overall good. loud to speak to our table. A bit slow getting a drink, but quickly got better.
I had stomach upset all night and next day, everyone else was fine. I had the steak with a sauce.
Took my wide for her birthday and the service and food was incredible. Proposed to my wife at this restaurant, the old location, and i would not hesitate to recommend this fine eatery to anyone, for any occasion. Just outstanding.
Everything about the meal and service were very good. My only complaint is the Calamari. We asked for a seafood sauce intending to dip the calamari in the sauce. We were advised there was no seafood sauce but there was a tomato sauce so we said that was fine. The calamari arrived saturated/tossed with the tomato sauce which made the fried coating soggy. The calamari was tasty but the texture was not appealing at all. In hindsight we should have returned it and asked for the sauce on the side. We did not know to do this upfront because coming from Ottawa, the calamari is always served with the sauce on the side. We like our calamari breaded and fried crispy - putting the sauce all over it makes the coating wet and soggy. Otherwise, great meal.
The food and the servers were fantastic. It was a great way to spend my Anniversary with my awesomeing husband. Can't wait to go again
The food, setting and service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone . It’s a quiet, welcoming and romantic place for a quiet meal.
The calamari was soggy and dissatisfying. The rib eye steaks were great. Piano playing was a bit too loud for ambient music
Serving staff were very attentive, the food delicious and served in very generous portions.
Honestly the pizza was more of a homemade style then a thin Italian style and had very little flavour .. the calamari was good but had very little sauce and the rib eye was tasty but had too much fat which was sinuous.. and the cram sauce on the potatoes was a bit rich as well as the steak sauce.. overall the menu was dated
Excellent service, will return One if the best in Halifax!
Excellent food, excellent service. Suggest calling to reserve, when I tried to reserve online it told me the first available table was at 8:30pm when in fact there were tables available earlier in the evening.
They were very busy. It was recommended to us by our guide. They had several large groups and the server staff was running around crazy. It was OK but not what I was looking for.
Watched 5 tables of two, one table of 4, and a group of 6 who arrived after our party of four and they received their meals first. Most didn’t appear to have a reservation but we did. No explanation. No apology. We served our own wine through the meal. Mussels were partially skunky, lobster ravioli overwhelmed with garlic (could not eat). Lasagna was large portion but average taste. Deserts were quite good. Won’t return sorry.
The food was very good, the ambience was good and the service was excellent. We took our two children (age 13 and 11) and they both could find delicious dishes that they liked. We would definitely go back
A wonderful experience. Very helpful, knowledgeable staff. Friendly and professional. Food was wonderful, and the staff seemed proud to serve it. Excellent!
Excellent staff and excellent food. We are never disappointed when we go there.
The restaurant was very busy so the service was a bit slow. The food was great and overall it was a wonderful evening.
Great service..quaint restaurant. The meals are beautifully plated but pricey. I have tried steak, pasta, pizza and various salads. The chicken linguine was my least favorite with very little chicken and flavor. The pizzas are delish and made for more than one person.
Many years ago, before Cafe Chianti moved to its current location, it was always our special date night dinner choice.
This recent visit reminded me of what we loved about the restaurant. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and quiet. The service is always excellent & thoughtful, and the food is amazing!
We will be back.
Wonderful server, food was very good.... well done! Thank you.
Friendly atmosphere; great food; great service. The mussels in the cream sauce were excellent.
Busy evening, perhaps, but inexperienced staff and long waits for drinks and food. The restaurant recognized this, apologized and provided complimentary wine, but I hate being served my up-front cocktail at the same time as my appetizer. I can go to a ‘road-house’ type restaurant, get food 80% as good with prompt service and a bill 50% as high. So again, while the food is very good, as is the ambiance, and they tried to make amends, I won’t be trying this restaurant again any time soon.
It was too dark, too loud (need a few partitions to soften conversations) and there was no music. Food was fantastic service was slow although it was quite busy.
Sub-par food at premium prices. Service is not up to snuff for this price point.
Excellent waitress!! Food was incredible! Atmosphere was great! We visit frequently!!
Food was delicious. I had the chicken and it was yummy! One person in our party had the lobster stuffed ravioli. She said it was very good but the portion is very small for the price.
We'd enjoyed our first experience at Cafe Chianti during the winter, so it was the obvious choice for a return visit, and we weren't disappointed. Yes, the music was so loud that it was difficult for us to hear our server's specials, but once she turned the volume down, we had a lovely dining experience. The food was delicious, beautifully presented, and the service pleasant and friendly. Looks like another visit is in order!
Waiter was unfriendly, zero conversation with our group other than taking orders and asking if the meal was ok. Food was mediocre, two of the smallest bits of veal on my plate, four bites and it was gone. The fish ordered by our group and others around smelled definitely a few days old...overall disappointment. Will never be back
Food was great, service was good! We will go again.
Our favorite place never disappoints. Love this place.
Our waiter and waitress were wonderful, food was great but we found it a bit noisy once the super crowd came in and then the panio playing. Too much especially for people wearing hearing aids and if you like to have conversation with friends.
Our meal was delicious, I ordered the halibut which was delicious and my husbands calamari and pizza was also delicious
beautiful restaurant with exceptional service and amazing food
Great food and service! Can’t wait to go back again!
Always Beautiful there! Food is awesome!
Presentation is very good! Very enjoyable!
Most definitely would recommend (actually already have)
Not only was the food excellent but the presentation was wonderful as well.
Server was very pleasant and attentive.
Will be going back for sure.
Very disappointed. Had heard very good things, but ambiance was so tacky, and food was not up to expectations. Overpriced for what you're actually getting. "Faux-fancy." This is somewhere that I'd expect my grandparents to take me for dinner, which isn't really a good thing ultimately. Not somewhere I would go regularly, or ever again. In a big pool of other extremely good, experimental but reliable, and reasonably priced restaurants in Halifax, Cafe Chianti really fell flat.
Perfect as always! Delicious food. Great service. Good times had by all.
It was good
Definitely would recommend this restaurant. The food is fantastic. Have been there quite a few times in the past year. Service was great. Server was very nice and knowledgeable. Nice cozy atmosphere
Great as always!!! Never disappointed in the food, service and atmosphere. The music on Friday evenings is a nice touch. Definately one of my fqvorite restaurants.
