    The service was great but the food was not. Not only was the food just ordinary.... it was over priced. Maybe if each entry / dish came with a dinner salad , that might have helped. Also , the potions were a bit on the small side. When I spend $22 for a pasta dish , I would like to bring some home for the next day.

    We 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.

    My 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!

    We 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.

    Our 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.

    My 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.

    I 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.

    Food 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.

    The 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.

    My 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.

    Our 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.
