For Northern Italian cuisine, Tuscany is a fine choice in Little Italy that's as popular with Millennials as it is with business folks and families with grannies and kids. The Phil Stefani classic has delivered rich Tuscan flavor and juicy Italian wines to Chicago for over a quarter century. During brisk Chicago winters, the scent of wood-fired gourmet pizzas is positively heavenly. Enjoy a menu curated by Executive Chef Victorio Padilla: one-of-a-kind pasta dishes like the popular Ravioli Pera (roasted pear, Parmigiano, toasted nuts, sun-dried tomatoes, mascarpone cream); perfectly prepared steak, veal and chicken dishes; as well as fresh seafood. In the summer, get a seat on the elevated patio offering the sights of Little Italy. Consider ordering a glass from Phil's favorite hometown vineyard - Fattoria di Montechiari. The restaurant also has two suburban locations, in Oak Brook and Wheeling.
- Italian: "Tuscany is open for lunch on weekdays only. Consider drink and appetizer specials in the bar from 4 – 7 pm Sunday – Thursday."
- Best for Italian Because: Not just for locals, Tuscany has wowed out-of-towners such as former President Clinton and former Vice President Al Gore.
