“Great food, by the sea”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Our discovery of Chianti's Pizzeria last night, at Trinity Beach was a very pleasant surprise.
The atmosphere was comfortable, cozy and down to earth, giving me the feeling that I was visiting someone's home. To add to the charm the whole front of the building was "open air", enabling us to fully enjoy the nearby beach and ocean.
I ordered the King Prawn Pizza- generous portions of prawns and Mozzarella cheese with a wonderful spicy chilli sauce on a crisp, flavourful crust. Being from Chicago I don't take pizza lightly- this one ranked amongst my favorites!
My wife and daughter shared an order of Spinach and Feta Ravioli (which they too enjoyed very much) and my son loved his Meat Lover's Pizza. The Pizzas were so large that we were able to take some home, a rare event indeed when my teenage son dines with us!
Pricier than a franchise place, which it should be- a far better dining experience! A serious and accomplished chef, and attractive ladies serving some of the best food of it's kind, right on the coast. What could be better?
We'll be back!

“An authentic Italian trattoria”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The environment takes one back to italy with its red/white check tableclothes and plants and their is a real family feel. We chose from the special menu and my wife enjoyed slow cooked beef cheeks whilst I had pork saltimbocca. The cooking and presentation were excellent and the flavours marvellous. Accompanied by some Italian Chianti it was difficult to imagine what more one could want! The serves were generous and the cost on the same level as other quality restaurants in the area. Highly recommended and not to be missed.

“Garlic Prawn Hot Pot”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Excellent place to eat. Paul and his staff gave a warm friendly welcome to their restaurant. The food was wonderful and we can recommend the Garlic Prawn Hot Pot. We ate there three nights in a row, trying lots of dishes on the menu. The price was excellent value for money, the service was efficient and friendly. There were lots of laughs and exchanges with the staff and other tables. A real Italian family feel to this Pizzeria. We will be back.

“Great pizza base!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

The pizzas were great. The base was superb, very light, crisp and delicious. The toppings were good too. Perfect takeaway dinner for the beach.

“Great food and great service”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We visited this little gem of a restaurant twice during our visit to Trinity Beach. The food was excellent and very obviously cooked by a chef with Italian blood. Portions were big and the prices was some of the best we experienced in our 3 week visit of Oz. our waitress both times was brilliant and we had a few laughs with her. So don't listen to the bad reviews and give Chianttis a chance. With full tables every night we were there shows that it was the place to go.
