Chiara had a nice decor and polite staff. Service was OK. The Arctic char was fantastic although the riscotto was a tad under cooked. The calamari was overcooked and salad drenched in dressing. The restaurant was very busy which may have contributed to the quality. I would give this another shot.

Chiara offers a Mediterranean style menu prepared and presented in a high, fine dining ambiance. Located in Westwood it is a Boston high end restaurant experience that is easy to reach with free parking and good prices for the quality they deliver. One of their specialties is gnocchi, prepared in a variety of ways. Our meal was served with braised... More

Shhh, as Yogi would say this place is so hard to get into that no one goes there anymore. Plan ahead. It's worth it. Food is great, specials always worth consideration, help is friendly and attentive. What more can I say.

I had the beet salad, small portion, for small it was very good sized portion for one. It was good, not the best I had. But the... More

We had the most accommodating waitress who was friendly, helpful, and very attentive. Our drinks were spot on, and our meals were very good. The menu is not a large one, and I do wish I... More

Was invited to the restaurant by a colleague for a business dinner. The food was exquisitely prepared from the goat cheese, figs and water crackers, to the arugula salad, to the main entree of a wonderfully stuffed chicken breast. The highlight though, were the homemade dark chocolate truffles, which really hit the spot! Only drawback - don't head to the... More
