I met a friend here for dinner. She recommended the restaurant because it was one of her favorite places to eat. I understand why. We got the gnocchi with a red sauce. It was absolutely delicious. The service was wonderful and the owner gave all of his guests a hug for coming in They have indoor and outdoor seating. I... More

My husband and I both had pasta dishes for entrees: I had the gnocchi in tomato cream sauce with shrimp and he had spaghetti carbonara. They were delicious, albeit blazing hot when they came to the table (I burned my tongue). The bread and herbed oil/water?/vinegar mixture that preceded the meal was odd, as if it didn't know quite what... More

We eat lunch downtown every other week & since the new ownership at Chianti, things have MUCH improved! Michelangelo is very Italian, very polite & remembered where we sat & after the first time we visited. If you're in a rush, go somewhere else. That's now how the real Italians do it. Relax, enjoy & savor the food. He will... More

Our family (nine) met here for lunch as it was midway for all of us to travel. The restaurant is small, reservations were essential and easy to make. Staff was helpful from start to finish. The food ranged from very good to excellent. There was a nice variety on the menu and the waiter was very helpful when we were... More

Service was very attentive as we were table 4 of 4 tables occupied. We didn't order traditional Italian dishes which may account for our low ratings of the food. We ordered the Alaskan salmon and the New York strip, both were bland. I excused with the reasoning that we should have ordered Italian dishes which is what they seem to... More

The service was great. One of the owners was very friendly. They were also open late, when other restaurants were closed.However, the food was okay - not very flavorful eggplant parmagiana & pasta primavera. Ambiance is good. Parking is on the street.

Took a chance on a take home dinner and it was delicious. We ordered two different veal dishes along with an appetizer. While waiting for our meals, meeting the chef and one of the owners was a treat. Looking forward to the next visit.

Thank auntkid
