I recommend Italian Village because it’s more upscale and central. They also have marathon specials. The restaurant has been serving up dishes from northern Italy since 1927, making it the oldest Italian restaurant in Chicago. While you’re there, take a look at the portraits of all the celebrities who have dined at the restaurant in the last 90+ years. When you arrive at Italian Village, you’ll head on up to the second floor of the building. After the success of the first restaurant, the family opened two more eateries in the same place: La Cantina, which opened in 1955 to be reminiscent of a “noble Italian family’s private wine cellar,” and the more upscale Vivere on the ground floor.
