Nice Ambiance

Before a show at the theater (across the street), we met some friends for dinner at Chianti. We sat at the bar. Ambiance was very nice. Service was just ok I had the Frutti de Mare. The seafood was good, but once I ate that, the sauce seemed to be somewhat tasteless. Because it was not... read more

What a great spot to sit (or not sit) :) and listen to Jazz and the Blues! A fun place to meet a date, have fun with friends or head out solo! They had a nice wine selection and some fun Martini's.

Go Sunday at 4-7 pm to hear Open Mike. No amateurs here, just great sounds mostly jazz or blues. Great drinks and small plates round out a great evening

Fairly rushed service with better than average food. Bar clientele seemed to be out of star wars with a collection of locals.

We found the perfect table for two behind the piano The music is consistently great. Every time we eat there the food is great. But we frequently stop in to listen to some eclectic jazz and blues.

This place is Over the Moon. Service very good, ambiance great, music oh so good! Jazz so well done. The food made by jaw drop! Had to compliment the chefs for their extreme creativeness and expertise. I had tortellini with wild mushroom sauce. My friend had eggplant parmigiana. Wow. The bread, oh, and the spread, oh, oh. Coffee too. A... More

I visited Chianti last night before a show at the Cabot Theatre across the street. The restaurant was closed due to a private party, so we were seated in the jazz lounge area. The waitress was good, but clearly overwhelmed, as she was the only waitress serving 8-10 tables. The room was so dark we could not read the menu.... More

We went to the Cabot Theater and stopped for a beverage before the show. The atmosphere was upbeat and crowded with theater-goers. All of the food that was being served around us looked and smelled fabulous, so after the show we returned for dinner. The servers were a bit rushed due to the crowd, but they stopped by regularly to... More
