I'm pretty sure Chianti is now gone and Backdrop is in its place. Last time I ate there it was pretty marginal quality. Backdrop, on the other hand, is great.

My wife loved the veal with white wine and mushroom sauce. She also loved her salad that had artichokes and baslamic vinegar with lettuce. My grilled chicken was tender and very tasty. My caesar salad was awesome.

Tucked away on a side street corner, the Chianti doesn't look like a restaurant but it is smartly decorated and unassuming. The staff are attentive but not in your face. The ingredients they use are of good quality - mozzarella cheese, tomato, fresh basil, balsamic...More

I went with a group of my girlfriends for a girls night out. I had the mushroom Risotto which was sublime. Can't compare to other rissoto I had here in Ottawa because this Risotto was simply the best. Al dente, creamy, with a hint of...More
