Taylor Street in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, adjacent to the University of Illinois-Chicago campus, is known for its outstanding Italian restaurants. One of the best is Phil Stafani's Tuscany, located at 1014 West Taylor Street in the heart of Little Italy. It features inspired seafood, pasta and wood-fired pizza.

I haven't been to Tuscany since retiring but it seems not to have changed. The food is excellent, the noise level is High, the room is crowded, and the prices are HIGH! We had wine, and basic dinners, and the bill was over $200 for 4 adults. The noise and prices are why we didn't come here while I was... More

We return to the place that is like our table at home. The warm hand shakes and fond greetings of Happy New Year and belated Merry Christmas abounded. The octopus salad was on point, and very tasty...... The duck breast was prepared very well. The tenderness was nearly like butter. The sauce was uhhhhhh! The desserts were good and they... More

Friendly service, efficient waiters, comfortable neighborhood "joint"...food is always reliable and often outstanding. Staff is always willing to customize requests. Can't beat it for value and I always treat it as one of my "go to" places as I know it will deliver.

I really can't find a bad thing to say about this place. You can start with a cocktail at the bar, The service is outstanding. I have eaten here now 5 or 6 times and everything I have tried has been the best.

Chicago visitors note! Here's a place we locals love. Looking across the filled-to-the-brim dining room, it is easy to tell that most everyone has been here before. And we come back because the food is great and service makes us feel welcome. The old Italian neighborhood along Taylor Street looks spiffier than ever. And, what's that? A Thai restaurant? On...

The atmosphere is very nice. Make us feel like going to have dinner with friends in Italy. The waiter gave us good advice to choose the food in the menu. My personal favorite is pasta. Very tasty😊

Booked a reservation @ the last moment after visting Navy Pier & we're sure glad we did. Parking was paid valet. Got seat fairly quick since we still early @ 5:45. For apps we got grilled calamari & cozze guazetto, and both were superb. Entrees ordered were linguine w/claim, chicken estiva, seafood linguine, all superb. For dessert we ordered cheesecake...
