“Consistently Outstanding”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

My family and I frequent Chiara often. The food and service is outstanding.....not outstanding for the burbs....just outstanding. The food is a treat and the entire staff makes this a warm and inviting environment. Chiara should be recognized as one of the best restaurants in Boston...it just happens to be around the corner from my suburban home! Lucky me.

“Exceeded my expectations for a special family meal!”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

My girls, 20 and 22, were home for the weekend, a rare treat for us. We decided that we wanted to go out for a special meal, and I did some research. My husband and I had been to Chaira once with friends, and I had wanted to return. We could not have been more pleased. The service was impeccable. The food was perfect. I had the beet salad with apples and walnuts. The bone-in pork chop with a lovely chutney. The Apple Streudel with Vanilla Ice Cream. The meal was fantastic. And the waitress did two impressive things to make our evening even better. She took our picture in front of the fireplace (across the restaurant!) and she left the pot of coffee with me when I asked her. Gracious. I give the restaurant an A.

“Eclectic best describes this restaurant”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

Diverse menu, good service but the food was salty for our liking. The first time we walked in, we witnessed what seemed to be a more upscale restaurant which had some customers neatly dressed and others in shorts and sneakers. We got the feeling that the restaurant was trying to be everything to everybody. The staff were very accommodating and pleasant.

Disappointing since it was our second visit.
