Nice downtown eatery

Delicious food. Friendly service. Lovely view. I'd love to see the menu expanded just a bit, but that's a personal choice. As it stands, it is a great place for dinner, either casual or special occasion.

Had dinner on a Saturday evening @ 6. Excellent service, our waiter was very knowledgeable with wine suggestions and answering our questions about the items on the menu. Delicious bread with olive oil for dipping comes before dinner. We had sea scallops with pisarei and the special which was a 10oz rib eye. Both our dinners were cooked to perfection!... More

Thier Happy Hour has a good wine selection plus deals on appetizers at the bar. The gnocchi is great, but so is the sausage pizza. The bartenders are very friendly, too, especially Annie. We'll definitely go back when we're in town.

We arrived at 8pm to a packed house on a Monday night. This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The grilled octopus entrée was spot on and the wines by the glass were well priced. Two appetizers, a half gnocchi and my entrée with two generous glasses of Barbaresco and Malbec were $90 + tip!

Ate dinner there before a Cavs game, Restaurant was busy but we had a reservation. Waiter asked if we were going to the game to insure we wouldn't be late. Many of the items on the menu have a different twist. Had to ask questions about various dishes to find out how they were made. We both had a Tuscan... More

Stopped to eat here before a Cavs game. The food was awesome and was prepared quickly. I had the braised beef and was not disappointed. Highly recommended!

made a 6:15 reservation in a Saturday night and our table was ready and waiting, along with warm bread and terrific service. Not rushed, but wine arrived quickly and my 1/2 order of linguini with scallops was perfect before wandering across the street to watch Lebron. My wife had the eggplant, guests had salmon and 1/2 order of ship pasta,... More

I am astounded by the number of restaurant choices in downtown Cleveland and this one is a great choice if you are a foodie. I started off with an incredible grilled vegetable salad with farro (grain) and topped with a white balsamic vinaigrette (scrumptious). The main course was a vegan eggplant with a porcini tomato sauce. It was very well... More

I stopped by the restaurant 2 weeks ago by accident when attending an international training event held at the Quicken arena. It was within walking distance. The staff was very friendly. I ordered a potato and cauliflower pizza that was delish. Not the combination you would try? . Hey expand your horizonsLOL. My ginger ale with lemon and lime was... More

Chinato is run by Zack Bruell, who offers a faithful Italian menu - way beyond the average tepid quasi-Italian menus that dominate the American landscape. This establishment offers true Italian dishes prepared with authentic Italian spices and presentation. My experience here was as part of a business outing, so we shared a number of appetizer dishes and I was able... More
