Chianti’s is always nice. However, the food didn’t taste as fresh as it has in the past.
The salad was great! The Chicken Cacciatore was awesome. The Shrimp Scampi had too much lemon and the shrimp had an off taste.
Food was delicious. Service was as friendly and attentive. The space is small so you feel rather cramped and when full on Friday night is a little noisy.
The food did not have much flavor. We have been there several times and we all commented on the change in quality. I won’t recommend it with flying colors as I have in the past, I’ll let others decide for themselves.
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!!!
A great Italian place for a great meal. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve had. The wait staff are very attentive and the small dining space is cozy but not too crowded or close to other tables. I had the potato soup this visit and it was phenomenal!
Very busy. Tables are tight , but even with waiters being extremely busy they were attentive and salads and chicken entrees were delicious
Delicious meal with excellent service.
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.
We go every year and Chianti is one of our favorite restaurants. It’s always delivers good food, decent wine list at a solid value.
Really good Italian food! It is small, so be sure to have a reservation. That's the only downside is the size of the restaurant, it gets a little cramped in there, but everything else is wonderful
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!)
This has been our favorite place for many many years and we love going for special occasions it was our anniversary.
Fabulous food and excellent staff. A very friendly serving team along with delicious food makes this a must. Not exactly a place you would stumble on, it is full of locals and regulars. Have only been twice and both times everyone in our party had a wonderful meal. It does get very busy so make a reservation.
Yes it really that good! We were welcomed right away, table ready, excellent first rate service. Apps were recommended and so good. Bread was brought. Excellent menu selections and veal was the best ever! Desserts so darn good.
I invited local friends to meet there while I was in town. None had been and we all were super impressed. Yes! It was that good
When asked our waiter if there are lunch specials for the day, the answer was no. However, different waiter at next table gave customers lunch specials.
Always good food. service is good, not great.. waiter needed to be reminded on several requests.
We've been here several times after being referred by my doctor. We always enjoy the friendly staff and the wonderful food. It's perfect for a little something special. They have a great wine list too.
Lovely place tucked into a strip mall. It’s been there for 17 years, and no wonder! Delicious Italian food and wine.
My friend and I have same birthday so we celebrated here- first time in long time I’ve had lunch here and it was EXCELLENT!
It's a great neighborhood italian restaurant, enjoy every time, thank you.
Over priced wine. My bolognese sauce was like dried up jimmy dean sausage thrown on top of pasta
Great find, will definitely return. Food was very yummy, portions ample, and service attentive.
Excellent food and an excellent server. Small crowded place but it did not get too loud. Wine was a little pricey but that is our only complaint. Great spot for date night.
Excellent, as always. We took out of town guests and they loved it too.
We really enjoy Chianti. Very consistent and delicious!
We were celebrating a birthday but there was no acknowledgement what so ever until we sang happy birthday. Quite disappointing that a fine dining place wouldn't do a free dessert or put a candle on the dessert or something. Many places covet special occasion celebrations
We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation
I was standing at the hostess stand waiting to be sat when a couple walked in, she announced they were here for their reservation, saw the host with the menu, and walked right behind him and took our table!
The host was oblivious to whom he was seating. Then he turned around and said, “They took your table”!
The place was busy as it was 6:30, so he told us to sit “anywhere”. ANYWHERE?
Our first time here so not familiar with the layout.
What I did observe was overcrowded tables, practically on top of each other.
Sadly, we left.
The noise was unbearable.
Why do restaurants crowd tables so close together?
Might as well have a community table.
I doubt we will return
Chianti never disappoints- ladies luncheon special occasion, or spouse dinner special occasion!
I dined at Chianti Ristorante yesterday for a business lunch. As always, the food was delicious and the staff was wonderful. I love this restaurant. I highly recommend it for authentic Italian cuisine. Bon appetito.
I'm so glad we tried Chianti Ristorante for 5280 restaurant week. I was blown away at the phenomenal $25 menu and service. We decided to tip based on what we thought we should have paid for such a great meal. We enjoyed ourselves very much and will he returning soon.
This was my 3rd visit. 1st and 2nd visits were good experiences with very good quality of food and service. 3rd time the food was still delicious, but the service was poor. Even though the restaurant was starting to empty for the evening, we had to ask for our dessert and for more water. We were pretty much ignored by our waiter, unlike the other tables with a different waiter. We are hoping this is a fluke since we have been telling all of our friends about our "new gem" of a restaurant. I tried to take a feiend to have lunch last week. It was 1:35 and she was turned away at the door because the restaurant was closing at 2pm! When I mentioned this over the phone, when I called for dinner reservations, I was assured that it is not their policy to turn away customers before 2pm. If anything else negative happens, I will not continue raving about the restaurant abd will find another "gem" to patronize.
We went there last Saturday evening and partook in the restaurant week menu. The food was excellent and the service was generally adequate considering how full it was. However, the entire evening was spoiled because my entree was so small. Really small. A small handful of pasta tossed in a meat sauce. On a huge plate that just looked ridiculous. The waiter thought this was funny when I complained but later stated that it was deliberately smaller as it was the restaurant week menu. So, I ask why do they bother with restaurant week at all if they cannot be bothered to make it a satisfying experience and are not concerned about their customers leaving hungry? They certainly did not show case their dining experience to me in a way that makes me want to go back.
Changes in the past few months. i ordered a la carte during restaurant week and received a decidedly smaller portion of calamari than in the past....small enough to NOT want to order in the future. quality also a bit reduced. dont know if this is restaurant week related but disappointed. Veal, their signature, also a bit off.
It was good restaurant with atmosphere in a small place. White table clothes and attentive wait staff. The food was very good. It was slightly pricey, however I think it match the atmosphere they are tying to create.
Awful! Didn't even stay for dinner, we were clearly not welcome with a baby since when we walked in and asked for a high chair, the Italian man at the front rudely told us we should have made a reservation for 3 since a high chair takes up space.
We were looking forward to a fun dinner with our well behaved child but went to illegal petes instead. Super disappointed, have never been scowled at like that before with children.
The food was delicious! The servers were really on the ball, and the experience was great.
Had to remind waiter 3 times that it was my husband 's birthday which I indicated on the reservation. We were brought our dessert before our entrée
My wife and I celebrated a belated Valentine's Day dinner at Chianti on Saturday night. It was the first weekend of Restaurant Week and thus it was crowded. That didn't detract at all from our most enjoyable meal. Edgar took great care of us and the food was fantastic. And quite a bargain since we ordered off of the Restaurant Week menu. Chianti is one of our favorite spots for a romantic dinner. We highly recommend it.
Our waiter Edgar was excellent, very friendly and attentive. The space is small, but Edgar explained it was owners first location and his mother had worked on the murals, so didn't want to change. Noise level was reasonable for a full restaurant. Food was fantastic! Had the rigatoni and 2 different raviolis at our table. Nutella cheesecake was splendid. Portion size was good, would recommend use of smaller China given small table size.
