The Italian Village may have been a village at one point; it now consists of three Italian restaurants in a single building. The Village, upstairs, features a great atmosphere, attentive service, and wonderful food.

Stopped here for lunch the other day while spending time in the city with my mom. Friendly and quick service. The atmosphere of the restaurant is amazing. I've been here several times and every time the food is amazing.

We wanted something different for our last meal in Chicago - and this was great. Fun atmosphere - good food - great service. Lasagna was good and Cannelloni was good - had one with Cream sauce and one with Tomato Sauce. Large portions.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
