Chianina Steakhouse starts with great steak, but that’s not where it ends. We’re intimately connected to our Italian culture, and when you dine with us, we want you to share in that connection. It’s about tradition. It’s about enjoying life and sharing good meals, good wine, and good experiences. This is the spirit in which we serve our signature steak, the bistecca alla fiorentina—to be shared among friends. Chianina is more than a steakhouse. It’s a carefully curated menu resulting in a creative culinary experience.
