First time there. Great service, lively atmosphere, good Italian food and walking distance to United Center. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Great place to go before a Black Hawks game. Made reservations on open table and they got us in and out in time for puck drop.
Great food and service
All time favorite Italian restaurant. Lemoncello martini and spaghetti and meatballs wow
Great service and food. It was quite cold inside the restaurant
a suggestion... put more lights/better lights in the women's bathroom, along with toilet paper.
Our go-to place for Italian! Love everything about Viaggio!
Had a fantastic experience as usual. The service was great. The food was phenomenal. It was a little loud but not over the top. Already looking forward to my next visit.
Seems like a popular place with a lot of traffic. The food was good and felt authentic. Service was good too. I would go back.
Decent food but far too noisy. Could not hear anyone at our small table of three
The food and service were, as expected, excellent. Fun place, great food, and a note to all: enjoy the peppers and bread that are placed at your table upon arrival. Be sure to enjoy a glass of wine with the peppers and bread. Go enjoy and have a really fun evening!!!
Everything was great!
Great restaurant in every way! The Meatball Salad is the best ever as is the Brick Chicken. Service is very solid and friendly
Great spot and super service
Always amazing food and service.
Top notch as always! Went with the usual...brick chicken and Sunday pork gravy...outstanding!!
We love Viaggio and done there frequently. This experience was a little disappointing, though, in terms of service. We were bounced back and forth between two servers, and while they were extremely peppy and friendly while at our table, neither one seemed overly concerned about taking our order or bringing our check. This has never happened before, so perhaps just a fluke
The atmosphere was loud, but that is the expectation in a neighborhood, family run restaurant. There was nothing on the menu that we ordered that was not great, from appetizer to dessert. Service was excellent! We will be returning to Viaggio's again soon.
Great service, great wine, and some of the best Italian food we’ve ever had! Highly recommend for a date night
The owners was very friendly and the food was amazing, they even kept my leftover while I enjoyed the Bulls game.
One of the best pre-game or pre-concert options in the West Loop. The food and service never disappoints.
Absolutely amazing staff and fantastic menu great daily specials everything is made with fresh ingredients hats off to the chef! Loved the atmosphere went before Hawks game ! Would go back again highly recommend this great little restaurant!!!
I went here for dinner this past Tuesday before heading to the Michelle Obama event at the United Center. We had Cosmos, Calamari, Rosotto, and the Ravioli stuffed Lobster. Everything was amazing! The service was great!
Loved the food and the personal accommodations that the restaurant staff made for us with our reservation. It was my grandma’s birthday & they made her feel so special and even made a light cosmopolitan drink for her.
From the minute you walk in, the look, feel and smells tell you this is going to be a dining treat. Server was awesome. Everything we ate was delicious (and between the five of us we ate a lot).
Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was delicious! We met Dave who is the owner as he was walking around greeting his customers. Great little neighborhood Italian restaurant.
Great food but truly exceptional service made our dinner a wonderful experience.
We love it here. Old Chicago at its best!
Awesome food and great service. We loved it.
Sausage and peppers appetizer was not good. Tasted funny. Everything else, ok.
Horribly loud and squeezed together like sardines. We will definitely not go back to this location.
Second time as good as the First -- Really enjoyed everything we had and it did not brake the bank
Fantastic dinner. Great service, wonderful food. One of our favorites!
I read great reviews about this place. We went, like I'm sure most people there, before attending a concert at the United Center. I'm positive they know these events are happening and handle staffing accordingly. However, our experience wasn't great. Long wait for our waiter to initially greet us. Once he did, he was very personable and good. My meal (Chicken Limone) came out under cooked, and I had to send it back. This wasn't good as we were already in a time crunch. I ordered Chicken Parm to replace it, and it was just average. My date's risotto was good and she really enjoyed the meal. The waiter ended up comping my meal, which was very professional. All that said, I won't be going back to this venue as there are many choices in restaurants and there's no need to pay for mediocre food in Chicago.
Just down the street from the United Center. There is a shuttle bus from the restaurant to the Center. Food is great, people are great. One of the best finds in Chicago.
The only place to go before the Blackhawks games!!
My go to favorite neer the United Center make you feel at home. The owner is always there and the food is fantastic
Always great food! Pregame before any event at the United Center!!
