About

Club Lucky features the hearty pastas, fresh seafood and classic dishes of Southern Italy, and Sicily; not to mention Chicago classics such as Chicken Vesuvio. House specialties range from daily hand-made stuffed pastas to perfectly grilled steaks & chops. A mainstay in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area for over 23 years, upon entering you find brick walls, formica tables, and oversized Naugahyde booths that provide a genuine design element to complement “grandmother's recipes” on the Italian menu. All sauces & pastas are made on-site, and each recipe is made with what the Owners call “a little bit of love.” Some of the most sought-after dishes are the Lamb Chops, Antipasti Platters and Spinach Lasagna. Desserts are all housemade as well, with the profiteroles being the most popular. Minutes from downtown hotels, theaters, and the United Center. Hotel Concierge and/or their guests enjoy VIP reservations. Our atmosphere is casual, the portions are generous and the prices are reasonable.

Food was not great at all. Wasn't much better than Chef Boyardee. Wasn't worth the cost. Had a problem with where we were seated. The staff believes it is okay to have other customers invade your personal space to the point where they are literally touching you. Manager rolled his eyes at my husband when he asked for the check (we wanted to cancel our orders as we were not having a nice dining experience with the other guy in my husbands lap). They did move us eventually, but not without attitude and then telling us that the guy that was invading my husbands personal space was some sort of celebrity so they didn't want to ask him to pull his chair in a little. *(&$ that!

We've been going to Club Lucky for years. It's always dependable to have a good meal and a great ambience for a birthday or a dinner out.

Always a good choice to go to Club Lucky. We were going pre Blackhawks game. We were able to make a reservation. We could valet park but actually found a spot in the neighborhood. Got a great round table for 8 in the middle of the action. Great service. Amazing martinis. Good wine. Excellent food. The bread is outstanding too. Loved it. Well paced meal. Will definitely go back. It’s a favorite. Consistently Terrific.

Great neighborhood place. The baked clams were great. Very fresh ingredients. Try the chicken vesuvio. All dishes were tasty.
Service was friendly and attentive.
Crowded but worth the wait

Always love Club Lucky -- food was great -- but wish they had better dining options for a table of 2. The 2 tops seem to either be scrunched against a wall that is an aisle or next to a table with a lot of kids -- or sidelined in the back room which is just not all that pretty. They should add more ambiance to the back room and make it adults only or do something else so that smaller groups can feel more cozy and comfortable. Note that they did have booths and even though we came early and a few of the booths were open, they said they were "reserved," which was disappointing.

I was very impressed by this place. The food was delicious. The fried calamari was extremely tender and not at all overbreaded. The chicken parm was also really tender and flavorful. I would definitely go here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious meal with some solid portions. The cocktails were also delicious.

This was our 1st visit. The kitchen couldn't have been more accommodating, with mixing, matching, and adding ingredients. My pasta with arribiata was some of the best I've EVER eaten, and my husband was thrilled with his chicken parmesan. The other 2 entrees (salmon and a filled pasta) were also well received. Service could have been better, as our drinks took an eternity, though the martinis were delightful. And the 2 year old that was with us got something other than what was ordered for her. Even the Italian cookies we had for dessert were really good. We can't wait to return.

Always an awesome experience at Club Lucky. We had a reservation for 12 at 7:45. They were so accommodating and efficient with our group on a Saturday night during a holiday weekend. Food has been delicious and consistent for years. Our service was wonderful (thanks Jana) and we never had empty wine glasses. They replenished our bread, filled waters and cleared the tables seamlessly. So appreciative of a great dining experience.

Went to Club Lucky for the first time. The ambiance, service, drinks and food were phenomenal. The food was tasty, melt in your mouth and not too rich.
Drinks were great; strong. This restaurant is a far drive for us, but I can't wait to return.
