The other reviews capture the food . As much as I agree it is very good, I don't think I would return because I was hoarse from yelling for two days. Suggestion: the place is configured so that they could easily create a "quiet" area for those of us who prefer to have a conversation with our dining companions. Just... More

The food,ambience and service were all first rate. We go there every year at Race time and are never disappointed. The wine selection is outstanding and we had a Siciian red that was excellent. The menu elections are very good and the presentation leaves nothing to be desired. The service was up to every expectation. Just a fine restaurant that... More

Friends came in from out of town looking for a gourmet Italian meal. We took them to Chianti's and they were not disappointed! Each couple spilt salads (as they are huge!) and then ordered the Risotto as an appetizer. It was delicious with a ton of juicy filet mignon bits. The rest of our meals, bolognaise, salmon, etc were tasty... More

The restaurant is located in town. The food is very good. I just wish there were more meat choices (chicken/ veal). The pasta dish that I had was tasty. My spouse enjoyed the pork special. It does get noisy when crowded. Overall, it is a good choice.

This was a wonderful dining experience with respect to the food, ambiance, and service. There is a special "early menu" served if you are seated by 5:30 pm that offers a 3-course meal (choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert) for a very reasonable price. Information about what it includes is on their website, but they did not provide this menu... More

I am a definite food lover. I am also a lover of a great experience while eating at a restaurant. Chianti exceeds expectations. Before I speak of the food, I have to speak of the most memorable part of my experience & that would be the staff. Jim the manager makes you feel at home & is such a genuinely... More

Dined here August 2015. We walked in without reservations on a Monday night. It was jammed but we were accommodated. The menu is full of varied choices and unique options. The food was perfection!!! If I lived close - closer than 4.5 hours away - I'd go tonight! Only dine side is not enough bathrooms for the size of the... More

I have been derelict in not writing this review sooner, since we visited this wonderful restaurant two months ago, in June 2015. And we arrived under perhaps the worst circumstances to begin a fine dining experience: badly under-dressed, early, and with a last-minute request for a quite table. The gracious staff and owner made us feel like family, put us... More
