We just moved into the area and have just been to Chianti for the first time. The food and wine were a revelation! What impressed us was the freshness of the food, the quiet but attentive service and the excellent, if limited, wine list. This was a quiet Australia Day weekend and we would encourage... read more

I had high expectations of this place run by the owners of the amazing Mixed Business cafe down the road. The vibe once you step in as actually quite nice, better than it looks from the outside. Staff also very friendly. But food was hit an miss. We had oysters and the croquette for starter which were good, as was... More

A small recently refurbished place. Well worth visiting. We had a table of 8 and they offered us their upstairs private function room. Great place for a family get together. Had a drink at the little bar downstairs whilst waiting for others to arrive. We were a little flummoxed by the Italian wines but the wait person was most helpful.... More

I was invited to visit this restaurant at the request of my daughter (who is certainly 'hipper' than I am) and was therefore not sure what to expect. But it was all good. The restaurant itself is not large and therefore not too noisy even on a Saturday night when we were there. The wait staff did a first class... More

It's so good to see Chianti refreshed and delicious in our hood. It was always such a comfort food restaurant with the owner, Franco. Now the new guard are focusing on great service and Italian pizzazz. The Osso Bucco was outstanding and the brussel sprouts with pancetta was great. The wine list is a tad expensive.

Very tast and fresh. The desserts only 5 on the menu. However the tiramisu was unbelievable the taste and size. Also offered gluten free option and... More

Loved this place! Real Italian food. Forget Lygon St this is the real deal. I had the gnocci bolognaise and my partner had the chicken tirolesi, both were sublime. What's also great is that they do glutin free food for 95% of the dishes.Really enjoyed the atmosphere and Franco the owner's walm welcome.
