Very nice place. The ambiance and food was excellent. However, the space and noise level were small and loud. At times, i could barely hear my friend talking right across the table from me. But i will definitely go back!

Great food!! A bit cramped and more of a bar atmosphere up front - partly due to Hawks game. Service was a bit slow, but we weren’t in a hurry.

Will DEFINITELY be back!

I’ve worked in the neighborhood (and park daily across the street) but have never eaten at Viaggio until recently. My mistake. We celebrated Valentine’s Day the day after, and it was perfect. Despite a Hawks game that night, our waitress Jennifer was laid back but attentive and made great food suggestions. The restaurant was really busy and clearly a pre-hockey dining spot. Our food was prepared perfectly, delivered by different house staff (owners?) with a smile. Dessert was left-over small “wedding cakes” from V-Day. We’ll go back again soon, and we’ll bring our kids. Love this restaurant.

This restaurant is outstanding!!! I've been here 4 times and my food has always been absolutely fantastic, as well as the service being impeccable. I would recommend this restaurant to any Italian food loving person out there...it really is one of the best restaurants in the city. I just cant get over how delicious each meal is. Definitely a great spot for a date or for any normal day!

Best food you’ll ever eat! Service is ok. Service is rushed, but worth the wait for the amazing food. We had an appetizer, meal, and desert served in under 50 minutes.

We had an early reservation before a concert at City Winery. The place has a nice vibe of a neighborhood cozy Italian restaurant, but was very busy by 6pm because of the Bull's game. All the food was nicely prepared and everyone found all to taste great. The place was pretty loud, and the wait staff in our case was a bit inattentive, but it may have been the early/heavy rush.

Lunch at Viaggio was great. Dave, the owner, is always gracious. Our waiter, Kyle, knew the menu inside and out. He let us order from the dinner menu and took care of my cooking special request. The sea bass was wonderful and priced as a good value.

Great authentic Italian food. Never had a bad meal there. Loud, lively atmosphere, especially on nights when Blackhawks, Bulls or a concert are happening at the UC. Well worth the visit.

We are repeat customers of Viaggio Ristorante, and we look forward to dining there each time. The service is fabulous, the food is incredible, and we are never disappointed. The roasted peppers and warm bread are yummy starters on every table. We ordered our favorite Meatball Salad for the table, which we were craving. We ordered the Chef Special Pork Chop Parmesan. I am not exaggerating when I tell you it covered more than three quarters of the plate, and was amazing!!! We took enough food home for a entire meal. Our friends were first-time patrons, and were very happy with our restaurant choice. We will definitely return (many, many times,) to Viaggio Ristorante and Lounge!

Food was good, atmosphere was good. Waitress was not so good. She rushed us through the meal, and despite being told we had a birthday at the table. When we ordered desert, it didn't even come with a candle.

Decent flavorful food. Service was a bit slow but I think it’s also because we were sharing the waiter next to a huge party next to us

Went before a hawks game...reservations right on time...great small Italian place with very authentic food of southern Italy....tables close together, but not intrusive...very good waiter that kept us on time, but never pushed us. Only one issue...my wife ordered a dirty martini with vodka...when it came it was literally water..not sure there was any vodka at all and no olive juice to our taste...we don't normally complain, but this just was not acceptable.....when the waiter brought the new drink he said they put in too much olive juice so they added a lot of water....very strange. Still loved this place and in fact are going back prior to another Hawks game in a couple weeks

My boyfriend and I loved this restaurant so much! It's a perfect atmosphere for a fun birthday evening or a romantic date. Our waiter, Chris, was so accommodating and fun to chat with, and made our night really special. The dinner was outstanding - we had rigatoni bolognese and linguini with clams - as was the dessert.
