Welcome to Italian Village Restaurants Group Dining, where our vibrant spaces serve as the perfect canvas for a diverse range of events. From intimate rehearsal dinners to energizing corporate celebrations, from family reunion feasts to heartwarming holiday parties, our versatile venues and highly experienced team will bring your vision to life!
The Village - The Village is truly a journey back in time. Here, you can dine in the center of the charming piazza of an old Tuscan village circa the 1920s, surrounded by beautiful landscape murals, twinkling lights, and the blue night sky. This unique, old-school Chicago dining room offers a non-private experience for up to 36 guests.
Truly Private Dining
Immerse your guests in an atmosphere of elegance, beauty, and comfort. Step out on The Balcony, a haven for intimate cocktail gatherings of up to 30 guests or sit-down dinners for up to 40 guests. For larger gatherings (up to 54 guests), the Main Room awaits. The Main Room is ideal for sit-down dinners or more lively events – with high ceilings, curvaceous mirrors, and unique artisan-crafted features, this room is a showstopper and a must–see. Or, experience the height of versatility by reserving both The Balcony and the Main Room. Whether your event calls for a refined sit-down dining experience or a fashionable cocktail reception, the combined spaces accommodate up to 100 guests (seated) or 150 (standing). If you're celebrating a big milestone or hosting a corporate event, Vivere truly provides a setting that will leave a lasting impression.
Nestled in our lower level, you’ll find La Cantina — a hidden gem with a cozy, wine cellar vibe. Brick-lined, old wood, and warmly lit, La Cantina offers two private spaces, Enoteca & Vista. Enoteca can accommodate up to 18 guests for a private sit-down dining experience, while Vista offers space for up to 28 guests.
Private Cocktail Reception
At Italian Village, we understand the essence of a great happy hour – flowing drinks, lively conversation, small bites, and an inviting atmosphere. The Vivere Bar area is designed to foster just that. With a vibrant, flowing ambiance, like that of the Main Room, Vivere Bar is able to accommodate up to 25 guests for a classy cocktail reception or after-work happy hour.
Cantina Bar + Enoteca
For events where mingling and networking are top-of-mind, our Cantina Bar + Enoteca combined space offer another perfect option. Guests can mingle freely throughout the bar and private room, whether gathering around cocktail tables or enjoying a seat at the bar. This flexible, private space can host up to 50 guests for either a mixed-seating or standing reception with an appetizer table or buffet.
