I have always loved this restaurant - it was always very true to label, reliable, great food and excellent service. I recently returned to SA from interstate so have not been to this restaurant for over 5 years and we went there last Tuesday morning for breakfast. I was (really) very disappointed at how long the Kitchen was taking to... More

I most recently had brunch for a friend's birthday at Chianti. I chose it because I have had several wonderful meals at all times of the day, seated inside and out. We were lucky enough that our autumn morning was bright and cheery so we enjoyed the ambience of the cosy outdoor area (which is well heated when it's colder).... More

Going to Chianti’s is always fantastic. Recently, I went there for breakfast for the first time and it was absolutely fabulous. Great selection; eggs, crepes, toast, bircher muesli – you name it! Staff are always friendly and accommodating. The breakfast cocktails are absolutely amazing, with the Bellini’s a stand out! I have also been here for lunch and it never... More

The food is undoubtedly excellent, and the kitchen were wonderful enough to treat myself and my small group of friends to a lovely starter on the house. However the fantastic food was soured by the disappointing and rude service. My friends and I were not only mocked by the waitress when we requested to only have water before our meal... More

Visited Chianti recently for a small birthday function with friends. Wait staff were fantastic, particularly the sommelier who made some great suggestions, allowed us to try a number of things before deciding and promoted the wine (and beer!) list very well. Food was very good, but the service really stood out. There are more 'fine dining' experience around, but for... More

Excellent personalized service but food can be a little rich if you have a sensitive tummy. outside tables in summer are great, inside can be a little noisy for breakfast.

Great food, great staff, excellent wine choice and great setting - this is the benchmark against which all others should be measured. Been around a while but never disappoints.
