Steakhouse
Our philosophy revolves around a shared dining experience and our signature steak, the Bistecca alla Fiorentina. Before we offered the Tuscan dish on our menu, you had to travel to Florence, Italy, to get a taste of this unique, family-style-served Porterhouse. Italian dry-aged to perfection and sliced tableside, the Bistecca alla Fiorentina comes from a single breed of cattle named Chianina (pronounced Key-a-nee-na). The Bistecca all Fiorentina, a Porterhouse bone-in cut, is an ancient art featuring a New York steak and a Filet Mignon. The Porterhouse strikes a delectable balance between flavor and tenderness, but the true beauty is in its simplicity. Meant to be shared with your table, our Bistecca alla Fiorentina will reacquaint your spirit with tradition and your palate with something extraordinarily unique and wonderful.

Have wanted to try Chianina for a very long time. Went with high expectations. Service was excellent and friendly. Bar service was very good. Excellent list of spirits including whiskeys. Although our steaks were very good they were not the "wow" I had hoped for. There are other Steakhouses I continue to prefer.

We had a reservation (made by OpenTable) on Christmas Eve at 6 o'clock to celebrate our son's birthday. We got hungry an hour earlier and called to see if we can come in earlier than reservation. The host couldn't find our reservation but was still able to get us in at 5. Food was outstanding and service as well. This where we going to be coming every year from now on! Great birthday/Christmas Eve dinner! Highly recommend!

Food was even better than usual, which is amazing. Steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and cut like butter. Risotto was among the best we ever had. Shrimp cocktail appetizer had huge shrimp. Delicious.

From out of town and been waiting to go to this place for a long time because of the rare Italian Chianina beef. Was disappointed upon ordering to find out they had none until March. Big let down. Lesson learned to call ahead I suppose. Besides that great meal and service. Porterhouse was very good but a bit rawish in the center. Potato gratin was excellent as well as the starter rolls with butter and jam. Green Goddess type dressing on the wedge salad was like crack. So good.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday and enjoyed the Naples boat parade and Christmas lights in the nearby neighborhood canals afterwards. Our waiter
Kyle was super attentive and the steaks and side dishes were delicious.

Superb service in all aspects, the steaks were cooked to perfection, service was fast, very original and friendly, our waitress was helpful. This was our first time and we’ll come back soon!
Oh last but not least the bread at our table was soft, hot and freshly baked, super tasty!
I could come back solely for it, the best table dinner bread in town!

The only disappointment was that they were out of the porterhouse and there wasn’t any more lava cake!! We had an all women table and chocolate is very important to us ☺️!

The food here never disappoints and it was a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday. We always share a steak and even have left overs for our two dogs. We get appetizers, sides, a bottle of wine and I am so satisfied.

Superb meal. Had scallop appetizer followed by Caesar salad then The porter house with mushrooms, Brussels, and asparagus. Then tiramisù and panna cotta. All of this with a superb bottle of wine.

Expensive but worth it. Excellent in all respects.

I was told about Chianina through a guest I had served at my steakhouse. Both your food and your service via Matt exceeded our expectations. Everything was delicious, and we can't wait to come back.

I hosted friends for their birthdays and we had a wonderful evening. My friends loved everything - commenting specifically on the cocktails and the steak (we shared the 40oz Piedmontese Porterhouse). The side dishes were all very good; brocollini, mushrooms, roasted potatoes. The appetizers were good but it would be nice if there were a few more non-seafood appetizer choices. The desserts were all good but nothing to get too excited about. All-in-all a very nice meal and Chianina remains on my list of go-to, special-occasion restaurants.

The food was great, but basic mistakes kept this from being a higher rating. Worse, service was amateur and sloppy. Shame as I have been wanting to try.

Been to a lot of different upscale steakhouse, Chianina had the chewiest piece of mean I ever had. Very small portion for the premium price. Ambiance is nice. Crab Legs were good. Overpriced for what they delivered.

It was a very special night for my fiancé and I. We chose Chianina to celebrate our engagement and the entire staff continued to make it a very special day for us. Kyle took very good care of us and pulled out all of the stops to make our dinner experience special. The food as always is fantastic and the cuts of steak are top notch!

Do NOT miss this place! I asked OpenTable to find a steak house when in Long Beach for a conference. They were super cool about a party of six—which is great because the restaurant is not huge.

The service is impeccable. Our server made sure we knew everything we needed to and more. I felt like she helped us make good decisions without pressuring us in any direction. She was the perfect person to help us on our first visit.

The steak lived up to the hype and then some. We ordered two porterhouse and a tomahawk to share between six people. We tried medium rare and medium. They even did half medium and half medium rare for us on the tomahawk! I didn’t even know that was possible until our server recommended it.

I would not hesitate to recommend Chianina. It was definitely the best meal I ate all week.

As always, we had a spectacular dinner and the team was phenomenally attentive and made us feel like we were at home. We had a table of 8 and split two of the large bone-in steaks and a wide range of sides. No one went home hungry.

Somewhat disappointed. I have dined here in the past and attended a Grgich wine tasting some time ago and was pleased with the food and service. This past Saturday night fell short of those before. It was around 5:00 pm when I used the Open table app to book reservations for that evening and noticed that I could book anytime I wanted. Unusual for a Saturday night. We arrived early and had drinks at the bar until our table was ready. Our reservation was for

The sophisticated Chianina inhabits the location of the old Naple's staple, Kelly's. The mood lighting is beautifully understated as are the furnishings/
The bar is inviting and they even came up with their own signature FREE cocktail during the recent Naples Food event. The wine list is excellent.
Yes, it is pricey as most upscale steak restaurants tend to be. However, there are a wide assortment of menu items that can appeal to different budgets. The food is VERY good. Many items including appetizers, salads, sides and some of the steaks, encourage sharing. We don't go to Chianina often but it is always a wonderful treat when we do. We were there on Sunday for a wonderful birthday celebration and we will always come back to enjoy the food, ambience and friendly service.
