Italian Village has been a place my whole family has gone since I was a kid. Even when family from around the US comes back to the area, we go to IV's. The food is great, just about anything you could want to eat, and the price fits the meal. Good experience!

I'm not sure why anyone would give this place more than 3 stars. It was dark, dingy, and average food at best. The fact that "Italian" is in the name is a joke. The place seemed dirty. I realize it's an old restaurant but I mean is everything in there still original? I won't be going back.

I have been going to Italian Village at least monthly for 30 years. The pizza/service has always been perfect until the past couple of months. Too of of three times pizza was doughy and service was slow. I think it may be under new management. Salad bar still good. My last pizza was good as usual, but one more screwup... More

This used to be our favorite pizza place, not anymore. The last 3 times we've eaten there the food hasn't been good. Blandest Italian Beef I've ever eaten. Reuben wasn't very good either, but the worst is the pizza. Nine of us went there tonight for my sons birthday, which we've been doing almost every year since he was 3.... More

coming from Chicago we were very skeptical about this pizza...especially since it is a college town and college kids will eat anything! We were very very surprised with the quality and taste of the pizza! I especially liked the alfredo pizza....(except the canned mushrooms-that won't fly in Chicago!)

I went to the Italian Village restaurant with two friends. We had the pasta and salad bar. The atmosphere was dark and people could write their names on the walls. I saw several children there. We ate outside, where other diners went to smoke. I felt the atmosphere wasn't anything to get excited about. The salad bar was a one... More

Food is at best mediocre. The service was terrible, but this place is saved by its location. I would avoid at all costs.

We have been going to IV's for many many years and love the thin pizza. Our favorite for pizza! Specials at lunch. Soft serve ice cream cone is also a favorite.

Great thin crust pizza. Very casual dining. All walls have been written on by customers over many years. Teens love it too! Salad bar is tasty. Was there in the 70's.
