Serously. This is the best chicken I've ever had in my entire life. Everything was delicious! The bistro side has a very nice menu too! My only issue, we ate early and the restaurant was pretty much empty. Despite this, they sat the only other party RIGHT NEXT TO US. Ugh.

We dined at the Osteria Via Stato on an evening in which it rained…but before we felt any raindrops (as we were dining outside), the awnings were activated and it was fun to sit under them and hear the rain as we continued to dine. The bread and oil/mushrooms in which to dip the bread were very tasty as were... More

In addition to great pizza this is a very popular Italian restaurant and offers small plates as well. Try the beet salad or the octopus - yummy

Let me start by saying the warm bread served while you wait for your meal is outstanding! It is served with a garlic and olive oil dipping sauce. Just that alone could have been my meal. I was impressed they offered side dishes (smaller sized main dishes) for those of us who are not big eaters. If you are a... More

Great place and it's located within the Embassy Suites Hotel. After eating deep dish Chicago pizza this was a well needed thin crust, light tasting pizza. It was delicious and relatively inexpensive. The service was great and the patio was a great chance to soak up the Chicago street life while enjoying a fabulous dinner. I would definitely return and... More

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant on our last night in Chicago and we were very impressed with the food! We would suggest the crispy polenta.

Great wine selection. Our waiter (sorry cant remember his name - but he was from Cancun) was very efficient and... More

Chef David is always taxing his food before it reaches the guest and I'm glad he does. I've never had a bad meal here and don't believe I will. Try a little bit of everything but definitely try some of his pizzas. Paper thin crust packed with tons of flavor. Great wine list. A must try restaurant

Are at the pizzeria. It was great! Thin crust was really great. Also the mix greens salad. Our waitress was excellent. A busy night after the game and they made an extra effort to seat 9 of us. The bartender was a bit rude.
