Sicily natives and Chianti restaurateurs Enrico and Nino Giacalone serve rustic, taste-bud-wooing regional and Northern Italian fare in a romantic atmosphere. Settle in with a glass of Geyser Peak sauvignon blanc ($6.00) or Columbia Crest Two Vines shiraz ($8.25), and stoop to conquer appetizers such as the funghi in padella con granchio, jumbo lump crabmeat and mushroom caps boldly bathed with white wine, parsley, and lemon-butter sauce ($9.50). Entree eaters may become beguiled by oceanic fruits including the Pagello "Albert,” a sautéed snapper as fresh as a mint-scented wink from a stranger ($19.75). Conduct a forked foray into the house signature dish, scaloppini alle noci e more, a flavorful juggling act of veal scaloppini bursting with blackberries and shrimp; sautéed with mushrooms, shallots, and roasted almonds; and flamed with blackberry brandy in a rich cream sauce ($25.95). Hearty portions may sway even selfish sweet teeth to share succulent slivers of the mocha-almond butter cream cake ($4.95).
Between blissful bites and sumptuous sips, guests may fill eye-stomachs on Chianti's atmospheric décor. Pull up a chair by richly wooded wine racks, or sit against a white stucco wall for maximum feature-flattering contrast. Customers looking to soak their sustenance in waves of sodium-rich sound may dine in the restaurant's Green Room on weekends from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., which houses a baby grand piano, extended cocktail list, and vaunted performances from skilled songsmiths.
- This is a truly excellent experience, and a superb dining location. The atmosphere is well-done, the wait staff is well-trained and experienced, and the food is without parallel. – LSU_Prof, TripAdvisor
- Every visit has been lovely and I have never had any issues with food or service there. I was just especially impressed with how well we were treated as a young family with children. – msjp, Urbanspoon
