    Quintessential Italian place, you don’t be disappointed if this is what you’re looking for. Frank Sinatra playing, monster portraits on the wall, delicious food and big portions.

    What wonderful food and service we had. It may have just become our new favorite neighborhood restaurant. We both commented on the high level of service and how much we enjoyed the food. And the leftovers made a great lunch today! Everyone from check-in, waitstaff and clean-up staff was professional. We did find the noise level higher than what we would have preferred. But it was obvious some of the people at the others tables were certainly having fun. That said, the noise won't deter us from future visits.

    Excellent food and very attentive service. Try the meatball salad appetizer. The pork chop is incredibly thick and juicy. You should also tell your server you heard Pete makes the best cappuccinos in the city!

    Nice ambience, cool decor. Really looked forward to this place and maybe an early Sunday dinner was not the best time to try. Waiter was pleasant and attentive but it felt like we were being rushed. The food came out in about 5 minutes of when we ordered and sadly was only warm and not hot. Was as though it was pre made and just under a heater. We won’t be going back..

    My husband and I always love coming to Viaggio for birthdays and anniversaries. This birthday was as great as ever. We got the tortellini alfredo and pork neck and both were so delicious. Our waiter was charming, and helpful, and brought the whole experience together. Viaggio will always be a place we think of to go.

    Viaggio is one of our favorite Chicago restaurants, and once again it didn’t disappoint! You’re not going to find a better ‘Italian joint’ anywhere in the city. You must try the breaded mozzarella! The chicken parm and house-made tiramisu are the best we’ve had. And the service is as good as the food. They make you feel like family!

    Viaggio is a family favorite! If it’s weekly or for special occasions, they always treat you like a king. Their food is phenomenal. I love their specials and the staff is amazing. I would highly recommend. Everything is homemade, much better than many local places around that are overrated, expensive, and the food is premade! I would definitely recommend!😍

    This might be my favorite spot in Chicago … it was so wonderful! My friends and I were seated in the right back corner seat and the ambience was perfect so immediately vibes were good. Our waiter was also very punctual, knowledgeable, friendly etc. the food was outstanding, we did all 3 courses - appetizer (bruschetta) which was unique from others I’ve had before, plus a lemon drop martini which was perfectly tart and sweet! Then we had the arrabbiata angel hair pasta and a glass of the servers suggested wine- chefs kiss. And ended the night with tiramisu and a glass of champagne, which came with a little bottle so we could refill our glasses. Love! We just enjoyed it so much. I will be back for sure!

    Fantastic menu selection. Our family are hearty eaters, and we all had 2nds, maybe 3rds to bring home. Daily specials, Chilean sea bass, and Lobster ravioli were a nice surprise to the regular menu. Then, came desert. Wonderful and humongous. Everyone and everything was wonderful. Worth the price. No B.S. charges for covid cleaning or credit card usage. Loved It and will be a regular. As there is so many other items I need to try.

    Overall, the food was really good. However, we were celebrating a birthday which was clearly marked on our reservation. We did not receive any different treatment and even noticed that a table next to us received a special birthday dessert, which we did not receive. This was very disappointing. The rest of the meal was good enough so that we’ll return, just definitely not for a birthday.

    This was one of the best Italian places I’ve been to in Chicago. Every dish was excellent. Service was wonderful. 10/10 recommend. If I HAD to complain about something, it would be the restroom. It was slightly unclean which was shocking considering how wonderful every other aspect of our experience was.

    It was my second time dining at Viaggio in the past year or so, and both experiences were equally fabulous. I dined with two friends last night (first timers), it was a Saturday, and the restaurant was hopping! As other diners noted in their reviews, you are warmly greeted and welcomed upon arrival. We were seated right away, and our waiter was great. Very friendly, fast, and offered great recommendations. I should mention all of the other colleagues refreshing items, packing up leftovers (although there wasn't much left because we were kind of the clean plate club) were all also really helpful and accommodating. We split the meatball salad, brick chicken and rigatoni vodka. It's hard to say which dish I enjoyed the most. They were all delish! I plan to get back soon, and highly recommend. My friends also really enjoyed everything about this lovely gem.

    Viaggio has been my favorite Italian restaurant in the city for many many years, unfortunately I have not dined at Viaggio for over a year. We finally had time to visit their new location just down the street from their old location. It is still the best! From the moment you arrive and are greeted by the beautiful hostesses, you will notice the restaurant has a very unique atmosphere. The wait staff and servers are very attentive and knowledgeable. The food is the awesome. They have so many delicious options for appetizers it always makes it hard to finish your dinner. I had the lobster ravioli special with a Diablo sauce, it was the best I ever had. In addition to the excellent tasting food, it is amazing how fast the service is, every seat in the restaurant was filled and still fast service. If you have not tried this hidden gem it should be on the top of your list.

    This is a great upscale Italian restaurant. Being upscale, we expected a bit of a snobby atmosphere and it absolutely was not! David, the owner is incredibly friendly and sociable. You can tell he genuinely cares for his restaurant. I would 100% recommend this place. The pasta is all made fresh in house and you can tell the difference.

    Seriously, this is one of my favorite stops anytime I am headed the UC. Dave and his team are all on point. From the minute you walk in the door you greeted with a smile. Sit at bar and have a drink before dinner and enjoy the atmosphere and the buzz. Restaurant is roomy with a great feel. Nic, waiter whenever possible is awesome. Attentive and great with menu suggestions. Food was fabulous. I had the veal and it was great, my son ordered clams with pasta that is not on menu but Nic took care of it. Wine selection is good as well. Can't give it 6 stars but I would
