I came in late. Was informed that they only serve until 11:30 pm in the bar. No problem. I was seated at a table and after 15 minutes had to find the hostess to find my waiter. He apologized and sorta rushed me through my order. The personal sized pizza was passable. I felt very unwelcome. Food not good enough... More

Very nice ambiance, excellent service. The restaurant is quiet large with several sections that are sectioned off so it feels more intimate. The menu had a good offering of variety. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. Filet, salmon pasta. Personally, my linguine w lobster and shrimp was not good. it was not linguine but rather spaghetti which the server did not denote... More

The Granita's in the summer are simply amazing. Their strawberry Granita is the best anywhere. If Osteria's short rib Risotto is on the menu give it a try, and you will not be disappointed. Dining outdoors is nice, and their service indoors is excellent as well. One of my go-to places in Chicago for a nice dining experience.

We ate hear for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The food and service were impeccable. Homemade veal meatballs, salmon and chicken were absolutely tasty. Food came out in courses so there was plenty of time to talk and move around a bit in between. Highly recommend and would definitely come back with friends and family to eat again.

Our larger group ordered the Italian family dinner, which included numerous courses brought to the table family style. Everything was fantastic. I would go back again.

Our first time at Osteria Via Stato was an average experience in regard to selection, service and prices. I ordered the $43.00 Ribeye steak, Medium rare, and it came out medium well. The server quickly ordered another steak but when it finally arrived my wife and son had finished their meals. I was a bit surprised that no manager visited... More

The Osteria is part of the Embassy Suites at downtown. We got there late, so they were closing but still serving pizza and salads, The pizza is the style I like the most, i.e. the super thin crust. It was very yummy. :-)

We were looking for a pizza place where they serve thin crust pizzas as we don't like the other variety. Luckily we found this place. The pizzas were excellent and the ambiance was nice. The waiters were very attentive. We sat outside where we enjoyed watching the locals and tourists passing by.

My wife and I stopped in after a Cubs game. We did not have a reservation, but we were able to secure a table in the dining room. We ordered cocktails and choices from the family style menu. All came quickly and were excellent. The problem ensued that there were two private parties testing the kitchen and waitstaff, but our... More
