- Birthday DinnerfrankVIPDined on 9/27/2014The meal was very good, the service fine and they provided two birthday deserts for the two members of the party that were celebrating birthdays. Overall, they did a very nice job.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not all locations are the samediingdanVIPDined on 9/24/2014without a doubt the worse service and food we have ever had. Waiter continued to forget items we requested, including, bread, wine and coffee. Food was not fresh. Very disappointing as we have had very good meals at the Taylor street location.
- Great evening with family!NerpachkaDined on 9/22/2014Everything was olutstanding from our server Danny to the great food and wine!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Roasted garlic bread diptjschlenDined on 9/21/2014We loved the fresh roasted garlic dip with the bread and the fried calamari melts in your mouth. The Filet mignon was also cooked perfectly! On Sundays they give you a free pasta entree with each entree ordered for you to take home - great deal! Nice bar, too.Special Features:
- Comfortable with good foodMusic2MyEarsDined on 9/19/2014Tuscany offers a vibrant but comfortable atmosphere. The food is very good and the service is great. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The live jazz on Friday nights adds a nice touch. A great choice for an enjoyable evening out.Special Features:
- great diningwayneVIPDined on 9/13/2014We have dined at Tuscany many times over the past few years and find the service excellent, the food is always very good and we like the ambiance. We highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or for date night. You will not be disappointed.Special Features:
- Not a good day for usRitaDined on 9/12/2014Have been to Tuscany on Taylor and Tuscany in Wheeling a few times. There was only one waiter on this particular Friday, and he just couldn't keep up. We had to wait for our second drink as we saw him scurrying around the room. Apparently he had too many tables. The pork chop special was ok for the price. I had salmon and it was just ok. Our friend had a great pasta dish and was pleased. She loves cheesecake everywhere she goes, but this one, was like a cheesecake from Eli's. So, all in all, not a great time.
- BobbieDined on 9/7/2014Six of us dined at Tuscany on Sunday evening. We were all delighted with our entrees, which were veal, salmon, another kind of fish and pasta. We plan on returning for another wonderful meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice time but,,OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 9/6/2014We live close and usually go several times a year. It seems the portions are smaller than they used to be. We were 2 couples and noticed it. Also the live entertainment was a guy with his own Karaoke machine. He was ok but that's about it. However the food tasted great and as usuall the best Taramisu around.Special Features:
- Nice find in the NW burbsREBGILVIPDined on 8/30/2014My wife and I had a Saturday night dinner at Tuscany. We set in the bar and had appetizer and fish dinner whiich was complimented by great Italian chianti wine. Service was disconnected between two servers working together but we did not mind as we were enjoying the scene. The food was excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DA10VIPDined on 8/30/2014My husband and I have been dining here for years and we have always loved it. However, after this experience we will not return. My wife asked for a Cabernet Sauv recommendation from the waiter- he referenced a white wine (not cab sauv). Then we proceeded with a salad to share. The waiter simply dropped off the salad and left without serving us which has always been a staple at Tuscany where the waiters serve you. We began to wait for our food. After 50 minutes, enough was enough. We talked to the manager and expressed our concern. He was not very apologetic and offered no support to us. We walked out of the restaurant before the food came. We have never done this at a restaurant but we were appalled at the extremely poor customer service.Special Features:
- social1VIPDined on 8/27/2014Food, service, parking all good. Wednesday 1/2 price is great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always AwesomeDateniteduoDined on 8/22/2014We returned to Tuscany for a night out with a group of friends and everyone was pleased. We had a vegetarian amongst us, and there was plenty on the menu to make her happy too. The burrata appetizer was to die for! We all ordered differently-pastas, meats, fish, risotto...all entrees were done perfectly. Service was spot on. Hung out at the bar after dinner and had a great time. Can't wait to go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Phil needs to pay a visit.SaraVIPDined on 8/19/2014Definitely neglected by ownership. Food was not good and over priced for what you get.
- Good Italian, butKLPDDined on 8/15/2014My concern was the consistency of service. Tea glassses were left unfilled for the first part of the meal, but picked up later. The wait staff was very limited and couldn't keep up. Ambiance was good, big the Italian competition is stronger in service and even food for price point. I felt that the value was not strong enough at the price point that night. The night bite deal look for the bar looks tempting.Special Features:
- Classy but priceytheatergoerDined on 8/15/2014We enjoyed the meal and had great service. Food was good but not great for the price.Special Features:
- Great date nightLeeloDined on 8/1/2014My husband and I chose Tuscany for our date night. We sat outside and enjoyed our appetizer dinner, dessert and a great glass of wine!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/30/2014some of food did not meet desires but manager rectified. service on slow side but friendlyI would recommend this to a friend.
- candleDined on 7/27/2014The food was good, but our service was not. Our waiter made a number of mistakes with our order. He apologized, but it meant that one dish had to be sent back while the rest of us had our food. We've been here a number of times when we've received good service. So, we'll probably give it another try.
- Birthday CelebrationDebbVIPDined on 7/26/2014We had a wonderful meal with 8 people celebrating a birthday. The live music was also a nice added touch to the night.Special Features:
- Girls holiday party in JulyGirlsVIPDined on 7/23/2014Had a wonderful experience the other night. Great friends re-uniting, very good service along with super food. We did not have ( 9 of us ) a single complaint. Food was very good , nice portions, pleasant waitress. Nothing was returned to the kitchen. Orders all came out as ordered.Special Features:
- LindaDined on 7/23/2014My friend and I shared the Papardelle with sun dried tomatoes as an appetizer. It was just OK ... very rich ... we each ate 1/2 of our half. As a special request, I had put that we were celebrating a birthday ... it was not done and I didn't want to say anything, but I should have.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- REBGILREBGILVIPDined on 7/15/2014It was a birthday dinner for my wife. She and I started with martinis served up cold. A nice touch is the 1/2 price bites where great appetizers are beautifully served. For our main course we had sea bass and roasted potatoes with a side of penna pasta with marinara sauce. A great meal in a great venue, moderately priced.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tuscany-Wheelinglovegarlicandparm04Dined on 7/12/2014The food was delicious. I especially loved the crushed garlic mixed with the olive oil served with the bread. Wonderful! Waiter was attentive. Our dinner was great! When I made the reservation, I told them it was my husband's birthday but I had to remind them of this fact.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tough nightfriendVIPDined on 7/12/2014Our waiter was slow to take our order. The order was slow to come out of the kitchen. Then 2 of the 4 orders were wrong. But the manager did offer us free desserts, which we declined, and ended up taking money off our bill. I have eaten here before and enjoyed it. I would still go back.
- Love this restaurantJulieDined on 7/12/2014Food is always superb as is the service. Our waiter suggested a different fish than I ordered, and was very happy with his recommendation.Special Features:
- Delicious and delightfulOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 7/6/2014Always happy to return to Tuscany. The food is wonderful, but the service matches it point for point. We come here for special occasions, and always go away thinking we'll be back soon. And we will.Special Features:
- SaturdayNightDinerSaturdayNightDinerDined on 6/28/2014The food was very good. Tables are crammed too close together for any ambience. Our service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointing...DinerVIPDined on 6/27/2014My friends and I scheduled dinner because the location was central and we had been there in the past with good service and food.Unfortunately, the menu is different now and totally lacks creativity, quality and value. It's hard to believe you can mess up a seafood pasta dish and have it on the "special" menu. The wine selection was disappointing too. Fortunately the atmosphere is still nice but they can do much better.
- Gr8 ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 6/26/2014Our waiter, Edwin, was outstanding. Prompt, attentive, friendly. Menu was needlessly elaborate. Food was very good but not exceptional; typical Italian fare for chain restaurant with special touches like garlic butter and assorted breads. Large portions, Good wine list. Nice place for families and groups.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- High StandardsSirDineALotVIPDined on 6/21/2014always excellent dining; server was charming and knowledgeable (being both native Italian and a seasoned server added to the experience); freshly pressed garlic cloves to go with the bread is a signature feature and always welcome; the food is uniformly and consistently excellent.Special Features:
- Great for groupsBookclub2goDined on 6/20/2014Our book club meet for lunch. We had a private room, great food, great service from the staff. The food was very flavorful with great plate presentation. The music was lovely and the room had lots of windows and natural light. Highly recommend the restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not worth the driveskinnylynVIPDined on 6/19/2014Limited menu for and Italian restaurant. Not worth the 10 mile drive from Lake Forest.
- Bone in veal parmigianaSgb1Dined on 6/17/2014It is not on the menu, but the restaurant offers a huge bone in veal parmigiana that is THE BEST. It is really to be shared by two diners, and at $38 is fairly priced.Special Features:
- Good foodGoodtimeDined on 6/14/2014Calamari was great. Pizza excellent. Eggplant parmasean was not the best.Special Features:
- NoisyNorthbrookneighborDined on 6/14/2014The noise level was extreme and made conversation very difficult, finding myself and guests from California having to almost shout in order to be heard. Both Food and Service were very good, however.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
