Chianti Cucina - Novato
Wonderful Valentines Dinner
Chianti Cucina never disappoints at a reasonable price. It is our go-to place for date night.
We had the tomato lobster soup which was outstanding and something I’ve never tried before. The seafood risotto was loaded with shrimp, clams, and scallops in light seafood cream sauce matched perfect with the Arborio rice. Great service and reasonably priced. We had a wonderful evening
Cucina is always a reliable place when you want italian/European foods. Dishes are well made, nicely presented and service is friendly and prompt.
The food and service was outstanding! We will be back soon!
Waitress forgot our salad. Then won’ted to bring it after dinner and put it in a box to take home. We just told her take it off our bill
Ne er disappointed at this restaurant. Excellent, fresh food...homemade noodles and sauce. Great service....a neighborhood gem.
Great to be back for dinner!
Good, fresh, well prepared authentic Italian food.
Date night with my wife! Amazing!!
Delicious!!! As always.
As a regular patron over the years, I am usually quite satisfied with everything on the menu, however, my recent experience was disappointing. I ordered the ribeye steak and got maybe two bites of it. The rest of the steak was mostly gristle or fat. Not what I would expect of this restaurant. I would not recommend the steak to anyone. Service was stellar as usual. Friendly and courteous staff.
As always, everything was great- food and staff. Some of the best food in town.
Food was delicious
Restaurant was nice and cozy. They were closing little earlier then their actual time because of covid 19 may be that’s why it felt like they were hurrying everything. Food was good
A truly exceptional meal. The Caesar salad is delicately flavored and well balanced. I had the salmon special with a lemon wine cream sauce and capers. The salmon was perfect with a lovely flavorful crisp crust. The cheese polenta is amazing! The chicken piccata is the best I've had in years! All of the dishes being served to neighboring tables looked tasty and were clearly well received. I'd go back every night if I could!!!
The food was superb and the service was outstanding.
Love this restaurant- go at least once a month😋 The food is delicious always!
Great place and great food.
This is by far the best restaurant in Novato. We moved to this area about a year and a half ago and haven't found much in the way of local eateries that we want to have dinner at. We have now found it! It felt like we were back in NYC in Little Italy!
We started with carpaccio, which was delicious. Next coming to our table was veal saltimbocca (one of my favorites) and linguini with clams (a favorite of my husband). Both were beyond what we hoped for! My veal was accompanied by polenta, creamy and heavenly, and sauteed veggies that were still crisp and done perfectly. We would have thought we were back in Little Italy, except the food was served by a lovely young woman instead of "thrown" at us by brusque Italian men. Our dessert was a ricotta/pistachio pie that was delicious and lovely to look at. The strawberries and blueberries that garnished it were the best we've had in a long time. There was attention to every detail!
We're thrilled to have discovered Chianti Cucina and can't wait to go back!
By far the BEST restaurant in Marin County. I have been here over 20 times. Never have I been disappointed.
The owners are super nice and personable.
The Risotto is delicious!!
Pasta and Pizzas are excellent.🍕🍝
No problem with the parking as there’s always tons of room.
Make sure you make a reservation as it gets very popular.
Don’t miss out on this gem!!!😎
All the waitresses were awesome as well as the back waiters. Chicken farm was fabulous!
The dining room this evening was pretty busy and a bit challenging to hear my table mate, but it also felt very cozy and friendly. Service was fast and efficient. We each enjoyed our food - cannelloni and linguini alle vongole - and our wine selections as well. LOVE the fireplace!
A GREAT local restaurant! Happy to have it in Novato.
Arrived promptly, asked to taste a wine and was brought a serving so small I called it a sniff. The waitress then proceeded to make us feel pressured to order, then eat, then leave. Food was reasonable but the restaurant is cutting corners.
I won't be back.
As usual loved the food and service. Thank you Chianti!
Food is always delicious ! Love this place. Only request is that the bread be served with softened butter. It comes hard and difficult to spread
Valentines dinner. Exceptional service and food quality.
Always delicious. Love their chicken Parmesan
Hi, we have been to your restaurant a number of times...have nothing but praise for the waitresses and food.
We love this restaurant. Great wine list and great food and friendly and efficient staff. Always a treat.
We arrived at 5:30 to a near empty restaurant and were shown to the worst table in the place. We politely requested a different table and after a much too long consultation with the host, were told that, no, we will not seat you in one of the twenty empty tables. If we hadn't been with our 79 year-old mother, we would have left. As we predicted, at least one of the decent tables stayed empty throughout our two hour meal. Restaurants are more about hospitality than food. The staff at this restaurant needs to be better trained in customer service.
We haven’t been to Chianti Cucina in several years. We were pleasantly surprised!!!
Ambiance was great, service warm, welcoming and attentive. Food top notch- even the vegetables were spectacular.
Will certainly return often!!!
We have a lot of dietary restrictions and chianti was so accommodating. Good food, good atmosphere, and good wine made for a wonderful evening!
The food here is consistently delicious. We go here often.
We went for the first time to this restaurant in December and the steak was awesome. So...we had to go back. Went on a Tuesday night and I was surprised that eventually it filled up. Two of us had the NY steak and it was very good! Plus, the potatoes were yummy. Renee, our server, was very personable and attentive. If I had to give it one lower mark, it was that our food seemed to take a long time to get us after we'd ordered. Other than that, it was a delightful dining experience!
A very nice neighborhood spot. Table for 7 and everyone loved their food. Generous portions, great taste, friendly and attentive service.
Wonderful food and service. Just a lit too loud for my liking
Chianti Cucina is, most definitely, our go to place for dinner. When we get our favorite table...which of course I can't tell..it's near perfect. The kitchen staff are very accommodating. One friend is very particular and always pleased with the results. To complete the experience is Katya. She is the best......so attentive, so knowledgeable of the menu, just a pleasure.
The hostess that greeted us was very friendly and asked where we would like to sit. We asked our waitress about a couple of wine choices and she offered to let us have a taste. Our salads and dinner were fabulous. Definitely the best Italian restaurant in all of Novato.
