My $42 bass was raw and even cold in some places! Iced tea for wife never showed up on our table, but was on the receipt. My son's fettuccini Alfredo was as bland and toasted ouful. Even the espressos were in serious jeaprody. This restaurant should do humanity a favor and close its door ASAP!

Holidays these days are difficult. So few restaurants are open. We tried Chianto Reserve, and made a reservation. When we arrived the manager was about to show us a table (outside)(the temperature was about 45) I refused (although we had a definite reservation)he suggested the bar area (with high stools) I told him my partner was disabled and could not...

We were there from out of town to have dinner and see the Christmas lights at night in Pleasanton. My wife and I were stuck in a dark corner. The server took our order, served our dinner and we never saw him during the meal. I stacked our plates into one pile on our table after dinner, which is something... More

We were visiting my daughter & son-in-law during the Thanksgiving Holiday. They hadn't try Chianti & wanted to this time. The food was just so so. I was So Disappointed in the Bolognese Sauce. It tasted like Rago "doctored up" with a slight sugary undertaste. The ravioli wasn't done like the "pillows" I am used to at other Italian eateries.... More

I met a friend here for dinner. She recommended the restaurant because it was one of her favorite places to eat. I understand why. We got the gnocchi with a red sauce. It was absolutely delicious. The service was wonderful and the owner gave all of his guests a hug for coming in They have indoor and outdoor seating. I... More

My husband and I both had pasta dishes for entrees: I had the gnocchi in tomato cream sauce with shrimp and he had spaghetti carbonara. They were delicious, albeit blazing hot when they came to the table (I burned my tongue). The bread and herbed oil/water?/vinegar mixture that preceded the meal was odd, as if it didn't know quite what... More

We eat lunch downtown every other week & since the new ownership at Chianti, things have MUCH improved! Michelangelo is very Italian, very polite & remembered where we sat & after the first time we visited. If you're in a rush, go somewhere else. That's now how the real Italians do it. Relax, enjoy & savor the food. He will... More

Our family (nine) met here for lunch as it was midway for all of us to travel. The restaurant is small, reservations were essential and easy to make. Staff was helpful from start to finish. The food ranged from very good to excellent. There was a nice variety on the menu and the waiter was very helpful when we were... More

Service was very attentive as we were table 4 of 4 tables occupied. We didn't order traditional Italian dishes which may account for our low ratings of the food. We ordered the Alaskan salmon and the New York strip, both were bland. I excused with the reasoning that we should have ordered Italian dishes which is what they seem to... More
