Dinner

A dinner for three...just like home, met old friends as fellow diners, the welcome was like an old friend. The tastiest, freshest seafood and pasta that you could possibly wish for. A great atmosphere, silver service authentic Italian eating. A Yarra valley Rose rounded out a perfect evening.

Having eaten several times at this establishment it has always been consistently good on every level. Great service, great menu (don't go past the rabbit) and a relaxed ambience despite being always full. We did BYO and corkage was 25 dollars. Thoroughly recommend.

Chianti is a nice place to go for a business dinner. However, I do not understand the hype around it. They serve good traditional Italian food, well presented in a nice atmosphere, but then this is charged at top dollars as if it would be a culinary destination.

I keep going back because we love the silver service experience. The ambience, service and food is second to none. My husband and I have been on special occassions... More

As one of Adelaide's favourite restaurants I was surprised to find a wine list that was underwhelming in its choice of Australian wines, not the place to take international visitors! The food was well prepared and presented and the service was superb.

I recently went for breakfast, and we were seated very quickly with menus and coffee/juice ordered with a list of the specials delivered quickly as well. My special, scone with salmon was quite nice, whilst my dining companion's breakfast looked and tasted pretty good too. The service was good, however they were pretty rushed and our second coffee order took... More

Can't go wrong at Chianti 10/10, menu selection was amazing, quality of food and attention to detail was beyond our expectation. We had a wonderful time everything was perfect.
