The best lasagna I've ever tasted and I've tasted it in many restaurants around the world. Very light, robust and delicate balance. Server was energetic and customer focused. The meals came promptly and were very well presented. I highly recommend this place.

What a great restaurant with wonderful food! Staff is very friendly. Our server was a little slow but maybe she was new. My only negative comment is in regards to the noise level. Since it is a small venue it was a bit loud in there once the place filled up with patrons.

Good food and service. Pricey especially the cost of wine. Noisy so not for a quiet romantic dinner. Probably a good place for an early dinner before a Bulls or Hawks game at the UC.

We hosted a graduation party here for 14 people and it was perfect! They took great care of us, all of the food was delicious and the staff did everything they could to make it a great night for the two graduates. We started with fried calamari and bruschetta to share. The calamari was perfectly crispy and tender. I had the sea bass (amazing) over spinach and ate every delicious bite. There were many other dishes at the table and everyone was very happy with their meals.

Food was tasty, nothing super innovative, but classic Italian dishes. The ambiance was nice. I like the reenergized neighbor where Viaggio is located. The night I was there the windows were closed because it was chilly out. The noise level was fine when we first arrived but as the restaurant began to get crowded the sound level was unbelievably loud. So loud our ears were ringing and we couldn't have a conversation. I would suggest some sound absorbing material on the walls or ceiling. Service was marginal. Our waitress was enthusiastic and friendly but fairly incompetent. She asked us if we wanted to order dessert not realizing we never got dinner and screwed up a very easy drink order. I had high hopes for my first time at Viaggio, but I probably won't return. There are too many other restaurants to try in Chicago.

Had family from out of town from Reno Nevada
We had a wonderful time food was excellent
Just wish they could do something about the sound factor
Every every noisy
But we love this place
Was our first time there on a Friday night and that’s probably why it seemed so loud
We are usually there on a Sunday evening and it’s not as loud then

I have been going to Viaggio since just after it opened. In fact, I have probably been there close to 100 times. What keeps me coming back, are the excellent waitstaff (Nick as been there since the beginning and it always excellent), and the food is consistently fantastic. My mother is Italian, and the food at Viaggio is closest to her cooking that any other Italian restaurant I have ever been to. I have tried almost everything on the menu and I have never been disappointed. This place is a real gem!

I went here tonight and took my father for his birthday dinner. The service was impeccable including learning my fathers name discreetly so when they sang happy birthday they knew his name. The food was absolutely amazing. I had two specials that they let me combine for only a six dollar up charge consisting of chilean sea bass in a lemon sauce served with linguine which they let me substitute the linguine for the other special, a black truffle risotto with sausage and mushrooms. I cannot tell you which dish I enjoyed more. The portions are large and allow you to have a second meal to take home. My father had a spaghetti in meat sauce and keeps raving about it. I cannot wait to go back here! I would highly recommend this place to everyone.

My friend and I had a great experience!! They serve roasted green peppers with the bread which I have never seen before, but loved! Lemon drop martini was delicious as well as the food, our waiter was amazing as well! Definitely a little pricey, 14$ a martini when u have 3 is a lot of money but still worth it!

I always enjoy Viaggio. Consistently exceptional traditional Italian cuisine. Kristen did a nice job of providing for our needs but not being intrusive. Where else in Chicago can you get this value while likely getting street parking?

This is one of the great Italian restaurant/bar in Chicago. It’s a lively atmosphere, the seating is a bit cramped and it’s noisy, but the food is worth it. The salmon and brick chicken are the best; for a light meal do the salmon, but if your hungry, the brick chicken does the job.
