    We've been going to Tuscany for years - to all their locations. I've never been disappointed. We always get an order of the pear ravioli to share and it is always excellent. It's unique to this restaurant and we love it. I usually order some kind of fish and I've always liked everything I've ordered. We will continue to come to Tuscany for many more years! The service is always excellent as well!

    This is the 2nd time we have been to Tuscany in the past month and we enjoyed our visit both times. The calamari was very tender and the eggplant parm melted in your mouth; just the way I like it. The service was excellent. Beware, if you order the veal parm it's made with a veal chop and it is huge but very good.

    The food was very good. It always is. This is one of my husband's favorite places, primarily because of the veal chop (not on the menu) and the eggplant park. We continually go back because of the authentic feel of the dining experience...

    Waiter got a little short with me because I really did not like the wine I ordered and wanted to send it back. He came back and said "I tasted, it was moscato". I never send things back in restaurants, even if I don't like a meal, and he would not know that, but he made a face at me and made me feel bad about doing this. He rushed us through ordering and when bringing dinner, did not put plates on the table but handed to us. I would have thought the service might have been better given that this is a Phil Stefani restaurant.

    Maybe Halloween kept others at home but 4 of us enjoyed a terrific meal at Tuscany. The Dover sole is highly recommended if it's on the special, as was oysters Rockefeller. Drinks were strong and delist and our waiter Papa from Rome added an extra charm. Wonderful meal out.

    I have been to this restaurant before and remembered the food being good, but our experience with this restaurant on the last visit was very disturbing and my companion told me that to be sure and remind her not to come to this restaurant again. I wish that I could review the food on this visit more thoroughly (and what we did order was very good), but the waitstaff on duty that evening were hovering so completely and were providing so much uninvited service that it was very difficult to enjoy the time at the restaurant. Almost constant visits by the waiter became extremely annoying before the evening was through and I and my companion ended up ordering and eating very little as a result.

    We had 8 for dinner and all enjoyed our food. We had a variety of entrees...shrimp and linguine, salmon, veal ravioli, eggplant parm, grouper....Service was friendly. Perfect choice for the adults after homecoming pics. The antipasto platter is supposed to be for 2 but it's large enough for at least 3, if not 4. Will go back!

    Food was extremely good. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and quite the salesman. He loved to recommend items not on the menu, but which the chef would be happy to prepare. Dined on a Saturday night (not my favorite night) and the noise level was very high; had to shout to my dining companions.

    We 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.

    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 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.
