Food lacked flavour. Garlic bread with cheese was under toasted slices of bread with cheap plastic tasting cheese slices. Had better pizzas elsewhere, didn't feel, look or tastes like authentic Italian. Barely any toppings just plenty of that cheap cheese again. Staff appeared rude and disinterested.

Don't be fooled by the bland, 1960's office block exterior - inside, Chianti is a lovely, welcoming, traditional Italian restaurant. Classically decorated with festooned Chianti bottles, the huge interior was packed on the December Friday evening I and a family group went for dinner. Booking is recommended as it is so busy. There is an extensive menu covering pizzas, pasta,... More

Having just moved to the area and wanting to have a nice Birthday meal out, we decided to book Chianti. We booked a table the day before and advised that I am on crutches due to a broken ankle, we were told they would have a table ready located next to the toilets, for obvious reasons. On arrival tonight (7th... More

Having been here that after a few times before I thought another visit was due after a hard days work. We were spoilt for choice as usual and we both chose the same thing on the menu ,Scampi provinciale although there were several other items that tempted us. It was served hot and very tasty after only a short wait... More

It has been over 3 years since we have been here. Our experience last time was so bad we thought we would never come here again, despite having been several times before. However as we live locally and are always passing it we thought it was about time we try again. Let me make it clear that it wasn't the... More

We visited Chianti for food as we had not been before. We found it to be a hidden gem. Lovely food with a great atmosphere and great service. We ordered a steak and a pasta dish, both were superb. I highly recommend the peppered steak. Unfortunately here was one downfall, a chap sitting next to us, chose to throw a... More

We visit every restaurant at least two times before reviewing anywhere and on both visits to Chianti we have been left dissatisfied with both the food and the service. The owner is rude and patronising and we have been made to feel uncomfortable on both occasions by his attitude. The waiting staff are a little bit warmer but overall the... More
