Great ambience in this place - attentive service too. The seafood was perfect - both sea bass special and the salmon from the menu. All dishes ordered were fantastic - tasty and attractively presented. Great bottle of wine. Excellent tiramisu. I'm going back tonight to...More

We've been several times to Chianti's and each time it's a letdown. The one really positive comment I have is the service we've received from Mark and Allan (?). The food is just ok even after trying several of the dishes. DH goes back to...More

We were visiting my daughter & son-in-law during the Thanksgiving Holiday. They hadn't try Chianti & wanted to this time. The food was just so so. I was So Disappointed in the Bolognese Sauce. It tasted like Rago "doctored up" with a slight sugary undertaste....More
