Visited chianti after and absence of some years when it was a regular for me. I must have been seduced by the new young restaurants but chianti as always can't be beaten. Food, service it has the lot!

Celebrated a special 0 birthday with a group of ten friends. First Class welcome and service from the minute we arrived. BYO accepted with a smile. Extensive choice of food and perfectly timed service. Definitely the best Italian food in Adelaide!

We ate here yesterday as a special birthday celebration for a friend. It was utterly stunning food and service. Every dish was beautifully presented with plenty of choices. One of the group needs gluten free and they were amazing. They brought her a GF appetiser and GF bread free of charge, made sure she was really well catered for including... More

This is a favorite eating place when in Adelaide. Always great food, excellent menu choices and professional and courteous staff. I had a business dinner there recently and booked the board room for a private dinner. Its a great room, quiet and cosy, our fixed menu was superb, steak cooked to perfection and the service from our waiter exceptional.

Stopped into Chianti for a weekday breakfast without a reservation and were warmly greeted then seated without any delay even though the restaurant was very busy for a weekday. We chose Roasted Pumpkin Waffles served with crispy pancetta and fried eggs - a wonderful combination of sweet and light pumpkin waffles and savoury eggs and pancetta - the dish was... More

I had breakfast here one morning in April while staying with a friend who conveniently lives nearby. I had the Passionfruit Crepes which were delicious; tender crepes with a nice Passionfruit sauce and slices of strawberries and nectarines all lightly cooked. It had the benefit of being very tasty without being too heavy, or too sweet. I find the mistake... More

Chianti Classico [now back to trading simply as Chianti] never disappoints. We have been visiting Chianti in its current & former form for nearly 30 years and just one visit would show why it is still so successful. Attention to detail. In the kitchen, with the wine list and the customer service. We recently had dinner on a Friday night... More

Bad experience for my husband and I. Ordered garlic bread first. It was dry toast with a bulb of garlic chopped in half and a dish of olive oil. Couldn't dip the toast in the oil as it was so hard. I ordered an entree size of the swimmer crab pasta which tasted good but my husband ordered a full... More

As the heading says the rabbit dish I had was one of the best meat dishes of any kind I have had. My wife also enjoyed her blue swimmer crab linguine although it could have had more evidence of crab. With a few sides we were too full to eat dessert. The wine list runs for several pages with a... More
