We had a great time at Chianti. The wait for our table was short, the food was excellent. The service was amazing up until we were ready to leave. Our waiter chatted with the table next to him about his dog walking company for at least 20 minutes while we just stared at him waiting for our check. I remember... More

We eat here 2 to 3 times a year and it's always fantastic. There are lots of great places in Saratoga and this is one best. Get the antipasto for 2 and you will not be disappointed. I strongly recommend a reservation as this is a very popular place.

The atmosphere is wonderful, the staff is engaging and responsive, The owner and manager are involved. But the food, I'd go for the food if it was served in a garage on a paper... More

The hostess was at her station and ignored us.. I said "two for dinner please" and she said "we are not open yet" and walked away.. She came back a few minutes... More

Great ambiance, excellent food and impeccable service make this one of my favorite Italian restaurants ever. Our waiter was very patient answering questions about their wine selection and came up with an excellent selection to go with our risotto and penne with artichoke dishes. The servings were large and very nicely prepared. Next time we're in Saratoga Springs, I'm sure... More

Very lively Italian restaurant that serves high end food that does not dis appoint. A tad loud because it was extremely busy but the experience was worth it. Good drinks, nice wine list and priced reasonably.

We tried to get into this restaurant before but it was packed. This time we went early and were successful. The dining room is beautiful and the service was excellent. We had two of the chef specials (stuffed flank steak which was very tasty and a pork shank that literally fell off the bone) and a scrumptious artichoke pasta dish!... More
