I tried this because it is within walking distance of MCormick Place convention center. It is a safe walk alongside a busy street. I had the jerk chicken dinner. Large portion. A bit spicy for my taste but probably fine for others. Chocolate cake was...More

There might not be a lot of seating, but the food is great a Chef Luciano's. There are many choices on the menu, and, believe me, you get a ton of tasty food. I ordered the quinoa plate with chicken, while my husband had balsamic...More

This is a bit of an odd fusion place. It offered much better value than the food court at McCormack place but I probably wouldn't recommend it otherwise. Seating is limited and in retrospect we should have gotten our food to go and carried it...More

It seems like mostly a take-out place but there are a few tables to eat in. The food ranges from Cajun to East Indian to Caribbean. The portions were more than generous. Try the ginger beer as a beverage.

The food was excellent and a great value for lunch. The ten dollar lunch special (with several choices) came with rice, beans and a drink. I had the jerk chicken which had an outstanding flavor. Why go to a fast food joint when you can...More

The salmon dish was sooooo tasty. And the spinach was good as well....almost forgot about the delicious lemonade! They also provided ice cold water while you waited for your food to be freshly made. I would recommend travelers to stop in

Description
Family owned and operated since 1982, Chef Luciano provides a wide assortment of food from which to choose. All of our items are made in house and made to order. Although we are a counter service restaurant, we are nothing like your typical fast food restaurant.
