Club Lucky Restaurant Review

: A blast from the past, this old-world Italian joint with a 40's era, supper club feel knows how to speak the language of family-style pastas, calamari, chicken Vesuvio and veal entrées. The dark, main level dining room sports a mix of booths and standalone tables, where families gather for favorites including the homemade lasagna, linguine with clams and homemade 8 Finger cavatelli with the house "special" marinara sauce. For dessert, the buttermilk chocolate layer cake always wins. Nothing beats classic martinis (espresso is a signature) at the Art Deco bar with its collection of vintage shakers and other kitschy décor.

Belgian chocolates
