LETS OPEN OUR STATE HELP THESE BUSINESSES SURVIVE!!!!
Even in the outdoor tent, the food and service was amazingly great! We had a wonderful experience and definitely will be back on our next trip!
Outstanding service and food. I have been going here for years
Great food and service!
We were very pleased with the tent. It was nice and warm.
We consider Cafe Lucci our home away from home. We were in town for business and had to go there for dinner. Bobby treats you like family and our server Nahu is great!
If you live local to them, we envy you. Hopefully we are back for business soon and another great dining experience!
Excellent food! Can't wait until indoors opens back up.
Simply the best Italian food outside the city.
Great service , tent was warm on NYE and we were done in one hour.
Great option to eat “out” literally during the virus n winter!
The food and service was amazing.
Tent was warm and comfortable.
Great food and good value.
Definitely we will be back.
The Service, Food and Wine are top notch. Love the menu, cocktails and wine lost.
The food is always wonderful. I live in Palatine and drive there whenever I can. They’ve done a great job with outside eating and I look forward to going back in.
Found this place reading through a private Facebook group for local moms. It did it disappoint! The manager, Heather, was phenomenal!
The tent was warm and ventilated.
We had the barbabiatole and arugula salads, burrata (perfectly salted and delicious), muscles with white wine (yuuummmmmm), rigatoni with eggplant, chicken with artichokes, and seafood strew. Rigatoni was my least favorite—however it was still Delicious!!!!!!!
Service was wonderful! We had a beautiful and relaxing dinner before going to see the lightscape at the gardens!
Must go back!!!!
Outstanding food, beverages and service. Eating in a tent at 35 degrees with high winds and a heater with power issues for the first half of the meal. This was my first visit and would return after they resume regular indoor seating.
Their outdoor setup is very safe and fun. Food is outstanding. Super nice waiters and owner. Will definitely go again!
Cafe Lucci never disappoints! Excellent food, outstanding service!
It was very good and tent was pretty warm too!
A wonderful meal and service at Cafe Lucci’s! The heated tent is very warm.
Always a family favorite & a great gluten free menu
Great service! Went above and beyond for our 3 kids
They always make everyone feel welcome and the food terrific
It was my husband’s birthday. He said it was the best pork chop he ever had. Great martini. Service was EXCELLENT! Waiters were very attentive and gave guidance on choosing a wine for me.
Definitely will return to this Glenview gem. Carry out is in our future until fine in returns.
Great food, great service with Edmund.....always special!! Thanks for an enjoyable anniversary dinner!!! The tables are well spaced and with an early reservation we felt very comfortable and safe eating out in our COVID world. We need to visit more often to support this gem.
Dinner is always delicious at Cafe Lucciand Bobby has everything done right so you feel safe to eat there. We ate inside and the tables were well spaced apart. Recommend Cafe Lucci alwats!
I have reviewed Cafe Lucci before. It is my go-to North Shore place. This was my first time back since covid hit and it was a perfect experience. Great food made by a team that has been together for over 20 years, great service by true professionals and a warm welcome back from the owner. Seriously, I don't know how you go wrong here. By the way, arrive very hungry. You'll leave very full.
I am a long time customer and this restaurant is always outstanding. It's my favorite restaurant in the suburbs. The food is innovative but classic. Always well prepared. The staff is exceptionally knowledgeable. The wine list and prices are stellar. I highly recommend and I return quite frequently.
We ate in the tent. The heating system Cafe LUCCI installed is marvelous. Just like eating in a warm home. The food and service was excellent. Bobby the owner recommended
a cocktail for my wife which she loved. The wine selection I had was super.
Need to keep tables further apart need to have tent open need to wear masks especially the owner he needs to keep mask over his nose. We need to be safe and need to follow the rules.
Always outstanding ! Wonderful staff from the minute you arrive !
Their menu was full, fresh and delicious!WeI will return soon!
The food was great and the service was excellent. Nagy, our waiter, was attentive and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
This was our first time here and we had heard rave reviews about it. We can see why!
I had the Veal Madeira - excellent! Will definitely return and hope to go inside next time to see what the restaurant looks like.
Great food. Great service.
Team always outstanding. Food spectacular
Outstanding as always. Didn’t love the outdoor area with traffic going by on Milwaukee ave but that couldnt be helped under current circumstances. Food and service was fantastic.
One of our favorite restaurants around. Excellent food, large menu with interesting and complex options, etc.
Attentive, long standing staff, friendly owners and great ambience.
Cafe Lucci made us a wonderful anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and came out at the perfect pace. Our waiter was funny and competent. You can't go wrong going to Cafe Lucci!
Love to be a repeat customer. The crab cakes and garlic dip are to die for and are the best I have ever had.
Keep up the good work!
Food was terrific and we ate very safely in the tent.
I had the best meal at Cafe Lucci this past weekend. Lobster Risotto!! The lobster was the best I have ever had - it came to my table hot (lobster always seems to get cold quickly) and was super tender and buttery. My family chose this entree as our appetizer (great way to start the meal) and was a good size for our table of 3. I ordered Harry's Fettuccine for dinner - our waiter was very accommodating when I asked to substitute Rigatoni for the Fettuccine noodles. Everything was DELICIOUS!!! Dessert was the Sticky Toffee, which was just as good as the rest of the meal. Service was friendly and attentive. We sat in the tent in front of the restaurant. The weather was a little chilly this night, but I sat near the heater in the tent and it was perfect. Highly recommend and I plan on going back again soon!
