I have raved about this place to everyone and can you imagine my disappointment when I brought a good friend there and was served a used bread basket? The humus was not freshly put in the bowl, there was humus all up the sides of the bowl indicating someone else before me dipped their bread in it. When we opened... More

It was our first time. We called for a reservation, about 1 1/2 hours prior. Host said he would call back to see if they could accommodate. Called back within 10 mins and we were on our way. Atmosphere is great. We sat in the four season room, which I found chilly, next time we'll know to request another area.... More

Truthfully, I have been spoiled. Brought up in the hotel & hospitality industry, I have been fortunate to sit at top tables half around the world, both in major cities and off the beaten path. Trying to decide how to find a good restaurant with two of Beverly's foodies was a challenge. Every restaurant was packed on Cabot ST. In... More

The traditional yet improvisational take on Tuscan cuisine, the bold decor of the place, the jazz trios and quintets that frequent the place: it all conspires to make Chianti feel like the type of gem you could stumble across in SoHo back when it was still awesome. It's one of many top-notch restaurants in Beverly, and it absolutely brightens the... More

I went into this restaurant with 3 other people. We were excited to listen to some jazz music and to have some great Italian food. We ordered the buffalo chicken meatballs and the calamari for the appetizer - which came out surprisingly fast. The buffalo chicken meatballs were dry and the way they prepare the calamari is disgusting. It seemed... More

My husband found this when investigating restaurants for our visit to see Gordon Lightfoot at the Cabot Theater.We had a great lamb skewer Kabob, scallops for an appetizer. Wonderful eggplant Parmesan and delicious veal dish for dinner. Homemade delicious and crusty Italian bread with homemade humus was refreshingly different. Drink selection is good, good wine selection. Merlot raspberry sorbet topped... More

We had some great meals with another couple here recently. It was not crowded probably owing to it being another 90 degree day. Inside is pleasant and the meals were filling and beautifully presented. Prices are more than fair and were delivered promptly. The Jazz was enjoyable and not loud so we could converse with our friends. The owners care... More

I live next town from Beverly so I often visit Chianti to hear some great Jazz Musicians. The food is good and you are right up close to the musicians. All around a nice evening out.

My wife and I have recently moved to Beverly from Belmont/Waltham. We've had some great dinging experiences out there. We did some looking online for our favorite types of food and I came across Chianti. After being excited about the menu and live music, I scheduled a reservation for 7pm on Monday the 25th of July, my birthday. Turned out... More
