Osteria via Stato

Thank you for choosing to dine with us. To help ensure the safety of our guests and employees during this time, we have set in place new dining standards. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and loyalty.

We’re Making Dining Indoors Safer 

As dining moves indoors, our top priority remains our commitment to providing a safe, clean, and healthy experience.

That is why we are excited to implement technology developed by AIRPHX (pronounced “air-fix”) into all of our restaurants nationwide.  After extensive research and with the advice of experts, we’ve concluded that this is the best system for us.

Here’s how it works

AIRPHX features “cold plasma” chambers intended to kill harmful airborne and surface organisms throughout the day. Used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, Olympic training centers, universities, police and fire stations, and casinos, it eliminates 90-98% of influenza, coronaviruses, norovirus, hepatitis, salmonella, listeria, e.coli, and over 30 common bacteria and viruses both in the air and on surfaces.

This is just one more important step that we are taking to continue improving health and safety measures in our restaurants, and we want to thank you for your continued confidence in us.

Additional Safety Measures

Dine-in capacity will remain at 50% in the dining room, 50% on the patio.
We’re introducing disposable and digital menus and will maintain thorough sanitation procedures and continuous hand washing.
Guests are required to wear masks while in the restaurant, masks are required during all interactions with the service team and only to be removed when eating or drinking.
All guests must confirm they have not traveled to any area on the current travel restriction list within the last 14 days
To help offset restrictions on our business resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, a 5% surcharge has been added to all guest checks. If you would like this removed, please let us know.

Your continued support and patience during this time are truly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

In honor of National Wine Day on May 25th, Osteria Via Stato will be featuring wines from Marchesi Antinori, a renowned winery known for it’s rich history in winemaking. All Antinori wines, including the coveted ones, will be sold by the glass or half glass all month long.

The Antinori family has been well known for Italian wine for over 6 centuries and 26 generations.  Today, the land, vines, winery and wine-making production is overseen by Albiera Antinori, along with her sisters Allegra and Alessia.

For Osteria Via Stato, it was love at first sip. Tuscan tradition, passion and intuition are the pillars of the Antinori foundation-the same as Osteria Via Stato. Naturally, when it came down to deciding which winery to feature on National Wine Day, it was no contest. When you walk into Osteria, you get swept up into the romance of the Tuscan experienceand with a glass of Antinori, you’ll forget you’re even in Chicago.

Come and enjoy all the wines we have to offer until Thursday, May 25th. We’ll see you in the pizzeria, the dining room or out on our patio, saluti!

 Here are a few noteworthy wines from our list:

Chianti Classico – Peppoli 2013

If this is your first time trying an Antinori vintage, the Peppoli is a good start. Ruby red in color, the wine greets you with cherries, violets, along with spice and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is savory and balanced with the crisp acidity of this variety and sweet flavors. Peppoli is best paired with leisurely chatting on our patio and people watching.

Antinori Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva Pian Delle Vigne 2007

The Pian Delle Vigne is one of the more unforgettable Antinori wines we have. Greeted with red fruit, spices, tobacco, and chocolate it is one of the more decadent wines. Mineral notes and vibrant tannins create an enjoyable tasting experience.

Cervaro Della Sala 2013
The Cervaro, has been awarded various prizes and accolades but it also has unique past. In 1940, the Antinori family purchased Monaldeschi della Cervara, a castle owned by the noble Cervara family during 14th century. In honor of the land, the family named the wine after the estate and maintained its Mediterranean character in the flavor profile. The crisp wine has buttery vanilla notes, tropical and citrus fruits, and is mineral in character.
