We have eaten here a few times in the last year. The food is not like what you would get at a chain restaurant, such as an Olive Garden.

I really wanted to love this place. Old time decor, old menus, feels like it's been there for 50 years. The food was typical but the taste was very average. I had much better Italian and all theirs was average. Servers were wonderful. We were there with a party on 24 on a Wedn. night. The whole time there (2... More

We walked to Tuscano's from the Loews Hotel for an evening meal. We were seated promptly and the atmosphere was pleasant. The salad was was cold and crisp and the bread was good, but my wife had spaghetti and I had lasagna and we were disappointed with both. It wasn't that they were bad, but they were very bland. We...

I was here with friends while on a business trip. I felt that the quality and variety of food was good. Appetizers while not unique were not overly seasoned and mains were very nice. service was good and great parking right on River Rd.

First time here and the food and service was awesome. I you can think of it they have it and the octopus is as good or better than I had in Greece.

At restaurant with family of 6. Busy Friday evening. Seated quickly. Service quickly. Orders taken quickly. Food, too quickly. Seems as though the establishment just wants to turn tables. Not what I like while dining out. Food average. Bar/lounge busy with live entertainment if that's what you want. Been there. Done that.

Very nice Italian restaurant near O'Hare and close to the hotels. Very generous portions with their meals and a good wine selection.

Had the Chicken Piccata which was wonderful. Attentive and friendly staff, reasonable, maybe even cheap prices for Chicago.
