Great pizza, dumpy building.

The pizza ranks among my favorite in Southern Illinois. The building, décor and lack of staff and specials, detracts from the pizza.

I visited the Italian Village with my boyfriend and we were both very disappointed. I will start by saying that the food was way over priced. We came at lunch time and our bill was over $30. I would expect a price like this at dinner time or at an Italian chain restaurant, but not a dump like this place.... More

IV's has been a landmark in Carbondale forever. The food is still great. The atmosphere is still eclectic. The pasta is all you need to know...terrific!

Perhaps the best pizza in Carbondale but the grafitti everywhere is a little off putting. It has been a fixture in town for decades and for good reason....the pizza!

It is always a treat to stop and eat at IV. It's like stepping back into my childhood. The aroma of the fine food greets you as you enter the front door. Don't expect it to be the big fancy modern chain pizza joint. It's like stepping back in time. In a good way.

IV's in Carbondale is the best pizza in Southern Illinois. But I would also get the salad bar as well. For only one dollar you can get a bowl of ice cream.

I have been eating at this restaurant since I was in high school, too many years to mention but it has not changed except for the better. Great pizza and salad bar! Highly recommend.

We don't know why Quatro's is considered the best. Italian Village wins our entire family's votes. Right amount of sauce, cheese, crust. Great.

What I like most about Italian Village's pizza is the sauce. It's tangy. I had pepperoni most recently--what I usually have--and I could probably do it once a week. All in all, the flavor is just right, the atmosphere is good. It's a good family atmosphere. It's a bit too much to pay for pizza, although if you go to... More
