This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the Chicagoland area. Everything here tastes great, because Everything is made fresh and has a delicious flavor. There are so many menu items to choose from, and when you arrive, there is also a chalkboard full of specials (at least 20 +) that are not on the regular menu. Our family likes to order multiple items and share. The Swordfish Vesuvio is out-of-this-world fantastic, and so are the desserts! The service is consistently very good, and there is also complimentary valet parking. Mangia and enjoy!

On a quick trip into the Chicago/Genview area, web searching suggested Cafe Lucci. You will enjoy your meal! Service very attentive, all food clearly fresh and prepared entirely in-house. You can taste the attention to detail. Veal dishes were outstanding, and the desserts are worth saving room for. Worth the drive for us. (120 miles)

We have eaten at Cafe Lucci twice now. On both occasions the greeting was warm, the service efficient and friendly, and the food excellent. The food takes time to come to the table, but of course this is because it is all freshly cooked, not pulled out of a freezer and popped into a microwave. Give it a try, it is a little bit out of the way, but well worth a visit.

Cafe Lucci is our favorite restaurant. We eat there frequently. It has an extensive menu and regularly offers a long list of specials. The preparation and service are incredibly consistent. We have never had anything short of a great meal at Cafe Lucci. Family and friends have joined us on numerous occasions and the response is always the same... "that was an amazing meal." Our favorite starters include the crabcakes, grilled octopus and arugula salad. For entrees, try any of the fish specials. You will not be disappointed! No one does fish better than Cafe Lucci. If meat is your choice, try any of the veal dishes or if you are lucky enough to be there on an evening when Augie's famous short ribs are offered... go for it. They are wonderful and you will probably have enough left over for another meal. For pasta, the lobster or mushroom raviolis are excellent or try any type of pasta with whatever ragu is being prepared that evening. Dinner would not be complete without a nice glass (or two) of wine. Cafe Lucci has a lengthy wine list with a wide range of selections and broad price range. You can choose by yourself or get some help. Either way you will find a great match for your food. The atmosphere at Cafe Lucci is casual and friendly. As a result, when the dining room is packed, the noise level can get elevated... not a problem, but something to be aware of. If you are looking for a quiet little spot, not the right choice. If you are looking for a place to have a great meal, wonderful wine and enjoy the company of family and friends, Cafe Lucci is the place. We recommend Cafe Lucci to all of our friends and family. Give it a try and it will become one of your favorites too!

We saw this unique place driving to our hotel and when the manager recommended it - had to stop! The food was authentic/the wine list impressive and the staff wonderful - we had a great meal and finished with the best cannoli and chocolate gelato! Bravo!
