There is certainly no shortage of great Italian restaurants in Sarasota/Bradenton. Unfortunately, this was not one of them. To begin with, the tables are tiny so you sit on top of each other. Service, though friendly, was very slow. The salad was good to begin with and then it went downhill. I had the Chicken Francaise which I've had many... More

I have been dining at Chianti's on a monthly basis ever since it opened. The food, wait staff and customer service have always been outstanding, that is until last Friday night. My friend and I sat at the bar enjoying a cocktail for 30 minutes. We then checked in for our 6:00pm reservation. The lady at the front desk insisted... More

We went with friends who liked it. We agreed that the food was very good; service excellent..but on a Saturday evening the noise level was terrible. Conversation was almost impossible without shouting. We had arrived at about 7:30; the place was packed. By the end of our meal, about 8:45, many diners had left and it was much quieter. We... More

Each of our dinners, 4 different entrees, were very good. Food was fresh and hot. Restaurant staff were very courteous and accommodating but the restaurant itself was loud.

This is the first time we've been here in a couple of years - since Angelo, who used to run the front end, left to open his own place. Food was quite good - I liked my eggplant parmigiana and hubby liked his veal. Both were served with al dente rigatoni in a well-made marinara sauce. Service was a lot... More

I had a great salad and wonderful fish. I enjoyed the ambient and the meal. The waitress was great. Though it is a nice size, the owner gives the "family touch" which adds to the enjoyment of eating out.
