Very nice. Made for a special New Year's day event with family.
Chianti's is trying some new fishes. My companions loved the appetizer of scallops on pureed sweet potato. As usual, the portions are large enough to take home another dinner sized meal.
Service Sucked: Sorry to be so blunt but it is what it is. My husband & I went here for dinner on a Tuesday night. It wasn't busy. The waitress took a long time to greet us. Took our order and someone else delivered our food. She never came back to ask if the food was good, if we wanted more wine or water. My husband had to bring our empty glasses to the bar to get water refills and he asked for the check. I had the Shrimp Fra Diablo and the sauce was VERY watery and it was all at the bottom of the dish. The food was cooked well just wish the sauce wasn't like water. The bartender brought us our tab and when the waitress finally showed up to retrieve it she never apologized. Perhaps she had an off night so we still gave her a good tip. But jeez
I love this place but am disappointed that they are closing. I hope that when they re-open that it is the same cuisine. I have celebrated birthdays, had luncheons and many meals here. It's the best place in town.
We went as a family for a Christmas season dinner. The ambiance was OK, but a bit loud. I was disappointed to have to ask to have our table candle lit, but then noticed only one other was lit on our side of the dining room. We ordered three different entrees. The swordfish special was very good, the pasta bolognese was good, but the veal saltambucca was VERY disappointing. The cheese was not melted, the veal was in odd square shapes that seemed very unnatural, was tough, and the overall dish was lukewarm - as if the kitchen were in a hurry to get it out. Not awful, but expected better.
I'm sad they took the clams casino off the menu :(
Service seemed a little more disjointed/disorganized than usual but overall a pleasant experience and the food was delicious as always.
Chianti's has excellent Italian food and seafood. Portions, especially for the Italian dishes are always large enough for another meal to take home. My husband has the veal sorrento, which is layers of veal, eggplant, cheese in an authentic tomato sauce with pasta on the side. I usually get the bolognese, but was tempted by a swordfish special and I was glad I made the choice. The service there is efficiant, the wine portions are generous, and especially given the size of the portions, Chianti's delivers great value with excellent food.
I was very disappointed with Chianti's during this visit. I have been coming here for many years and have always loved it. It seems like there's all new wait staff working here except for bar staff. I has a reservation and was seated right away but after 10 minutes I had to flag a hostess to ask if waitress knew we were seated. We finally got menus and waters. Our waitress was new and couldn't open a bottle of wine and had to bring it back to the bar to get help. I had to ask her about the specials for the evening . We ordered our meals and calamari for appetizer. The calamari was excellent. My wife's pasta meal was great but I ordered swordfish with just butter not lemon butter and it came out cooked DRY. The waitress had to go get me melted butter from the kitchen which didn't help much. I sure she didn't communicate my request properly to the kitchen. I should have sent the meal back. What bothered me most about the night was our waitress never came back to our table to fill our waters or even ask us how our food was after serving it. Very bad experience overall. We do love the Chianti's but food and especially service its not the same as before. We might try again one more time but I miss Vinnie. Anyone who has been coming here for years like me knows what I'm talking about.
My wife and I love the restaurant our server Amy was outstanding and a lot of fun.
Great Italian food! The pasta is al dente and the sauce is just right. Great apps! Great drinks! Friendly and attentive staff. The prices are in the right range... I've never had a bad meal here. My wife is from Naples Italy and she likes this place...
