Cafe Chianti is an old standby in Halifax. It's always been quaint and reliable. Their wine cellar has some very special selections, and their service is great if you allo0w them to spread their wings a bit. Our waiter seemed almost elated when we asked if they had any more special wine selections. He was delighted to share his more than adequate wine knowledge, and gave us the cellar tour! We had a surprising little Pinot Noir. We stuck to the classic dishes and they were delicious and professionally executed.

We had been to Cafe Chianti when we visited Halifax in November, and wanted to try it again this trip. It did not disappoint. Everything about the evening was wonderful - the service (our waiter was professional, friendly and helpful), the atmosphere and, of course, the food. DELICIOUS. The portions are perfect and the prices quite reasonable for such a lovely restaurant.We will be back on our next trip to Halifax, and I recommend Cafe Chianti to anyone visiting the city.

The evening went very well, especially considering that the restaurant had given up on Bookenda and gone back to Open Table, which worked much better than this troubled new system. Although they were busy that evening and did not actually have our reservation, they were able to accommodate us for dinner. They said they would follow up again with Bookenda to find out why it continues to make reservations at their restaurant.

The food was excellent. We enjoyed the seafood pasta very much. Pizza Margarita was really good too. The server was most cheerful and very helpful indeed. We will go to Cafe Chianti again.

Absolutely wonderful ! My daughter and I went out for an early Mother's Day dinner. It was Wednesday, which is "Pasta Night". There was an impressive selection of special pastas at reduced prices. They also offer discounted Italian wine to pair with the pasta dishes. Everything we ordered was excellent and portions were substantial, so we took some home. Our waiter Shawn was a delight! Love this place, will definitely be back. Thank you, keep doing what you do.

Were acknowledged right away upon arrival and seated... but then was almost 10 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order. It wasn't that busy to warrant that much of a delay. Food was very good.

Excellent food and service by Scotty. Only small complaint is that lighting is a little dark to read the menus which have very small print for poor eyes

Cafe Chianti consistently delivers! The quality of the food and the quality of the service is second to none in Halifax, including in comparison to restaurants that charge more for their dishes. It is our favourite place to dine in Halifax, bar none.

A night out in Halifax – with pizza!

A night out in Halifax – with pizza!

One may think of Café Chianti as more of a white tablecloth resto than a pizza joint. Indeed, celebrated chef Terry Vassallo is at the helm, with his Italian cuisine prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients. But, there is also a more casual area by the bar where a pizza and glass of Chianti seem proper. Café Chianti has six pizzas on their dinner menu, all with intriguing and balanced flavours. There is a classic margherita, of course, amongst spicy, salty and smoky themes. And, it wouldn’t hurt you to try the calamari!
