A word from Enzo and Lucia
Homemade pasta is the specialty at this Long Grove Italian restaurant housed in a former Victorian-style home on the border of Arlington Heights. Begin your delicious authtentic Italian meal with bruschetta, grilled calamari or prosciutto with melon. You will enjoy the best authentic Italian food in Chicago's Northwest Suburbs.

A daily risotto, fresh fish served whole and veal chops are among the hearty selections. Potato gnocchi is a popular dish. Homemade desserts include cannoli and tiramisu.

The candlelit main dining room in our Italian Restaurante, located upstairs, is painted green and burgundy. Wood paneling, a fireplace, French windows and well-spaced tables make for an intimate atmosphere. The view of a fountain and flower garden spells romance. A kitchen table provides a glimpse behind the scenes.

Limited outside summer seating is available.

    First time for dinner, but enjoyed a nice lunch there several years ago. Very nice. Close to home. The menu was good size. Garlic spread was "excellent". The noise level was way to loud. We will go back, however they do have a couple of tables in the kitchen for customers and we would love to eat there. The kitchen help is always a show of its own (entertainment), something we enjoy.

    Had a good experience several years ago. On this visit the food was very good with ample portions. As others have noted, the room can be noisy when the dining room is full. It's mostly guests talking; no loud music. We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation time and a table was ready in 5 minutes.

    Food was great, wine by the glass list so/so, wine list was adequate. Service was above average. Way too much noise, my wife and I were at a table for two and had to lean in and speak up to hear each other. We will give it a few months and see if they add something to tone the ambient noise down. I like an reasonably energetic restaurant but this was too much. The food was good enough that we will give it another shot though. I had the Carbonara and my wife had tortellini both very tasty.

    I hope they can work the bugs out, because this used to be a real good restaurant. Service was poor, but I assume this is do to everyone being new. Staff actually fought with each other on the main dining floor. This will probably correct itself. However, the food was strictly reheated food service fare. Which is fine for a small, economical corner restaurant, but for a $75 bill for 2 adults and 2 kids menu items with one glass of wine total and no appetizers or dessert, it is not an appropriate price point. I would have been fine paying more for better quality, and this space could support that. We did have a pleasant time, but the meal was completely forgettable.

    The black ink pasta was delicious. Our guests ordered chicken and veal dishes and each one was quite pleased. Price was quite reasonable for the quality of food. However , the noise level was high and the the room got warm apparently due to a breakdown in the air conditioning. The staff were courteous and friendly however food delivery was rather slow. This could be attributed to the big volume of diners that night.

    We found this restaurant around the corner from where we stay. It's located in a small quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. The place was cozy it almost look like your mother's dining room just with a lot of tables. The food and service was outstanding. It was a little nosy only because the dinning area was small but overall it was a great experience. We will definitely go back.

    We had a wonderful dinner experience for eight last week. Friendly, curteous service and terrific food. Highly recommend anything "Enzo" style as it is prepared with asparagus and melted fontina cheese. ( I had the veal). Others had dishes ranging from salmon, pasta with seafood and chicken. All said the preparations were delicious. Setting is in an old house with 2 main dining rooms on different levels and a lovely outdoor setting facing the heart of Long Grove.

    More than enough to eat. They were too heavy on the melted cheese (on my chicken dish) for me but I would definitely recommend the tiramisu. If the room is full it is a bit loud so not good for conversation if you're soft-spoken. Service was excellent. Someone was always filling up my water glass! I would definitely go back but I might order something different next time or ask for less cheese on my chicken.

    This was my second visit and I came specifically for Salmon puttenesca as my last visit, I tasted my cousin's & fell in love with it! This sauce is a marinara type base with Kalamata olives over salmon with pasta. The menu nor specials featured this Entree. Thankfully our waiter said they could prepare it for me. This dish along with an Australian Shiraz, their crusty bread with chopped fresh garlic & olive oil pleased this Italian girl immensely! Our previously perfect outside table became too chilly and our waiter was kind to move us indoors to the bar for cappucino & desert. The bartender was very kind to offer a lemoncello which was refreshing & fun. The lemon Italian ice served in a hollowed lemon peel was light & refreshing.

    It was our first time going to Enzo and Lucia. I thought this would be a great Italian restaurant to bring my husband to celebrate his birthday. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The service as well as the food was excellent. Starting with appetizers, there was plenty of food right down to dinner. Dessert was mouth watering and very tasty. I felt that I was right at home and mom was cooking in the kitchen. I would strongly recommend this restaurant . Planning to go back there to take my mom for Mother' Day.

    We are semi-regulars at Enzo and Lucia's; we live very nearby. We find that consistently, it is a warm and happy dining experience with fantastic made-to-order Italian food. Lucia, one of the owners, welcomes you as if you are an honored guest in her home and you can see her constantly in movement around the restaurant, managing in a very hands-on way, doing everything from changing tablecloths to tending bar. The restaurant attracts many families celebrating special occasions, as well as couples and groups of friends. I would describe the atmosphere as "festive-casual," not at all intimidating or "fancy." The nightly special menu selections are not to be missed - everything from freshly made pasta creations to whole fish.

    It is our "go to" spot. From the minute you enter the bar area, you are made to feel welcome. The food is the best! One of the specials was the stuffed pork chop - - it was excellent. My friends each had steaks and they raved. The pasta dishes are always top-notch - - my favorite is "Farfalle Ala Donna" - - I can't describe how wonderful it is. Go, go, go! You'll be so glad you did.

The garlic and bread were great, the seafood appetizers were fresh and delicious, the entrees were perfect (the whole see bass was very good). The only downside was the wine pour was short...however cocktail was fine. Can't wait to go back ...simply the best!!

    There were 4 in our party. We were greeted promptly and the host was very friendly. We were seated immediately at our reservation time. The tables are very close together and it was hard not to disturb the people at the next tables when sitting down. Hard to get comfortable during the whole dinner. Our server was friendly and attentive most of the meal, but disappeared at times. Food was very good. Very noisy. Because of crowded tables and noise, would not go back.

    Went with a group of six. Dining room was full and very noisy, making conversation difficult. The food, however, was excellent and the portions generous. The leftovers were enough for an abundant lunch for two people the next day. They also have Italian gelato and chocolate tartufo which was the real deal. I'll go back again, but next time after 8 pm when the dining room is not as crowded and the noise level becomes bearable.

    I have been to Enzo's many times and unfortunately this last trip was a little disappointing. While my food wasn't bad, I had linguine and clams, it wasn't that memorable either. On the other hand my dining companion had chicken limon and had to send it back because it was overcooked, dry, and tasteless . Maybe it was an off nought or they were too busy but it will be awhile before we come back.

    The location on Navy Pier with all the 'foodcourt style' eateries surronding it would leave you to expect a substandard establishment. It was in fact a very well run, reasonably well appointed restaurant that had a expansive menu and the food was very good. The main dining room is separate from the general bar area being located on the second floor. That separate location is a real plus. Even though we arrived at the height of a Mardi Gras bar hopping event hosted by Navy Pier that had thousands of revelers everywhere including the bar area of Rivas they immediately honored our reservation and seated us. Each food item we ordered was judged as either very good or excellent. Highly recommend trying Riva.
