What a gem of a restaurant! Who would have thought Cleveland would have such a delightful and sophisticated Italian restaurant like chinato. This restaurant serves a wide variety of dishes you will not find in 90% of Italian restaurants in the US. The flavors are...More

Italian? Not so much. We started with the FRIED BABY ARTICHOKES ALLA GIUDEA, $15. These were completely un-edible and scratched my throat just trying to get them down. The CREAMY POLENTA WITH CHANTERELLE MUSHROOMS $12 had strings of Italian meat all of the top that...More

This place is a large restaurant similar to the Maggiano's chain in style and menu. In other words it is better than a low end "pasta joint" but is below the "fine dining" white table cloth level. I met a friend for dinner. Pasta plates...More
