"A Great Italian Restaurant, Reasonably Priced."

Our Story


Established in 1983, Chianti Café has offered wholesome,

delicious Italian cuisine and great service at a reasonable price.


Chianti Cafe is located in the historic "old Post Office" building in Old Strathcona,

Edmonton's entertainment and theatre district. Close to downtown and the University of Alberta,

Chianti Cafe is conveniently located for a business lunch or a quick bite before an evening show.


Casual, bustling, Italian, we're a "from scratch" restaurant so all our dishes are made fresh to order.

Thus, we're happy to accommodate dietary concerns. For example, we have gluten free corn pasta

for customers on gluten free diets and half portions are available on most menu items.


We strive for consistency in all areas.

This commitment to quality has earned us the recognition of being voted:


"BEST Italian Restaurant"

in a past Edmonton Journal readers poll


One of Canada's top 100 RESTAURANTS

In Air Canada's EN ROUTE Magazine


At Chianti we are proud of the fact that several staff have been with us

for many years and share the same commitment to our continued success.


At Chianti we also believe that part of our success comes from our commitment

to the communities in which we are located. Our restaurants are extensively involved

in the support of community events in each respective city.


In Edmonton, a large area of focus has been supporting the arts.

Chianti is a long standing sponsor of The Fringe Theatre Festival, The Works Festival,

The River City Shakespeare Festival, The Edmonton Folk Festival,

The Street Performers Festival, Workshop West Theatre and many more.


In 1996 Chianti Cafe received the prestigious:


'Award for Sustained Support' (of the arts)

at the Mayor's annual awards for business and the arts.


We also work with athletic organizations, primarily University of Alberta Athletics,

Juventus Cycling Team, and the Cycle-logic Triathlon Club.


As well, we are very proud to raise funds in support of

the Stollery Children's Hospital through our kids menu.
