Went for a light evening meal. Started with warm olives in oil & garlic with blue cheese. They were cold and the oil had a reddish hue. They surrounded a piece of blue cheese in the middle of a white dinner plate. Then came the worst green salad I have ever tasted. The lettuce was bitter and the dressing was... More

When I lived in Edmonton, we used to go to the other location in Clareview almost weekly. We also went to this location.The food and service were always excellent. When we moved out of the city, we always made a point of eating at this restaurant. On this visit, I was less than impressed. The pasta was overdone, the sauce... More

We visited this restaurant last night with a huge group and they took excellent care of everyone. The food was amazing. The staff was beyond amazing. The wine selection was great. The overall atmosphere was awesome. The only thing that ruined the visit, unrelated to the restaurant and out of their control was a right wing radical holding up a... More

I was not impressed with the food at all. I was there for my birthday. They had missed the mark with there gluten free food. I can make it better than they did. My family also complained about their meals too. Will not be returning.

If you like good pasta, and we do, this was a great lunch choice. We were a family group with cross sections of ages and food interests. Fresh warm buns with butter, followed by crispy salads with light and poignant dressings and the main event: Pasta. We all had different selections and we "shared" which was the most fun. I... More

We went their for the pasta evening. All pasta was 10$/plate. The food was ok but not much. The staff was very pleasant and fast. The restaurant need little restoration.

Chianti is definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. Went out for a nice enjoyable meal, ordered the penne Pollo & calamari to start. The calamari was the best I've ever had and the order was so big I couldn't finish my entrée. The service was great and the ambience was delightful, I'll definitely be back.

I went with a friend for dinner. I ordered the Gnocchi with a pesto cream sauce. It was to die for. Melt in your mouth gnocchi, the kind you dream of! Very authentic Italian cuisine. My friend had salmon in a dill sauce, which was the special. It came with veggies and pasta, also excellent! We each had a glass... More

We had a wonderfully friendly reception. Although we expected the place to have pizza for the children, in the end we were glad it didn't. We each had a pasta dish, that was really good. Home-made pasta, great taste. I would recommend this 100 times over.

Chose based on good reviews this restaurant was a great location to catch-up with an old friend. The ambient noise was just right for conversation. Pastas were very good, not overloaded with garlic as many other places do. Dessert was confusing as the kitchen produced items different than written on the menu. All in all I would recommend this place... More
