Have not been here for several years. Their food is good. Really liked that on several dishes you could order a smaller portion. I was shocked when we walked in how dirty the rug was and had a old smell. They need to invest in making it look better and cleaner.

I think this is far a good place to go. Food is amazing. The waitress was very friendly. However I feel this is an expensive place to go, and the quantity is very stingy

The food was American Italian. Seating was nice and the staff were friendly. The food was not bad but it seemed just ok. There was no wow factor. So for a quick bite sure. Special occasion probably not.

A few words needed: Cajun Chicken Tortellini. I travel almost an hour to eat here because their tortellini is so dang delicious. Also, that garlic dipping sauce with the breadsticks is addicting. Every time we come here, I look forward to the flavorful, delicious pasta dishes! I also love how they have half portions for when you're not feelin' too... More

Chianti's was terrific! A cozy little spot in downtown Geneva. The service was excellent and the food the same. I had the Wednesday night special - spaghetti and meatballs for $6.60 which included a cup of soup. After adding a house wine, my tab came to $13. A great value and the food was tasty as well. I'll be back!

Whenever we are in the area we try to stop in at Chiantis Italian restaurant. The food is always consistently good and the staff is excellent. The sitting area can sometimes get a bit crowded, but it just proves how popular this place is!

We enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Chianti in Geneva. Love the small house turned into restaurant. Different rooms, cozy but comfortable. Service was friendly but a bit slow. Overall, a comfortable cozy romantic place on 3rd st in Geneva, with excellent italian food

I had the sausage and peppers...very good. Wife was disappointed with fettuccini Alfredo. Son was disappointed with chicken Parmesan. Nice atmosphere, decent service. Probably won't go back.

My favorite restaurant in Geneva! Cheese mushrooms are great, as are all items on the menu! This is a wonderful, family owned restaurant with great service & food. I even held a bridal shower here & it was fabulous!!
