Michael was a very attentive server. The food was great. Chianti’s is always very consistent with the quality of food and service. Looking forward to their expansion into the larger building in the same shopping center.

The food was excellent and our waiter was kind, helpful and prompt. We were sad to see some people turned away when tables remained open. Maybe the new location will prevent this from happening. The prawns and pesto app was delicious.

great place, fine food, great service. Can sometimes be a little loud if there is a rowdy group as the place is not large but food and service make up for that

Reservations on Valentine's Day - they were extremely busy but we were seated promptly. Full menu not available, however selections were great. They were out of a few things - understandable due to the volume, so we understood. Will go back on a "normal" day to sample a wider menu. Food was great and service attentive.

We had our date night the night before Valentines. I had googled the restaurant as we had never been and OpenTable populated so I submitted a reservation. The restaurant is very cute! Small...probably capacity of 70. Tables were set...linen tablecloth's and napkins, silverware and glasses. To my surprise when we were served our sodas in plastic bottles with a glass/ice. One server for our side of the restaurant and it became busy...too much for 1 server to handle. Bread came out after meal was served. Our entrees were delicious! This is not a kid friendly restaurant... Menu ala Carte dinners range from $17 on up. Will definitely go again.

Absolutely delicious food! Mussels, clams, prawns and salmon in a delectable sauce. The perfect way to celebrate my birthday. The recommended wine was spot-on, and complemented my husband's lasagne as well. Started with two Lemon Drops, so good! Great restaurant, looking forward to my next time!

We had a wonderful dinner. My husband and I both had the lamb...very good! We also enjoyed the pesto prawn appetizer. The service was very good. Going early on a Monday was perfect for enjoying a nice evening of conversation with my husband.

This is the second time we’ve eaten at Chianti and again we were not disappointed at all. We celebrated a birthday there and had a great time. The cocktails are good, the entrées are excellent, the soup and salads are delicious, the desserts are yummy and the waiters really take care of you without hovering. We will be back for sure.

Chianti used to be a regular stop for us. Life got busy and we just stopped going out to dinner. It was our first "date" night in a while and we chose to go back to our old favorite. It didn't disappoint. Thanks

Last time we came you were out of the Lamb Shanks so this time my husband was able to get it and said it is probably the best he has tasted! The other 3 of us all had something different and each person was more than pleased with their choice. We had very good service.
