Found this little treasure last night! I was looking for an Italian restaurant and came across Il Chianti…literally down the street from my home! It doesn’t look like much from the outside but walk in and wow! You’re greeted by some of the friendliest staff. They all seemed genuinely happy to be working there. The ambiance is refreshing; nice music, lighting is just right and the setting is just so….comfortable! You never want for anything….but you do not feel intruded upon. I loved reading about the History and the Chef on the menu. 😊 We started with some of the best bread I’ve ever had! Soft and warm and full of flavor for dipping! We then went with the grilled calamari. Out of this world delicious! I’ve never had calamari grilled before and it was the bomb! They cover it in this sauce that you simply must try. We had Chicken Marsala and the Carbonara Della Nonna (at the recommendation of our waiter). Great choice! The pasta was so fresh and sauces were perfect. There was so much food we had plenty to take home. We honestly would have loved dessert, but just couldn’t eat anymore. Prices were moderate and worth every penny! We are already planning our next visit! Bottom line? You simply must visit!
Awesome local Italian joint. Came at the recommendation of a waiter friend who works there and we weren't disappointed. Everything was insanely fresh and tasted wonderful. Leave room for the brulee cheesecake! Be warned it's very rich so trust me when I say split a single serving with your partner. If you're in the market for Italian that isn't Olive Garden you won't go wrong with Il Chianti! I'll definitely be going back.
Out of this world!!!! So good! The food is ridiculous. Cesar was our waiter and he was awesome. The owner and head Chef came and sat at our table to talk for over a half hour! Great conversation and great food! I’ll be back next time I’m in town.
We are from out of state and needed a place to celebrate after our daughters wedding. The staff delivered and then some. Fantastic staff. Delicious food! Wish we lived closer because this would be our go to restaurant. Thank you for making an memorable wedding dinner! ❤
I never thought Italian food served in a strip mall cooked by a Filipino chef could be as good as this. Super surprised by the result high marks all round. The wait staff was superb and had excellent recommendations. The chef did a great job making delicious cuisine and the portions were sizable to boot. Wine was reasonably priced too. I'd go back in a heartbeat next time I'm in the area. If the Italian food was this good I can only imagine the result if they opened a Filipino food place next door. Now that would make a great 2 night out combo! If you're in the area and craving Italian or even if not stop in here you won't regret it!
