Diner Reviews
  • "Outstanding food, great wine list. Would highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "The outdoor patio, carved out of the parking lot, is a wonderful addition to a favorite restaurant. Reliable food, reliable service, make this a Chicago staple."

  • "Tuscany was really wonderful for lunch. I selected a delicious cold Sicilian seafood salad with mesclun and lemon vinaigrette. The shrimp, salmon, and calamari were perfectly prepared. The salad was visually appealing as well. Along with great service, a nice space, and rich coffee, this delicious dish created a memorable lunch experience."

  • "Wonderful restaurant! Food is excellent. Took friends (who had never been there) for dinner after a matinee performance. They loved the food and everything about Tuscany's."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Tuscany is a good restaurant. The dining room is very noisy so sit outside. Food is good but the chef must have been tired because the person at the table next to me and I both sent back the same dish."

  • "This is a must go to place. Food is always good and the service is good as well."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Tuscany was a bit disappointing. The garlic is always great, the salad was good, and the entree was disappointing, as usual. We returned to Tuscany because it's were we had our first date 10 years ago, so we took a chance going back for the third time since then. Each time we've gone since our first date, we've been disappointed. The entree was salty and the service was poor. We didn't expect the server to roll out the red carpet or anything, but he didn't even say happy anniversary. He just kind of smirked and said "that's nice". We enjoyed our conversation over food, and appreciate management for printing our names on the specials menu for keepsakes. For over $100, we probably won't be returning to Tuscany again in the future."

  • "Food was great, its lite Italian with all the taste of heavier fare. The restaurant is beautiful - very comfortable and friendly staff. Weill definitely return"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Some of the best Italian food I've ever had. Our waiter was very attentive and his entrée and wine selections were terrific. We dined outside around 5p on Thursday, and it was perfect. Place was packed when we left at 6:30, but noise level on outdoor patio was pleasant. If indoor dining, I'd give another star or two to the noise level."

  • "The food is good neighborhood type Italian. Gluten free pasta is available for those who need it. Kind of noisy and service is okay, but not excellent. I remember this place as having been a bit nicer several years ago, but still good for a family kind of dinner."

    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Tuscany was recommended by a local Italian friend as the best restaurant on Taylor and he was right. The food selection was very good - I chose the veal dish and it was excellent. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. We will definitely return the next time we visit the Provision theater."

  • "We love to attend Tuscany whenever we're seeing a show at Provision Theater, just long block away. The food and atmosphere are very good, and the wait staff always makes sure we are efficiently served so we can make the curtain. Four stars!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Our server was awesome, and was not afraid to joke around with us, especially my brother who lacks manners at times. The entire experience was great, and I love the new outdoor patio."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Roasted garlic smashed in olive oil and parmasan cheese is a great way to start a meal. Ask for the hot sauce--the jalepeno oil is fabulous. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "My husband and I used to go to Tuscany on Taylor many years ago, when we were dating. It's been awhile since we have been back but returned with friends to celebrate a birthday. The food was disappointing....the Caprese salad is not at all what it used to be, not nearly as good. The wine was the best part of the dinner."

  • "We entertained our guest from out from Baltimore in for NRA. He was well please with the food and atmosphere. The crew was on point. We has a great time. Shalom "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "I have been to this restaurant numerous times, and I'm hoping it was just an off night. Two of our three dishes were burnt, and the management of tables left our poor waiter trying to balance too many people all at the same time while tables in other sections sat open. The service was slow but very friendly (as always). The menu has a nice variety from meat to seafood, and the baked garlic, Parmesan and olive oil combination to put on your bread is delicious. No dessert or coffee was ordered."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "If you are looking for a quiet place where conversation is easy, this is not a good choice. If you can manage the noise, everything else is terrific."

  • "It's been a while my husband and I went to any fine dining restaurant and this was definitely a great choice for our 2nd wedding anniversary. The ambiance was warm and serene. The bread and garlic/cheese/olive oil mix was delicious. We almost stuffed ourselves with that. My husband got the Pollo Arrosto and I got just the Pollo with mashed potatoes. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted great. I look forward to going to Tuscany again sometime soon."

  • "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."
