I found this by chance on another site and took the drive to have a late lunch there. The restaurant is located on a corner and the patio is on the side of the building. They did a good job with landscaping to create privacy....More

Beautiful patio setting with authentic Italian food. Rivals anyplace I’ve been in Chicago. Very fresh ingredients with a constantly changing specials menu. Wonderful fish selection. Don’t miss the scallops by the way. Fun martini selection and a knowledgeable staff.

It's been a few years since I've been back to Lucrezia, and I couldn't remember why we hadn't been here sooner. I've been dying to sit outside here for years and finally got the chance this July. The outdoor seating was of course nice and...More

I work nearby and thought I would order a simple Fettuccine Alfredo to pick up and bring back to my office. Easy enough, right? So I go to THEIR website and ordered the Alfredo off the "LUNCH" menu, as it was 1:20 pm on a...More
