My favorite place to dine.
Very happy with the service and food - they were able to accommodate vegan dietary restrictions. When we asked what could be made plant-based, the server asked the kitchen and came back with a lot of flexibility, which was completely unexpected.
Great food great people!!
We always have the best experience at Viaggio. It’s such a special place for us and we have celebrated many important occasions there.
Excellent food, service, and very personable staff! Love the food and will definitely be back!
my wife & I been to Viaggio a number of times, I grew up in the Patch neighborhood, ate Italian food, been to Italian restuarants all over Chicago & Viaggio always is in running of were to go!, Viaggio is definietly one of the best in the city.
Outdoor options and generous portions
Food was great and fast!
Brick chicken is off the chain! 5 stars food was excellent and service was great!
Absolutely recommend! Fabulous food and very pleased
As usual, the food was absolutely outstanding. The service was fantastic as well. They have a lot of outdoor seating along the sidewalk which is very nice for the social distancing.
Our family has been here twice and it is our new favorite. Outstanding food and the servers are delightful! The pork Chop is amazing as well as the veal Parmesan and filet with garlic mash! Do not miss an opportunity to dine here.
Food was great and the restaurant is a neighborhood gem!
Classic, well-run, Italian go-to restaurant in the West Loop!
We loved it -it will be a favorite neighborhood place!
It was great to return to Dave and his wonderful staff. Al fresco dining on Madison Street on a beautiful Saturday evening. At first, I was wondering if the traffic would interfere but you hardly noticed it. The service was very attentive, prompt but we never felt rushed. The peppers and meatball salad were delicious as ever. My wife's penne with bolognese was rich and so flavorful. My veal limone was excellent. Finished our dinner with delicious tiramasu and the special limoncello cocktail (order it on the rocks - so much better ice cold).
We had a very nice time and neither of us are big outdoor dining people. There isn't a lot of traffic in the area, so it is more relaxing than a lot of outdoor dining areas. Food was great..
Viaggio is our favorite Italian restaurant in the City. Dave and his staff our outstanding!!
As always the food and service are outstanding. Seems this period of COVID is not lessening that. Sitting outside was a delightful experience last night!
We love Viaggio!!
This place continually has good food and strong service. Give em a try
Delicious food & amazing service. Can’t wait to go back!
Awesome experience! Reminded me of being back in Italy. Absolutely loved how it was smaller restaurant and the entire ambiance with the Frank Sinatra music was perfect. The food was spectacular as well. Will definitely be back!
It was a lovely early dinner outside on a sunny afternoon. So nice to be out in the world again! Tables were well spaced, and the servers were appropriately attired in black gloves and masks. We had the eggplant topped with arugula appetizer and the salad caprese, both nicely portioned and excellent. The wines, an arneis and a siena, were lovely. Entrees brought a terrific short rib ravioli and a rich risotto with shrimp.
This restaurant is truly a neighborhood gem. I am so happy we can return to dining in our local favorite. The food is great, the portions are generous, and the staff is outstanding!
The food at Viaggio is always amazing! It is my go-to place whenever I want an excellent Italian meal.
If you love Authentic Italian...this is the place to go
We had such a great experience! Food and drinks were delicious and Nenad took such great care of us. We will definitely be back!
This is our 2and time visit and we brought friends with us. Had a great time. A little disappointed made reservations indicating celebrating a 2 birthdays. It was overlooked. Our waiter was great Nanino aka Joe was awesome. Only feedback is seating is extremely tight. I could hear conversations next to me and noise level is pretty high. Overall enjoyed the food and service will be back.
We absolutely love viaggio! Best Italian American restaurant in the city!
Perfect before Hawks but loud, still going back.
Always a great meal. They have classic Italian dishes, and ones that are creative interpretations. For example, they have a burrata with pesto bruschetta. Just a bit different than regular mozzarella bruschetta. Their vodka sauce and sun dried tomato sauce also have just the right blend of sweetness.
My new favorite Italian restaurant!
Great food and service.
A true Chicago Italian restaurant experience. It’s not just about the food, but also the people here. I feel like I’m visiting family every time I step in. I wish I lived closer because I’d be here at least once a week..
Everyone was perfect. I can’t wait to go back. Loved it
Nice family place.
My only complaint was we felt a little rushed. I think they have a iPad ordering system and the kitchen knocked out the salads before we even got our wine.
My advice is to slow down the orders.
Otherwise everything was great
We ended up sitting at the bar. Bartender was super nice and gave great suggestions! Food was amazing! Can’t wait to go back!
Food in one word: Excellent. I recommend the veal Parmesan, Brussels sprouts, and pasta fagioli soup. Also, excellent service.
