- Located on the second floor of a family-run complex of restaurants is this small, endearing trattoria, which has been a go-to spot for daters, theatergoers and suits since 1927. Designed to look like a town in Italy, the room is built for romance with white tablecloths, private nooks, faux building facades and twinkling white lights. As for the eats, they're red sauce-classic, beginning with fried calamari, an antipasto platter and clams baked with oregano-specked breadcrumbs. From Chicken Vesuvio to Veal Parm, ample portions are the mantra. The wine lengthy wine list touts upwards of 1,000 affordable and celebration-worthy bottles.

Message from Italian Village
A beloved Chicago Landmark, the Village is a casual restaurant located on the second floor. Designed like a small Italian town, customers dine in cozy nooks with such names as La Taverna (The Tavern) and La Banca (the Bank). The Northern Italian menu features an endless selection of pasta, veal, beef, seafood, chicken, pizza, panini and salads.
