The Italian Village Restaurants provide you a unique dining experience for any occasion. We’ve been hosting birthday parties, anniversaries, prom dinners and assorted special events for our customers for more than 80 years. Choose from the charming atmosphere of the rustic, “star lit” Italian street in The Village; the intimacy of a cozy wine cellar in La Cantina; or the contemporary Baroque elegance of Vivere. For more information, please contact our Event Director at (312) 332-7005 or email IVCatering@hotmail.com.
