“Great Food Great Service”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My family went for lunch at Chianti. With 2 young children, I am always pleased when were seated with crayons and paper for the kids. Our child then proceed to spill the water all over the table in which they were quick to clean up and supply the young ones with more paper. We shared a double sized salad and it was very tasted. My husband and I both believed our meals were delicious and filling and both took some home to enjoy later. The kids polished off there kid size meal. Service was prompt and friendly.

“Large portions, quality doesn't seem to be there”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

I find that the pasta is overloaded and it discounts the taste of the other ingredients and herbs. It's a little bit of a cattle farm, I felt rushed in my meal and the serving staff seem to be rushing around with little time to focus on service (not their fault perhaps). I haven't been blown away by a meal here yet unfortunately.

First time there and we really enjoyed the meal. We waited for quite while for table and service so next time I might make a reservation!

“Overpriced, boring food”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The food was boring and overpriced, and the service was TERRIBLE. I have been to the Whyte Ave location twice and I will never go back.
