place to “hang out”. Manager Angelo DiFiore and Chef Stefano Castaldo, both natives of Italy, have been wowing the guests with Dinner Shows, entertainers, Daily Specials and superb Wine Dinners.
This summer Chianti is offering theme specials from Sunday through Thursday, helping locals to keep lifestyles up-to-par with special prices that include: Eduardo’s Sunday Sauce, with ribs, sausage and meatballs over pasta, in the family “secret sauce” at just $17.95.
Clam chowder or salad, sautéed vegetables, a whole fresh Maine Lobster, expertly cut, for $19.95. Wednesday is Chicken Cacciatore Night, with Stefano’s hometown recipe and fall-off-the-bone tenderness for only $16.95. The same “tenderness” is found on Thursday night, with Chianti’s
famed Lamb Osso Buco for a low $19.95. You can enjoy these specials into October, bon appetite!
Dinner shows are often held on Wednesday evenings, and feature Rob Davies, Sarasota’s quintessential Sinatra entertainer, and Josepth Spinella singing Pavarotti. You never know who you are going to bump into at a Chianti event. Wine tastings and a full bar with Happy Hours every day bring in big crowds during the summer as well as season.
Hint: try their happy hour appetizer specials and stay for their Early bird Special, every day of the week. Having a party? Take a look at Chianti’s banquet room. Always, plenty of free parking and a real easy-to-find location on Clark Road near Beneva.
Chianti is a Savor Sarasota restaurant for the 2015 version of this popular annual event, from
June 1-June 14. Enjoy a special three-course dinner and glass of wine for $29 per person. Hooray!
