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
Everything about our experience was outstanding! Food was great, service was outstanding. We arrived an hour early and they were able to accommodate us easily. Delicious fresh fish special was perfect and the meatballs are best ever.
We thought the overall experience was outstanding, service and food were great, highly recommend.
Love Viaggio!! I have never had a bad meal there. Everything is fresh and delicious. Service is warm and friendly. It truly is my favorite Italian restaurant in the city!!
Second time here and I'll be back again. The food is seriously REAL Italian food and a great wine list to boot. Unpretentious and amazing.
Best Italian dining. Never disappoints.
We love Viaggio and go frequently. The food is excellent every time.
Owner always greets patrons. Julie was excellent and Nicholas remembered us from previous visits and was cordial as always. Love this place!
Great traditional Italian food and very good portions. If you want a great meal, excellent service, without the fancy decor, this is the place to go. As good and traditional as it gets!!!
Fried squid were horrible
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.
Great meal and service.
Owner very accommodating and nice.
Overall experience fantastic. Can’t wait to go back
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.
Our waitress was very nice and the meal was fantastic for a great price.
Blown away by the food!!! Everything was excellent! We will be back!
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.
This place is amazing! Food is so good! Very friendly, clean, cozy!
Excellent stop for dinner on the way to any UC event!
Been here a few times. Food and service always consistently top notch.
Great food. Great ambiance. Meatball salad is to die for.
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.
The best Italian food I’ve ever had!!!
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.
Our experience was excellent The Sslmon was fresh and tasty
The cavstelli was outstanding and our waitress was wonderful
The owner stopped by our table and we felt very comfortable
Great food, service and staff! We'll definitely be back :)
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!
This was our first time dining at Viaggio Ristorante and I'm sure it will not be our last. It was recommended to us by friends who dine there often. The wait staff was amazing explaining everything about the menu and specials.
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!
The food is absolutely amazing!!!!! This is a great place to go if you are going to the United Center for an event!
Went on a Sunday evening. Food and service was fantastic. Loved the Rigatoni Vodka. Would highly recommend.
Great Italian food, great service, all around great, casual Italian restaurant
Great food great service.
I recently moved out of the neighborhood, but that won't stop me from returning to my all time favorite Italian restaurant in the city. I have never had a bad meal here, am always treated like family and LOVE that they cater to the neighborhood.
Once again we had an outstanding experience. We were celebrating a birthday and Kristin and the rest of the staff made this a memorable evening. The food was absolutely outstanding! We highly recommend to everyone!
Viaggio will always be one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Chicago!!
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.
Absolutely loved our dinner date night at Viaggio! The food was outstanding as usual and our waitress and wait staff were friendly without being intrusive on our special night. We will definitely be back again. And oh yes, the meatballs are to die for!
