Tasty, comfort Italian food

We have eaten here a few times and it is consistently good. The stuffed shells are my favorite and I would highly recommend them. Lasagne was also a generous portion and delicious.

I have eaten at Chianti's many times, both lunch and dinner. Frank is an excellent chef and greets his customers making them feel very welcome. Lunch sub specials are delicious and very reasonable. Great bread! Their pizzas are the best in Richmond in my opinion. If you want pizza for lunch, they offer a 9" personal pizza for $4. $1... More

My wife and I dine here regularly and normally buy the Bonnie Salad and get half a sub. We have always been satisfied. We thought we would try Chianti's for a more formal meal on Friday, 3/6/2015. We were seated quickly by a young lad who appeared to be 12 or 13. The waiter arrived at our table at 6:08... More

We never had so much Salt in our food. We tried the chicken piñata , salmon , penne with tomato sauce, eggplant , fry's ... Keep your money for better places (which is any-other place). Don't know how this place is open. One star is too much.

Wonderful pizza. Double anchovies and excellent martinis. Very good place for families with children and folks with allergies.

My wife and I eat here fairly regularly and enjoy the food and staff. This place has had the lowest turnover of any restaurant I am familiar with- Same staff for as long as I can remember-10+ years. Food is good and consistent.

My friend and I chose this place based on the reviews and i was disappointed. The service was slow. My waitress responded ok to everything, no conversation. The wine list by the glass was a joke. The food was mediocre. Honestly I've had better Italian food at a chain restaurant. Which makes me sad because i always prefer family run... More

Love it...my favorite! The staff makes us feel like regulars and are very friendly. Very friendly servers who are always willing to offer advice on dinner selections. I have to admit that I almost always order the veal marsala, but my husband has had almost everything else on the menu (and enjoyed it). Always lots of people picking up pizza... More

I'm checking a 4 out of 5 because of the things I like at Chianti. There are some good values on the menu, but some items seem bizarrely high to me. I'm just not going to pay $20 for a chicken entree at a neighborhood restaurant. On the other hand, there's a pasta special on the menu for about $13... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the last 7 to 8 years. I have one favorite sandwich but I have tried other entrees occasionally. Their portobello mushroom sub is one of my favorite sandwiches in Richmond. The restaurant is small and sometimes understaffed if the crowd size swells.
