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.

A bit overrated. Food was ok but not great. A disconnect from other reviews. Having lived for a bit in Chianti this certainly was not anywhere as good. Staff were good. Very friendly.

Whether it's classic Italian or a juicy steak Chianti never ever disappoints. My family and I have gone there and gotten catering there for years and it's always excellent. Chianti is the best restaurant is Saratoga!

My husband selected this restaurant for our date night. Reservations are your best bet to get a table. The food was prepared sumptuously perfectly executed Scottish Salmon with pistachio creamy topping in the side- which just added to the richness of the salmon! Amazing! The service was perfect! Not intrusive but nearby and ready. It was a bit noisy but worth it given the food. We r planning to go again!

Everything was wonderful. The only comment I would have is that the noise level is pretty high.

Excellent happy hour offerings and delicious entree selections. Be sure you have the profiteroles on the dessert menu. Very attentive service whether at bar or at a table.

Our order was not correct but the waiter accepted responsibility ,apologized and offered a complimentary drink or dessert which was the perfect way to handle .

The food and service are very good, but the main dining area is like a cafeteria... Tables are stacked on top of each other with little ambiance. This generates allot of amplified noise, making conversation difficult. Detracts significantly from the dining experience. It's never good when patrons talk more about the noise than the food. They need less tables, and more nice noise absorbing objects ...noise absorbing ceiling and wall tiles would help. I don't go there in the summer... It's far worse when the place is packed.
