    We 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.

    Have 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.

    We 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.

    My 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.

    My 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.

    We 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.

    My 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.

    The 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.

    It 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.

    Our 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.

    My 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.

    Our 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.

    Our party was well received when we entered the restaurant. Sat at the bar for 40 minutes with friends just before dinner and listened to some good background music on a Sat. night. They offered a choice of tables when it was time to be seated. We had an excellent waitress even though she was still fairly new. She was so pleasant that we did not mind her having to find some answers to our questions. She always was timely and attentive. We all had excellent meals from a wide range of choices.
