I had fettucini Alfredo. Very Very good and a huge portion. We also had chicken pesto and it too was very good we had a
Large pizza. Ingredients were very good and tasty but some of
The crust was burnt and most of it was
Doughy. The bread stick served were very very good.

“Great little Italian Joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Casual lunch and dinner Italian restaurant where they know your name if you are a regular....

Great sandwiches (subs) and pizza and the Italian dishes are equally as good.

Family and I often pop in for a great lunch - where they regularly have combo meals of subs, fries and drinks reasonably priced.

The cheesesteak supreme is loaded with hot peppers, mushrooms, and onions and should not be missed.

Check it out if you are in the area....you will soon be a regular too!

“VERY GOOD ITALIAN FOOD IN RICHMOND”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Being a native Italian I tend to get very critical when I am at an Italian restaurant. In no way can any restaurant recreate that home cooking atmosphere that most Italians are accustomed to. Chianti is a very clean place and it doesn’t smell of garlic as some establishments do. The service I thought was great and not intrusive. The quality to price ratio I thought was good. My son and I both got a fried calamari appetizer and pasta entrees. The calamari were plentiful tasty and not greasy and rubbery. My fettuccine and scallops were excellent. It had plenty of fish and the tomato based sauce was not overpowering or watery. The same was true for my son's spaghetti with shrimps. The restaurant is located about 10 to 15 minutes from downtown but it is worth a trip.

“Excellent Italian Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Everything I've tried is good there, sandwiches, pasta or pizza. The prices are reasonable and they have a good lunch special.

“Exceptional food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Some of the best Italian food we have had in Richmond. The calzone melted in your mouth. Reasonably priced. Service was a little spotty but probably because the restaurant was so busy.
