Italian Village

Share Button

Nestled in Loop’s Theatre District and still outlasting countless off-Broadway runs. Appeals to tourists with schmaltzy promise of dinner in a bona fide Italian village. Fact that it enchants people who actually live in Chicago speaks to its uncanny, kitschy charm. Generic southern Italian eats, murals of mountains receding into the distance, tiny white Christmas lights twinkling under a twilight “sky.” Even cynics warm to a romantic night under the stars.
