This was such a great night out for us! We had the loveliest people serving us- Kim specifically was just fantastic! The food- omg. I had the MOST DELICIOUS sea food pasta, with mussels, burrata, and calamari! Will definitely go back, super sad to hear about their new restrictions.

Food was solid. Melon martini was overly sweet. Overall good service, on the more expensive side.

The experience at Tuscany's is always good. Waiters are always attentive to your needs. Fried Calamari (the appetizer) was the best I have had in a long time. I love my veal at Tuscany. This time there was only one dish with veal, and not what I expected. It tastes sweet. Tiramisu was the best.

Our waiter was amazing. Tuscany has a great setup for those who are afraid to dine indoors. Well distanced tables on their patio under a tent and with plenty of heating. With lots of hanging lights above, the ambience was great. I have been here several times and either go with their short rib ravioli or the pear & marscapone one with sun dried tomatoes. My friends both ordered the short rib and I the pear one. We were all in absolute bliss with the meal. We had great wine - the waiter recommended a great Siena and we polished off with creme brulee, gelato and some Port.

I'm so glad Tuscany was as well prepared as they were. It was a very cold and wet day outdoors but we didn't notice it at all. Thank you Tuscany for a wonderful meal. You still remain one of my favorite places to eat in the city!

Spent a pleasant evening on the outside deck. The food and service were both very good, but the restaurant was unfortunately nearly empty (especially inside). Hope that they can make it through the pandemic, as Tuscany has been a reliable choice for many years.

Wonderful food! Tuscany was able to use outdoor space and make everyone feel safely social distanced. Had portable heaters under a tent that kept everyone comfortable. Service was friendly and helpful.

Love this restaurant. We decided to sit outside. They have a beautiful tent that is lit with string lights and outdoor heaters. Wonderful ambiance and food is terrific.

Quite expensive for a chicken dish that was rubbery and gnocchi that tasted like it came out of the frozen section at the grocery store. The glass for the beer was so dirty that the beer wasn’t drinkable. Our server was quite attentive but the food quality was awful.

They have outdone themselves during this COVID pandemic. They extended their outside dining and also keep their windows open and space out the tables for inside dining.
The servers still keep their fun sense of humor through it all.

Amazing! Tuscany is some of the best Italian food in the city of Chicago. One of our staples and we will be back soon! The duck bread was excellent, as well as the macaroni cipirani - a MUST order.

The food and the service is always outstanding. I dined with a friend who formerly was in the restaurant business. He thanked me for introducing him to Tuscany on Taylor. You can’t get much better than that!
