Chiantis is a well run business that has all the angles covered: a) decent food b) lunch specials c) Sun to Wed specials d) Italian themed decor e) appropriatedly dressed servers f) host/hostess Warning: It can get busy during the times that the specials are being offered. The early bird gets the worm.

We arrived around 5 pm Wednesday, and ushered to a window seat. Bread was served before the meal with oil and balsamic vinegar, a very nice treat. I had the oscar chicken which was excellent, but the veggies needed to be cooked a little more. My hubby had a curry chicken with pears which he stated was excellent. We shared... More

It's been several years since I lasted visited Chianti, so it was disappointing to see that it had transformed from being a nice 'Italian-style' restaurant, with charm and ambiance to, frankly, a rather plain restaurant. Main courses were OK and reasonably priced, and, on the plus side, the service was good and attentive. I guess, having had certain expectations from... More

Valentine's Day, 2017. Made a reservation on Jan 18 for Feb 14, 2017. Thought booking ahead would ensure a lovely table. There were NO LOVELY TABLES! We were stuck at a table where waiters and guests were walking by on two sides of us, constantly bumping our chairs. You could not fit a body's width between the tables! Our waiter... More

Service slow during busy times but generally consistent as is food normally. Although sometimes the pasta add ins r on skimpy side and pasta is mushy and overdone, even during slow times. Portion sizes r generally ok. We have had great service from some of the longtime servers. They need to keep the bread coming during busy times when service... More

We dropped by here on a day they had their pasta special. Average pasta at a reasonable price ($8.95). Server was polite and the food came quick. I would go back for the special.

Went out for New Years eve meal and order 2 of the specials. The chicken was half a chicken cut up into breast piece and leg/thigh piece. Not the easiest to eat but would have been good if not drying out already. ( we were the early seating). The other special was seafood linguine. Not one of the worst dishes... More

On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Chianti's has all their pasta for $8.99. I have never had a dish I didn't like and most I adore! I can eat in a restaurant with a nice atmosphere, good service and lovely food for the same price as I could eat fast food at Carl's Jr's! I'll take Chianti's, thank you very much!

We had planned to visit a downtown Calgary restaurant for dinner but a forecasted snowfall kept us closer to home for a lunch instead. We have never been disappointed with this Chianti's and were satisfied again. Warmly welcomed at the door we were seated while waiting for our other guest to arrive. Soon our plate of olive oil and balsamic... More

We ordered the crab and artichoke dip appie which had not one iota of either crab OR artichoke in it. A huge disappointment. It was like a dish of melted cream cheese. Then came the entrees. My...
