We'd not been to this restaurant since it moved from its old Broadway location. The new place is much nicer and the food is better. We had to wait about 20 minutes, but were rewarded with one of the two corner tables. Try to reserve one of these if you are a couple as it gives you some separation in... More

Terrific, a gem. This was our fifth or sixth visit and every meal every time was excellent. Perfectly prepared pasta dishes, tasty sauces, most appetizers are excellent, salads are fresh and dressed well.

Upon our arrival for dinner we were greeted by the friendly staff and immediately seated for the beginning of an excellent dining experience. Water glasses were promptly filled, the bread basket arrived and our waiter reviewed the evenings specials. I would recommend the mezzanine alla vodka as it was the best I have ever eaten. My cousin had spaghetti al... More

The food here is wonderful. So is the service. If they removed every other table it would feel much more comfortable. Very noisy, due to the overcrowding I'm sure. For food this expensive, I prefer to have enough room to keep the server's butt out my face when he is serving the table next to me.

My niece and I came for dinner after a movie on a Sunday evening. We were greeted very nicely and brought to a small table. Service was quick and on the mark. Our glasses were filled and a bread basket delivered quickly, but even at that early stage the noise was overwhelming. I am not talking about the normal pleasant... More

my wife took me here for my 53rd birthday. The drinks and the food is so good. We both had pasta. Mine was penne alla vodka and it was delicious! My wife had a rigatoni dish that was very good also! I ordered the mussels and we shared a dessert. All in all a very romantic restaurant with great food... More

I came across Chianti about one year ago when I was looking for a romantic place to celebrate my third year anniversary with my girlfriend. I normally stay away from Italian places because, being born and raised in Italy, I always have very high expectation that are normally crashed when I get to see the menu (Chicken parmesan, meatball pasta,...

I was a fan of Chianti (and the other DZ restaurants) but I have seen a noticeable decline in the food quality this year. According to their web site, the owner and his wife are now focused on a farm they purchased. Unfortunately, they did not leave anyone behind to focus on the food and service. Of the four menu...
