We travel a lot and appreciate good Italian food and this did not disappoint. My wife had pasta with eggplant and she enjoyed it thoroughly. I ordered veal parmesan with eggplant and fresh basil. The portion covered my plate and well prepared. The atmosphere in the back room is nicer. We will go back.

This was our second visit to Cafe Lucci. We love the delicious food. The specials are always unique and delicious. Great service each time. Impressive wine selection as well. If you like mussels, you must try them here.

We've been there a few times on weekend nights. It's always very busy and very loud. The food is ok, not great, but the prices are high for pasta dishes. I know Cafe Lucci has a loyal following but I'm not sure I understand why.

My husband and I love Cafe Lucci. All the food is fresh and prepared daily. The pasta is outstanding and all of the food on the menu uses the freshest ingredients. The staff is attentive and the owner is usually there greeting customers and making sure everyone is happy with their meal. Highly recommend but make a reservation, it usually... More

Haven't been here in quite awhile, so thought I'd give it another shot to see how it has fared over the years. So glad I did. They have updated their menu since the last time I was there, so delicious! The service was awesome, loved our waiter...the service was on spot! We will be back for sure...!!!

I lived in Chicago 17 years ago and went often for dinner at Café Lucci. During my recent trip I returned and was thrilled to find it was still a great restaurant. It is family owned and it shows. Impeccable service from a knowledgeable service team all served with perfect timing. All the food is great from start to finish... More

Not your mama's Italian! So much to choose! Appetizers (escargot, salumi, bruschetta, calamari and more); salads, pasta, beef, chicken, veal...check out the menu before going or you'll be deciding for a long time. Also has lunch and dinner banquet menus with a number of package choices and price points. Unassuming from the outside. De-lish on the inside. Burp.

I love trying new, non-chain restaurants when traveling and this one did not disappoint. We made a reservation the day of, which also happened to be a Saturday night and were seated upon arrival. Menu is a little bit different and although what we ordered wasn't exactly what we expected, it was very good! It is a loud dining room... More
