Great food and service
Due to a private party in one half of the restaurant, it was nosier than usual. The restaurant was full and the service was great even though the restaurant was full.
Great food and excellent service. I love the blackberry salmon. Cooked just right with that awesome sauce.
As always the best
This restaurant is wonderful. Recently had Thanksgiving Dinner there and it was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this place. Food was excellent, staff very attentive and atmosphere is really nice. Easy parking and no wait if you make reservations.
Absolutely delightful! Introduced a couple and thumbs up all the way. Can’t wait for their new location. Superb, quality eating experience!
The best Italian food!!! I usually don't choose this type of food, however the care and attention to preparing the food is exceptional!!
There is not a lot to say. We go there maybe twice a year and would more if we could afford it. That is not to say that their prices are unreasonable - they match the quality pretty well. Maybe the food is better than the prices would suggest. I would eat any of their dishes but particularly like the lamb shank. Oh, the tiramisu is great
We have been eating at Chianti's off and on for a few years. Not once have we had a bad meal. Everything is fresh and delicious, and the service is fantastic. Highly recommend.
Outstanding food and service! Mike is the best server....ever!!
Really great food. Been there twice so far and I plan to return. They always have a specials menu to mix it up. Wine list is outstanding. Bar is small but that's OK with me. Depending on the time of day you visit, the noise level can be moderate or quiet. Outdoor seating is available as well. A more local scene than a hot spot however I believe the quality is exceptional!
The food was so delicious and the service was excellent!
We went on a Saturday night and it was nice.... just a feel good place.
We will be back.
Dinner was great, it was our 1st time, the food was full flavored,my husband and I enjoyed the chicken fettuccine with added prawns and mushrooms. Impressive portions, and tasty wine choices. We will definitely go back. The marinara dip that comes with the bread is homemade and amazing.
Food is delicious & something for everyone. Intimate if you want to be. A nice place to go for special occasions or not
Mike has been our waiter the last 5 times we’ve been in and he always remembers our drinks and most of the time our menu choices! Food is fabulous and everyone is is fantastic !
Service was good although I do wonder why one has to order the meal before bread is brought to the table. Vodka and tonic needed a lime but otherwise fine. Cosmo tasty but a little small.
Veal saltimbocca was very tasty and more than adequate in serving size. Spinach salad with shrimp was a good choice for a smaller appetite.
Overall an ok experience.
I took my 2 kids here to eat. As I said in my facebook review; the server was a pleasure, with a great attitude. The food was delicious. HOWEVER, the server sections in that place make ZERO sense. I watched two servers straddle the whole restaurant floor instead of having each on one side of the room. They were unable to keep watch on all their tables at once and it was incredibly detrimental to my experience. Our food took over an hour (for some spaghetti and meatballs) being in the service industry for many years myself, I didn't blame the server, he was doing the absolute best he could given the circumstances. Management needs to fix the sections, and definitely keep an eye on ticket times. I will come back, but won't be bringing my children as it's simply too long to wait for two hungry kids.
Management may want to consider adding staff on the floor and not spitting up the sections for the wait staff.
The waiters are running around like the heads are cut off from one side of the dining room to the other, it doesn't look professional.
Chicken Parm, seafood ravioli, and manicotti was great, osso bucco was average. Lemonicello tartufo was amazing. small restaurant, so call for reservations, a little loud inside, but comfortable.
Nice service, chicken piccata was wonderful. Some had a special, calimari steak but it seemed breaded and deep fried, they prefer egg wash pan fried calimari.
Best Italian food in Brentwood. By far. Good wine list and full bar also:-)
Excellent service and food. Looking forward to returning.
My family has only been here a few times but every time the food was excellent! The waiter even remembered my cocktail drink from our first visit. Michael is absolutely an outstanding waiter and I highly recommend this restaurant.
This little neighborhood gem never disappoints - unless we forget to make a reservation on a weekend. Food is flavorful and fresh. Service is friendly but not pushy. Good wine selection and menu options...but would love to see more vegetarian-type options. Definitely recommend...just be sure to make a reservation on a Friday or Saturday night!
Great service, clean inviting atmosphere. Great for date night. Amazing food and wine.
My first time coming here and it was amazing! From start to finish they blew e away at how delicious everything was! I could eat the soup everyday, the spaghetti and meatballs were great. Can’t wait to go back!
Awesome food and service!! Always our favorite!
The best neighborhood restaurant in Brentwood! Food is always consistent and the service has gotten better and better. Love this place
From our last dining experience at Chianti's, tonight was a good change. Food was great, service was very good, even though the restaurant was full, I never saw anyone complain. Even the owner was out working the floor and talking with guests. I definitely recommend Brentwood folks give it a try.
Lovely neighborhood restaurant with excellent service. It was a bit pricey, but worth every penny! Great to add one more upscale Brentwood to my short list.
Delicious prepared to order Italian cuisine. You will not bed disappointed!
Have been to Chiantis' perhaps 7 or 8 times now and have not been disappointed. The food is in my opinion exceptional. Fast, friendly service and the Italian music playing is a nice touch. However, on a couple of occasions, the noise level has been higher than I would prefer when hoping for a quiet dinner.
Always a wonderful experience. Best food and service in town.
We have been wanting to try this restaurant and I'm wondering why we waited so long. We thoroughly enjoyed it. From cocktails through dessert, everything was fabulous. It was better than I expected and it will be our new favorite place for our special dates. We have been going to an Italian restaurant in Pleasanton for our special occasions but now we have a place that is even better than that place and it's local. I look forward to our next visit to Chianti. It will be soon.
Terrific restaurant located in a strip mall - don’t be put off by that. Food and Service are terrific. Head waiter has an amazing memory.....remembers people and their favorite drinks and food preferences. He is a great asset to this restaurant, and one of the reasons we go to eat there.
This was a great find! We moved from the San Leandro area and missed our favorite restaurant, Paradiso. This is the next best thing, and I would say even better! A new favorite in our Brentwood book :)
Food & Sauces were very tasty. The service was excellent & the price was reasonable.
Love having this cozy eatery in the neighborhood. It's our favorite go-to for Italian food close to home. Menu options are great, wine list is respectable, and service is good. It's small, so be sure to make a reservation on Friday or Saturday night.
So the great reviews and was so disappointed. Not that busy, but had seated three large parties. Must had overwhelmed kitchen staff because orders were slow coming out. Wait staff did their job but were not very friendly. Don't think we will return.
The food was amazing the service was outstanding, I would recommend it definitely.
