Outstanding Italian in Gaslamp
The staff was very attentive and professional. The food was outstanding. The portions were huge -- a couple could share the lasagna. We really enjoyed it.

Gas Lamp Gem!!
We were visiting San Diego with a conference and found this restaurant on Open Table with a group of 9 and went because it was close to our hotel, but what a find!! The staff was attentive, the atmosphere great and the food was simply fantastic!!

Good food, great service and
Good food, great service and fun atmosphere. This is the second time we have dined here and not been disappointed. We had the same waiter we had when we ate here last time, Dave, and he was fantastic!! Very nice and very personable. Excellent food from the pastas to the steak special-I recommend them all.

What a great experience!
So glad we chose Chianti for our special evening out with friends. What a wonderful experience all the way around. The food was outstanding (best steak we have had in a long time) and the service was fantastic. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back. :)

Gaslamp Gastronomic Treat
The food was excellent. My husband had an incredible steak. I tried Lasagan della Nonna (grandma's lasagna), our friends had two pastas and all the dishes were wonderful. The service was very fine. The only downside is the parking, which is always a challenge in the Gaslamp. There are two valet stands nearby which one can use. All in all we had a wonderful time.

Pre Marathon dining
For the running enthusiast this is an awesome location to carb load before a race. That aside this is an amazing restaurant with a huge and varied menu. My wife and family will always eat at this restaurant any time we are in San Diego.

PARKING: No valet service.
PARKING: No valet service. Parked several blocks away for $5.
ATMOSPHERE: Packed but orderly. Saw couples, families, a boys' night out group, a group of older people, all enjoying the food and atmosphere all the same.
SERVICE: The manager was very friendly as we let him know we had an 8pm reservation but had to battle for parking. The waiter was friendly and charming. Took our pictures, took a selfie with us, joked with us as we had finished every bit of delicious food and wine.
PRICE: Look to spending inclusive $75. ($20 per entree + $15 for appetizer + $10 per glass of wine.)
FOOD: Cucumber/tomato/avocado salad was mediocre. Not worth it. My boyfriend loved the LASAGNA. Extra cheesy. I adored my chicken sun-dried tomato TAGLIOLINI.

Server was awesome.
I believe our server was David and he was so friendly and hospitable. Food was delicious. I seen Chianti on resturant.com and thought it looked like a good place to try. My boyfriend who lived in Italy for a few years said it was authentic Italian food. We really enjoyed this place and will be back. Great location as well if you're also looking to go out after dinner.

Great Meal every time
Every time I have colleagues join me in San Diego, I take them to Chianti. The food never disappoints. I enjoy the chicken Marsala with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. I would have given all 5 stars but on this visit I reserved a table outside but was seated inside. We sat inside at the table immediately on the left as you enter. Condensation on the ac vent was dripping on one of the chairs.
Great choice in the gas lamp district.

I was there for a business meeting, there were 10 of us. The food was spectacular. Thomas was our server, he was very attentive and helpful. I had the crabcakes which were delicious. The sausage in the pasta was out of this world (I had a taste from a co-worker). The men in our group got a lot of the steaks and said they were great. I would definitely go back again! Oh, and the fresh hot bread was awesome!

Our hotel advised us to try this restaurant and we are so glad we did! Wonderful, authentic Italian food. Any time I am in town for business again, I will be coming back. Super!

Great dinner in the Gaslamp.
Our family of four adults had a great dinner at Chianti Restaurant. Everyone loved the calamari appetizer, and all of our main courses were excellent. Service was prompt and friendly, and the Italian wine selections were affordable.

We went to Chianti while in town for a conference. It was a great, relaxing way to end the day. The service, food and ambience were right on point. A totally enjoyable evening!

Lovely Italian experience
Food was well presented. Quantity was plentiful. Service was outstanding. One of the best Italian dining experiences outside of Italy.
Only down side was a small table for 2 which was too close to other diners. Hard to hold an intimate conversation.
However, would definitely go again.

My wife and I came to San
My wife and I came to San Diego for the Giants vs. Padres games. The concierge at the Marriott Marquis recommended Chianti, and we were very happy with her choice. Great food and ambiance. David, our server, was excellent. He sold us both on the daily specials which were delicious. He was very friendly with a great personality, and he made our dining experience memorable.

Chianti is my new Favorite!!
My wife and I recently had dinner at Chianti. The food was amazing and service was impeccable! I would have to say that my dinner at Chianti could very well have been the best dining out experience I have ever had and I dine out frequently!!!!

The food was good and the service was outstanding (Brad). The only downside was the noise level. Don't go here if you want a quiet, romantic evening or have a business deal to discuss. It's just plain LOUD.

My food was pretty good except my shrimp were over cooked but the pasta was perfect. One of our friends wasn't that impressed with his dish but loved his girl friends dish. We had dinner on the patio which was nice but keep in mind it is on the street downtown. So if you don't want to hear motorcycles, car alarms, etc. don't eat outside.

Need time to enjoy
Food was excellent but be prepared to wait for your food. Took a long time to receive after ordering even though mostly empty.

Italian style Thanksgiving
Family with teenagers in San Diego for soccer tournament & spent thanksgiving day driving to SD. Was very thankful-literally- for open table reservations and a restaurant that served traditional Thanksgiving dinner with an Italian twist. The pumpkin ravioli with Gorgonzola cream sauce was delicious as was the roasted turkey with roasted sweet potatoes & dressing which were good as well. The 3 course meal included a glass of wine & dessert-pumpkin tiramisu was a wonderful way to end the meal.
We highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. The service was very good, too. Always appreciate when the manager checks in on his/her tables.
