We had 10 people in our group on Friday May 30th. We were seated in the room with the bar.
Had such a great time. Angelo was terrific!! We were impressed with his attention to detail and his helpfulness in explaining different dishes. We ordered family style which was great because we could sample so many different items. Everything ran smoothly. If you are not in a rush this was a great time to enjoy the company of friends. We will definitely return. Grazie Angelo!

The wine list is good, the Italian food is very good and the service is great. We had a table to the west end = it is quiet there. The manager ios particularly nice to diners.

After many recommendations we decided to give this restaurant a try. We were not disappointed.Food was average, the service was good and the place attractive and clean. Will we go back? probably not because in Sarasota we have a lot of superb Italian Restaurants.

Our 4-24-14 Chianti dining visit was prompted by the restaurant's local ad. General Manager Angelo's enthusiastic greeting for my wife & I as he seated us -- and provided menus & a listing of the Thursday evening specials, set the tone for a very enjoyable first dining experience at the Clark Rd. eatery. We were quickly offered water & table settings and very soon after that our delightful waitress Patricia arrived to take our drink order and to answer a couple of questions about the menu offerings. She next brought some very warm crusty bread accompanied by a plate of tasty dipping oil. We relaxed with my house Cabernet Sauvignon & my wife's Kir Prosecco while dipping the bread in advance of our entree arrivals. Choosing the 'Seafood Ravioli' evening special was an excellent & delicious choice for my wife and I equally enjoyed the flavorful Pappaerdelle con Gamberie Capesante (prawns & sea scallops) entree served with wide noodles. I might have enjoyed a bit more of each crustacean added to the entree. A dessert to share was chosen (with insight provided by Patricia) and the house special Bread Pudding -- made with a croissant as the base, was terrific. Fresh, hot coffee was promptly brought to accompany the 'sweet' end to a most enjoyable dining experience at Chianti. The first of more to come, we've decided.
