Wonderful experience. Great food. Outstanding service. We had a great time.
Birthday celebration. Martinis were tasty. Food was delicious. Service attentive. Great night!
The short rib ravioli special was excellent. The four in our party each praised their food choices--filet, chicken limone, and skirt steak special. Wait staff was attentive even though restaurant was fairly busy. Staff helped us celebrate a special birthday. Will definitely return.
Best Italian food in the West loop and best service hands down.
We were celebrating the holidays and an engagement. The appetizers and entrees were great. They were able to accommodate two vegan diners in our group with a wonderfully tasting pasta dish. We were served our drinks quickly, right after being seated, and the overall service was very good. We loved the vibrant atmosphere.
An awesome place with delicious food and service. Highly recommend.
The food was delicious, the portions generous, and the service excellent. My husband and I shared an eggplant stack as our appetizer and shared the veal Marsala with pasta as our main course. A wonderful bottle of Montepulciano accompanied our dinner, which was topped off by a delicious dessert of Italian cheesecake. It was an excellent meal and we will definitely return soon.
Great dinner however would have been nice to know that there was no chicken dish of any kind available to order from the waiter when we were sat down and given the menus. Waiter did not mention anything until we were ordering... then said no chicken on the menu. Something that important in a restaurant this nice should have been said up front so that we would not have to again review the menu options to see what we could order. overall still a great place to eat.
Italian gem in the West Loop. The food is amazing and the staff are friendly and attentive.
Great dinner and service
Authentic italian food
Great location to downtown and united center
Valet parking available
Great experience dining. The service was exceptional.
You're at home when dining at Viaggio. From start to finish the experience is always outstanding.
Very few restaurants hit home runs on appetizers and entrees. It’s one or the other. Viaggio knocks Both out of the park. Their eggplant parmigiana is unrivaled in chicago!!
Great service was greeted by owner Dave outside and sat quickly and very cozy table also our waiter “Joe” was awesome and very well customer service and extremely friendly and very knowledgeable of menu and drinks and desert menu
My favorite neighbor restaurant! Great food, exceptional staff.
We love Viaggio and can’t wait to come back!!
The food was delicious, but the COVID safety protocols seemed to be non-existent. It was absolutely packed. Social distancing was not possible and inconsistent masking for staff and those up from their tables. Did not make me feel very comfortable.
Great food. Efficient and pleasant service. Perfect before the Hawks game!
This is my go to when headed to UC for game or concert. Dave is always welcoming and makes every effort to make room for you. On nights when Bulls of Blackhawks are in town the place is electric. Nick is the best waiter anywhere. Passionate about the food and the drink! Meatball salad is a must. All entrees are good.
Amazing as always. Great time with my brothers.
My friends had not been to Viaggio.
They’re kind of restaurant snobs, but I was comfortable recommending Viaggio.
Staff was welcoming and friendly.
Appetizers were great. Food was outstanding.
Wine was excellent.
A great night with rave reviews from the “snobs”.
(Hope they don’t read this or I won’t be invited next time).
My daughters and I had a wonderful time. The staff and the food were wonderful. Making it our regular Sunday dinner destination.
I don't write reviews but I had to for this place! The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was top-notch! I was so surprised at the number of the waitstaff that stopped at the table frequently and said hello or asked how our meal was (and it wasn't too much)...and the waiters themselves were so passionate and had the best personalities. I will be going back and I hope soon!
I went for my birthday because I love Italian food and it was amazing! Our waiter was very knowledgeable about all of the menu items and drinks. I will be going again.
I’ve been to Viaggios several times and it’s always the same, consistent deliciousness! Calamari is always fresh and tender and the meatball salad should be illegal it’s so good! Great drinks, superb staff and Dave is always welcoming.
Shrimp Sampi and Ceaser Salad were both outstanding.
Quaint little Italian restaurant with authentic and delicious food. Delicious dessert to finish the night. 10/10 recommend!
Probably one of the best meals I have ever had! The service was amazing, so friendly and helpful. Overall, excellent experience. Can’t wait to go back!!
Had reservations at 545p Sat night. Sat down right away. Baked clams VERY good. The vodka sauce was OMG, Delicious! Topped of with the coconut cake, AMAZING! Parking is an issue so vallet is a must. The dress code is casual but the place was nice enough to dress up, and next time I will.
Nicholas always goes advice and beyond. Service and food are always incredible!
We love this restaurant. We've been coming here for years, namely before Bulls games since it's right down the street. That said, we have been treated like family since our first visit. Dave the FOH manager is a real professional and you feel like you're being greeted by a friend you haven't seen in years. All of the waiters are professionals as well, super friendly, very attentive and on point! They do a great job with the food and the portions are typically huge but can be shared (plated) for a three dollar charge. This restaurant runs smoothly and is a great option even if you aren't going to the U.C. after dinner.
Always an amazing time and food! A Chicago staple!
Awesome dinner - had a party of 6 and we all had a great time!
It is always a wonderful meal and experience at Viaggio's
Viaggio never disappoints. The food is outstanding. Niko is such a fantastic waiter - he explains everything so well, and is such a welcoming person.
Great food! The best vodka sauce and alfredo sauce I've tasted!
Very good service. Not a super big menu but simply great Italian food - better than anything on Taylor St.
Excellent food and great service. Will be back!
We had great food and drinks. Casual atmosphere. Definitely would go back. Looking forward to leftovers today.
Great service staff. Food was delicious. Ample pour of wines. Never felt rushed. Have already made plans there for a holiday dinner with a group of 10 friends.
