Café Chianti continues to serve up delicious cuisine

Café Chianti moved to Barrington Street last year, several months aftera fire in its historic South Street cellar home.  Although lacking theromantic ambiance of its former spot, it is decorated elegantly,including the original murals.

Chianti’s service is proficient and friendly.The menu features Northern Italian and Eastern European cuisine.


My friend has the Lunch Special ($14.95): a sandwich of melted fontina cheese and capicolla meat on toasted Panini. It tastes great with melted cheese oozing out of it. The side ginger orange soup has a fine balance of flavours.


I try a restaurant specialty: Beef Stroganoff a la Kiev. It’s a rich, generous serving of pappardelle (broad egg noodles) with slivers of tender beef mixed with mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, dill and chives, and sour cream.


No room for dessert, but we sip excellent coffee, happily delaying our return to work.
