Used to love to go to Chianti when I first moved to the north shore 11 years ago. The food was fresh and delicious, the service was impeccable and even though the decor and mismatched (sometimes chipped) china could have used a little brightening, it did not take away from the total experience.
Now I have been back three times to eat since the Jazzy bar side has been added and the service is no longer even good, the food is okay and because of these things I am aggravated by even the china. Maybe the owner is concentrating on the music crowd now and not so much the dining experience. I have always loved the "Zucchilini" (ribbons of zucchini pretending to be pasta) but this last time, my Zuke was just swimming in the gorgonzola sauce I chose. And where were the pears and walnuts that typically appear with this sauce? My friend ordered the tomato sauce on her Zuke and hers was barley visible in her dish due to the HUGE pool of sauce. The service leaves tons to be desired, not to mention the fact that there were at any given time 3 - 4 people behind the bar. We appeared @ apx 6:00 PM; no one else there. Then the "regulars" started to arrive and we were soon forgotten. I'm sorry to say, I will not return for food again. I miss the old Chianti.
