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

I was surprised for a small town in upsate NY that such a trendy urban feeling restaurant would exist. We loved this restaurant from the moment we walked in, It was lively, and friendly. The service was fantastic. The food was excellent although a bit too Tuscan for me, however the chef worked with me and I had a dinner... More

My husband, myself and another couple ate dinner here on Friday Sept. 19, 2014. When we walked in the sound level was painfully loud but I thought that was because the entrance abuts the bar, which was full. I was very disappointed to discover that the noise level increased as we were seated in the rear of the restaurant. As... More

Chianti has a chic and warm and inviting ambiance. It's a hot spot, so it can be loud. Bar is very popular to hang out and it's cool with a backlit stone counter. Menu is classic Italian. Fresh bread with olive oil & balsamic a great start. The carpaccio with Gorgonzola fondue was exceptional and the spinach salad with liqueur... More
