It happens at the end of nearly every meal served at a restaurant. Eventually your server will ask if your party has left any room for dessert.
Most of the time diners decline after filling themselves up on starters and their main course. But when it comes to lunch and dinner at Tuscany on Taylor in Street in Chicago, we highly recommend that our diners set aside some space for something sweet. We absolutely view dessert as your meal’s final essential course.
Tuscany Executive Chef Victoria Padilla has created an extensive dessert menu of Italian sweets that provide a perfect complement to any of our lunch or dinner entrees.
Tuscany on Taylor’s dessert menu includes the following amazing favorites:
Created with lady fingers, espresso, frangelico, marsala wine mascarpone cream. An Italian Classic!
Another Italian tradition, our cannoli is made with sweetened ricotta, chocolate chips, pistachio and powered sugar.
A twist on our classic cannoli made especially for chocolate lovers.
More than a generous handful of cream puffs stuffed with Chantilly cream and drizzled in chocolate. Creamy and delicious!
Our signature chocolate cake piled high with chocolate sponge cake, dark chocolate mousse and cocoa powder. Enough for even the sweetest sweet tooth.
Can’t decide between cannoli or cake. There’s no need! This dessert is made with yellow cake, sweetened ricotta, chocolate chips, whipped cream frosting, pistachio and powdered sugar.
If pie is more your thing, order a piece of this pecan crust made with white and dark chocolate, fresh berries and strawberry glaze.
Tuscany’s take on a dessert classic is made with a graham cracker crust and fresh cream cheese. Light and fluffy!
On the lighter side, a selection of fresh berries can also satisfy your craving for sweets.
All your favorite gelato flavors: pistachio, chocolate and vanilla.
Tuscany also serves a selection of Bindi Italian Sorbets in coconut, lemon or peach flavors. If an after-dinner drink is more your taste, Tuscany also offers handcrafted Cappuccino, Espresso and Grappa.
When it comes to lunch or dinner at Tuscany we always make sure to tell our guests “Why have the savory and not have the sweet.” So make sure to ask your server about our wonderful selection of desserts.
