Grest service and food. My wife and I split the pomodoro, spinach salad, crab ravioli, and Lasagma. All wonderfully prepared and beautifully presented. Would definitely recommend.

Happened upon this place by chance, and am glad that I did. Pricier than some other places in the Gaslamp area, but the food is worth it. Great variety and selection on the menu, the food was outstanding. Serious portions, too - you won't leave hungry. The staff were very attentive, and obviously very knowledgeable about the menu offerings. The girlfriend and I both had questions, and our waiter answered with obvious experience and sincerity - no rote-script commentary on the dishes, but honest (and excellent) suggestions. The food wasn't super-quick in coming, but this is obviously a place where you are planning on taking your time, so that wasn't a detractor. If you want a good, quality Italian dining experience down in the Gaslamp, check out Chianti. And be sure to try the tiramisu!

Although the server forgot our orders and we waited over half hour for an antipasto...their pasta dishes are more than made up for their initial shortcomings. Their daily special linguine alla coda di aragosta (lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp linguine) was superb. Sitting here again for our second meal in less than 3 days.

Great food, but a lil noisy, if you sit on the patio. Halibut San Romeno was fantastic and tiramasu was awesome!

I went here for Halloween a few years back because I had a restaurant certificate. My friend and I did dress up and walked in and we got a few looks but that's why we were in costume! My friend and I had the cold cuts and mixed cheese board which had every type of italian deli meat you could imagine and delicious cheeses. It was a great way to warm up our stomachs for ravioli and lasagna. My friend had the lobster ravioli but she didn't like it very much and my lasagna was pretty standard. I don't remember too much of either because it seemed good enough to eat but not something I would have paid full price for without the restaurant certificate. Our waiter was really nice and was also a wine distributor and offered great advice about wines. I had the moscato and it was definitely yummy but I don't think you can ever go wrong with moscato!

After having lived in Italy for 9 years, this equals some of the best. The most attractive part is the quietness of the accoustics making even a crowded dining room easy to hear your guest. We found the service comfortably slow as the food is cooked to order fresh; especially the seafood. For those who want quick service and no time for intimate conversation, there are many available drive through fast food chains! I recommend it!

Great Italian in the Gaslamp :) We had a wonderful experience at Chianti. The Cioppino was great and the pasta super fresh. Our waiter Jason was very knowledgeable about the wines and the menu and made sure we were well taken care of.
