Description: Lonzerottis is a fine dining restaurant located in a restored train station with working tracks. The building's architecture follows the prairie school design with wide roof overhangs and hip roofs. Hardwood trim throughout the restaurant is original. Lonzerottis serves classic Italian cuisine along with new American dishes. While we are a fine dining restaurant, casual dress is welcome.

This is a great place to eat! It is a nicer place and a bit pricer than other locations in town, but any place that sells their own salad dressing around town has got to be worth it!

everything was wonderful, the service was great. We love the entree's, seafood lasagne and the ravioli. Also the New York cheesecake was a perfect ending to our meal.

Picture having dinner in a lovely dining room in an old train station depot.Soft lighting, delightful music, how romantic! The staff kindly greeting you, taking your order politely. While you wait for your authentic Italian dinner a fresh salad accompanied by melt in your mouth bread sticks arrives. Your martini is delicately made and delivered with a warm smile. Dinner arrives with the aromas of Italian Lasagna wafting and swirling about permeating your senses. The portions are very generous and meaty. The sauce, so fresh as if you were in Italy! What a delight! I can truly say that Lonzerotti's is one of the finest Italian Restaurants. I have enjoyed many of the entree's on their menu and always to my satisfaction. I recommend their decadent Seafood Lasagna, tender Salmon, rich creamy Chicken Alfredo, Broccoli Cavatelli with Grilled Chicken, Chicken Parmigiana, and The Best Steak Cut in the region! The atmosphere is warm and lovely, prompt and polite staff, generous portions and the food is delish! A hidden gem in the great state of Illinois and well worth the drive!

Let me start with the positives, central location in a very airy well lit space that was previously a train station. Service is good. Food is served quickly and efficiently. The menu is reasonably unimaginitive, but they cover the necessary bases. The house salad dressing is a sweet Itallian which is not to my taste, but is regionally very popular. As to the food, I think the quality is low. Flavor is typically provided by large amounts of low quality ingredients. For instance, the lasagne is stuffed with a phenomenal amount of cheese, but of very low quality. The sauces are overall bland. This establishment has a strong reputation, and my view is that they are living off that.

Lonzerotti's has a good, stable menu, and the bread sticks and salad are sure to please. If you're into seafood, you have to try the seafood lasagna. It's very heavy but sooooooo good! Their other pasta and meat dishes are good too, and the prices are reasonable. The old train station adds a delightful ambiance. I periodically take groups of 30-35 there during a meeting that I hold in Jacksonville, and there is enough variety there that everyone goes away happy.
