As usual, we had a wonderful experience at Tuscany. The food was excellent and the staff allowed us to dine at a comfortable pace. Noise was not a problem and 3 people in our group who had not dined there before were very impressed. All are 'foodies' and they all agreed, it was a wonderful event for all!

Tuscany is one of my favorite restaurants to go to in the winter - it just has a romantic, cozy ambiance. I love the staff, and the food is so delicious. True authentic Italian cuisine. I recommend Tuscany to anyone, especially someone looking for a date restaurant!

Came here the 2nd year in a row for Chicago Restaurant Week. Other suburban restaurants participate in this event. Please consider having Tuscany in Wheeling participate next year.

Wonderful food, great service; love their restaurant week menu for us seafood lovers.

Our birthday dinner was wonderful! We visited Tuscany (Italy) last fall and was thrilled to find a restaurant in Chicago that reminded us so much of our time there. The food and wine were outstanding, and Mario, our server, was delightful! We'll definitely be coming back!

Four friends dined together and everyone agreed that their meal was very good. We had mahi-mahi, seafood ciopino, beef and ravioli so a good variety. Service was excellent and the room seemed quieter than in the past so easy to talk. Great experience.

This place continue to provide great service and wonderful tasting food.

We dined on calamari fried and a new appetizer that was calamari with peppers and some other good ingredients.

The main dish was the duck breast medium rare and penne pasta with scallops. Both dishes were for king and queen .

TThe service from Alex and Kenny continue to provide over the top service .
This dinner was for more than 2 hours......
Nothing like a restuarant like home.
