Went there with my dad passing thru Cleveland. Nice classy place with modern design. Patrick our host was very efficient and our meals where top notch. Gnocchi and duck confit stuffed raviolis we had. Great refined italian with a nice variety of entrees and appetizers. Nice wine selection for all budgets. We had a great experience. Chapeau!

My husband and I did happy hour at Chinato's one night and vowed to return for dinner, which we did prior to a show at Playhouse Square in Cleveland. Definitely need reservations ... we took my mother in law with us and we all had a wonderful experience. The service was amazing even tho the place was packed. The food... More

All staff from the hostess to the busboys to the waiters, looked like they wanted to be elsewhere. The appetizers and mains were good but for the same money (and a more enjoyable dining experience) go across the street to LOLA.

The food had great presentation. I had chicken and potatoes plus tiramisu. All were very good. The wait staff were excellent. Only negative was that I would have gotten the salmon except it wasn't wild.

Outstanding server named Lorenzo! He made the night. First rate service better or equal to service you might receive at a top NYC restaurant. All wait staff should be trained by a Lorenzo type person. Can't say enough about him. The food was fantastic too.

We shared dishes tapas style and doubled the flavor throughout our meal. Our waitstaff was outstanding.... The restaurant is upscale but relaxing and comfortable. In a great location next to our hotel...The Marriott - Residence Inn.

Chinato is one of 5 restaurants by Zack Bruell in the Cleveland area. This one is on 4th Street--restaurant row. The ambiance is pleasant, décor attractive, although it is a little noisy. Probably normal for a restaurant of this size. The service is among the best we've ever encountered--pleasant, attentive, knowledgeable staff. The food, although very good, wasn't great. Nice...

We were in Cleveland recently for the Antique Roadshow, staying at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown and had a taste for good Italian food. The concierge do not hesitate with his recommendation of the Chinato, which is just a short 15 minute walk from the hotel. We had an antipasti dinner, starting with the Salumi plate. For our entrées my wife... More

Same owner as L'Albatross. The atmosphere was relaxed, service was very good, and the food was excellent. Good wine list. A little gem downtown. They even worked out very efficient parking in a busy area. Can't wait to go back.
