Italian
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.

Price was not unreasonable. The noise was a touch loud but the overall atmosphere was very pleasant.

Everyone loved their food. However, they really need to learn to cook Gluten free pasta. It was penne, but it was more like shredded pasta. Flavors were good, so I didn’t want to send it back.

Waitress was not the most friendly or welcoming...
Seemed stressed and impatient and not during a busy night ... inwhich I may have been a bit more understanding

I almost can not believe I have driven within a block of this restaurant for several years and was unaware of it. The service was wonderful with a warm and friendly staff who were incredibly knowledgeable. The food was homemade and very fresh. I enjoyed every bite!

Wonderful food! We had the lamb chop special and wanted to try the halibut special, but sadly it sold out. The veal picata was delicious and the roasted vegetables were great. Fantastic desserts too! Gelato, lemon cake, and tiramisu, all delicious! Nicely priced menu and a lot of wines available by the glass. They brought us each a limoncello to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. Nice touch. It was crowded and noisy on Saturday night at 7:00 pm. We had to wait a bit for our table and the bar was jammed. There really wasn’t a good place to wait - too cold outside. We will go again during the week.

Way to loud. Though they say it’s handicap accessible, it’s not. Cobblestone sidewalks makes it difficult for a walker. The lift to the eating area is a little scary. Too bad because the food was good.

We (my sister-in-law and I ) went to Enzo and Lucia to have a just the 2 of us girls' (of our generation) celebration of her birthday. It was all excellent--the food, the server, and the nice table in the corner with SUN pouring in on a cold winter day. I told her that we should order wine, to celebrate her birthday, and the waiter heard me. I had neglected to mention the occasion when I reserved, but he caught the hint, and brought us a very, very yummy slice of coconut and lemon cake with a candle on it. All around, it was the perfect destination for the occasion. We do go there "just for dinner," but, I think we need to do that more often. Really, everything was delish.

Loved bread and garlic addition to the olive oil and cheese. Homemade ravioli was to die for. Some of the best tiramisu I've ever had. Only didn't like the sea bass, tasted fishy.
