Chianti is an exceptional restaurant in Beverly, MA which now boasts several excellent places to dine. Owner Rich Marino is credited with beginning Beverly's growing reputation as a top diner's choice when he opened Chianti several years ago. Today, the quality of the food remains exceptional; each dish is fresh, well presented and served by a friendly and efficient staff.... More

My wife and I enjoy going to Chianti every few weeks. The atmosphere is different than any other establishment in the area and the jazz music is great. I love the food, especially the butterflied calimari, but the menu is somewhat limited. Restaurant service is outstanding. We did have a long wait trying to eat at the bar once and... More

This small restaurant has been in downtown Beverly for many years and keeps getting better. There is an adjoining music room, with bar as well as the original dining rooms. Food is fresh and well done....always. Music weekdays and weekends is not notch. Mostly jazz and blues. A perfect place for singles, couples or small groups of any age. Would... More

I found this jem about 5 years ago when I moved back to the area. I'm always up for live music, not having a cover charge to boot, and music almost every night. I walk in 3 or 4 times a month. It's cozy, and comfortable with well trained servers. The menu is small, but everything is yummy! The owner... More

I love this place, you can get a fabulous meal and then relax and enjoy some great music. I had dinner with my brothers last night and Keith took great care of us at the bar. Then we moved over to some seats in the lounge and listened to some excellent blues. I'm sorry to say I don't remember the... More

I think the food is good. The first time we were there it was pretty amazing, however, it has disappointed since then.... I feel the food is still good, we have sat only at the bar area when there and it is a mess and there seams to be so much confusion with the staff that it makes me feel... More

Hubby and I went with another couple last Saturday night and absolutely loved the atmosphere, tables and staff. We ended up in the front window which made it extra cozy. I had the Chianti Sangria (red) which was wonderful to start with and the other couple each had a ginger drink that was a special. They were delish. Everyone wanted... More

The food was mixed - very small portions, some good, some average. Good service and a great place to listen to music (we didn't sit in that area however!)

I find it difficult to rate Chianti's. If I was to rate it strictly as an Italian restaurant - I would say it was good - but not great. The quality of the food is OK - certainly not up there with the best of the North End, for instance. But certainly passable. I like the calamari app., which is... More
