The tradition of Tuscany lives on with the comfortable trattoria featuring mouth-watering Northern Italian specialties. The beauty of the restaurant is the perfect compliment to the enticing cuisine. Homemade pastas, gourmet pizzas baked in a wood-burning oven & tender veal grilled to perfection are just a few of the Tuscan favorites awaiting you. An incredible wine selection complimented by exceptional service creates the ultimate dining experience. Tuscany truly captures the warmth of North Shore dining.

This restaurant has consistently good food and service. From salad to dessert, the food was great. The restaurant also has excellent service, and based on those two very important considerations, I believe this is the best Italian restaurant in the Chicagoland area.

We have not been to Tuscany for years. I regret this is so. Our dinner experience was wonderful. COVID protocol was in place and provided safety and comfort. Our server Joshua was
terrific in every way. The menu and wine list were as extensive as ever, and prices were moderately expensive with some wine bargains available. To start, my wife had Caesar salad (classic, perfect prep) and I had minestrone soup (chock full of fresh veggies and delicious.) We each had one of the several specials: my wife had a great shrimp and scallop Scampi, with light garlic and roasted: fantastic. But the highlight was my tableside dissected Dover sole almondine: truly heavenly, with fresh taste and consistency, and a wonderful sauce. Lastly our hostess came to our table to hear our praise, and we had an engaging discussion of the restaurant industry as well as politics. We won’t wait long to come back!

We have dined at Tuscany many times and have enjoyed it. This time was an exception. We had a reservation for the outdoor patio and were promptly seated. The bus staff were very attentive and brought us water, bread and garlic right away. It all went downhill from there. We sat for over 25 minutes without a server coming to our table, no specials presented or drink order taken. My husband had to go in to the host stand to let them know. The host did come out to give us the specials menu and apologized and said a server would be right over. About 5 minutes later our server did appear and took our beverage order. He came back a few minutes later and dropped off the bottle of wine and said he’d be right back to open it. It was a screw top so we opened it ourselves. He said he’d be right back with a wine chiller- that was also delayed. We placed our appetizer order, calamari, that was delivered quickly and was good. We put in our entree order and again waited quite awhile. While we were still waiting, our server ran by and asked us how we were enjoying everything- he barely noticed we didn’t have our food yet. Then he said our food would be right out, it was at least another 10-15 minutes before our food came out. My linguini with shrimp was hot and tasty, my husband’s scallops, shrimp & spinach was at about room temp at best. In all, we were there for 2 hours for a meal that should have lasted only an hour. I’m sure we will return to give them another chance but it won’t be soon.

This was my first dining out experience during COVID and it couldn't have been more perfect. Our outdoor spot was far enough away for me to feel safe removing my mask during the evening. The food was wonderful, as always, but maybe it tasted even better to me since it was my first "dining out". Thank you Tuscany for breaking the ice for me. I will be back!

Reserved an outdoor patio table. We had no wait. All personnel that we encountered during our evening were courteous and helpful. Our meals were exceptional as to presentation, temperature and taste. We certainly will return. Highly recommended.

It was great as usual. Good food, nice friendly service and a sense of caring about precautions given the pandemic.
The outdoor patio on the side is a fun place to experience the good food.

Since we are more likely to eat out in the open air...I prefer a nice patio to those tents in the parking lot or next to the street...this place has both ..but I much prefer the beautiful garden setting they have had for years. The braised beef ravioli and the tuna appetizer were both exceptional! PLUS...they give you a roasted garlic spread with your bread when you are seated...I love that!!!

Fried calamari were good but the portion has really shrunk. The chilean sea bass was nowhere near as good as in the past, slightly overcooked and a tad fishy tasting.
Service was very good and the southern patio us the place to be seated.

The service was well below average. No one refilled our water glasses, our entrees were delivered while we were still enjoying our appetizer and the empty antipasto platter remained on our table through our dinner.

Both our entrees were off their specials menu. My wife ordered the eggplant. The noodles were properly cooked but the eggplant could have been frozen and microwaved. No garnish, just a glob of cheese. I had the linguini with scallops and shrimp. The pasta was fine but it all sat in a watery, bland puddle of diluted olive oil. Unseasoned and flavorless.

We will not be back. It’s too bad. Lovely courtyard space should be celebrated with enthusiastic Tuscan food, not production Italian we could find anywhere.

Everything was going fairly well, not the best meal we've eaten, but decent. What ruined it was we were sat outside under grapevines and weren't aware of the grapevines. When my wife got up, the entire back of her pants was stained with red grapes. No one had cleaned off her chair! The staff was very apologetic and said the manager would phone her. It has been two days and no one called. We will not be going back to this restaurant.
