From the minute we were seated the service was top notch! Celebrating our anniversary and this being our favorite Italian restaurant, our waiter Eddie went above & beyond to make our experience the best ever! Dinner was outstanding from the grilled octopus to our special entrees! Eddie said whatever you want the chef can make it for you! He was right and my chicken lemon was outstanding! Of course we saved room for the amazing bread pudding with warm caramel sauce topped with vanilla ice cream (plus a candle that was lit to wish us a Happy Anniversary) it didn’t last long! Eddie you made our night even more special by reminiscing about our Italy vacations and the 2 shots of Lemonchello that we toasted to our love! We will be back😘
We were a group of 5 - each having a different entree . All were extremely pleased with their dish. Halibut special was exceptional as was Bobby's calimari! Loved the Lady's blush cocktail
Love this place - old school.
Great food !
We were satisfied with service, food and ambiance, but the noise level was borderline unbearable for us. Our table was near a service station, which increased the discomfort. We won’t be returning.
Outstanding flavors and textures of combinations of ingredients. Large portions from every course. Unique and traditional menu items. Had the chateaubriand special; best steak I ever had. Service is attentive and very friendly. A must try. Once you do you will be back. Love cafe Lucci. Fabulous!!
Great food and service.
Excellent food and service. Creative cocktails and nice wine selection.
Cafe Lucci is a great restaurant! The food and service is wonderful!
Great food, but the noise level was tremendous. We did have to speak very loudly to each other in order to hear one another at our table.
Darren was incredible as always. We love coming to Cafe Lucci because Darren treats us like royalty. My husband suggested try something new, but I prefer Cafe Lucci where I know that we’ll get a sensational meal, a comfortable lively atmosphere and where it feels like home. We will always be back, especially for Darren. Thank you!!!
Delicious food. Great service.
Always an awesome experience! Bobby and team do a great job of making you feel at home. Amazing food, great wine list, and a nice bar area for after dinner cocktails. I’m a fan!
As always, the service was perfect. Never feel rushed, the waiter was incredibly knowledgeable and the meal was excellent. I was however disappointed that my side pasta was cold and tasteless. I suggest they show equal care to side items. LOVE everything else about the restaurant from the valet upon arrival to leaving after dinner.
A first class experience with every meal cooked as requested and the service was excellent.
Great Italian food and good value in a nice location.
Unreasonably noisey. We could not carry on a conversation.
Food and service are fantastic. It would be nice if they would release daily specials before the day. When you call ahead, I feel I am chastised for even asking. Chef has wonderful product, but apparently a “prima Dona”.
This is the first time I found my meal much too salty. It was almost inedible.
Simply put, amazing food with great variety and SUPERB service. On a business trip and ate two consecutive nights. Everyone love every minute there!!! Will return on next business trip
Our first experience at Cafe Lucci (for our anniversary) was excellent! The service was personable, knowledgeable and efficient; the food was uniformly great, from a terrific bruschetta, a spot-on (and off-menu) chicken parmesan, and a vitello rusticana that captured both elegance and garden-fresh simplicity. Eager to visit again!
Always excellent -this time was no different. Service was super friendly, the food was perfect.
So much to choose from!
The food is consistently good! The Chicken Vesuvio is amazing (my favorite)! Wonderful home made pastas! And if you like fish, it’s fresh and quite a few choices.
The only ding I give it is the noise level in the main room. While it’s buzzing and some decent people watching, it’s difficult to have a conversation at the same table some times. Definitely recommend!!!
As ever, the food and service was excellent. This is a real gem in Glenview. I should also note how fantastic the valet guy is! Always recognizes us, shakes our hand to welcome us and has the car ready when folks are leaving... probably the best valet guy in all Chicagoland!
We stumbled upon the restaurant on our way to ORD. Sooooo glad we visited as the food and the service are amazing! We ordered the arugula salad and it was light and refreshing. The vitello pancetta and the cavatelli contandina are both super delicious and the flavors transported me back to my Italy trip back in the days. The tiramisu is a must-order as I personally have never had one better than the one at Cafe Lucci serves. Lastly, the service here is friendly and thoughtful. I am very sad that I do not live in Chicago but if I'm ever in town again, you bet I'll be coming back to Cafe Lucci.
I have been to Cafe Lucci a number of times, but never on a Saturday night. I was never aware of how uncomfortably noisy the restaurant was. This past Saturday it was so loud that it was almost impossible to hear my friend speak, and she was sitting directly across from me. We got there at 8:00, and I was hopeful that as the room cleared out, the noise level would drop to a more comfortable level. Perhaps it was the tables around us who were have lively conversations (or perhaps imbibing too much!), but the noise level never improved.
Food and service were both VERY good.
Worst Italian food I have ever had. The chicken was so tough that I couldn’t chew it. It was so noisy you couldn’t hear yourself think. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO CAFE LUCCI’S!!
Café Lucci was amazing as usual! The food, the service, the ambiance all top notch!
Consistently one of our favorite places on the North Shore!
Cafe Lucci has bee one of our favorite Italian restaurants for the last 20 years. The food is always great, service is outstanding and the atmosphere is friendly and authentic. Highly recommend, this place always delivers the best pasta and fish.
Just might be the best Italian food in the Chicagoland area. The waiters are pros and food is 2nd to none.
we have been going to this restaurant for years It was not as good as it normally is, but still a great restaurant
Old school Italian restaurant that delivers wonderful food. You can tell this is a family run business. Service was excellent. Great list of wines at reasonable prices. I have been there three times and I will go back!
Excellent food and service.
Great, Old School Italian restaurant. Excellent food and choices and better service.
Wonderful as usual. Vitello Zinfandel, superb mushroom wine reduction-ahhh!
Service and spirits as ordered and staff very good!
If you’re in the area don’t miss Lucci...
We used to enjoy this restaurant for special occasions and a splurge dinner. We haven't been here for a while and so was disappointed as it was not as remembered at all. Service: fair. We should have been offered a salad or app prior to dinner order, or with dinner order and was not. The food came too quickly and was not as upscale or good quality as we remembered. Expensive for what we got.
Wonderful food and service
We had a reservation and we were seated immediately. Our waiter was excellent. He was confident in describing the various specials and entrees. The various courses were brought out at a very comfortable pace. you did not feel rushed or that you were waiting for an extended period of time. The food was fabulous. The salads were very fresh and delicious. My husband had a veal dish which he said was very tender. I had the Cavatelli Contadina (not sure of the spelling). It was fabulous. We certainly will be back soon.
Such a wonderful place to dine. Everyone is so kind and the food is absolutely delicious. We always have a great time when we come here. Highly recommended!!
This is one of our favorite restaurants and it never disappoints! Can’t say enough wonderful compliments about it, we go there to celebrate many different special occasions. Enjoy 🎉
