I've dined at Tuscany many times over the years. On Saturday, I found the menu to be limited and overpriced ($20+ for pasta). I had the eggplant. The flavor was okay but it arrived sort of splattered on the plate. My biggest issue was with the restroom: dingy and unclean. One stall was totally clogged. Big turnoff. I won't be back.

We’ve dined here many times. The food is always very good. It’s one of our “go to” restaurants. Very traditional Italian.

The Tables were definitely tight together & the wait staff was spread a little thin. We had a good meal but the experience was too lengthy for dessert & coffee too.

I LOVE the food at Tuscany. We are regulars, so we were surprised that it was FREEZING in the restaurant. It was very warm outside and we were told the air was up to balance out the heat from the kitchen... but this was not logical and we were all uncomfortable. The food was all GREAT.

We were in Bridgeport and heading north on Sunday evening. We decided to stop by Tuscany where we had been before for some great fresh pasta. We were not disappointed at all. The gnocchi and penne pasta with eggplant were fresh, delicious and perfect for what we wanted. Can’t wait to come back for a full dinner. The staff was great. Thanks.

We were seated promptly for our reservation. Service was prompt, helpful, courteous. started with grilled octopus appetizer (really liked it) and then two nice entrees, which, as normal in a pasta establishment were more than we could finish.

Was very busy with every table full on the Sunday evening we visited

Three of us enjoyed our Easter dinner at Tuscany. We were not disappointed. The food was cooked to perfection. I had the rack of lamb, and it melted in my mouth. Herbs and spices are used well so that no additional seasoning is required. Wait staff is attentive and courteous without hovering. Tuscany is one of our favorite places to enjoy fine dining!

Our waiters service was good! The food was average - nothing out of this world delicious, but nobody's food was bad. The one thing that I am most upset about is that we were celebrating a special birthday and it was not acknowledged. When I was booking my reservation, I selected "Special Occasion" and then wrote in the comments that it was a birthday, and the birthday boy was the only one in our party wearing a white shirt ((so I didn't think I had to remind anyone at the restaurant)). During our meal the came out with a candle and sang to a girl who was celebrating a birthday on the other side of the dinning room - so clearly they do bring a candle out for birthdays. Then at the end of our meal the waiter asked if we wanted desert, and we all replied "no" because we thought that they would just bring a scoop of ice cream or something for the birthday guest. We simply received the bill, paid, and that was it! Not sure if the waiter knew and forgot, or if the 2 hostess failed on their part? Either way it was sad we were not able to sing Happy Birthday. What is the point of specifying a special occasion when creating the reservation when nothing is going to be done anyways??

I'll give it another chance because of the quality dishes we had, which were then delicious penne bolognese and the sweet but interesting roasted pear tortellini. The service, to put it in a kind way, was not stellar and so that tainted our experience, but the food was good.

Tuscany has been a tradition for almost 20 years with long time friends when attending the Housewares Show. Great food, drink, and service have kept us coming back annually. Be sure to order the off the menu chop, well worth it.

Always a great time and meal here. We love having Mario as our server but all the servers are friendly and ready to give a good recommendation from the menu. They will also go off menu if you have a special request. Great place for outdoor dining in warmer months as well. The staff will remember you when you go there the next time. They make you feel like family.
Great ambiance and wonderful eats!

This is a great place to go if you are eating before an event at United Center. The food is very good, and the portions are not insane. The service is impeccable! The tables are kind of close together and it is a little noisy, so I would not pick it for a quiet, fancy meal. But for pre-event eating, it cannot be beat!
