I specifically noted in the reservation that I pick Viaggio to celebrate my 50th bday. I really wanted just a candle to blow out. What did I get nothing!! Such a disappointment. Service was terrible and no one even acknowledged my bday.

As always an amazing dinner. Very little leftover. Loved every bite! I had the pumpkin raviolis. So delicious. My husband had the chicken limone and my nephew had the sea bass. All cooked to perfection and plated beautifully.

Great food, per our group of 6. It was REALLY loud at first; had we known it often draws a major rambunctious crowd before United Center events we'd have reserved later. Service fell off at the very end, when one of our desserts was forgotten and another was wrong. So pick the right time and you'll really enjoy yourself!

The food was delicious. The service was great. I took my family to a Blackhawks game which was slated for a 7:00 start. Our reservations were for 5:00; which is when the restaurant opens. I was concerned that they would be swamped, but their staff was very well prepared. We were finished with dinner with time to spare. Our Waiter, Joe was awesome !

Wonderful meal as always. Came for my birthday and they made it extra special. We shared a great bruschetta app. Really like the torn fresh mozzarella they put on top. Then we split the eggplant parm which is excellent but if I’m being honest we got it because it comes with a side of tortellini Alfredo which is superb. I love that they do that instead of the standard pasta in red sauce you get at most Italian joints. We also got the orchiette with white beans, sausage, and escarole. It’s super get garlicky and not something you find on most menus. Definitely worth a try. For my birthday they sent out a huge slice of chocolate cake that was some of the best I’ve ever had, on the house, with a candle and sang to me. That was followed by complimentary housemate orangciello, lemonciello’s tasty cousin. Great service and ambience. Definitely worth a visit!

First time here and Viaggio lived up to the high ratings it has. Nice wine list, well chosen for Italian food. Waiters were friendly and knowledgeable. All food we ordered was absolutely 5 stars. Fried Calamari firm yet tender. Mussels in spicy red sauce were meaty and very fresh. No stinkers.
The grilled salmon was extraordinary. Cooked to perfection. I had the special mushroom tortalace with mushroom cream sauce. Fugit about it! One of the best pasta dishes I ever had.

Amazing dinner!!! The food was so delicious, I never had pork chop parm before and I don’t know how this isn’t a more common thing.

In addition the staff and owner were the best. So helpful and kind, really a neighborhood place.

More about the atmosphere experience is after talking to me about my marathon and they called me an Uber home and paid for it, I would recommend anyone in Chicago come here.

Not a good experience at this restaurant. Overpriced and our server was clearly busy with other tables and failed to check back with us resulting in being there for 3 hours.
I ordered the sea bass special that came with tomatoes and I was splitting it with my sister and said that my sister couldn’t eat tomatoes and if they had another option for a vegetable on that plate, yes... no problem. On my check, I was charged $8.00 for broccoli and never told the “Substitution” was extra.
We were celebrating my sisters birthday and they did bring us a small chocolate dessert to share for the table. On a previous visit I had a delicious lemon cake and I asked our server if they still have the lemon cake and he said no. He starts to tell us about all the other desserts and that he wants to bring us a sampler of desserts. He bought our table three desserts, that we didn’t actually order and then was charged $30.00 for those.
When you offer to do things as a server, you don’t charge customers unless they’re aware of those charges.
Overall.. bad experience.
