“Average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

We visited Chianti's on Friday, have been there a few times before. The food is fair, nice size portions, but the quality is average. For example, Swordfish was overcooked, with no flavor. Chicken Francese portion was very large- 3 pieces of chicken, but very thick- cutlets needed to be pounded out, -sauce was pretty good. Same deal with the veal cutlets- too thick, but sauce was fair. Smelts were good, but a very small portion. The waitstaff was very friendly and apologetic for the extremely slow service from the kitchen. The location is great, but place needs some remodeling. The upside- they have Campari- which is always a plus in an Italian restaurant.

Our family LOVES this place.
The staff is super friendly and they are the same people all the time. They start to remember you when you walk in.
The food is so good and they give you so much of it, you even have leftovers!!

“Mama Mia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Great Italian food, wonderful atmosphere, and warm friendly people. Their veal parm is probably the best in RI (although I am still actively searching for "the best") The meal never fails to be delightful and the view from the sun room seats looking out to the gardens is so tranquil and enjoyable. A wonderful Saturday night evening meal

“Surprisingly awesome! This place has A+ Italian food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011 via mobile

Chiantis is in definite need for a remodel. It bodes the 70's wood panel look and has a banquet hall feel. That aside this place was outstanding. I had the chicken sorrentino and it was a more than generous serving and the taste of the pasta gravy was outstanding. All 4 of us at dinner enjoyed our meals and were already looking forward to our next meal while eating the plates in front of us. Our waitress was excellent. Even though we floated in 1.5 before closing she was warm and her attitude and personality complimented the fare being served to us perfectly. I felt completely satisfied after this meal and I will be going back soon. Give this place a try I promise u won't be dissapointed

“Good, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

We decided to have dinner here recently as it is off the main road and not as crowded as some of the other East Greenwich restaurants. Our server, Diann, was very personable and did a great job. The food, however was just ok. The calamari flavor was nice, however the actual rings were very doughy and unappealing. The chicken leonel was ok, but not worth the price charged. Overall the experience was ok, though a little overpriced.
