Do they still offer a family style menu

Yes

Is it still cash only?

Yes. Only cash.

Tufano's is a Chicago favorite and for a good reason. The food is fantastic. One question: Is Tufano's wheel chair accessible?

They do not have a ramp. However, they will go out of their way to accommodate and help anyone with a wheelchair to enter their business. Also the entrance doors are sidewalk level, there would be no issues for a wheelchair to enter.

Can I use my debit card for carryout?

No. Cash only. Venmo accepted too

Can you buy gift certificates for Tufanos

I believe you can... Good old Ca$h! Luv it!! Since day 1..!

Do you have valet parking

Yes

Can I get q $50.00 gift certificate for a relative?

Yes they have gift certificates you just have to pay cash or write a check for one.

Do they allow dogs on the patio?

Lots of restaurants allow dogs in outside eating areas.We're from out of

What type of dress is appropriate?

Casual is fine

Do you need (do they take) reservations on a Saturday night?

Maybe for a large enough group. Don't forget CASH ONLY!

Not happy at all. No good service, server with big attitude. Calamari is very oily. The sauce of the oyster is not good either. Tiramisu has liquor, it affected me and my wife. Very unhappy. The only plus is the host gave us good seats, the restaurant look good from inside and the valet is very energized and hard-working.

Very cool ambience situated in the middle of a neighborhood. Very friendly service and the owner Joey greets everyone and gets them seated. There are many repeat customers because of the great food and staff and reasonable prices. My favorite dish by far is the lemon chicken - highly recommend it.

Pretty good food but was shocked that it didn't take credit cards. What restaurant doesn't accept credit cards in this day and age? This one I guess. They should tell you when you walk in. Kind of shocking to find out after you've eaten.

Amazing restaurant, loved the food, the service, and the history! It's crazy to think about what things looked like when this first opened (as Tufano's predates UIC by quite a while).Probably the best calamari I've ever had! Everything was delicious, but that really stood out as truly exceptional!

Cash only people. If Chicago gave historic plates for restaurants Tufano’s Vernon Park Tap would qualify. tufano’s Cernon Park Tap is a long name, and it has long history in Chicago. Policy was written before credit cards so please come prepared cash only people. Can’t find a better Italian restaurant that pays attention to details. The way some dishes are prepare the the eggplant parm totally redefined the way the dish can be made. Great place to take a group and enjoy a night on the town, can’t wait to visit again!

Classic Italian like no other. Great patio, awesome food, and really unique atmosphere.My entire family has been going here for 20 years and it never disappoints. Only critique I have is that I wish they a slightly more modern beer selection. I would love a few more quality craft options as opposed to the domestic basics.

It was raining cats and dogs but we still went in. August 2nd was our 35th wedding anniversary and we were not deterred by any means. From the valet to the hostess to our waitress, all were fabulous, thank you!! We again had a absolutely wonderful meal. From the calamari to my lobster ravioli and my husbands steak italiano to the tiramisu. Everything was on point

Thisvis the place Italians go for an authentic Southern Italian dining experience. Huge portions and killer gravy as well as the best Alfredo sauce in the city. The Antipasto is huge and delicious and I highly recommend the baked clams and either the fried or grilled calamari appraiser.

I went with a group of four people and we all got different types of pasta, proteins, and sauces (Alfredo, white, and marinara) and it was all amazing. The calamari was great too! The place itself has a homey, comfortable atmosphere and feels very casual and friendly. Looking forward to coming back one day!

Excellent spot for Italian food in University Village. In the summer, eating outside is such a pleasant experience while, for instance, drinking some wine and tasting their exquisite calamari as an appetizer to prepare yourself for a great main course. This is an iconic place in the city that has been serving really tasty pasta for a long time. The chicken is also amazing and the portions are quite large. It's good for causal dinning, with reasonable prices and lots of regulars. The only problem is that it's a cash only restaurant, even though the first time we went there we couldn't see any sign indicating that.

Best Italian restaurant in Little Italy. They don't take credit cards though, so bring cash. They have a unique take on Eggplant Parnassian that I think is delcmicious; the eggplants are fried and stacked like a Lasagna, without any bed of pasta.The Lemon Chicken is also excellent and is a great meal to share amongst 2-3 people. There's a whole lot of chicken and potatoes. It's simple but I also recommend the sausage and peppers.All in all, most of the meals here are fairly simple, traditional Italian dinners but very well executed.
