Taste of Chicago, the legendary food festival, kicks off this Friday, June 25th. Now in its 30th year, the festival will feature more than 50 restaurants, including our very own, Tuscany (booth #26).
Tuscany will be serving up all of your Italian favorites; Italian Beef, Italian Sausage and Turkey Meatball sandwiches, our famous Toasted Ravioli, and new this year… a Chicken Parmigiana sandwich!
Grant Park — north/south between Monroe Avenue and Balbo Drive, east/west between Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive.

11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. (the festival closes at 6:00 p.m. on July 3 and July 4)
