I now live a few hours away from Italy. Yet, when I travel to the Chicago suburbs a few times a year, the one place I make sure to go is Chianti's. The atmosphere is great and the location is just beautiful to stroll before and after. The minestrone soup is amazing, as are the mushroom caps. The salad options... More

A couple of good friends invited us to Chianti's at Geneva for the Wednesday spaghetti and meatballs special. What a nice find it was! The lunch sized portions are available all hours and are nice sized. Their wine selection is small but quality. The terramisu is really good. The location is in the heart of Geneva. All in all, we...

Six friends and I traveled to Secrets Aura from February 25 to March 4, 2017. It was a wonderful experience. The staff was exceptional, especially, my favorite person Mariana, who was the pool concierge. She helped us with so many things. She is very sweet, and deserves kudos for her professionalism. Plus, she is fun. We also liked William and... More

Chianti's hosted our rehearsal lunch for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! The food was delicious - everyone couldn't stop raving about the dinner rolls, lemon chicken and pasta with sausage & peppers. They were very accommodating to my fiance and I, as we are both allergic to peanuts. They even brought us out... More

Chianti has been our go to place for years now. We always go for early lunch because it is usually busy later on. We love the food and they do everything they can to accommodate your likes and dislikes.The atmosphere is great, the service always excellent and you can't go wrong listening to the classics of Sinatra, Martin and alike.

I have to be honest, the first time I went to Chianti's I didn't much care for it..it was too crowded, too noisy, but we had lunch there yesterday and it was quiet, charming and the food was great.... My husband raved over the lasagna. I had the Chianti Burger and it was very good, cooked perfectly and the hand... More

I enjoyed the lasagna and was happy there was an option for a lunch portion - I still had leftovers to take home! The salad was good, and the rolls were okay. The prices were reasonable (especially for the lunch portions). The service was S L O W! We had to wait to give our drink orders, wait to get... More

We've been to Chianti's a couple of times and have never been disappointed. We went in on a Friday without reservations and they were able to accommodate us right away. Love that offer lunch size portions for dinner. We both had pasta, one spaghetti and marinara and the other chicken Alfredo and you can tell by the sauces that you... More
