Chianti has been around for a long time and is one of the first few restaurants to have started on this busy Koramangala street.

Considering the number of restaurants which have popped up over the fast few years this place has managed to maintain their customer base as well rope in many others with their flawless service and excellent food.

This restaurant being close to my office has been my destination for many a client lunch / dinner.

The ambience is welcoming with comfortable seating and soft lighting making it a definite dinner stopover for those looking for a romantic setting.

This particular outing was a meal with colleagues – a group of 4.

Our server was polite and extremely well mannered with a smile on his face which is such a pleasure to see nowadays.

APPETIZER:

CROSTINI DI VERDURE

This simple appetizer was perfect to start our meal with the bread toasted to perfection and the toppings adding the perfect crunch.

BEVERAGES 

Being a working lunch, my colleague and I decided to stick to mocktails for our meal.

VIRGIN SANGRIA

VIRGIN MOJITO

MAIN COURSE:

GAMBERI ALLA GRIGLIA 

0516f2f0-38a8-4eda-a34b-6a21991e1d64Grilled Tiger prawns  in zesty lemon and butter sauce served with grilled vegetables. The prawns were lightly flavoured and in combination with the butter sauce was absolutely delightful. I suppose the grilled vegetables could have deserved  a little more attention from the Chef.

PIZZA DI VERDURE

8ff78743-efba-410e-9e3b-9d8401235d78For my veggie colleagues, this seems to be a must order dish and its combination of mixed vegetables with mozzarella cheese and olive oil did not disappoint.

SALMONE ALLA GRIGLIA

05a456f9-3ae4-443d-aabc-22590460179aGrilled Salmon with a lemon butter sauce served with spaghetti aglio olio peperonico was the dish our server suggested as one of their Signature dishes.

The salmon was buttery soft though a little bland on the flavour but the lemon sauce provided along with the spaghetti made the dish quite interesting.

LASAGNE AL FORNO

DESSERTS:

Though I do not have much of a sweet tooth, I knew that their desserts were good and we ordered for the below mentioned.

TIRAMISU 

9194582d-dc81-47b3-a4fb-75411fef454aAn excellently plated and prepared Tiramisu.

PANNA COTTA 

4ab5987f-2645-426d-a51a-c29dc9881f21Once again flawless presentation of soft melt in the Panna Cotta served with Berry compote.

CIOCCOLATO ALLA NOCCIOLA MOUSSE 

149ff349-4df0-40fe-b7d5-15dae862d090A Hazelnut chocolate mousse with an impressive sounding name was my dessert. The mousse was excellent, though I did not like the hazelnut base too much.

Having had original Italian cuisine in Rome and Milan, I can definitely say that Chianti is probably one of Bangalore’s best Italian restaurants.
