Outstanding meal! Polpi (octopus salad) was excellent. Short rib with butternut squash risotto was delicious. Attentive service. A little noisy, but other than that, perfect.

I had a dinner here starting in the evening. When the restaurant started to get busy the manager came to our table and forced us out to seat another table and flip our table. My guest and I dropped 150 dollars and only spent a hour and a half seated.

We were in a hurry because of an evening commitment. They made sure we got out in plenty of time without making us or them seem rushed. The thin-crust pizza was excellent by the way.

As always, eating dinner at Tuscany is a pleasure. The food preparation is excellent. The baked garlic with oil and cheese is delicious on bread. Salads are out of this world. Their Valet parking is cheap $6. The servers are real professionals who their stuff. Whenever, we want to impress someone from out of town we take them to Tuscany. This is an authentic Italian cuisine of Chicago.

Still outstanding menu choices and great Italian flavors. Sadly we were disturbed by LOUD group next to us. Mother's should either get a babysitter for the young ones to stay home so other patrons can enjoy their meals in peace, or AT LEAST take the time to teach them to sit nicely while dining and not allow running around.

I have been to Tuscany's numerous times before Bulls games over the years. So I'm quite familiar with your restaurant. From the food to the service, you have been very consistent over all the years and all of my guests love you as well. The servers are very respectful of getting us out on time. All of you should be proud of the work you do.

Good quality Italian food with excellent service. My only complaint is that when you charge $15 for a glass of wine (especially for a bottle that retails for $20) you might expect a decent pour. Not the case here.

Great food and excellent wait staff. It was the night of a Blackhawks game and the restaurant was completely full by the time we finished our meal. Service and food was impeccable even with so many people all arriving at once.
I love Italian food and I highly recommend Tuscany.

Tbis is not your trendy overpriced Italian restaurant. It is quality and classic which is why it has a good long standing. Great appetizers. Wonderful pasta options. The salmon was outstanding. Our waiter recommended a very good reasonably priced wine and he could not be more accommodating and pleasant.

This was our first time at this restaurant, but will definitely not be our last. Everything about our time here was outstanding. Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the staff went out of their way to make our meal extremely enjoyable. I would recommend Tuscany on Taylor to anyone looking for a real Italian atmosphere and dining experience.

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.
