The General Manager of Italian Village Restaurants, Mr. Joseph Deininger, disagrees with the Urinal Dot Net review of the establishment. He writes: "We have great quality food at reasonable prices and you can dine in any one of the three restaurants in the Italian Village Restaurants, The Village, La Cantina Enoteca or Vivere. They all have different menus and price points."
"The Village dining room was opened in 1927 and features Northern Italian cuisine in an old world atmosphere, has become a landmark in Chicago.The setting of a nineteenth century village, complete with the building facades and a "star lit" sky overhead, provides a festive location for casual, family-style dining. In Casa Reale ( The King's Palace), La Banca,( The Bank), La Taverna (The Tavern), and other "buildings" lining the village street, are private booths and rooms that seat 4 to 20. Larger parties of up to 36 can celebrate under the lanterns of the village square. Open seven days a week from lunch through dinner hours."
