We were there for an "After Rehearsal Dinner" in the private section. It was very comfortable for a party of 24. The calamari was the BEST I've ever had. Honestly, Everything was exceptional. Fun atmosphere as well. You can't go wrong with this place.

This fun throwback to earlier times provides an ambiance deserving of the old fashioned but well-prepared food. There is something for everyone on the large menu and service is friendly and attentive. Great bar before, or after!

Club Lucky is just fun. A busy restaurant has an old and familiar family-feel. We waited a bit for our table at a busy bar area with guests having fun. The menu option offered some well prepared starters and we all love our main meals....More

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!
