- Good food,slow serviceGregVIPDined on 9/20/2014We live in the area but never tried this restaurant. We invited friends to join us for a dinner. Once seated we had to ask a bus boy to find our waiter. They appeared to be short on staff as we were always waiting for our drinks and food. A pricey place like this should have better service.Special Features:
- Good food.TbagilitoDined on 9/18/2014The food was good. The service was alright. We could have used drink refills but nobody ever checked and the server never came back after food was served.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BadOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/13/2014I had to wait 45 minutes after the time of my reservation. It was very loud and the service was terrible.
- Disappointed!JennVIPDined on 9/12/2014My husband and I have been to this restaurant over a year ago and had a great experience. We decided to try it out with the kids for dinner. I wish I could find something positive to say, but things just didn't go well. We had a waiter who was working too many tables to actually provide decent service. We were virtually ignored after our initial round of drinks. Took forever to finally get our food. Our salads came out with our meal, so we sent them back. Four of the 5 meals were barely warm when a member of the buss staff served our food to us. Not sure if Tuscany was having an off night, but it will be a while before I try again!Special Features:
- RoadrunnerDined on 9/6/2014We had a lovely dinner on the patio and celebrated an anniversary. The food and wine were delicious....we always enjoy coming here for dinner, special occasion or not.Special Features:
- FlorinDined on 9/6/2014Very good quality food. Service was OK, too busy. Noise level was high otherwise goodSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PoorCurvyDined on 9/5/2014The waiter was okay ... Service of food we order. An appetizer calamari... Then we order our dinner wish took for ever... Three tables that came after words got there meal before us wish two of those tables wore a party of five.. The other one was of two.. And we waited... The server keep apologizing to us... Buy the time that we got the food we where no longer hungry and upset.. Never Again. I drank do much tea because I so hungry... At the and got the the food ... I was just full of water ... It was horrible.
- Food is good but service is slowchrischicagoVIPDined on 8/27/2014We really like Tuscany's food but the service seems to be consistently slow. There are times you won't see the server for quite awhile, especially at the end when you finally want the check to leave. Overall we like the restaurant and will go back.I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/16/2014Service awesome. Looking forward to visit sometime soon. Kurpad S MurthySpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Okay....LoveBirdsDined on 8/16/2014My husband and I were far from impressed with Tuscany's food, especially, for the price. We wouldn't waste our time going again.Special Features:
- BlonddinnerblonddinnerVIPDined on 8/16/2014Love the food and decor, but a little noisy. Not to the point that we couldn't hear our table mates, but we were seated next to a large group and they were having a good time, so a bit loud.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OK food, good wine,slow bar serviceGreggVIPDined on 8/6/2014Our meal was served outdoors, which may have added to the problem. Wine was half priced and as such, a good value....but the drinks, all of them from the bar, took far too long to be served. The food special was interesting but not great. I hate that an expensive meal would be just so average.Special Features:
- Wonderful Meal, AgainchrischicagoVIPDined on 8/2/2014My wife and I re-discovered Tuscany a year ago and have gone back four times. Though it's not on the menu, they have accommodated me by making a seafood risotto that is outstanding. My wife on the other hand looks forward to their fresh roasted garlic and olive oil they smash and serve with their bread. We plan on going back again later this month when some friends come to town.Special Features:
- pretty good and not too expensiveLAXpremealgonegoodDined on 8/2/2014food good, pizza ordered as appetizer came very fast. service very good/friendly with one omission, entrees pretty tasty. Only complaints were Caesar salad very sparse on dressing and nobody offered refills on ice tea ever, an odd omission.
- Tuscany for dinnerFagasDined on 7/26/2014We come here often. Great food and service with innovative dishes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food was over priced and sub parOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 7/25/2014I ordered the veal medallions but when I received my dinner I did not get medallions. I got two small strips of veal. The portion was extremely small for the price of the dish and the taste was not the greatest. I would not go back to this restaurant as there are so many other great options to eat nearby.
- Too long to eat!MInxVIPDined on 7/25/2014Food was good. We were seated promptly soon as we arrived for reservation. Unfortunately it took for ever to get our food-I waiter had several tables and every time he would come to check on us it seem like there was at least a 10 minute interval between them. It took almost an hour to get our food and we ordered nothing other than pasta. Table next of us had a party of eight and I know they were there before we arrived and literally were just getting their food when we left almost 2 hours later. I won't be coming here but perhaps the Tuscany in Chicago.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 7/19/2014A special place that consistently delivers a fine dining experience. Try the Dover Sole, not on the menu, but always available.Special Features:
- AdequateTryagainDined on 7/11/2014The valet service was great, host & seating great, atmosphere inviting, service stopped once we got our food. Had to get the hostess to check us out (btw...only 3 other tables full at the time). Food was adequate, but a bit pricey for what you received. I have had excellent service, food, etc here before, so I would definitely try again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tuscany ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 7/7/2014we have dined at Tuscany in Oak Brook several times before. our experience this time was on par with previous visits- very good in all respects.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Usually much betterMartyDined on 7/5/2014My wife loves lamb but when she asked the waiter how it was prepared, he picked up the nightly special sheet and read it out loud. Thanks for your insights...geez, doesn't the wait staff get versed in how specials are prepared and how to "sell" it? Especially when it's probably one of the most expensive entrees on the menu at $36? She went with the linguine...for $17. Too bad. Waited for drinks too....finished entree dish was walked past by half a dozen bus boys and the waiter several times as well. Not a real sharp night for the staff. Manager and asst. were great, attentive and accomodating to table request. bar tender comp'd my drink as it was my birthday.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent restaurant!WarrenDined on 6/28/2014Food was excellent, the lamb chops in particular. Service was very good as well as the wine list. The only negative was that it was quite noisy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious yet affordable ItalianBerthelotDined on 6/27/2014Great food as always, not very busy for a Friday which was nice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good foodDukeDined on 6/14/2014As always, the food was outstanding. The server was excellent and knew the menu/wine list. We arrived early to get a cocktail at the bar before dinner but checked in with the hostess to let her know. Still had to wait for a table, even though we had the reservation.Special Features:
- DeeDee55DeeDee55Dined on 6/11/2014The meal (Chilean Sea Bass and Gnocchi in Vodka Sauce) was DELICIOUS! Will definitely come back. A little noisy and very busy. But the food was worth the noise.Special Features:
- Food is Excellent!ConstantineDined on 6/6/2014Never fails! The quality of service and food has been excellent for the past 10 years that we have been going there! Good job!Special Features:
- Special OccasionBiggerDined on 6/6/2014I had a large group for dinner, The water was outstanding. Food was very good.Special Features:
- D&PDavpeg1Dined on 5/30/2014We were very happy with the service and food at Tuscany. We have dined there before. Since we live in another state we do not get to Tuscany as often as we would prefer. It is always a great experience, on our own or with family or friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great SpecialsJDlc2933Dined on 5/29/2014I always love Tuscany because they always have really great daily specials! And, they never have a problem substituting things, making things a little different than printed on menu, etc.Special Features:

- solid choicejcolDined on 5/14/2014went to meet a visitor to town. Waint staff was quite attentive but not overbearing. Food was very solid and fairly priced. My guest was delighted that gluten free pasta was available as a substitute. Pleased with the experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/14/2014We eat at Tuscany on Taylor often; 1st time at Oak Brook. I had the sausage and peppers -- fabulous as always. Tried the asparagus soup and loved it. Friend had a seasonal round ravioli and raved. She also had arugula and roasted beet salad with capers. Said it was excellent.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Busy, slow and bad decisionsPaddlingDined on 5/11/2014Our table was not ready when we arrived and we had to wait 25 minutes. We opted to sit at the bar. Bad decision. The table was the size of a plate and we had 3 people at the table. Both my wife and mine dish were very good. However, my sons salmon was overcooked and extremely dry. It should never have been served. We decided to get dessert. Another bad idea. We waited 25 minutes for a piece of cake which had a melted scoop of ice cream on it. It obviously sat in the back for a while before our waiter served it to us. Our waited compt the dessert but the damage was done. I don't mind waiting if I'm going to get a great meal, but this was not the case.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/11/2014Had Mothers Day dinner and the service was terrific! Had to move our table so they bought us desert!Special Features:
- Hair in foodTPiage22UDined on 5/11/2014We got a hair in our food. The manager did not seem that apologetic. She replaced the food for free, but charged us for the original. When restaurants have made errors in the past, they have not charged anything for the bad food or for the replacement. Also, this happened to my mother on Mother's Day. Not pleased.
- Wonderful Mother's DayOpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 5/11/2014My sister and I took my Mom for Mother's Day. We haven't been to Tuscany in years and this was a great halfway point for us. Our entire meal was excellent and the service was perfect. We all enjoyed our time at Tuscany celebrating Mother's Day.Special Features:
- SteadyBottiBudsDined on 4/24/2014I have not been to Tuscany in over 9 years. I am do glad they kept the menu pretty much the same. I guess when something works, why change it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- KikiDined on 4/17/2014I highly recommend Tuscany for dinner. The food is good, very tasty, and generous portions. From the time you walk in to the time you leave the staff is friendly and attentive. Great Hosts and the Bartenders are pleasant and they pour nice big drinks! Good music in the Lounge area, not too loud and suitable for dancing. All and all good food, atmosphere, and good fun!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always great!OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 4/11/2014The entire staff is amazing there! Food and service is always excellent!I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mis informedRockyDined on 3/29/2014I had called Tuscany to ask some questions about the band as to what kind of music as I was going to be coming the with a group of 8 for dinner. they were right on with the music but they suggested we sit in the lounge here's the problem, I decided to make reservations via open table which is great and requested the lounge which is what we got but I was never told hi top small round table were all they had in the lounge If I knew that I would have either not gone there or asked for a table close to the lounge but at a regular table because before they added more hi tops for us it would have been very hard to have meals.Special Features:
- Good Italian FoodtheatergoerDined on 3/29/2014Food was very good but not remarkable for the price. Had pasta and scallops which was nice, but sauce had a little too much hot pepper for me. Chocolate mousse cake was more like frosting than a mousse. Service was great. Waiter was very timely and staff kept our glasses full. Had a live band playing on a Saturday night. Overall, a good time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
