I took my girlfriend out on a dinner date to Tuscany on Taylor and we both loved it. The food was fantastic and the service was superb. We were seated as soon aswe walked into the doors. The waiters constantly made sure our glasses were full and that our food came out hot and on time. We felt very welcome and my girlfriend really enjoyed herself. We will definitely be returning for dinner again very soon.

This is another recurring 3 monthly visit, as expected and always found the staff is always pleasant, respectful and most courteous. All of the staff from the parking service to hostess to each of the dining room workers and to the kitchen staff are courteous and clearly working hard to deliver the excellent dining experience. The food is prepared and delivered to a high standard. Dishes that by name might often be common are notches above. The tiramisu is an example, light and heavenly, not overly sweet.

I brought two friends who also were very pleased with the service, the food and the atmosphere. A very good beginning to a delightful experience in my old home city and a pride to share with friends. Thank you.

This is still my favorite restaurant in Chicago. My wife loved her Chicken Vesuvio dish and I thoroughly enjoyed my Sausage, Peppers and Onions entrée. Our two guests from Michigan were also very pleased with their meals. great wine choice by our server, Jesus.

What an awesome dining experience after watching the Blackhawks beat the Red Wings. And our waiter was from Detroit, no less. He had an awesome attitude, and provided excellent service. #MotownMuscle #DetroitDiesel

Another amazing meal at Tuscany with my wife. Manuel was our waiter again. We seem to always have him and are so thankful. He is always so gracious and helpful. The atmosphere was perfect for an early Valentines dinner. We of course will be back and highly recommend anyone looking for that hidden gem in Chicago to visit Tuscany on Taylor.

Definitely gave a classic Old School Italian vibe. The food was fresh and flavorful with good portions; not overwhelming. The wine special for the evening was superb. I love that they have valet parking since the parking is bad, as well as the weather.

I have been to Tuscany on Taylor many times and this was definitely the most enjoyable lunch I have had there. I was with someone who was vegetarian and we shared the Tuscany salad (excellent!) and the special pasta which was stuffed half moon ravioli. All great and a great bread basket also - even though I really didn't need that. We were there early so it was much quieter than usual - worked out great for a lunch meeting.

Always outstanding. Whether for a busines/personal lunch or dinner a great place to go. The Itallian food is of the highest caliber and the menu has something for everybody.
The wait staff is efficient and friendly. If you have to make a game or a show the waiters will speed things up for you to make it out in time.
My favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago! Highly recommended.

Do your drinking at home. Although the cocktails are generous, they are pricey. I took my brood of 7 there, in the hope that I would get away with a reasonable bill; I'm sure you can imagine the rest. The service was above par, food always excellent and they never rush you. We love going in summer, when we can eat outside!

Our waiter was really funny. He brought roasted garlic cloves to the table and added parm and olive oil which was so amazing. Called it Italian peanut butter. Our food was delicious- I had shrimp and linguini- my husband had sword fish- my daughter had lobster ravioli- and my son had short rib ravioli. All were delicious!
