Situated in the heart of beautiful downtown Saratoga Springs, Chianti Il Ristorante serves sophisticated, authentic Northern Italian fare in an elegant setting. Combining seasonal food, an award-winning wine selection, a welcoming and knowledgeable staff and a detailed, inviting ambiance Chianti provides every guest with a superb and unforgettable dining experience. Aesthetically inspiring, its rustic walls, hard wood floors and green onyx bar invoke the authenticity of conventional Italian architecture while remaining slightly modern. The culinary philosophy at Chianti is based on a respect for tradition. With artisan breads and pastas, housemade sausage and braised meats it is culinary craftsmanship at its best. Our guests have the chance to savor fresh food, from a selection of expertly-sliced carpaccio, to a variety of wild fish, to risotto that is made only with Vialone Nano rice grown exclusively in Italy's Venetto region. "The hottest restaurant in town." The New York Times

    A special appetizer of grilled octopus was delicious. For entrees, each of the two of us had a pasta dish. My wife’s pasta was a daily special, cacio e pepe, and we both liked it. I had penne senesi, which had a great mix of vegetables and also was delightful. With a nice bottle of wine, we once again had a wonderful meal.

    I had the Ragu Porchettato and my sister ordered the Risotto Gamberi. Both were delicious. We ordered the creme puffs to go and I was disappointed as they were dry and not filled very much. I love the open kitchen concept. The tables are just to close together. I could have reached over and helped myself to another customers dinner. 4/5 stars

    Food was inconsistent. Some dishes were great others overcooked and desert was not impressive and dry. Staff and waitress were excellent. Expensive for food quality and restaurant is crowded and very noisy. Very difficult to hold a conversation.

    This was my first time visiting and I'm already thinking of when I can go back. I tried the restaurant week menu. For an appetizer I got what was like a greens and beans on grilled bread - it was delicious. For dinner I got the pasta alla vodka. It was one of the best vodka sauces I've had. We had great service, great wine and the food was delicious. I can't wait to go back.

    Fantastic restaurant! From greeting at the door to the end was outstanding, staff are nice, they serve with a smile, coming around several times to take plates and ask if anyone needs/wants anything. Portion size was over the top for pricing- very good value. A great go to place for upscale dining in Saratoga. The manager who wears a suit goes around to each and every table to ask how everything is going. Will definitely be back!
