We love eating at Chianti's! I frequently order the zucchilini noodles and love them! You can enjoy a quiet meal in the dining room, or eat near the bar area to enjoy the live music.

Had a reservation, seated right away! From the moment we arrived the hospitality was top notch. Relaxing atmosphere nice linen table cloth and napkins with candle and bottle of wine dresses the table. I ordered the pumpkin ravioli with pear and gorgonzola cheese yummy! Scollops for an appetizer Swordfish special and other dishes were equally delicious. We couldn't pass up... More

Really great food and the atmosphere is pretty nice. They occasionally have live music. The food was delicious with some vegetarian options. However, it can feel a bit overcrowded, which can reduce some of the romantic atmosphere.

Very cute and cozy place inside. Enter into the bar (where they feature live jazz). Through the bar are several dining areas . . . all of which are quite charming. Interesting menu and wine list. Pros: attentive waitstaff. Bread baked on site. Food was delicious. Pizza, arugula salad, meat balls were great. Our friends had a seafood thing (which... More

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
