    The review I just read on TripAdvisor was not very favorable, so it made me want to write this review. Our meal was awesome and we have had authentic Italian in other areas of the world. The salad was packed full of cucumbers, tomato's and shredded carrots. We had one the house dressing and one with the creamy garlic. The creamy garlic dressing is definitely my favorite. We always make sure we go to DaLuciano when we can. Since it's about a 4 hour drive, when we visit Chicago, we make time for a great gluten free meal or two at Da Luciano. The last time we were there the owners were so friendly and paid special attention to our child. A couple the boys (with Celiac) also had come out to talk to him. This time the server was incredibly attentive and friendly. We were there a couple times, so it may sound like we over ordered (which we did), and we had great left overs to cart back home with us. I just finished eating one of the meals for lunch today! For appetizers we ordered: Grigliata di Pesce - This is a large plate with octopus, squid and grilled shrimp over a bed of spinach and roasted red/green peppers. The peppers and spinach were seasoned to perfection and the grilled shrimp was awesome. Wish there would have been more shrimp on the appetizer. The squid and octopus were okay. Fried Mozzarella Wedges - I have tried on several occasions to make fried cheese wedges (gluten free), but have failed miserably. These were crunchy, tasty and served with a marinara sauce. We ordered: Pasta Boscaiola - Sausage and mushrooms in a light tomato cream sauce - This dish was one of our new favorites. It was so good. The light tomato cream sauce was amazing! Pasta Porcini - Porcini mushrooms in a light cream sauce - Another very good meal for sure and lots of left overs! Chicken Vesuvio - with versuvio potato's. The oil/veggies and seasoning on this meal was wonderful. Meat Ravioli - Again the ravioli was stuffed very full and I could not eat all my meal for sure! Pepperoni and cheese pizza - Our son likes their pizza a lot. Wish we could get a deep dish pizza that was gluten free. For dessert over the couple of days we had: Cannoli's - that were awesome Lemon Ice that is perfect for cleaning the palate and soothing the stomach Tiramisu - If you aren't a chocolate fan you may not prefer this, but I like the cake portion and the cream portion. Cupcakes Ok any time you can go to a restaurant and actually order appetizers, entree's and desserts that are gluten free, it's a good day and that's why we try to go to Da Luciano any time we are any where near Chicago. Thanks for another great visit!!!! We'll see you again in a few months (well after winter any way).

    One word, lasagna! I never thought I'd get AND enjoy lasagna again. They have a huge GF menu, not just a couple items added onto their menu. And the prices were quite reasonable too. We'll be back to try everything on the menu. And the staff was friendly too.

    Gone are the days where the only two things for you in the menu are a small personal pizza or a serving of brittle pasta. They have a HUGE GF menu, and the food is fantastic!

    Amazing! First time in 4 years I have been offered fried calamari and fried mozzarella sticks oh, and breaded chicken Parmesan, and a cannoli and did I mention bread! I am a native to Chicago and moved to LA and come home to visit often. I now go to Da luciano multiple times often a few days in a row each trip and won't stop. I am craving it now deliver to my hotel in rosemont!!!

    I'm highly sensitive to gluten and have been for three years. This place is the best gluten-free celiac friendly restaurants I've ever seen. The owners and most of the staff are celiac. Definitely the best Italian food I've ever had. I've been there probably 10 times. I've never had any issues with getting sick
