotta plan an overnight stay in the city just to have dinner here.
Those of you who are closer, don't miss this wonderful spot.

Great spot and interesting menu. We arrived way to early for our reservation and before the restaurant was even open and they had fun with us about our early arrival. No big deal because the neighborhood had nearby fun spot to hang out with our older teen kids while we waited. We were immediately seated and had a wonderful waiter who made an excellent wine recommendation. Interesting items on the regular menu and on the specials. Chicken and veal dishes were superb as was the short rib ravioli. Fried calamari was unbelievably light and good, better than the grilled calamari here. Tasty desserts including key lime pie and cannoli. Warm ambiance and typical for a traditional Italian place. Lively and fun.

I had a 6pm reservation and when I arrived our party of 4 was taken way to the back of the restaurant...dimly lit and away from the main seating area. The entire restaurant was 90% empty and I asked to be seated up front or somewhere in the main area. I was told that all those seats were already reserved. Upon leaving at 7:45pm there were still many empty tables. Because I was with my 85 y/o mother and 90 y/o father I believe they just wanted to stick the old folks in the back so as not to ruin their chic urban vibe. I was very disappointed and will not return.

Nice ambiance. Service was good. Menu has lots of great options for appetizers and entrees. We shared the eggplant stack (with tomatoes and mozzarella) - it was so big for the two of us that we skipped our salad. We shared a veal entree and it was more than enough for the two of us. We paid a small fee to share the plate, but they didn't give us a hard time at all.

We had an early reservation before heading to a show so the restaurant was empty when we arrived. But, within about a 1/2 hour or so it started to fill up and become more lively. The food was excellent and the service was great!

We dined here before a concert at the United Center. The food was fabulous! They even had some great gluten free options for my friend. The waiter was knowledgeable regarding the menu and had some great recommendations. I did notice that it was a little loud because the space is quite open, but we were still able to enjoy conversation at our table.
We all gave it two enthusiastic thumbs up!

First time at Viaggio, we all had very tasty food choices and no one left hungry. The atmosphere is busy, noise level is quite loud so I wouldn’t recommend to go with children or if you wanted a romantic night out. It was recommended for us to try and we were all glad we did.
