My husband & I were in Cleveland for a football game and wanted to give Chinato a try. Even tho we had an early reservation & there were few customers, our waitress was preoccupied, missed bringing a drink, didn't replace place settings, & was just not attentive. I liked the burratta & caponata antipasti but my husband didn't care for... More

We ate outside during the Gay Games, and loved our experience. There were several vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, all of them explained extensively by our very nice server. The polenta was rich and creamy. The pasta came with a light cream sauce that showed off some delicious cauliflower. The chocolate cake for dessert was rich, but a... More

Eclectic? I don't know. But there isn't anything traditional Italian on the menu at all. Everything is beef tongue, squid, clam, whatever. Looked like all the beautiful people there ordering very unique dishes. I had seafood spaghetti and it was very fishy - maybe it's supposed to be. I recommend you look at the menu before going in. And NOISEY!... More

As an out of towner visiting family we choose to dine here and I was pleasantly surprised. The service was most accommodating and the food delicious. I had the linguini and the salads were of fabulous fresh variety. The bartender prepared our cocktails perfectly.

We walked into Chinato on a Wednesday evening without a reservation and found there to be a table right away. The atmosphere upon entering was very nice, but the hostess at the front was down right aloof and rude as if she could care less if we were there or not. It was an immediate turn off. Our waitress, Lisa... More

We stopped into Chinato for lunch while on a business trip to Cleveland. We like Italian and Chinato delivered! We shared a nice pasta dish and were thoroughly impressed. So much so, that the next evening we went back to Chinato with our friends. Again, top-notch Italian food along with attentive service.

The food and service here are wonderful, but if you're not a foodie then take a look at the menu before you leave home so you know what you're looking at.

I've always been a fan of ZB and welcomed Chinato after being a Parallax junkie for so long, and then when L'Albatross came into my neighborhood in Univ Circle that place was great right from the start. Which brings me to Chinato. Its' been very inconsistent last four trips there. My guest had skate wing and nearly choked on the... More
