This place was great! We were on time and still had to wait for our table. Our server was great and we really enjoyed our meal! The ravioli and fettuccine definitely worth it. A little bit on the pricey side. The calamari was okay

Understaffed and disorganized. That's how I would describe my dinner experience on Saturday, April 3rd, 2021. Upon arrival for my 7pm reservation, I was told I could take the table right at the front entrance (with foot traffic constantly passing by) or I could take a larger table in the outdoor tent. I chose the latter. After being seated, a waiter came by and asked to take the two empty chairs from our table, already causing a disruption before anyone had come to take a food or drink order. The waiter who took our food and drink order did so in a rushed manner, interrupting our conversation both when taking the order and when delivering the food and drinks. Once the food was delivered, none of the waitstaff ever checked on us once during our meal. They were all too busy paying attention to the tables with more people. Furthermore, the noise level inside the tent was so loud that I had to yell across the table to hear my own conversation.

While some level of disorganization and confusion might be acceptable several months prior, when restaurants were just beginning to reopen after covid, Chanti has been reopened long enough to work out the bugs and figure out how to provide proper service to their customers. The goal of reopening is not to see how many tables you can possibly fill in order to make up for months of lost revenue, but to take care of the customers who are the reason for your ability to reopen.

This was totally unnecessary on the part of Chianti. Two weeks prior, I dined at their sister restaurant, Venice, and had an excellent experience there. But Chianti needs to take a hard look at their seating and staffing model, and focus on service and not volume of customers, if they want people to keep coming back.

I have never had a bad meal or bad experience at Chianti. The staff is friendly and attentive, without being annoying. The food is excellent. If you're looking for heavy NY-style Italian, this is not the place to go--it's definitely more authentic-Italy Italian food. Their pasta is absolutely wonderful--you can tell it's handmade.

We were quickly sat at a two top shortly after arrival. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable and conversational. The server recommended a nice bottle of wine. We couldn’t decide on small plates so had a sampler that was excellent. The sea bass piccata and scallopini marsala was fantastic. Desert was a bit of limoncello. An excellent meal!

Have been coming here for years and all the food has been excellent. This time all was good but salad. Veal was excellent. Chianti salad missing any notable red onion and bacon.
They have a new lasagna recipe, not as much meat or noodles, mostly cheese. Its different. Can you also keep the old recipe as an option also as the old lasagna recipe was excellent.

All employees were following Covid guidelines and the spacing in the restaurant was excellent which actually kept the noise level down at a restaurant that is typically very noisy. Food was excellent.
