We enjoyed the meal and the service was excellent. Our waiters were very attentive and even helped us select a great Chardonnay by bringing different bottles to the table.

We had a last minute opportunity to meet our son and daughter-in-law for a nice evening. What a lovely time! The wait staff found the perfect blend of friendly yet not intrusive service. My salmon was prepared al dente and well seasoned. They were very accommodating with our request for gluten free pasta and the wine choices, if a bit expensive, were quite good.

The reception and service were excellent. The food excellent . The manager speaks in an obviously phony Italian accent and is a narcissist extraordinare and a phony. Otherwise, so long as you only have to deal with the manager peripherally, the experience is exceptional for the price point.

This place is a hidden gem! My sister graduated from high school and we needed somewhere delicious to have lunch. Chianti was one of the best meals that I have had since moving to Colorado. I am from the east coast and finding quality Italian food in Colorado has been a hassle. But Chianti was 100 % quality Italian. Everything was wonderful. From the bread, to the apps and to our meals, we enjoyed every last bite.
Definitely worth a try! Especially if you have been seeking authentic Italian cuisine.

Can’t wait to go back!
The food was amazing !!!!!

It’s small and tight, but adds to the ambiance and noise is level is low.

We made a reservation but it didn’t seem to make any difference as we were told they were busy and trying to get us a table
This made no sense to me , since that’s what reservations are for
Nonetheless, we waited a few minutes and were seated.
Advice is to go early , but the food is worth it!!!

I have always had a good experience at Chianti, however this time was a disappointment. The service was slow and the server was unattentive. When he was at the table, we felt rushed. Some of our pasta was overcooked and some was undercooked. We were celebrating a birthday and the server asked us if we wanted dessert. We told him we did and he dropped the dessert menus. Without asking for our dessert order, he brought out a piece of tiramisu for the birthday person. Typically, if it was the restaurant's policy of offering a complimentary dessert, they would ask what the person preferred. In this case, the person didn't care for tiramisu so he gave it away. Then the server took the rest of our dessert orders which took a very long time to be served. What put a damper on the evening was the yelling by female employees in the kitchen. This could be heard throughout the restaurant and it went on for several minutes. No one that we know of tried to curtail the yelling. No one came to our table to apologize. The table next to ours even turned around to look toward the kitchen as if trying to get someone's attention to stop the ruckus. Because of our past experiences, we will give them another try and then make our decision whether or not we will be back.

Wednesday night family dinner at Chianti felt more like a celebration. Our waiter advised of all the specials and shared a few of his favorite menu choices. We were able to go heavy on the appetizer course then share two entrees for the table. A wrap up of freshly brewed coffee tied it all together. We love this restaurant and will continue to keep it in mind (even for weekday dinner!)
