One of Illinois Best Italian Restaurants and Authentic Italian Food

Chef Heraldo MartinezWe would like to officially welcome Executive Chef Heraldo Martinez to our Italian family at Enzo & Lucia!  Bringing 26 years of experience working at various Italian restaurants throughout the country, Executive Chef Heraldo draws upon his culinary training and extensive pedigree creating traditional, flavorful, and signature Italian dishes.

It's been about a few months since Heraldo took the reins at Enzo and Lucia as our new Executive Chef.  While he maintains the Italian culinary traditions, he is also determined to add his signature mark on each dish, setting the bar high for himself and his team by creating an authentic Italian experience for the clientele.

enzo-and-lucia-long-grove-back-entranceWe invite you to enjoy a delicious and authentic Southern Italian meal at Enzo and Lucia Ristorante Italiano. We use only fresh ingredients in our classic Italian dishes and cherished family recipes. Homemade Italian gourmet cappellacci stuffed with seasonal ingredients is the specialty at our Long Grove restaurant housed in a former and historic Victorian-style home erected in 1876.

Surrounded by French windows and a view of the fountain square and flower garden, our softly lit dining room is conducive to either intimate conversation or high-level business events. Seating in our bustling kitchen provides a glimpse behind the scenes.

"10 Italian Restaurants In Illinois That’ll Make Your Taste Buds Explode"
  Read article

"In Long Grove, Enzo and Lucia Ristorante is the favorite Italian restaurant. They've been a staple in the community when tragedy struck a year ago and a fire took down the restaurant. They are open again, and are better than ever. You have to try the gnocchi, and you must save room for homemade cannoli. And you might want to skip the wine. Their strawberry daiquiris are legendary."
