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!!!

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.

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.
