We met friends here for a reunion. The service was pretty good, although the restaurant was busy on this Friday night. Some of the entrees were just so-so, although my duck was sensational (from the regular menu). The duck portion (see photo) wasn't large, but was fine for me. We thought the bill was high for the quality, about $90... More

We love Chianti! Always at the top of our list. When we want something light, we will share a bottle of wine and the antipasto for two which offers a fun variety of hot and cold items. Service is always impeccable and the food is always consistently excellent. A must try.

Kristin - Thank you so much for your amazing review! So glad that we are able to continue to give you the dining experience we work so hard to provide for each and every guest. That antipasto platter is a crowd favorite and more than enough for 2. Add the bottle of wine and it's the start of a great... More

Had the opportunity to meet for dinner here for a business debrief and was delighted with the menu. Many different choices and the service here was great. This particular day they had rabbit on the menu and was great tasting. I would highly recommend. Thanks

The food was inconsistent, some items were good, some not so good. The scallops were delicious, the pasta with fennel and sausage was very good. The salad with butter lettuce, prosciutto, and cheese lacked flavor and fell flat. The calamarrati was bland, the calamari was rubbery and the dish arrived cold. I mentioned it to the server and he just... More

Great food, busy bar, large menu and extremely popular !!!! We've eaten here many times. We enjoy their fish, meat and pasta. Authentic Italian. Drinks and wine are also great. Reservations a must during the season. A real favorite 👍👍👍👍👍

Had a lovely dinner here, food was excellent. It is northern Italian so don't expect to find cheese ravioli. The dishes they made were creative and used fine ingredients, I had a risotto with filet pieces which was delicious

The noise level in this restaurant was crazy, and inhibited conversation. Please add tablecloths to mute some of the noise! The service was mixed--our waitress was good (once she arrived after we sat there for over 10 minutes), but the under-waitress (who bused the table and poured water) was not friendly. The food was also mixed. My husband's duck was... More

I am very sorry to read your review of your recent visit to Chianti Ristorante.

Lovely experience, always is dining with DZ restaurants. The staff are what make all of these restaurants amazing (Boca, Al Forno, Chianti) We had a great waiter that night (October 15th at 7:30). He was very theatrical and passionate with presenting us the menu, which we loved. Quick with bringing the drinks, food came shortly after. We ordered espresso martinis... More

Went because my partner raved about it and remembered it from years ago. It was even better than she remembers. Exceptional food, different from many other authentic Italian restaurants I've been to (and yes, I am Italian and picky). Our server Andrew was knowledgeable, polished, interesting and even managed all of these qualities while having a sense of humor. Nice!!... More
