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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
