my wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. We chose here because our (possible) son-in-law-to-be gave my wife a gift certificate for this family of restaurants (they own 3 or 4) for birthday or Christmas and she chose our anniversary to go here (thanks honey). The food and service were amazing. They had a number of specials, ranging... More

My boyfriend and I went to Chianti for his birthday. The food was AH-MAZING. So many delicious sounding choices on the drink menu, I couldn't choose! Ended up trying 2 different drinks and loved them both. Best Carpaccio I've had in my life. Delicious tiramisu for dessert, and they sing happy birthday in Italian! I loved it so much, I... More

When we stay in Saratoga Springs, we always have dinner here. I love the zuppa de pesce and my husband has a variety of pastas he chooses among. He also says there are good choices not too overpriced on the wine list. This is a boisterous restaurant, and is not shy about pricing.

Saratoga Spring is awash with eating possibilities. Trusting TA to point us in the right direction we landed here in hope! We weren't disappointed exceptional service matched with fab food and a great ambiance made for a wonderful eating experience. Try the angelhair pasta with prawns - you will not be disappointed The chocolate martinis are also amazing!

To start, the service was fantastic. Our server John was both personable and knowledgable. He was capable of helping guide our meal into EXACTLY what we had in mind. We tend to eat our dinners very slow and there was no pressure on us to "eat and get the heck out" as is the case in so many reputable restaurants.... More

Taking our chances, checking previous reviews, asking the locals. We were not disappointed! Very pleased, in fact. We had some risottos. I personally loved the wilted romaine salad. Outstanding service. Euro decor. Lots of loud talkers all around us. Hey, and there's rabbit on the menu!

Chianti is one of my favorite restaurants in Saratoga Springs. We have been going here since 2008. They have a great Happy Hour - you can get a lovely salad, a plate of sliced steak, and a generous glass of wine - a full dinner - for $15. If you prefer to have dinner, or you missed Happy Hour, the... More

My wife and I ate here last evening. I had the filet Gorgonzola and she had the roasted eggplant appetizer as her meal. Both were okay. The filet was cooked perfectly (med rare) but the Gorgonzola sauce was not "out of this world" in my opinion. Service was excellent, as was the bread. That earns the very good rating.

Went to Chianti's on Mothers Day based on a friends recommendation. Online reviews said food was good but noise levels were high. I agree the food was very good (as was the service) but I did not find the noise level to be a problem. And it was a packed room for Mothers Day! Looking forward to my next visit.
