Italian
Situated in the heart of beautiful downtown Saratoga Springs, Chianti Il Ristorante serves sophisticated, authentic Northern Italian fare in an elegant setting. Combining seasonal food, an award-winning wine selection, a welcoming and knowledgeable staff and a detailed, inviting ambiance Chianti provides every guest with a superb and unforgettable dining experience. Aesthetically inspiring, its rustic walls, hard wood floors and green onyx bar invoke the authenticity of conventional Italian architecture while remaining slightly modern. The culinary philosophy at Chianti is based on a respect for tradition. With artisan breads and pastas, housemade sausage and braised meats it is culinary craftsmanship at its best. Our guests have the chance to savor fresh food, from a selection of expertly-sliced carpaccio, to a variety of wild fish, to risotto that is made only with Vialone Nano rice grown exclusively in Italy's Venetto region. "The hottest restaurant in town." The New York Times

Excellent experience, highly recommend. The food and service were fantastic. The “covid safe” set-up makes for a private, intimate dinner with partitions between diners. Loved it.

Excellent dinner! All the dishes were expertly prepared. First indoor meal since the lockdown and we weren't disappointed. The staff does a great job being covid compliant by spacing out the tables and are attentive to social distancing

We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server, Kevin, did a typically excellent job of both attending to our needs, and acceding to our wish not to be rushed.
Food was off alittle, with pasta dish being unusually spicy, fish slightly underdone and short rib deliver at tepid temperature.
Wine bottle prices seemed to have risen dramatically.
Because we have long history with this restaurant, we will still go back and expect that food will be better next time.

Felt rushed the entire time we were there, service continually circle around our table to either remove plates or ask if we were done. Chianti will not be a choice on our next visit to Saratoga.

Our Valentine's Day Dinner was amazing. The staff could not have been more welcoming and the food was just fabulous! So was their wine selection! Our Valentine's Dinner was magical - a very special memory for us.

We had a delightful dinner at Chianti for the Split The Bill promotional event. We were placed in a very comfortable nook. I had the Italiana salad and the Pasta Senesi. My husband had the pork belly appetizer special and Shrimp Gambino. The food was delicious. Service was great.

We have been here many times and have always enjoyed ourselves. Especially the cooking class we took. The most recent visit, however, seemed as if the food took forever to get to us and when it did the chicken on the penne ala vodka was over cooked. Wait staff had told us it was coming out shortly after waiting an hour and it took another 20 minutes after that for the food to come out. They apologized profusely but that did not help the over cooked chicken on any of the 3 plates of the 6 people dining that evening. My son did enjoy his duck, which was good to hear.

Went to Chianti for a date and the place was perfect. They had partition walls up for superstition and privacy during COVID. Our waiter was amazing, friendly and attentive. Food was amazing as usual and overall was a fantastic experience. Will definitely be back again.
