Chianti Il Ristorante
Dining GemVery nice atmosphere and great food. Early dining complete dinners for $19 are a great deal. Excellent, attentive waitstaff. Always a fine place for dinner.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at ChiantiMy father has spoken of this restaurant many times and I finally had the opportunity to go with my best friend for my 30th birthday. We enjoyed a beer at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartender was friendly and discussed beer with us. My friend and I opted to split every plate so we can take advantage of trying as much as we could. We ordered Coccio (calamari), then the Del Chianti (thinly sliced filet with gorganzola fondue, then the risotto carciofi e gorganzola and salmon special. While the calamari was nothing to brag about, we tore into the hot (yes it was steaming) bread and dipped it into every sauce that was left over. The filet was AMAZING as was the risotto and salmon. And our server was so attentive.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great service.Great food and great service.

Best happy hour 7 days a week in Saratoga.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceMy husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at Chianti II. The owner came to our table to greet us while we were having our before dinner drink, our wait staff was excellent and the food remarkable. Best of all the prices on the menu were a pleasant surprise. The next time we are in Saratoga Springs we will most certainly return for another dining experience. Whatever you do be sure and have a cup of coffee after your meal, even the decaf. It is delicious!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMJamie is the absolute BESTJamie is the absolute BEST server I have ever encountered. Her attitude and love for the restaurant BEAMS from that girl! She is a keeper.
I bring clients there numerous times a year and they are always very impressed with everything!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect EveningThis was our first visit to Chianti for dinner, having previously been there twice for enjoyable Happy Hour experiences. We chose to dine outdoors on this occasion and were seated in their canvas enclosed area which housed a number of tables. It was a very comfortable setting, and we felt well taken care of by our servers. We opted for Chianti's Sunday A Cena Per Primi, which offers a selection of 3 course dinners before 5:30 PM for only $19. My wife chose grilled asparagus with prociutto and egg for her antipasti, while I selected calamari in spiced tomato broth. For our main courses, we both chose Penne Alla Norma. Everything was delicious. For dessert, we both chose excellent Tiramisu. Service was efficient, yet friendly. We'll return.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always...we love Chianti!Kim is a terrific server!

Service is friendly and professional from the moment one walks in. On this particular night, I was bringing a friend, to whom I had given very high expectations of this restaurant. Not only did the food and service live up to expectations, it far exceeded it! The timing of the courses were perfection. One never waited for, or wondered when the next course was arriving. The waitress was very attentive and answered any questions thoroughly regarding wine or menu choices. Chianti is always the perfect choice for outstanding food and service!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMdiverse menu great service nodiverse menu
