Chianti Cucina – Novato

This is an update to my earlier post (12/18/11) and review. 

On our most recent visit, Saturday, May 12 our dining experience was  less than anticipated. Plainly stated it was disappointing and mediocre. The waiter was friendly and efficient but the food we ordered fell far below the mark for taste and appeal.

Perhaps it was an off night but, I wonder? The Salad Caprese we shared (tomatoes, Mozzarella and basil) needed a good sprinkle of sea salt before it left the kitchen; the Risotto Del Giorno (of the day) prawn, was bland and colorless; and the house-made lasagna came swimming in a thin and watery, bright scarlet sauce. Not up to their usual standards. Redemption came in the form of a Limoncello Frozen Parfait. Refreshing.

My original rating for this restaurant was 4-Stars. Something has definitely changed and for now I feel it’s 3-Stars only.
