Chianti Italian Restaurant Indiranagar Bangalore
Last Thursday, my husband and I dined at Chianti, Italian restaurant. It’s been a while since we had been to this restaurant. And let me tell you it’s my favourite when it comes to Italian food. We went to Indiranagar one, they also have one in Koramangala.
I really like this place for many things. The ambience, service and of course the food! They have ample seats so you won’t be standing in a queue for long. In winters it’s nice to seat in the outdoor area. But it can get noisy as it next to the 12th Main road Indiranagar which is always crowded. I love quieter places; hence I always end up inside.
They ambience is very warm and comfortable. The yellow lights and the wine cellar pillars add a romantic touch. If you want to take someone out on a date, this place would definitely be a good choice. The staff is always nice and the service is quick.
We placed our ordered for Mozzarella Fritta for the starters or should I say ‘Antipasti’. For the mains, we went with Gratin Di Verdue and Tortellini Di Gamberetti.
We didn’t order wine this time but they have a good collection. If you love your wine, you should check out their list and the servers may even help you choose one.
As we waiting for our Antipasti, they served a complimentary Bruschetta, but you have to put it together yourself. For people who never visited Chianti, here is what you should do! They will serve you a platter with bread, garlic, basil leaves and roma tomatoes. First, take the garlic and brush (more like grate) over your bread. Then take basil leaves repeat the process followed by tomatoes. Viola! You’re done, enjoy you’re the fruits of your labour! If you are still confused, please ask the servers there they will be happy to help.
The Mozzarella Fritta are deep fried mozzarella dressed with balsamic vinaigrette. I felt the little drizzle of balsamic vinegar’s sweet-tart flavour lifted the dish. The fritta’s were nice and crispy and oozed with cheesy-stretchy mozzarella. Cheese Heaven! They also gave us a complimentary bread basket. I love eating warm bread dip in olive oil & balsamic vinegar! Yummm…
Gratin Di Verdue was a pleasant dish. Loads of vegetables baked in creamy tomato sauce with melted mozzarella on top served with pesto-bread. I liked this dish as I am a veggie lover but for someone who hates too many vegetables this may not be a good choice. The downside of the dish was the zucchini. For some reason, it was extremely bitter. I ended up leaving it out. On the flip side, the creamy sauce was quite nice.
I loved the Tortellini Di Gamberetti more. Fresh homemade pasta cooked with tomatoes, basil, olive and parmesan cheese. This dish was also served with pesto-bread. The pasta cooked ‘Al Dente’. This dish had simple flavours with just enough sauce. It was a pleasant dish and I was happy with it.
We didn’t order a pizza this time, but they are fantastic! They are thin crust pizza with many options to choose from! We didn’t order the dessert but I am sure it will be good! But this place can be a bit pricey, hence don’t visit it as often.
Overall, the dinner was fun thanks to my husband. It’s always a perfect setting with good food with even better conversations!
