A Romantic Wedding Venue in Downtown Chicago - Osteria Via Stato Skip Navigation

Osteria via Stato

Congratulations on your recent engagement! We are honored that you are considering hosting your wedding at Osteria Via Stato. Our services include a beautiful event space, romantic candlelit ambiance, customized menus to fit your tastes and budget and an on-site wedding planner. Our downtown, River North location is the ideal spot for a wedding – where your friends and family can enjoy all that Chicago has to offer.

Osteria Via Stato, located in downtown Chicago's vibrant River North neighborhood, offers couples a unique and romantic wedding venue reminiscent of a Tuscan wine cellar. Complete with seasonally driven authentic Italian cuisine, experienced service staff, bountiful complimentary amenities, plus on-site event planning - and you are guaranteed an unforgettable, seamless wedding celebration.

Sometimes, smaller is better. For couples who choose to share their wedding day with only their closest family and friends, we offer an inclusive wedding package for 50 or less guests. Experience all of the special moments of a larger wedding - romantic ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner and dancing, in a more petite format. An outdoor patio is also available, weather permitting.

Whether an intimated wedding celebration in the comfort of your home or an extravagant bash at one of the premier Chicago wedding venues, the events team are experts at taking it on the road. Off-site services include custom designed menus and beverages, experienced service staff, rentals and suggestions on vendors to complete your perfect day. Inquire for a personalized quote for your off-site wedding.

Our experienced special events team will assist with all questions and planning details. Services include time-line, floor maps and menu planning, as well as helpful tips on vendors and budgets. We will be on-site the day of the event to ensure that everything runs smoothly and welcome all vendors, as well as set up of gift table, favors and place cards. We are here to help, answer all of your questions and ensure your day is smooth sailing!

We love making life a little easier. At Osteria Via Stato, our amenities cross lots of to-dos off your wedding planning list. Included in every wedding package are ivory votive candles, custom printed dinner menus, hand-painted table numbers, on-site valet services, classic white or black table linens, a final menu tasting and ceremony rehearsal, coat check, Italian cookie box favors, on-site personalized wedding planning.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Osteria Via Stato and everything was absolutely amazing. We have not stopped receiving compliments on the wedding, atmosphere, location, and service! Our family and friends loved the food, wine, drinks and everything Osteria had to offer. The entire staff went above and beyond to make me and my guests feel relaxed and allowed us to really enjoy our wedding day. Book your wedding or next event at Osteria Via Stato if you want to have an amazing time, amazing food, and basically be the coolest person on Earth in the eyes of your friends and family.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and Osteria and the staff made everything so stress free, easy, and amazing. They had the tables set exactly how I had imagined them. And everything was absolutely beautiful! The staff was so friendly and helpful. I knew the first time we went to Osteria that that was where my husband and I were supposed to have our special day, but I was pleasantly surprised by the impeccable service throughout the year. Thank you so much for all your help and for making our day so memorable and special.

The atmosphere was very inviting and the ceremony was beautiful in the intimate space. The staff set the mood with dozens of candles being lit for the night. Our guests couldn’t rave enough about the food and how cozy and welcoming the space felt to them. This coming from Italians was confirmation for me that I selected the right place. It was outside the box and a long way from a traditional hall but it provided a truly unique experience for all. Without hesitation I would book any event at Osteria Via Stato. Thank you Osteria Via Stato for making our wedding nothing short of spectacular!
