There's always a warm welcome when you enter Chianti and a swift passage to your table and water offered. The menu has some classics but also a new take on Italian mod cuisine. We chose the antipasto for two.....beautifully presented -followed by veal and my husband's favourite pasta al oglio -here with prawns. Both excellent served with a properly dressed... More

Fantastic food and wine - Beautiful setting, it's a lovely space. Hutt St has a great vibe. Service from most is outstanding - we encountered a very rude waiter however. Booked inside, was told only outside available. Several empty tables - we suspected they had bookings on them? No one turned up. Almost two hours later we left - however... More

Chianti is top of the list for me in Adelaide and never disappoints. Maria makes this restaurant what it is and combined with fabulous food and wines, you know the day is going to be memorable. Along with two other girls, I lunched on stuffed zucchini flowers, pasta( mine was oxtail) and sweets (mine a mouthwatering ginger ice cream slice)... More

Delicious, devine & damn fine. They even provide specs for those in waning eyesight denial! A truly lovely dining experience shared with friends. Our experience with customer service was faultless.

Maria and her staff are exceptional. I am a regular at this very special restaurant and the food is stunning. Regular changes of menu ensure that there is always something new and delicious to try. I used to go to Chianti for Business but it is great for dining with friends and family too. I love taking my parents for... More

The Italian food & great service cannot be beaten. The staff are professional and knowledgeable. The Wine Sommelier looked after us all night and the waitress was friendly and cheerful. This is why they have been an icon restaurant for 30 years. Go next door to Bar Torino first for a pre-dinner drink or after for a night cap.

I wasn't going to do this as I had this experience in December 2015( for my birthday) but..I just reviewed Parliamentos and I felt compelled.. In the height of summer no matter what you are told ( unless you love heat without cooling)!DONT agree to an outside table. It's just far too unpredictable. Maybe it was too hot , but... More

Went to Chianti for a business lunch. The authentic Italian food is delicious, there is plenty to choose from and the wine list is a good read. The service is very good, perfect for a fast business lunch. Worth a trip, an Adelaide institution, a must visit if you have the time to sit back, shut your eyes and think... More

Enjoyable lunch at Chianti. Service was polite and professional. We both enjoyed our courses. The starter of smoked Octopus was my dish of the day. My wifes was a very close call between the starter of stuffed zucchini flowers or the lovely Lamb main. Abit pricey but would recommend for a special night out or celebration. P and J.
