Chianti Restaurant

Chianti Restaurant is a long time Gaslamp Quarter favorite, known for its authentic Italian cuisine, including hand made pastas, fresh seafood, and classic steaks. Our menu features recipes inherited from the rustic provinces of Tuscany, and are crafted from the freshest ingredients imported from Italy.

We offer an extraordinary wine selection featuring both Californian & Italian Regional wines, as well as a full bar that provides a wide range of liquors and after-dinner drinks. Our veteran staff maintains a refined yet relaxing ambiance for a stellar dining experience amid the tiled entryway, plush seating & beautiful Italian accents. Guests enjoy our window tables and patio dining amid the bustling Gaslamp's busy nightlife.

Our historic building is adjacent to San Diego’s Convention Center, Petco Park & Horton Plaza. We’re also close to many of downtown’s biggest hotels and hottest nightclubs. Private or semi-private rooms may be booked for 20-65 guests

"This is our favorite restaurant in San Diego...and there are soooo many! My daughter and I go there every year for her B-day. This was our 4th in a row. I highly recommend Chianti. The food is exceptional and the wait staff are THE BEST! Thanks again for a great experience!"

"Totally unacceptable delay in getting food with no explanation. They threw in a few free cappuccinos and desserts but still charged their standard 18% service charge for parties of six or more. Arguably, we weren't even six people since one had to leave before ever getting her food."

"The lobster bisque, wine, salmon and ravioli were all excellent! The only course that put a damper on our meal was the dressing for the spinach and kale salad. It ruined the taste of the salad, which was fresh and crisp and should have complimented our meal."

"I think the portions were small and overpriced. The red wine I ordered was not at the correct temperature and therefore it did not taste well. We were not offered dessert but had to ask when our waiter was trying to present us with our bill. We had to ask a second time for bread to be brought out as well. PS: They were NOT busy in there at this time of day, 5 PM."

"Chianti's food was decent but overpriced. You can definitely find a better Italian restaurant in the San Diego neighborhood - just make reservations before! I was dissatisfied with the amount of money I paid for my food vs the quality of it. I got the Lobster Ravioli and it was bland and oily.. it was also $32 and only came with 6 small raviolis - so that says it all."

"I have been to Chianti several times, and each time it's always a fantastic experience as well as impressive food! I have had many different things on the menu, but my favorite entree is the Pesto Gniochi with shrimp! The staff is always pleasant and it's clear that they want you to have a great dining experience!"

"Showed up for our reservation but not sure the "checked us in" on Open Table. Entree my mother ordered wasn't available but restaurant charged us for dish we didn't order! Had to return to restaurant after theatre to have charge adjusted. Overall, service was okay but food was mediocre - a restaurant for tourists. My dish was labeled "spicy" but when it arrived it was anything but. Just another overpriced Gaslamp money trap. Will not go back."

"My wife and I were looking forward to a nice meal. When we arrived for an early reservation we were about the only ones there. That soon changed and despite having multiple tables open and the back portion of the restaurant empty, they chose to sit people right next to each other. The hostess and waitress were friendly but the service was slow ( not enough wait staff). I had the seafood linguini which was supposed to come in a spicy red sauce. The seafood was overcooked and the sauce was tasteless, it didn't even taste like tomatoes and there was no spiciness to it. My wife had pasta and shrimp and the same was true of her meal. Overcooked shrimp and tasteless sauce. I hoped I could say better things but it really was an average meal at best"

"Excellent service. The beef carpaccio is the best I've had since I had it made personally for me by an Italian chef. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection. My friends enjoyed theirs too. The menu is a little pricey, but well worth it. If you get there on a night when the special is Osso Bucco, don't hesitate! The wine choices were good, too. As far as the notable Italian restaurants in San Diego, Chianti is the top choice for me when I travel there."

"Very disappointing experience and very overpriced. Service started off well but then deteriorated. Timing of food delivery was way off and seemed rushed. The fish in my dish was dry and overcooked and the sauce completely tasteless. The restaurant itself could do with an overhaul. Save your money!!"

"Food and service oustanding! Tables are really close together so it isn't very quiet and doesn't feel private."
