We love this place!! We've been coming here for 10 years and it has never disappoints! Our waitress Stephanie was wonderful! We don't like being rushed and she got that without us having to say anything. The bar is always crazy busy but the staff is in top of it. Our meal was excellent as always! We both for pasta...

Chianti has excellent food, but I will not go there again. The servers were not friendly, the tables are so close together that you can barely get into your seat, and it is soooo noisy you can't even have a conversation at your own table without yelling. Very pricy for an unpleasant experience. Go to Pennell's instead, much better!

We caught up with an out of town friend who remembered dining at Chianti Il Ristorante and wanted to go again. The table shared some appetizers. Calamari was good.. eggplant a little chewy. The pasta dishes were all very good. Overall, all were pleased.

Dear Abarasol, Thank you for your positive review on your visit to Chianti. We have addressed the eggplant and our Chef has reviewed with his team the importance of the consistency in the preparation for the dish as it should not be chewy. Our apology. I am glad we were able to provide the dining experience the DZ Restaurants were... More

Dined at Chianti last night. The bar was was busy, but the bartenders were up to the task. The bartender waited on us immediately, and had a cheerful attitude. We waited only a few moments and were seated very quickly.....don't go without reservations. The wine was excellent, the food first rate, but our waitress was not. I felt we were... More

The funky contemporary atmosphere sets the stage for the dining experience here. The salads are delightful. I love, love the penne ala vodka, the best anywhere as they make it with a hazelnut liqueur twist. The filet mignon with gorgonzola is heavenly. My husband loves the Cioppino, all fresh seafood. If you are lucky enough to catch it when they... More

We dine at Chianti when we are in the area visiting family. Very good food. Since moving to this location the restaurant and menu never seems to change, but large selection of menu items and always a good buzz in the bar area and dining room.

Celebrated our Anniversary tonight & hadn't been here in long time. Excellent service, ambiance, lively atmosphere. My Osso Buco was tender, flavorful, though potatoes dry. He raved about his beef tenderloin.

Excellent food, excellent service. We had a fantastic meal at Chianti. Started with the antipasto appetizer which encompassed a great variety of the appetizers. My wife had the salmon and I had the fruitti di mare. Both were delicious and the portion sizes were crazy huge. I could keep going, but everything was wonderful, better than before (they must have... More
