Must visit for Italian Food lovers

The bruschetta was awesome with the perfect Baguette .We loved the thin crust pizzas . It had the right amount of cheese and seasoning. Most places end up making it to cheesy but not here.

The ambience is nice with both indoor and outdoor?(smoking area) seating options.
The wine menu consists predominantly Indian wines - the Grover and one or two from the Sula vineyards. There are International wines but they could increase the list there.
Overall good food, good fun. Will definitely visit again.

hospitality sucks

Me and my fiance walked in on one day and we didn't know what the restaurant offers. so they gave us a beautiful entry when we entered the restaurant. when we realised it's not the type of food they didn't bother doing anything or talking just cause they knew we were not going to spend. even if I have to have Italian food ever

Decent !!!

It was one of my cousins' birthday and we decided to surprise her by taking her to Chianti. The 1st thing that the name brought to my mind was Hannibal Lecter's famous dialogue from the movie, The Silence of the Lambs -- "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti". Whether your imagination runs wild or not, fear not, what we ate was nothing as gruesome as that :P !!

Chianti is a place with a cosy ambiance and pleasant decor. We are greeted by a bar counter of sorts and very courteous staff as we enter and are soon ushered to a table for 5. The glasses are filled with water, the menu soon arrives and we get busy perusing it. They also provide 2 complimentary bread baskets- One, a D-I-Y garlic bread option { with toasted bread, garlic, miniature tomatoes, basil leaves, olive oil and an instruction chart } and the other containing real soft, melt-in-your-mouth type bread & a bun with some nice "spiced" butter. I must add that my attempt at making the garlic bread was a catastrophe !

For starters (pun intended :D), we ordered -the Funghi Al Forno and the Chicken Crostini. The former came, prettily decorated, with around 8-9 UFO-shaped mushrooms, tiny drops of sauce & other garnishing and a nice salad that contained tasty sun-dried tomatoes. The mushrooms were soft and hot (temperature-wise) inside, easy on the palate. The latter, looked like the garlic bread with toppings that one comes across at Pizza Hut. Ironically, taste-wise, I now personally rate the PH option higher though it is veg. But let me add that this could also be due to my lack of familiarity with Italian cuisine, which till date has been restricted to Pizzas & Lasagnes. There were some mocktails added to the mix though and there isn't anything to write about them. They're mocktails !!!

We then navigated towards the Main course and out came - Chicken Canelloni, Chicken Lasagne (no prize for guessing who ordered it :P), Pollo Alla Parmigiana for the carnivores and Pizza Rustica & Ravioli DI Spinaci E Ricotta with Four-Cheese Sauce for the others. I would say that there was no real stand-out dish among these and we felt that the Pizza Rustica came close to taking the cake (if that's possible :P !!). The tastes of Canelloni and Lasagne could not really be differentiated except maybe for the fact that the Canelloni had extra cheese. Maybe a person with a discerning tongue for Italian cuisine might have a better opinion. The Pollo Alla Parmigiana too wasn't anything spectacular.

Since it was a birthday dinner, we did not order any individual desserts and instead, had pre-ordered a half-kg cake from the restaurant. They had just 3 options - Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry and we opted for the Chocolate Cake. The cake was quite nice, though not exceptional and being just half-kg, the 5 of us managed to polish it off, including the usual tradition of "polishing" the b'day girl's face with some cake :P !

Ultimately, this turned in to a situation of classical dilemma. Was it a good or bad experience ? I'd maybe still reserve my judgement, considering the largely rave reviews by others. Maybe it was their off day or our choices of dishes could've been better. Another visit might resolve this dilemma.

So like they say in Italy - Buon Appetito and Arrivederci :) !!!
