Move over portillo’s! This is the place to come for an Italian beef sandwich. We happened to stumble across this place looking for a quick bite while exploring the neighborhood. This restaurant has a deli section where you grab a to go box where you can order a sandwich or dessert. The other part of the restaurant is a sit... More

Visiting Chicago for the weekend, just walking around the neighborhood, and we stumbled up this restaurant. We decided to order from the deli as we weren't super hungry nor were we properly dressed for the restaurant side. Fortunately for us, the deli side was superb. We enjoyed a delicious hot Italian beef sandwich and a decadent cannoli. We were very... More

For people who grew up in a heavily Italian culture, eating out is always a dicey proposition. No matter the quality, the food usually doesn't measure up to what we were raised on. This is particularly true if your family was from the north of Italy. Most of the huge immigration wave from Italy was from the south, with the... More

I've never dined-in, just been a deli patron. Their deli prices are quite good for the area and the portions are absolutely amazing. They have a nice menu and fairly decent food. They do tend to use WAY too much oil on the sandwiches some time, so it's good to specify if you don't want them to overdo it. Their... More

Loved this place!! 6 of is went and all had great meals. Our waitress had some good recommendations. I love that this is BYOB with no corking fee. The only downfall is they only allow 2 cards to use per table. So bring cash.

We had a bachelorette dinner here on a Saturday. When I called to make the reservation, Dominic the owner took the call, and said they'd even open a little early for us! They were ready right on time, and had the best service! They knew we had to be out by a certain time, and made sure we all received... More

Lucia's is conveniently located across the street to my friend's new apartment in Chicago. While visiting her last weekend, we decided to try the food one night and were very disappointed. We were really hungry and looking forward to an Italian meal, but the portions were small for the money ($23+ for a small square of lasagna) and tasted terrible.... More

My brother and I went to Walgreens, bought a bottle of wine, and brought it here to pass some time before a show. They seated up immediately. We were only interested in appetizers since we had a big lunch and I had my heart set on a cheese plate but they didn't have one on the menu. So I asked... More

Have tried it a couple times, and just leave underwhelmed and feeling like we over paid. Calamari was pretty good.

I lived for years within a few blocks of this place. I have eaten in the small restaurant in the back but my real knowledge is of the deli in the front. The last itme I ate here was in April on a visit to town. I had the Yale as always, which is proscuitto, cappicola, fresh mozzarella, fresh tomato... More
