Viaggio Ristorante and Lounge
An authentic Italian dining experience in the heart of Chicago's lively West Loop neighborhood
We offer an elegant and charming dining experience that keeps guests coming back again and again. Our large menu of regional Italian pastas, meats and fishes is rounded out by a selection of salads, soups, and decadent desserts. Popular staples like Rigatoni with Braised Pork Gravy and Eggplant Parmesan are served alongside Executive Chef Nicolas Biscaglio’s signature interpretations of classic Italian dishes. We use only the highest quality ingredients to ensure a deliciously memorable experience!
As a hospitality-driven establishment, it’s our goal to make every guest that walks through the door feel like family. At Viaggio, we invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy!
Viaggio never disappoints. The food is always excellent, and the restaurant and staff always make you feel welcome. Highly recommend!
This restaurant is our go to restaurant when we are celebrating any occasion. We love it! But I’m boring, I always order the same entree - 8 finger cavatelli. Yum! Plus the service is always outstanding. We’re grateful we found this treasure years ago.
Great hidden gem in the west loop. Good service and quality food.
Perfect location less than a mile from the United Center. A true hidden gem with a traditional unassuming classic red awning and terrific authentic food and vibrant atmosphere too. Looking forward to our next visit!
Food was very good and staff were very friendly and accommodating. In a perfect location to eat before going to the United Center. Only a 15 minute walk from the restaurant.
Party of 4 attending the Big Ten tournament at United Center and were looking for a place to eat that we could walk to between sessions on Thursday. Discovered Viaggio on Google maps and loved it so much we went back on Friday. Host was super friendly and remembered us, as did our amazing waitress. Nice wine list and great pasta dishes. Highly recommended if you're in the neighborhood.
Food is terrific, server was helpful and pleasant. A little noisy, but it was the crowd going to the Blackhawks game, so it was expected.
Always an amazing meal before a game! Service was amazing and food was perfection!!
Great food cooked to perfection ,our waiter Niko knew the menu inside and out ,everything was fantastic The food is great every time !!
Great food consistent and great service
Good location. The food was amazing. Service was good. Valet parking was reasonably priced and convenient.
My boyfriend and I were debating on going in this restaurant the other evening. We were standing near the door trying to peak in and a man saw us as he was walking back in the restaurant, and asked if we're eating there. We said we weren't sure. He asked if we wanted to see a menu and we said yea, why not. We didn't realize he worked there. We walked in, barely took a glance at the menu and we decided to stay. That man ended up being the owner - so incredibly nice and laid back. The waiter was nice, helpful and funny. Our food and drinks were great. Wait staff was quick to clean any dirtied plates up and check on us. The owner came to check on us. We absolutely loved the old school Italian atmosphere and ambiance. Very humble owner and staff. This will be a go to of ours moving forward when we want a nice date night, or even to sit at the bar for a drink. Highly recommend!
Food and our server were excellent. Plenty of good choices on the win list and fair prices. A minor issue is the tables are very close together, although it would NOT stop me from being a return customer.
As always just great. A place that should be on everyone’s list. Be sure to say hi to Dave the host and owner. A great place.
Love this restaurant and the ambiance. The veal was just right - the mushroom gravy a little salty. Viaggio is and still remains an absolute fav of mine!
We had Lasagna and the meatball salad...delicious!! Service was outstanding!!
I understand it was busy, but it seemed as if the waiter was addressing our table and the next table at the same time, announcing specials, etc. food was delicious though .
Really, really good. Food and service were both terrific. Nice presentation, served at the correct temperature with professional staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Will definitely return.
First time there - outstanding experience !!!! Food, service and ambiance was great - server had a great personality - didn't take herself too seriously but was knowledgeable about everything. Met the owner as well - great guy - we'll be back without a doubt!!!!
Best Italian restaurant in Chicago
The meatball salad tastes identical to my grandmothers. Music was great!!!
Outstanding, I'll be there again. Just wish tables for two were a little bigger to accommodate the orders. Service was great/people and food!
The entire experience was awesome. Listen to your server, they know what's best. The food was amazing, the service perfect, just a great dinner. And the best part, everything at a very reasonable price. We loved it.
This restaurant has outstanding veal dishes and service is extremely prompt, but not rushed. Waiters are very professional and helpful. Viaggio is very popular with people attending the United Center and knows how to serve dinner so that guests can attend the event on time.
My first time dining in and I will definitely be returning! The food, and service were awesome and ambiance as well!
We have been coming here for several years. The food is outstanding, reservations are always kept, service is impeccable and you're treated like family. One of the best restaurants in the city. We LOVE it!
Love this place, always go there after a Blackhawks game. Amazing Italian food and Dave the owner is so welcoming!
As always: good food, great service, fun atmosphere -- all around great evening. Thanks to Dave and the others!
We love the Viaggio! You can spend a lot more, and never have as great an experience as you would here with friends.
Everything was good. I had the Chicken Parmesan and it was delish.
Eggplant stack and chicken dishes were delicious. Our table was near the door and was awkward with folks coming in and out but except that, the experience was great and we will be back
Pre hawks game
Love going to this restaurant. Always great food, service.
Absolutely awesome!! The food, the service, the atmosphere ....everything was perfect!
While there I had lost a bottom off my boot, called the restaurant later, and a server, Rinya, was nice enough to take time to get a flashlight and find it under the table and save it for me. That is excellent customer service! I have been to this reataraun twice in the last theee weeks and it has been all around, a great experience! On my list of favorites!
Best pre-game, pre-concert dinner in town! Reservations are a must
Awesome perfect before hockey game s
Despite having reserved a table, I was seated in the noisy bar at a very small hi- top. By the time I was offered service, quite some time later, I decided to leave without eating.
This was the second year in a row we came here to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Looking to make it an annual tradition as we have loved the food both times.
Very good. Enjoyed! A new place to add to my list.
