About Us

last updated March 8, 2017

Chianti is one of Adelaide’s most successful, award-winning restaurants and renowned for its superb traditional and modern Italian cuisine, fine wines and impeccable service.

From humble beginnings in 1985, Chianti is celebrating its 32nd year this year. Many of our customers have travelled that journey with us and we celebrate their loyalty and friendship, as much as we enjoy welcoming new customers and travellers on a daily basis.

Centrally located on Hutt Steet (in the Adelaide CBD) Chianti is at the most a 10 minute taxi ride from any of Adelaide’s international hotels and we provide our patrons an elegant dining experience in the friendly warmth of a classic Italian family trattoria.

Chianti offers a ground floor restaurant, all-weather al fresco dining and two private upstairs dining rooms, ideal for intimate celebrations, cocktail parties, corporate functions and events.

Our menus, which change several times a year, are focused on seasonal and local and interpreted with precisely the same enthusiasm a new season brings in regional Italy. Our multi-award winning wine list is sourced from the old and new world and Chianti has an incredible reserve list that features some of the world’s greatest wines.

As one of the first restaurants in South Australia to be awarded the Ospitalità Italiana accreditation, presented by the Italian Government and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Australia, we are committed to delivering an authentic Italian dining experience and recreating a little piece of Italy in Adelaide.
