  • "Monday night I stopped in to Tuscany because I was in the area. Had not been back in some time because it is out of the way for me normally. I had the roasted pear salad and the veal with a gorgonzola sauce. Both terrific! I highly recommend it. Waiters prompt, but not rushing you at all."

  • "The neighborhood keeps changing, but the restaurant stays on top of its game. Lunch was a seafood salad that was perfect. More seafood than I could eat, mixed with crisp greens and a subtle dressing that complimented the shrimp and calamari to a T. Friendly but unobtrusive service perfect for a business lunch. No bums rush when we were finished eating.."

  • "I took a colleauge out for lunch with 5 other guests for a special occassion. It was the 2nd visit for me and the first for the other guests. Just about everyone ordered from the lunch specials menu and commented that it was outstanding. Everyone was in agreement that the service and ombiance was very pleasant. The restauarant can get quite busy, however the guests are seated and were served in a very efficient manner. The staff are very attentive. We never felt rushed to finish our meals or to request the check. There are a lot of restaurants on Taylor Street and Tusany has a nicer "upscale" feel to it with reasonable prices. The valet parking was efficiently managed too."

  • "I've eaten at Tuscany on Taylor Street many times. I've always felt welcomed and the service is always on point. Whenever I had a reservation I've never had to wait that long to be seated, especially on a Saturday night. Would much rather go here than the madness you find down on Rush Street."

What an awesome blessing from God to have the favorite person. #lity shalom"

  • "First time at Tuscany. Very good food. Perfunctory service. I must say that our busser had much more personality that our server, even though our server did a fine job. We were celebrating a birthday, and even though I made a reservation through open table and had even mentioned/specified this when I made the reso, our server did nothing special nor did he even mention anything about it being a birthday. I am a server myself, and this, in my opinion, in a major faux pas in the restaurant industry. It is a SPECIAL OCCASION, and therefore I was disappointed in this. But the food was delicious and the person whom I took for their birthday was happy, so everything was fine. And yes, I would return."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "This may have been a gem at one time, but with the plethora of amazing Italian eateries available in Chicago, this one pales in comparison. They did a nice job with traditional Italian fare, but even that was a bit lacking in much interest. There are at least 20 Italian restaurants I would recommend ahead of Tuscany."

  • "One of my fav places in the Chicago area. I have never had poor service or a bad meal !"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "The octopus is awesome!! Every time I am inChicago I have to eat their octopus!!! Best in the world!!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "We pass on appetizers when my husband and I dine out--don't pass them at Tuscany. The calamari were the best we've had...also the octopus salad and polenta with sausage--outstanding. We were there with a party of six and everyone raved about the selection, service, and food."

  • "I was really impressed by this cozy Italian restaurant!"
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Tuscany has been great for a number of years and contines its excellent record! Both my husband and I can cook pretty great food, but they do something different and special at Tuscany with every dish! Even when you think you're getting an old standard, they put their own twist on it that makes it taste amazing. The service is out of this world -- waitstaff are warm, attentive (even to young children), respectful, and have dry senses of humor that make the entire evening memorable. There really is not a thing that needs to be tweaked or changed here. Hard to imagine a restaurant that can be both family-friendly and romantic for different tables, but Tuscany does it somehow. Fantastic place!"
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "Before a summer visit to the outdoor deck I had not eaten at Tuscany since it opened on Taylor many years ago. I was pleased to discover a casual atmosphere that accompanied good service and great food. My husband and I went for dinner on Friday evening and found the same great food...this time with Great service. I'm always looking for a dinner with recognizable food - not a dish with a dozen trendy ingredients. I can get real vegetables here! We live in Hyde Park so Taylor is a far better drive than a Northside trip through Chicago's evening rush hour traffic. Tuscany's one of our new regulars! Thanks for food that's plain good!"
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "The service was top notch! The hostess was accommodating when we called to advise we might be late. She thoughtfully reminded us what time the kitchen closed so that we would not be rushed. Our waiter was knowledgeable, charming, and accommodating as well with our order. For a starter with your bread, you are given roasted garlic that is mashed table side and mixed with olive oil and Parmesan. Delish! The beef carpaccio melts in your mouth with truffle oil and arugula. The beet salad was quite delicious. We were able to have fettuccine with prosciutto,peas,and mushrooms in light cream sauce. This is not on the menu and was absolutely divine. Two thumbs up! We will be back!"

  • "I have eaten at Tuscan'ys many times and each time its a new dining experience. Great food, good wine list and they make you feel comfortable the minute you walk in the door"

  • "A friend recommended Tuscany to us and we were not disappointed! We were very impressed with Mario, our server, who was not only very efficient and wonderful, but sooooo funny! The food was amazing and well timed. I had a steak with risotto and gnocchi and my husband had a pasta dish with a spicy red sauce, shrimp and scallops. We have been to Italy twice and the food was spot on! The mozzarella and prosciutto tasted so fresh! We would go back again in a heart-beat and I have already recommended to friends!"

  • "Love coming here for lunch. It's close to where I work. Service is always good. The food is delicious. They give you a nice selections of breads to start. The calamari is wonderful as is the Penne al Brivido pasta dish that I always seem to order. And they have outstanding coffee."
