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...

Solid food and excellent waitstaff. Had a seat in the middle of the restaurant and would definitely have preferred a side or corner table as it was a bit noisy and not so comfortable for intimate conversation-- I felt a little too exposed and distracted. However the food was pleasing and the servers were highly attentive without being intrusive-- we... More

If my wife and I go out to eat, this is our place. Amazing food EVERY time. Servers who pay attention to you, a staff that keeps things moving and clean, a menu that could charge more given it's quality (but doesn't), and an experience that always seems to meet expectations. [no, I don't work there or own it] The... More

We arrived on time for our reservation. The attitude of the hostess was less than desirable for what is a lead service position in a nicer dining establishment. When we sat down in the middle of what is a lively atmosphere we noticed a table just being cleared in the corner and asked to sit there. Our 'escort' said she... More

Based on Tripadvisor, we choose to visit Chianti. We arrived early with reservations and we seated in A dining room where we were the only people. This provided the opportunity for the owner to stop and visit. We had a great conservation about this farm which raises most of his produce. The wine list was extensive and on lauded by... More
