Tuscany is one of my top choices for Italian food in Chicago! We ordered the Veal Piccata, Ravioli Toscani and my favorite, Macaroni Cipriani. Each dish was delicious and had a unique flavor. The food was truly amazing! The service was very good! The restaurant has a nice ambiance and I will definitely recommend it to my friends.

The food was amazing and was a great choice for great Italian food while in the city. I will now visit Tuscany in Oak Brook as well which is closer to home. The Italian restaurants in the Oak Brook area do not compare to Tuscany on Taylor or my favorite Italian restaurant - Brunetti's which is now closed. I will definitely return to this restaurant.

We ate here after checking out Pilsen’s second Friday art galleries. Everything about our experience was great. We had the eggplant parm and a stuffed ravioli. The best part however was the bread and Parmesan garlic they served before the meal. Loved it all!

No place like this....
No on the menu ... just know your ingredients and talk with the waiter and you will be very happy with your meal.

Roc has calamari with linguini red sauce and was not on the menu....

Leonard had Barbarossa salad ....
The bread with roasted garlic, parmesan, olive oil and hot peppers to create the spread for to much great bread.

Ken is our normal waiter, and he make our dining very easy.
Marybeth was closing the night were showup ...

I have never had a bad meal or anything but excellent service at Tuscany. It is one of those Chicago restaurants that is reliable and consistently provides excellent food. The gnocchi was perfect and the sea bass was well-seasoned, fresh and delicious.

Believe it or not this was my first time at Tuscany. I've passed it many times on the way to the U.C. Our waiter was Mario! He was very attentive and funny. And our water glasses were always filled within seconds of drinking some! Great time and hearing all the conversations reminded me of my Italian family on Sunday's.

My wife and I came here for my birthday dinner prior to a concert at the United Center. We had the best waiter named Jesus. He was very knowledgeable about the food and provided excellent recommendations. The food was superb and the atmosphere was great. The staff all helped each other and were very friendly, even the valet parking attendants were a class act. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.

We enjoyed the casual, busy atmosphere for dinner with our son and his girl friend. The wide range of Italian choices fit all taste preferences and dietary restrictions. The wine list was well stocked with affordable Italian selections. We enjoyed the burrata appetizer and various past dishes. The duck special with risotto was excellent. I would return for than alone.

I was very impressed. We had a party of 14 on the eve of the Marathon and I had to book two separate reservations online 30 minutes apart. I'm embarrassed as I forget her name, but the woman who greeted us in the front (Dark hair, very professional and accommodating) really took care of us. she was able to sit us all down at one table. The staff and servers really handled our party 14 (with 7 kids) professionally and respectfully. Service was great, food was outstanding. We had several friends from out of town (NYC) that truly enjoy Italian food and they all agreed it was a great meal! They all even commented today that dinner was great. Thank you!
