The Italian Village isn't a bad place, it's just not an amazing place. They score as a 3.5 out of 5, but not a 4. The Italian Sausage Sandwich isn't bad. The pizza is pretty average.

Lasagna was not very good. Expected more from a hometown place like this. Had the pizza before and it was good. But I can't recommend the lasagna.

We had delicious cheese pizza here while visiting friends in Marion, IL. The combination of Italian cheeses made this one of the best cheese pizzas I have had in a very long time. The 50 year old quaint business was a trip back in time. Lovely experience.

We opted for carry out. The service was a tad slow. Food was very good at a great price. The place had a college hangout atmosphere with carved messages in the wooded walls. Sort of cool.

Food wasn't bad, not a large menu but everyone found something to eat. Order at the counter and pick up your own food kinda place. Good if you're on a budget,

My family meet there for dinner. The pizza is the best around. The meatball subs will not disappoint you either.

Busy italian restaurant near SIU campus. Definitely feels like a college town restaurant/bar. Ordered six pizzas for a large group, the pizzas arrived quickly and weren't the best ever but not bad. Certainly the best i've had in southern or central illinois. There are no waiters or waiteresses, it is all self serve, which didn't bother me, but it might... More

I have been eating at IVs for many years and think they have a pretty good menu. The place is unique in and of itself but their salad bar and lasagna really stick out to me. Their pizza is pretty good too but I think that their beer selection is lacking. You'll order up front then come back and get... More
