Modern edge on classic Italian

Food, wine, atmosphere and service are always of fine quality at Chianti Classico. I regard it as one of my favourite restaurants because of the total reliability of those qualities on every visit; you will not be disappointed.

Due to the popularity of this place. We booked 12 months ahead. We were not disappointed. Well worth the wait, the food, the staff and the ambience. Thank you Chianti.

Simply the highest quality fine Italian food. If you are a visitor to Adelaide the way to compliment this ecellent and fine Italian fare is to order a bottle of some of our world famous South Australian wines from the extensive wine list. South Australia is the wine Capitol of Australia and the Italian menu at Classico is well suited... More

Chianti Classico is one of our favourite restaurants. Supremely professional, but friendly, and always guest are given a warm and courteous reception and service. I've never eaten any meal there that wasn't delicious. Bright and intelligent staff and the wonderful Maria who is the owner and is an institution. We need to erect a statue to her.

It is a joy to go to Chianti, albeit an expensive one. The staff excel in their knowlegde of the food and wine, and the service is excellent. It is a must to book a table, the Brunches on a Sunday yummy but booked out weeks ahead.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner - you will not eat better. The iconic Maria will greet you and take you to your table. Her trained, courteous staff will be at your elbow with water and to take your order - and suggest what is good on 'today's special' menu. Love breakfast here. Try the Baccala - you will not be disappointed.... More
