Cheezy, and I don't mean just the food. We were seated by a toy watermill and couldn't stop laughing. The decor is perfect for any tourist that made it to Chicago but not quite to Italy. Food was fine, nothing outstanding but more than acceptable. Service was mediocre. I can't complain but I won't be back.

My husband and I got reservations for 6 pm. We arrived no waiting. We were very happy with this due to limited time to dine and catch a musical. The atmosphere was very old world. The food, service, atmosphere rated very high with us. My only complaint would be we were at a table that my husbands knees and feet kept hitting mine and made for sore toes on my part. We are only 5'9 so we don't have long legs. We were also seated by the buss boy cart a little distracting at times. Other than this we had a very enjoyable time and would highly recommend this restaurant.

Went here with family after the theatre on Saturday. Of all of the dining experiences my wife and I have had over the years, this has to rank among the worst. We were stuck in a booth (5 people in a booth for 4) in the bar (which I can sort of accept if the food and atmosphere is acceptable) and I can honestly say that for the money what we were served was probably the worst meal (way over priced) I have eaten. The wait staff was disinterested, the silverware and table bordered on filthy I have had better Italian food from the frozen food section of the supermarket. Maybe the Italian Village has a built in base of clientele because of it's location near the theatre. With a bill of over $400.00 for 5 people(overcooked lukewarm pasta with a lump of tasteless sauce for $17.00) we will never ever be back. There are too many other restaurants that respect their customers and give them good food and a good dining experience for the same (or less) money. Perhaps success breeds disinterest and something way less than mediocrity. That's what The Italian Village is all about. Stay awau at all cost.
