We had a special chefs menu for Valentines night and it was delicious! We especially enjoyed the meatballs appetizer, salmon entre, and the beef tenderloin! Service was great and we enjoyed the ambiance.

I had my wedding dinner at Osteria Via Stato. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal. I wish I could do it all over it again. It was a great experience. I worked with Michelle, the head of the event staff to coordinate the wedding dinner. She let me drop off tapered candles and place cards the day... More

Honestly, this restaurant blew us away. Our waiter was extremely helpful and knowledgable and we enjoyed every last bite of our dinners. The pasta was amazing and my husband said the steak was the best he has ever had! Portion sizes looked small but they were just right! Don't miss this restaurant if you are in Chicago. You won't be... More

We were in a group of six people and really enjoyed the Restaurant Week Tasting Menu. The restaurant served a nice variety of food on the menu and it was plenty to eat. The red sauce on the meatballs was great. The service was nice and the wine list had a variety of price options. We will return to try... More

Three ordered pasta dishes and the pasta was done just right. Portions were generous as were the side dishes. Chicken was disappointing, chewy and didn't seem thoroughly cooked. Deserts are a must.

My wife and I sat outside here and drank mojitos and ate olives etc for like 4 hours this fall. It was fun. Food was good. Bartender was great. Atmosphere was fantastic. I'd recommend it.

We ate in the pizza part of the Osteria. This part of the restaurant is not as fancy and nice as the other part of the restaurant but it offers really good pizzas and I had one of the best octopus plates in the USA. Our waiter was not one of the nicest people, at least not to us, cause... More

Came back after an excellent dinner last year. 15 year old ordered off the kid menu as she just wanted something simple. 12 year old wanted a "special order" which they easily accommodated. Everyone was very happy with their meal. My hubby got a steak for $46 which basically came with no sides yet covered his entire plate. He said... More
