What an amaazing experience! We had made reservations at Chapelli’s for our anniversary celebration. We arrived at the appointed time and were seated immediately at a nice corner table by the window. As some others have said here, you might not expect a place like this in this location but the restaurant is amazingly cozy and intimate. Very soon after being seated, someone was pouring water. Another person was clearing the extra place settings from the table. I could tell already that this was going to be special. Soon another staff member brought bread and an antipasti dish.
When our server, Brianna, came to our table, we ordered a bottle of chianti for our celebration. It didn’t take long for the wine to arrive. Once the wine was open, Brianna went over the menu and we ordered our food. No rush here. She allowed us time to enjoy some wine and relax for a bit. She came back to check on us several times and took time to chat with us awhile.
Entrees here come with soup or salad, and a bread pudding dessert at the end of the meal. I had the minestrone soup and my wife had the house salad with creamy Italian dressing which she described as excellent. I don’t normally have minestrone soup but this was so good. For the entree we had the Tuscany Shrimp and Linguini. The sauce was heavenly and so were the shrimp.
The wine is gone and it’s time for the dessert. Surprise! Since we had mentioned that it was our anniversary, she brought a slice of cheesecake and bread pudding that we could share. Since the cheesecake was on the house, she even offered to bring another bread pudding if we wanted it but we declined.
We live about 2 hours away and go to La Quinta a couple of times a year but had not discovered Chapelli’s before. Our experience was so amazing that it woule almost be worth a special trip just for dinner! I am looking forward to our next dining experience here.
