Italian Village Restaurant - Chicago
Opened in 1927 by Alfredo Capitanini, and still run by his family, The Village is the oldest Italian restaurant in Chicago. It offers a menu of classic Italian-American fare, including lasagna, chicken cacciatora, pork chops, chicken Vesuvio, veal scalloppine and pastas, an award-winning list of nearly 1,000 wines and late-night dining.
Its location across from PrivateBank Theatre makes it convenient for pre- and post-show dining, and you can leave your car with Italian Village's valet while you're in the theater. The complex also houses La Cantina and Vivere.
