Eating with my friends is a great time no matter where we are. But when we find a place with Great food and waitresses who are friendly and have the ability to banter with us, it always makes for a better dining experience. Plus they have luxardo (spell check) cherry’s.

We love this place! My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant when we were with my son and his soccer team at another nearby bar. We are so glad we did. We loved everything from the warm bread, olive oil and roasted peppers they serve when you sit down, to the Pasta Fagioli, Cavatelli, Rigatoni with Sunday Pork gravy, Lasagna and meatballs. And the desserts! We got the Chocolate Kailua cake(ask for a scoop of ice cream to go with it)—My goodness! A chocolate lover’s delight! The wine list is reasonable too. We had more food than we could eat, so we enjoyed a second dinner the next night. My only complaint is that the Pasta Fagioli is not a permanent part of the menu as it is delicious.

Always tasty. Can get loud and crowded when there's an event at the United Center, but it's still an enjoyable experience. Pasta is delicious -- wish the portions were a tad larger, but the food is great. Staff are friendly and accommodating.

My fiance & I dined at Viaggio before a Blackhawks game because we didn't want the usual fried bar food. We were very happy with our choice. I tried the Chilean sea bass special & my partner tried the braised pork in tomato gravy...both were delicious! We were there early, service was good. Once restaurant became busy it was quite loud but most customers appeared to be going to game so had the pre-game excitement rolling!

Went New Years Eve. It was crowed with a wide mix of people of different ages as well as some family groups. We were quickly seated and our server and staff were fast, friendly and attentive. Our food was very good and the portions so large we both took some home for another meal! Definitely going back!

We had a party of 6 for dinner. The shared appetizers of 1) sausages, pepper and onions; 2) sautéed calamari and 3) bruschetta came out promptly and were in sufficient quantity that everyone could have a bit or two. The main courses ranged from Fettuccini Alfredo to Veal were very tasty and of sufficient size that left-overs were taken home by all. The desserts were what you would expect at an Italian restaurant and were very good. The tables can be close together but that makes the place have a positive vibe.

This place has slowly become my favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago. They have some dishes that are just phenomenal. Shrimp Dakota(appetizer) and the Brick Chicken(can easily split between 2 people) are must orders, imo. Freshly made Cavatelli is also superb. Service is always on point.

We celebrated my daughter's college graduation at Viaggios. We arrived 30 minutes early but they gladly took us to our table. The service was fabulous and so was the food. I will definitely think of them for future events.
