Chianti is our favourite restaurant to go have a wholesome Italian meal accompanied by good house wine and ending with one of their signature desserts. To go with the dessert you may pick your favourite coffee from their gourmet coffee selection. The dining area is spacious and there are separate areas to give you privacy if you are part of...

Chianti Was THE Italian place to go for us for many years...now, it's not good. The food was cold, inconsistent, took forever to get served and the waiters were ambivalent to our complaints. Not going back.

After eating at Chianti's once, I am certain I'll be coming back. I came on a work lunch and it was wonderful. Quick service at lunch is always appreciated and that is what we got. The menu was amazing - I wanted to try one of everything. The complementary bread with oil & vinegar was a nice touch that I... More

My kids ask to eat here all the time. $6.50 for a kids meal is a pretty good price. They always get the tortellini alfredo and are getting used to the free bread with oil and vinegar dip. Eat here Sunday - Tuesday and it's cheaper. That's always when we go.

Girls out for lunch and as it was nice and sunny had it on their patio under the gazebo. All 5 of us were delighted with our food and service was excellent. Along with their regular menu, they had several different choices for their lunch specials at only $8.99. I decided to have their Italian Club which was good but... More

We love Chianti's for reasonably priced pasta and Italian food. Not the fanciest place, not your 5-star dining, but we've always had great food and service. For the price you pay, the food is really great! This is definitely one of our favorite low-key date night or lunch date places.

The food here was good, and about what was expected for a $15-ish pasta meal. It was good, not great. Kids meals were $6.50 ... Pastas or chicken fingers came with drink and good quality icecream. The Peach Belini was on special and was really good. The coffee at the end of the meal was very good. The service, or... More

The last reviewer complained the chicken was a breaded cutlet- well, the menu clearly states that. Read the menu. Being going here for years. Yes, it's not a high-end eatery, but you get great-tasting Italian for absolutely great prices. You want fancy, go spend big $$$ elsewhere. These guys never disappoint - good portion sizes and well-flavoured dishes. I had... More

It was Friday evening, and did not have anything plan; so decided to stroll from Arbour Lake to Crowfoot and came upon Chiati Cafe and decided to walk in. It was not that full, so we were able to walk in. Was nicely seated by our server and had some cool beverage (peach belini) that was nicely prepared. We had... More

This was one of the worse meals I have ever had. The vegetables were hardly cooked, the chicken breast was actually a breaded chicken cutlet and the whole dish was way too salty. They did remove the cost of my meal from the bill which was good but the waitress didn't seem to care that I had complained. The lasagna,... More
