This was our second time to Chianti and we loved it. It was a Tuesday night so it wasn't crowded. We were assured that we would find a seat in the lounge when the music started so we ate in the dining room. We had a window seat to watch the goings on in Beverly. It was a little chilly... read more

This was our first time at Chianti's and I will definitely go back. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We didn't make reservations but got there 15-20 minutes after the restaurant opened. Was seated right away. The waitress made a few suggestions that were great. The meals are not very big meals so if you are a... More

Sorry to have to do this because I have enjoyed Chianti, the Jazz Club for years. The music is always excellent. But on this occasion, we went for the food, not the music and were deeply disappointed. I went there with my family for a 50th birthday celebration, but our group was only 4 people. Despite having a reservation, we... More

What a fun place, and one of the hidden gems in Beverly. Owner Rich is often checking in on his customers to make sure they are having a perfect evening. Chianti is a blend of hip and homey, between the Jazz bar where you are treated to a vibrant array of amazing musicians, to the intimate back rooms for larger... More

A great anniversary party. A bit crowded for 35 people but food was plentiful, delicious, and service was excellent. Everyone had a good time.

Our group of 8 had a wonderful experience on a snowy Saturday night in Beverly. Our server was very happy to provide us with wine and bread, as she patiently waited for the other half of our party to arrive (30 mins later!). Our table was located in a cute sun-room where we could watch the snow fall outside of... More

We went here with friends to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. We had to wait almost 30 mins for our table even though we had a reservation. Our table was at the end of the bar up a few stairs. At this point there was no live music being played but you could not hear yourself think because of the... More

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
