I love Italian food and am always hunting for that elusive great place; be it fine dining or a neighborhood spot. One thing I love is the smell of garlic which is a key component of many fine Italian dishes. I made reservation and requested a boot as deplore sitting at a two top (lack of space on the table),...

Located in one of Chicago's residential neighborhoods, Club Lucky offers a variety of tasty Italian options (chicken parmigiana is a favorite there)! Get set for a large portion for each course of the meal. Lots of seating, though reservation is recommended. Fun bar area too.

Great business/social dinner at Club Lucky. Old time supper club atmosphere. Good food, ambiance, great service. Italian specialties, but the menu is more than just Italian. Opened with a round of martinis and cheese/meat board. Dinner was exceptional from Italian, to lamb chops, to ribs. Never even opened the menu, our server made excellent suggestions. Good choice for business, family,... More

Traditional Italian restaurant with very good food. The eggplant parmigiana is perhaps the best in chicago. This is a favorite restaurant for lunch by some city employees who can go anywhere. In the summer there are some sidewalk tables which are dog friendly. For hearty Italian fare, hard to beat.

We were visiting our adult children in Chicago who chose Club Lucky to meet for dinner. They raved about the food, atmosphere and service, and it did not disappoint. We had reservations for 6:45 and were sat immediately. The server was attentive without being intrusive. So important. We ordered the meatball/salad and sausage/peppers appetizers for the table and they were... More

A neighborhood Bar and Restaurant that will not disappoint. Very friendly staff. Great drinks and lots of places to sit inside and out. Had bruschetta as an appetizer and it was very good. Food was also very good, very good pasta dishes. Sat outside, great area, perfect neighborhood place.

The iron corner pole, the glass blocks around the windows, the linoleum floors all described a neighborhood corner bar, (once) ubiquitous in ethnic neighborhoods. I was in the area in the 80's-- still a little dicey and edgey area. It's now a showcase for Architectural Digest homes, with good and bad consequences. We were there to celebrate a colleague's birthday,... More

Great supper club with a cool retro vibe. Start with a cocktail at the bar first- they shake an awesome martini. We ordered a few dishes to taste and everything was great. We had a lot of left overs but that was ok because it all tasted better the next night if that could be possible. We have been here... More

Description
Club Lucky features the hearty pastas, fresh seafood and classic dishes of Southern Italy, and Sicily; not forgetting to mention Chicago classics such as Chicken Vesuvio. Our house specialties range from daily handmade stuffed pastas to perfectly grilled steaks & chops. A mainstay in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area for over 20 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. Our atmosphere is casual, the portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. Club Lucky is perfect for a romantic date night or a large gathering of friends and family. Good Food and Fun!
