Chianina Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Located in the Naples area of Long Beach, Chianina Steakhouse is a venture of Michael's Restaurant Group, which operates Michael's on Naples Ristorante two blocks away as well as three Michael's Pizzeria locations. The concept is an upscale boutique steakhouse named after the Italian breed of cattle originally used for bistecca alla fiorentina. Comfortable seating at the bar greets guests for creative cocktails, a simplified bar menu or full menu should they choose. The dining room is dim, but targeted lighting ensures that the tables and booths are not in shadow. Recording studio soundproofing materials on the walls and ceiling afford diners some peace and quiet. (Request the corner alcove booth for extra privacy.) Thoughtful touches like these, along with effective service, contribute to a pleasant experience. Starters include crispy pork belly, Piedmontese beef carpaccio, oysters and crudo. The restaurant teamed up with a domestic rancher to raise their own Chianina herd, which provides an exclusive source for this high-quality beef. In addition, Piedmontese and Prime steaks are offered with various sauces. The bone-in rib-eye is a particularly fine choice; pair it with the Yukon gratin and mushrooms with thyme. Don't miss out on the banana pudding with macadamia nut crumble. Chef David Coleman and his team will change the menu on a seasonal basis with daily market-driven updates. An effort is made to source ingredients from Farm Lot 59, an organic farm in nearby Signal Hill. General Manager Alejandro Duran oversees a young but growing wine list that includes craft beers and ciders. The “Wine-O-Matic” section features several selections available in two-, four- or six-ounce servings.
