I really enjoy Tuscany (but must admit I had not been for over a year).
The food was very good at a great price.
I really enjoy having live music to hear and see with dinner so that made it all the better.
The service was terrific (I wish I could remember the name of the lady who had our table but she was great).
Excellent experience and I look forward to heading back (MUCH sooner than a year that is for sure).

The server came back only once, and too late. Servers should not be noticeable to customers while they are working. Someone walked into my chair. Things were dropped loudly in the kitchen. The food is only fair. I could spend less money for a truly amazing meal somewhere else. This food made both of us feel sick. I will not bother returning to Tuscany.

Very authentic Italian food. The staff is very nice but the bussers are a little anxious to clear plates. Great restaurant if you're looking for fun energy but not a quiet romantic scene.

Ashley was wonderful to work with, she changed our table after we were seated so that we were in a quiet corner. She could not have been nicer.
And our waiter Laurlo(sp) was wonderful and did a great job. I always look forward to this restaurant.

Great evening with 6 friends. Drinks, food, wine, service – all excellent. We requested family style so we could share multiple dishes and our attentive server, Aurelio, was all over it with perfect recommendations. My fav was the octopus but everything was wonderful. So glad we rediscovered this gem of a restaurant earlier this year. Thanks Fred for a truly fantastic night!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Oakbrook area. Food is errific, well-prepared and generally all special requests are honored. Great minestrone soup and the bread at the table with roasted garlic, oil and cheese is a wonderful starter. Their Tiramisu is terrific.

Tuscany is one of our favorite spots to eat in Oakbrook, and normally it's for dinner. Surprised to see that lunch and dinner prices were the same, buy noticed that lunch portions were much smaller.

Our waitress disappeared after serving our dinner and never came back to the bar high top tables. The bus boy had to take our desert order and get our check. We left with out ever seeing our waitress again. The bus boy stepped up and took care of us. He tried to find the waitress in the main room of the restaurant but she couldn't be found.

I went to Tuscany to celebrate my daughter's arrival back in town for Christmas. We were seated promptly but did not receive a drink order for ten minutes and then another ten minutes for the drinks to arrive. The spacing between salad and entrée was another 20 minutes. Just poor service and obvious that there was not enough tome to handle our table.
I love Tuscany on Taylor and thought this would be the same bit not in the same status at all! I would not go back and really think this restaurant needs to get its service act together.

There were 4 of us, two couples. It was very noisy so that we couldn't carry on a reasonable conversation and the waitress was extremely loud when addressing us and repeatedly interrupted our conversation without excusing herself. Very rude and very annoying.

Tuscany offers a great dining atmosphere with fantastic food, service and an overall experience whether you are with family, friends or someone special. The best off the menu item is the dover sole, do yourself a favor and order that, let them debone it tableside and enjoy. Leave some room for the Lemon Ice to cleanse your pallet.

We made the mistake of having high expectations because of the name that's been around for so many years. Food quality was okay, nothing impressive. The beet root salad lacked punch and really had almost no goat cheese as was advertised on the menu. The flatbread was charred at the edges and took too long get to the table. But the most disappointing part of the evening was the waiter who seemed to paying more attention to a larger group in the restaurant. We had to flag him down to order another round of drinks. He really just had a stand-offish attitude the whole time.

We had to wait too long for our food to arrive. Our waitress kept telling us it would be “just a minute more” for about a half hour. When we first ordered our meals the restaurant was not very crowded. Maybe the kitchen staff was undermanned or just an off day.

I really wanted to like this place. The food was actually really good, but the service was absolutely terrible. We had gotten our appetizer and finished it before the waiter had taken our entree order. He never asked us if we wanted a refill. Then he gave us our desert menu and didn’t come back for 15 minutes to take the order. We were just sitting around waiting for him to show up the whole time.
