We were driving back to San Francisco after a extremely long day of driving down PCH / 101 from Eureka. We dropped into the restaurant about 8 30 without a reservation. We were seated within a few minutes. The waitress was very courteous. We ordered eggplant lasagna, traditional lasagna, bruscetta, ravioli., and a pizza. We all ate from one another's... More

Chianti Cucina in Novato has great food and a friendly staff. We really like this place, the only drawback is that it can be noisy when it is crowded. Otherwise, everything is great!

We love Chianti's! Very friendly staff, excellent cioppino. We always have a great time when we come here. The do a great job of creating a nice cosy atmosphere too. They also cater for kids (as Novato is a family kind of town this is key). We'll be back soon!

This is the best Italian restaurant in my community which is downtown Novato. Though the exterior is very unassuming, it is conveniently located on the main N-S street only minutes from the freeway. Parking is sufficient. The interior is charming, though somewhat uninspired. We've eaten there several times, mostly early evening and have had satisfactory experiences every time. We once... More

Four of us went to this restaurant on a Saturday night, and were pleased that we had made a reservation because it was crowded. Two of us had the evening special, seafood cioppino, $25, which was well prepared, full of good, tasty seafood, but rather salty. The two others in our party had pasta dishes; again, well prepared, tasty, but... More

It seemed like they were short staffed. We had been served by 3 different people. We did not get offered coffee after dinner and had to ask for our check after waiting about 15 minutes. Will try for lunch maybe slower pace. Would go back for dinner 1 more time to give them another chance.

This was our third visit to this lovely Italian Restaurant in Novato. My wife had the Inalata Romana and I had the 'daily special', Prawns & Peas Risotto. Both were excellent. The Risotto had 5 large prawns and spinach was substituted for the peas that evening. The large portion of my Risotto dish also provided me with a great lunch... More

The food was amazing but more important the service is incredible. The place is busy so it can be noisy. The staff is very nice and helpful. I will go back soon.
