The food was amazing, can't wait to go back to Halifax so we can return to Chianti and try different menu items. The lamb stuffed raviolis were delicious and so was the veal! Definitely must try's!

The decor and menu selection could be classified as outdated by the pessimistic but I prefer to view it as classic and familiar. I feel the restaurant is "owning" the sort of stereotypical Italian restaurant image and doing a darn good job of it, too.

Our waiter was perfect, attentive without being overbearing at all. We were invited to ask any questions we may have had. He was also very gracious about us using a groupon for a discount.

The only flaw was we both felt parts of our meals were slightly overdone - my spaghetti and his risotto were both a bit past al dente but not soft enough to ruin the dish. Everything was very well seasoned and cooked to perfection otherwise. The lemon cheesecake was especially delightful.

Very good food as usual. Had the seafood linguine which is the best. Had purchased a groupon for a meal for two which includes appetizer, main, and desert. It’s important to note that for those you have to pay tax on the full amount of the meals, not the groupon itself so it ends up not being as good a deal as you think. Prices at Chianti are on the high end and food quality is at par with that.
