Our server was very nice, and apologized profusely when he initially forgot to bring us our bottle of wine. Other than than that, the service was quick and efficient, and we enjoyed the meal. It was a good dining experience, which we would repeat.

Having booked a table we were unimpressed with the table we were given and so we asked to be moved. The service to start was really quite slow but the waiter that finally served us was attentive. Si initial impression wasn't great BUT the food was very nice indeed and so we would go back.

Service was great. Food was good. I liked that their pasta dishes also came in half portions so I was able to have a full size dessert.

Our server was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The meals were just right for our needs. The pasta special my wife had was very tasty. The sausage is spicy and the angel hair pasta has a delicious and light sauce. Great value!

Food was good for the price. Found the service was "okay". Not bad but we were the ones that asked for refills on water and pop. Food came out correct and the price was right. Was expecting a bit more attention to our table. I'd go back, in no way was it to the point of bad service. It just could have been better.

Highly disappointing evening meal. We have visited this restaurant off and on for its entire life cycle of about 35 years. This was the worst ...............

First impression was that the floor was dirty and unsweeped. Service was actually pretty good from an attentive young man. However, the meal was totally uninteresting. The calamari was nicely cooked but completely tasteless. We are unsure how you make a caesar salad totally bland. Soggy lettuce with cheese would be a kind description. My saltimbocca was again completely bland with a brown sauce of unknown origins.

We made comments to our server but no response from anyone. We will not waste our time or money again at this location.

Good was great but they were very busy for Valentine's Day and I had to flag down a server after we had not been approached in 15 minutes. Our server did a great job. Super noisy as there were so many people and some very loud ones!

I was very happy to enjoy a great Christmas Eve feast at Chiantis. It had been years since I'd been there and it still produces delicious italian food.
For the purposes of constructive criticism they do need to update the decor to match the quality of the food and service.

My wife and I brought our kids (5 & 3) to dinner on Christmas Eve. Kids menu was pretty good. Lots of options on the adult menu as well as the daily specials and chefs specials. Overall a good experience (although both my and my wife's meals was a bit "garlicy"),

It was definitely not a night to remember. The waiter, through either overwork or just not listening, managed to mess up a number of things. The appetizer was served lukewarm. The pasta was not only lukewarm, but also overcooked. I won't be rushing back.

Chianti was great! The atmosphere has totally changed, it is really nice! We ordered the house Vino which was served in a beautiful glass decanter.
Apps were fast and delicious !! The main course meals were massive... And for the price very good!
The server was very attentive and made excellent recommendations. Look forward to going back again! Thanks Chianti!!

The food is consistent. I know what to expect everything I go. Unfortunately, nowhere was it indicated online, when we made reservations, or when we were seated that they were not offering the Sunday pasta deal that day. Waiter seemed preoccupied with socializing with other staff. Did not ask us about the food. He took a long time to get food and the bill to us.

Got there at 5 for an early Valentine's supper. Seemed like staff wasn't really prepared, little things like water at the table and lighting a candle didn't occur until mid meal. Seemed like the staff wasn't really dailed in. Overall mediocre service

Very good specials and the quality is as good or better than some higher priced restaurants. My wife an I were well looked after and the owner always stops by to see how things are going. We had the place nearly to ourselves and we'd love to see others enjoying this very good establishment.

Had dinner this past Sunday with a group of 7. We all ordered pasta, but 4/7 orders had some changes to it (rose sauce instead of cream sauce, red sauce instead of curry sauce, etc...) and our waiter got all our orders correct even though he didn't write any of it down. He was polite, attentive and very efficient. I don't remember his name, but he was in his early 20's, tall and Asian. Waters were always filled and dirty plates were removed quickly.
We were all happy with our pasta dishes. We were also very surprised at the serving sizes. We have eaten at the Chianti's on 32nd and at Crowfoot and their serving sizes are probably only 2/3 of what this location served us.
Will definitely come back to this location when I'm really hungry for pasta :)

The server neglected to confirm if we we were waiting for additional guests and we waited for at least 20 minutes before being offered drinks and appetizers. The server also neglected to offer additional beverages including water after the initial serving. The server neglected to visit the table to ensure that all was satisfactory. It is very unfortunate as we used to frequently visit this location and had very fond memories of our experiences there.

Everyone was looking forward to going to Chianti's but no one thought the service was very good. We couldn't hear what the server was saying and he would just stand there staring at us. Bus staff didn't clear the dishes. We were offered bread 20 minutes after paying the bill. (Not sure what that was all about.) Bravo, Chefs! Too bad, Servers.

Attended pasta frenzy night (tuesday) and from the time we sat down to left it wasn't the most memorable time. Waited almost 10 minutes before the server came to take a drink order. Then an additional 10 minutes to take a food order. We received bread and asked for some more and he forgot. Had to track down someone else to get more after waiting 20 minutes. After 30-40 minutes the food arrived, that was the best part of the time. The manager did offer desert for the "bread" mix up.

Looking around the restaurant was packed and only 2 servers tending to tables. It appears that everyone was suffering delays in getting things. I think they were very understaffed.

The food is amazing and full of flavour. If your going to have discounted pasta nights and especially in the summer. Have more people there to serve tables
