Chianti Restaurant is a long time Gaslamp Quarter favorite, known for its authentic Italian cuisine, including hand made pastas, fresh seafood, and classic steaks. Our menu features recipes inherited from the rustic provinces of Tuscany, and are crafted from the freshest ingredients imported from Italy.

We offer an extraordinary wine selection featuring both Californian & Italian Regional wines, as well as a full bar that provides a wide range of liquors and after-dinner drinks. Our staff maintains a refined yet relaxing ambiance for a stellar dining experience amid the tiled entryway, plush seating & beautiful Italian accents. Guests enjoy our window tables and patio dining amid the bustling Gaslamp's busy nightlife.

Our historic building is adjacent to San Diego’s Convention Center, Petco Park & Horton Plaza. We’re also close to many of downtown’s biggest hotels and hottest nightclubs. Private or semi-private rooms may be booked for 20-65 guests

Fantastic place for group dining/business dinner. Great veggies, cheese, fresh fish, meats, pasta, condiments. Both the pasta & pizza are great. Super fresh and light. The octopus salad was delightful. Can’t wait until I return. Top-notch Italian steakhouse and more. Everyone of our group of 10 really enjoyed the meal. One standout was the chicken parm "pizza" that we ordered for the table. Excellent wine list -- both broad and deep, including some affordable options

The restaurant was very elegant and cozy. We went as a family to enjoy our last evening together for our vacation. The food was outstanding with large portions. Wait staff was excellent and attended to our needs.

We spent a lovely evening at Chianti! The food was plentiful and very good. The service was exceptional, and everyone was warm and welcoming. Christmas music played in the background, and the holiday lights were festive. Would definitely go here again.

Well, my review isn't exactly accurate. Chianti was actually CLOSED when I arrived at the time on my reservation from Open Table. There was a big yellow sign saying the restaurant was being sold. The sign was posted 11.14, and I arrived on 11.18 for lunch. Others went there later that night and it was open. So I'm not sure what happened, but I had a reservation and the restaurant was closed.

Food was great and our server was very nice.
However, we were a party of 15 with a reservation and it took them 1hr and 25min to bring out the food! The restaurant wasn’t even busy. There were more empty table then there were people.
