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.

Diner Reviews
  • "Enjoyed the food and good service. However, the noise level was so high it made normal conversation almost impossible. Might not return for this reason alone. There is a metal ceiling which probably doesn't help."

  • "The garlic spread is soo delicious with the Italian warm bread. The salmon puttanesca with pasta was very flavorful as well as the veal Francesca. We will definitely return."

  • "Food and Service were great as was the humor of Lucia when we " stole " a table in a lower but cooler segment of the restaurant. Only issue was the AC...otherwise....fun place to go in the Neighborhood."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Enzo and Lucia's, as always, was great food and service. One of our favorite restaurants. It was packed Saturday night so the noise level was high."

  • "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. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "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. "

  • "The food was excellent. Very tasty and good-sized portions. The service was incredibly good -- friendly, fast and accommodating. The owner is present and presides in a very welcoming fashion. And, the price is right."

  • "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."

  • "One of our favorite restaurants! Always great food and very friendly people. There were six of us there on Sunday (including two children) and everyone loved their food. Ten years ago we had our son's rehearsal dinner there and that was fabulous, too. We have been there many times over the years for lunch and dinner. Always great!"

  • "Our title of this review really says it all! From the moment we walked in we were greeted and seated without waiting. 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."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "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."

  • "Despite being seated 30 minutes after our original reservation time... this restaurant was a gem! It's nestled in scenic Long Grove and definitely draws an older local crowd. I would describe the menu as non-traditional Italian - very unique dishes and moderate price tags... The owners are on-site and popped around to all of the tables to say hello. When the wife saw that we couldn't be seated right away she hopped behind the bar and poured us a glass of wine on the house to enjoy while we waited. If you go - wait to be seated upstairs - It's worth it! The dining area is cute and cozy, but the acoustics make it a little noisy. The food is amazing and the service is even better. Our new favorite restaurant!"

  • "It was the first time we have been there. I was pleasantly surprised that for a busy Valentines day dinner there weren't any unplanned hiccups. The restaurant service was busy but not chaotic. Service was good, food was good, and I am sure we will probably be back, especially if they have outdoor dinning in the summer."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "So grateful Enzo & Lucia's is open again after their recent fire. The food is still as terrific and the restaurant has been re-modeled. One of my favorites to order is the eggplant parmesan, but their fresh fish dishes, as well as the homemade desserts are all out-of-this-world! You can't go wrong with anything you order there...."

  • "We brought out-of-town friends here for dinner just about 10 days after our previous visit. Foods was great once again. Our friend Jim owns a restaurant in Virginia and he was very impressed with the menu, the prices and the food when it came! We live very nearby and have been customers for years and will continue to be. Nice to have a great place to eat "in the neighborhood." More locals should visit."

  • "We missed Enjo and Lucia while they were closed. They are back and the food was better than ever. Whether just for appetizers (try the baked clams and mussels) or a full dinner, the food is good old Italian like we used to eat. Lucia always is a joy to see and will lift your spirits any time of year. Give the restaurant a try...you will not be sorry."
