Two hours to get our main. Forgot one order. Food was not tasty and overpriced
We had a great meal, and the service was outstanding.
Exceptional food, service and value.
Fantastic food, home made ravioli. Very generous portions. Awesome dining experience. Have been going here for a very long time. Highly recommend
Will return, one of my favourite restaurants in the city.
Our waitress made the evening very special . The food was spectacular
Once seated everything was great. But there were a large number of people waiting at the entrance for a table and we were not able to socially distance with others without being outside in the cold. Also we had to wait 15 minutes beyond our reservation time. Perhaps they need to leave more time between reservations to ensure the table is ready on time which would reduce the wait line at the entrance.
Cafe Chianti is an amazing restaurant. Best fine dining in Halifax. The food, service and ambiance never disappoints!
Amazing. One of the best steaks I’ve had in my life!!
Valentines - food was Delish and good social distancing -
Music was a bit too loud but truly a good experience
Amazing fresh pasta dishes, authentic Italian, great wine list.
It was a first experience for my spouse and I, and we truly loved it. We will keep Café Chianti at the top of our list for eating out. Excellent all around!
After 10 years in Halifax it's still our favourite place for a nice dinner out!
We haven’t been here in a long time, but it used to be one of our favs. After tonight, it’s back on our list of fav places to go. Our server was lovely and the food was just as good. We both had the arugula salad and it was delicious! I had the butternut squash ravioli and Glen had the spaghetti and meatballs. We both really enjoyed it. A lovely night out. ❤️ we will be back soon!
Elegant setting in a historic downtown building. The food and service were top notch.
Will go back and would highly recommend.
Saturday evening meal (x5), on the 2000 second sitting. Good table, socially separated and a nice warm room. Lots of choices and food was well presented and of good quality. This restaurant is quieter than the busier part of Halifax but we liked this. Recommended
Again a stellar performance from the kitchen and staff. I can’t gush enough about the new vegetarian pasta options. Food is always too notch and service likewise. The environment is clean and Covid 19 in tune. I as a cancer client I look forward to takeout as our Covid numbers rise.
The new fall menu has added an extra veggie pasta. The ravioli was so rich and yummy. The cocktails were well made and wine selection as always, well rounded. Love this restaurant, for me best Italian in Halifax.
Always consistent. Great service, great food
Great food and atmosphere!
Great overall experience! Never disappointing.
My dish wasn’t great seafood pasta but they had burnt the garlic so very bitter taste.
It was great, not our usual great, chicken was a bit dry and the food wait was a bit long. However, still my favorite restaurant. Blackened Haddock was awesome! Thanks to our waitress, due to the wait, had an extra glass of wine!!
We love the table by the window. Quiet spot. Tim, our server, was excellent! Always a great meal!
Excellent birthday dinner
They were just amazing and the food was wonderful
Great meal, great service, great ambiance and we will be back!
Classic Italian fare, very flavourful, served with attentive service and a commitment to the little details. The pasta dishes are highly recommended, and not a morsel of pizza was left on anyone's plate.
Amazing restaurant-great atmosphere and the best Italian cuisine in the city!
A great place to eat, good food service and ambience
We eat here fairly often. It is loud, especially in the large dining area. We prefer to sit on the bar side where it's a bit more intimate and quieter. Service is hit and miss...sometimes friendly, sometimes not so much, sometimes very attentive and sometimes too busy for one server at seemingly too many tables. Food is always delicious though.
Beautiful setting and ambiance decent prices too :) we bought on groupon but woukd def go back :)
This is a great restaurant with food that is consistently well prepared, and the service is terrific. It is a great place to take a date, or your family for an elegant evening out.
Enjoyed our evening and meal at Cafe Chianti. The wine, food, and service were wonderful! My boyfriend and I felt we had an intimate yet relaxed and private setting as we were given the option to sit by the window next to the bar. This made for a perfect date night! The highback chairs were classy and comfortable. Highly recommend the lobster ravioli. It was to die for!
Nice dining experience.
We had a very nice meal. We always enjoy the ambiance at Cafe Chianti.
Great atmosphere, full restaurant on a Saturday night. Tasty drinks, and delicious food. Welcoming staff
Incredible food, wonderful staff. Quite close quarters with little room between tables, so it feels crowded and loud
We have been to Café Chianti a few times now and it hasn't disappointed us yet. Our food was excellent as was the service. We enjoy going to Café Chianti and will definitely return again.
Enjoyed the food, had a great night, always do there!
