We make Chianti reservations whenever we are in Saratoga for Skidmore visits. We have always found the service professional, the ambiance special and the food consistent and well made. On our last visit on a busy night we were seated in a tented alley. We asked to be moved and the host was accommodating. What was puzzling was the reason... More

Chianti has a great traditional Italian menu. The food is well executed, fresh, and well presented. They can host larger parties, and is also a great spot for a date night. My only complaint is that the space can feel a bit tight, and sometimes you can feel like you are a part of the table next to yours conversation.

You can have a nice dinner here but it depends if there is too many people.... It was really noisy when we got there... we asked for another room, and we got it. Food is very good, location, too, and prices, too. Enjoy the kitchen, you can watch them....an extensive variety of wines, too.

Hostess was rude but other than her, service was fairly good. Food was good, portions were average. I think it was a good experience overall but not too great.

Mapquest did not make it easy... we had to park on a sidestreet after circling for quite some time....but it was worth it!!! The place is romantic, the host is charming in an effervescent European way, and the food is fresh and delicious! They have herbs GROWING IN HERE - that's how fresh the food is. The building suggests it... More

We were greeted at the door with hugs, kisses and Italian greetings, I'm assuming this was by the owner. Our reservation was for 8:00 and the restaurant was still very busy and looked filled to capacity. We ordered a variety of pasta dishes, salads and the osso bucco. All were wonderful and the osso bucco was like none other that... More

Don't let the exterior food you. Inside it is authentic Italian. 4 of our group of 12 returned from Italy just 6 months earlier and we were shocked on many levels. The decor was so authentic and the food even more so. We stayed out of the tourist spots in Italy to 'see' Italy. This meant real Italian food. Well,... More
