OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)

The evening that we went the restaurant was super busy. We had booked a table but still had to wait 30 minutes after we arrived. That was the only frustration. Other than that, everything was super. Excellent food and very pleasant staff.

Bad all the way around...from the moment we showed up with reservations, only to be seated at the worse table in the place to "soggy" undercooked entrees...all that at outrageous prices...we tried this place after a 3 year hiatus and am never returning

One of my favorite restaurants. The food is great, and the ambiance. Very comfortable

Great local place for a good meal. Small dining area and tables are close so hard to hear if restaurant is full. Service ok but noticed mostly new staff so maybe why service was not as high as usual. Cioppino is one of our favorites along with the seafood pasta. Wish they would bring back the olive tapenade they used to serve with their bread

The entrance area is very small. You end up waiting in the doorway or outside. It would be nice if there were some benches to sit on inside. The wait was reasonable 10 mins. The table was very nice by the fireplace. Food was delicious with large portions. Party of four had gnocchi, abalone steak, Pork chop and pasta with seafood. Split a Caesar salad and a greens salad. Add a nice bottle of red and dinner was served. Desserts were great too! Bread pudding, tiramisu and profiteroles with coffee and a mocha. Absolutely delicious 😋 although it was very hard to hear conversation it added to the electric vibe of the place. Definitely will go back.

Excellent food, large portions, and most importantly, outstanding service by Katherine and the rest of the professional staff. Katherine even ran out to the parking lot to hand me my credit card that I had inadvertently left with the merchant receipt. Talking about exceptional service! We will certainly be returning to Chianti Cucina and encourage others to patronize this restaurant.

The fresh fish is delicious. Can't go wrong there. The food is consistently good.

Food is always very delicious and service is wonderful! The loud atmosphere makes it difficult to have a conversation, though.

A great time was had by all. We frequent this local gem and always have a great meal.
We always recommend this spot to friends and renters. You will like it but make sure you make a reservation.

We having been dining there for many months on a weekly basis. Our waitress Carina is always polite, efficient, happy and has a smile on her face. She remembers what we like to drink and eat and how we like our food prepared. I find that the food and service is consistently the best. It makes my night out very enjoyable.
