Fantastic every time! Bobby and his team always have hospitality as their first priority with great food and service a close 1b. Great spot and don’t forget to try the veal and Tiramisu...they won’t disappoint!
Terrific food, service and ambiance. A wonderful night out!
It's always been a great place to dine. I have been going there for many years
It was awesome!
Usually I would give Cafe Lucci 5 stars but Mother’s Day was a great disappointment. First of all I specified on my reservation that I had 2 handicapped seniors with walkers. Why then were we seated way in the back room? There was absolutely no space for the walker to get through. Then we were seated in a small alcove that served as an echo chamber. The noise was deafening loud. We did not stay for dessert. I’ve been to the German hafbrahaus with a live band that wasn’t as loud! While food for five was excellent one dish undercooked. Then when leaving had to wait for servers to remove serving station so we could let the handicapped people through. Then had to move people to get thru the restaurant
Cafe Lucci is the best place for Italian food in all the Northshore!!!
Outstanding service , food and wine list incredible
The food was delicious and we had a great server.
A birthday celebration
Dinner with friends
Simply the best restaurant for Italian food we have had in many years!!!
Wonderful experience . Food was delicious . Especially appreciated the server making sure my husband ‘s meal was gluten free . The chef
Actually came to the table to debone the brazino which was amazing - a real show .
Great Service all around. Highly recommended! Pulled up and immediately impressed. Parking, food, service, and my fiance's birthday cake all 5 star.
The food was very good, and the service exceptionally good. The main dining room is very crowded and extremely noisy. The menu is long and informative, but it could be improved by correcting the mistakes: "complimenti" is a misspelling for "complementi" (i.e. complements), and I don't think that they really charge $650 for a side of asparagus.
I specifically asked for a Darren to take care of my son and his date. My son asked for the chef selections like Darren does for us and the server said, “That isn’t a thing.” It was very embarrassing for my son in front of his date. I am very disappointed in the service. My husband and I usually receive excellent service and Darren gives us a chef selected meal. Not happy.
Extensive menu with excellent choices for every course. Attentive service, although not exactly personable on this most recent visit. A few wines by the glass, but primarily sold by the bottle. Each course is ala carte. Nice presentation, excellent pasta.
We had an excellent meal, the gnocchi was delicious, salads creative, it can be a bit noisy when the room is full.
We haven't been here in a while and need to remember to come more often. Food was delicious, nice variety of Italian favorites! Food delicious and reasonably priced Good wine list and pleasant staff made our evening really enjoyable.
Great birthday experience for the mother in law
1st Anniversary with my beautiful wife and 3 stepchildren. Service is always amazing and they helped us celebrate with a complimentary dessert.
I've been to Cafe Lucci a number of times. I only go back because the food is good and when I want a slightly above casual dining experience. However, I learn to not expect much service and not be offended by the casual and unfriendly manner of the hostess and server. Of note: It is a noisy dining area - had to scream to carry a conversation.
We had an enjoyable evening with friends. The service and food were great. The atmosphere was lively.
We will go back!
Went on a Sunday night. It was pretty empty. Wait staff was very friendly. Food is very fresh.
We made a reservation to sit at the bar. Linda is a wonderful bartender and server. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Service , food ,drinks and atmosphere were great, as always.
Food was fantastic. Service was great. Only issue was on a Saturday night, it was very loud and hard to hear others at table.
We found the service to be excellent, the food was
What I call
“Old School” Italian which was tremendous. The atmosphere was nice and the overall experience was great.
This place truly is a hidden gem.
Incredible. Staff always kind, helpful, and professional. Food is superior to any restaurant in the area.
Enjoyed a lovely Easter dinner at Cafe Lucci. We had a 3:45 reservation and enjoyed a nice leisurely dinner. Service is always attentive without being intrusive. The octopus appetizer was grilled perfectly, delicious and succulent, and the mini heirloom tomatoes in vinigarette were the right counterpoint to the octopus. Rack of lamb, one of my favorites, was cooked perfectly to a medium rare. Sister-in-law said the lobster-filled ravioli was perfect, and my brother's-in-law steak was grilled to his liking. We had an enjoyable time and excellent food and service.
Took my family for Easter dinner. Service and food both excellent. Did a superb job handling the holiday crowd.
Always the best food and service. I’ve never been disappointed.
I have been coming here for years. The food and service have been excellent consistently. We were a party of eight and I heard no complaints and this is a group that doesn't hesitate to complain.
It starts with the bread which is served warm and comes with a roasted garlic spread and marinated veggies - carrots, celery, onion, and fennel. I typically stay away from bread but can't help myself here.
First course choices were octopus, Caesar salad, burrata and house salad, all very good. Other apps I've had in the past that I liked were carpaccio, shrimp, soups and salads. Everything is fresh and flavorful.
My favorite item on the menu is the gnocchi macchinato. The veal ragout on the gnocchi is great on pasta as well. I've really enjoyed the veal in several preparations as well as the fish and beef entrees. It's hard to go wrong.
Everyone had canoli which has the right amount of crispiness in the shell and properly flavored cream filling. Oh dear, getting hungry just thinking about it.
The tab runs on the higher side but the quality you get is worth it. When the room is full it can be a little loud but not unbearable. There's a nice bar to sit at if you wait but I recommend making a reservation. Complimentary valet parking is a nice touch.
Cafe Lucci is hands down one of my favorite restaurants! The owner and his staff are always welcoming, and their food is incredible. I have been delighted to introduce friends to this place, and we always leave happy, and beyond satisfied with our meals. If you want a quaint, Italian restaurant, then Cafe Lucci is the place to go.
The food, as always, along with the service was exceptional.
Cafe Lucci never lets me down. Perfect again from start to finish. This place is a jewel!
Been here before. Would come again. Friendly, well stocked bar, good food and service. Priced accordingly.
Nice evening with friends. Food was good and service was attentive.
I love the idea of Cafe Lucia - a nice standalone, wide variety of choices, on the west side of Glenview. And each time I've been here, the service is excellent- from the valet to the host/hostess, to the wait staff! Never had an issue here. My only issue is the food and pricing in terms of value analysis. The meals are not bad, but neither do they stand out. And when you compare their prices, there are many less expensive options that leave you wanting more. I will say that there has been a trend for many years where they bring you your meal and tell you to be careful due to the hot plate. Should be a good thing due to a hot meal fresh off the stove, right? But the reality is the plate is hot and the meal does not match the plate. On top of that, the pasta dish was a bit crusty on top. While it came out with good timing, clearly it had been sitting for some time under a heat lamp or similar. No one stirred it and refreshed it. Finally it was not bad and not great - same as my previous experiences. The calamari appetizer was okay. The last two times I was there, my dates had good meals, not great. The pricing is more reminiscent of downtown is my value issue and versus other steak, seafood, and pasta pricing for very good meals in the north and northwest suburbs.
Again, excellent service and ambiance, but food and pricing could use a makeover.
Always a wonderful experience at Café Lucci!
A little on the noisy side but the food and service make up for the noise.
