The West Loop isn’t known for having an abundance of quiet, old-school spots. In fact, nowadays most of Restaurant Row is full of trendy new places, fast-casual chain restaurants, and the McDonalds that takes up half a block. Head to Viaggio when you want to keep it simple with a neighborhood institution. It’s been around for more than 10 years (which is about 50 in West Loop years), and the food is exactly what you want it to be: tasty and comforting. Get the meatball salad. Yes, you read that correctly.
