Lucrezia® Café

Dining in the Indiana Dunes Area


Readers of The Times Newspaper have voted Lucrezia® Café the area’s #1 Best Italian Restaurant, Best of the Region, and #1 Best Italian Neighbor’s Choice Award—and for good reason.


You’ll find Lucrezia Café in downtown Chesterton, an art-centric Indiana Dunes community just a few miles south of Lake Michigan. The dining experience is formal yet friendly, with an eclectic atmosphere that has attracted locals, Chicagoans, and celebrities since 1998.

Eat & Drink

Everything on their award-winning menu is made to order from scratch—even the desserts. Savor magnificent creations like rigatoni with smoked chicken, braised lamb shank, or “won’t-find-it-fresher” grilled wild salmon (bought directly from a fisherman in Kodiak, Alaska). Don’t miss dining alfresco in Lucrezia’s brick-paved, private garden.


Grab a signature martini, cocktail, or selection from their sophisticated wine list, and relax beneath the branches of the Indiana Dunes area’s tallest Japanese maple. And while you’re at it, check out some other amazing eateries on Midwest Living’s Indiana Dunes Culinary Tour.
