Chianti Cafe & Restaurant: "Buon Giorno...Manga, Manga!!!" Chianti's - Uptown 17 Tip by spartan

Chianti's - Uptown 17, Calgary: 3 reviews and 0 photos

Casual dining italian restaurant with emphasis on pasta, veal, seafood and chicken. Their portions are large and prices are reasonable ($6.00 to $9.00/CND) with ample parking at rear. Would highly recommend making reservations.

Favorite Dish: hmmmmm....let's see if I can fully describe this wonderful meal. Start off with one of the following appetizers, you can't go wrong: Calamari, Prawns in garlic butter or Olives in tomato sauce. After you fill up on that, the waiter/waitress brings hot bread so that you can dip it in olive oil and balsamic vinegar...oh so good!!! For dinner, the restaurant has a large menu to choose from, but this night I decided to try the Fusilli Combo which came with egg, bacon and shrimp in a fettuccini sauce...words can't begin to describe how awesome this meal was!!! A nice bottle of red wine is the perfect accompaniment to this fabulous meal... Buon Appetite!!!
