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..

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

Great Service. Food was delicious. Server was very attentive. Didn’t catch his name. He’s usually there when I visit. Took some rather picky eaters with and they loved it.

Six friends and I went to Viaggio to celebrate my birthday. Julie was our waitress and she was amazing, friendly and responsive. The food was excellent as well. I’d definitely return!

Same great, accommodating service as the now sadly closed Viaggio on the Park. Glad to see it's a company-wide ethic.

I love this place for all the wrong reasons. It is *the* place to go for all United Center events, especially Bulls or Hawks games. I don't exactly know why since it is a good half hour walk which on a beautiful summer day is not a big problem but the Hawks and Bulls play in the winter and this walk is less than ideal. But maybe it is all the jerseys on the walls and definitely it is all the jerseys on the patrons. Honestly, if you go there in street clothes you may get confused with the wait staff (who come to think of it were in jerseys as well). The place is crazy loud and the food is very good if not great (though the brick chicken is outstanding, my friend said the pasta was ok) but by game time -- 7:00 or so most nights -- the place empties out. As the owner told me one time, his is the only restaurant in Chicago where you can't get a seat before 7:00 but can walk in without a reservation after. And speaking of which, after 7:00 it is a pleasure.

Viaggio has been a long time favorite of our family. Any chance we get when we are in the city we go! Excellent food. We have never had a bad meal and they always have great specials. They treat you like family. The portions are large so unfortunately when heading out for the night after dinner, you don't get take the leftovers. (which we always have!)

Best food and service! On the weekends it can get pretty noisy and crowded in there but that’s part of it’s charm. We held our wedding rehearsal dinner there and go at least once a month for dinner (coming from the burbs). Definitely ask for Joe when you go, he’s the best! Some of our favorite dishes are the meatball salad, vodka sauce and the cavatelli! The specials never disappoint either!

A great place to eat before a Blackhawks or Bulls game, Viaggio provides a lively bar and dining scene. Friendly service and good food make for a great combination.

Best penne bolognese I’ve had in a long time. Great service, nice and close to the United Center. Perfect to go before a Bulls/Blackhawks game!
