Nice atmosphere a little farther Down than Main Street but it was worth the walk and it was a real nice place. The beat salad was light and refreshing and the chicken piccata was good but my husband had the ossou bocco which was better the best part was the dessert we ordered it was donuts with vanilla ice cream and espresso coffee it was a great meal overall and didnt feel so heavy. Another favorite is my water was constantly refilled which I love because I hate chasing down someone for a beverage

4 star Italian. We ordered Chicken Primaverra, Short-Rib Osso Bucco, and the Daily Specia (a scallops appetizer). The Osso Bucco was too oily, but had a good taste. The Chicken Primavera was VERY cheesy. The scallops were very good.

The restaurant also offers complimentary cake-bread (with a garlic oil and oregano dip) and also a prosecco cocktail at the start of the meal (to be used as a palate cleanser).

This is similar in quality to the Grand Hotel's 5-course dinner.

Very good food. We ate dinner here three times and each of our meals was well prepared.

The whitefish with asparagus risotto and the pork tenderloin were our favorites.

Creme brulee with fruit was a great dessert. Prices are comparable with the other better restaurants on the island except that the service was more attentive and as a bonus there was
a pianist playing enjoyable music that heightened the dining experience.

Our first dinner was the best as the service was exceptional and the chef came out from the kitchen to inquire whether our meal was satisfactory and the pianist came over to introduce herself. I would also note that the dining area was spacious and inviting and there was plenty of room between tables

The only slight negative is that the Mission Point Resort is a little further out from the main street
restaurants similar to the Grand Hotel but it gives you the opportunity to walk off your dinner.
Wonderful dining!

We had a package through the Mission Point Resort that included one dinner and two breakfasts at Chianti. We liked the dinner much better than the breakfast buffet.

The breakfast buffet included the usual assortment of cold items, such as bagels, toast, pastries, and fresh fruit, and hot items like sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs and potatoes. They had made-to-order omelette station. One morning they offered biscuits and gravy and the other morning they had pancakes. The food was pretty good, although the selection was a little odd. One morning, for example, they only had blueberry bagels. We also found it a bit odd that they didn't have something in the "needs syrup" category (pancakes/waffles/french toast) each day. We felt like it was a little expensive for the quality of food. It was just an average hotel hot breakfast buffet. If you want the convenience of eating at the hotel, it's fine. But in the future we would probably choose to head into town find something else for breakfast.

While we found the breakfast to be only average, the dinner was excellent. The food was excellent. I had the steak pizzaiolo and my wife had the whitefish, and we were both impressed. Dinner is a little expensive, but is in line with the prices on the dinner menus elsewhere on the island.

We enjoyed eating at Chianti and found the service to be good during each of our visits. However, if we were paying for the meals ourselves, we would probably choose to have breakfast somewhere else, but we would gladly come back for dinner.
