About Us

OUR STORY

CHK Ristorante is an independently owned restaurant situated in Chichester, surrounded by one of West Sussex’s areas of outstanding natural beauty and merely a few miles from the stunning sandy shores of West Wittering beach.

We have been open since 2018, and have become well known for our freshly made pizzas, pasta and Italian inspired dishes. Using the finest Italian ingredients from a local Italian supplier, our pizzas are made from scratch and by hand by our very own Pizzaiolo Dorieli and his team, as well as creating delicious, fresh pasta dishes for you to enjoy. We pride ourselves on using fresh, seasonal produce. Because of this our menus change frequently – there’s always something new to try!

ABOUT OUR COMPANY

We are open 7 days a week, so whenever you fancy lunch or a night at CHK, we’re ready for you!

We focus on great service and our friendly, knowledgeable staff are on hand to explain the menu and recommend dishes for you. Combined with a lovely, cosy décor and great atmosphere, we offer an experience that motivates customers to return again and again.

We hope to provide a real culinary experience at CHK focusing on bold, delicious flavours. It is our intention to give you authentic Italian recipes with a modern twist that will delight the senses, because good food does more than fill you up, it brings people together.

Only the best

All of our pizzas are made from fresh,homemade dough following Dorielli’s traditional Italian recipe.

The recipe lets the dough prove for at least 24 hours until it reaches maturation, where the gas and alcohol is released and gives the dough its delicious flavour, as well as reducing the sugar in the carbohydrates.

All our pizza bases are pulled by hand and each pizza is made to order using fresh ingredients. The bases are then topped and baked at 350°C. Just like the pizza dough and ingredients, we only use fresh pasta on our menu that are beautifully paired with light but flavoursome sauces.

A work colleague recommended CHK, so thought we should go. Wanted to book for a Saturday night, managed to get booked but a little earlier than we wanted as they were fully booked. It quite a small place inside but I must say the food was amazing, we had a sharing plater to start then we both a pizzas for mains and tiramisu for dessert. Up there with the best I've had and would recommend. The service was a little slow but for us that wasn't a problem as we weren't in a hurry. Once the weather get better they have a lovely outside space which we will try.

Unfortunately a bad experience with the staff and chef calling us a liar. The food I must say is very good but ordered extras on the pizza which were not on there. We spent £90 and quibbled over £3..argumentative staff is never a nice experience, such a shame we won’t return as the food as good. Maybe a new manager and chef, waiting staff very nice but Disappointed by the management and chefs attitude.

Nice food, very loud inside, quite expensive and only two hours at table which isn't very when your waiting a while for service.

Stopped for lunch and ended up waiting an hour for two pizzas, and then one of them was missing the main topping. Got a refund for the wrong pizza when we asked, but pretty poor service.

Don't go there I wasn't impressed with the service or the taste of the food, or being lied to.was told that we can't have pasta as the chefs having a break, for an hour which is ok but very strange as was a large party of people on a table behind us, obviously had booked, I wanted the pork fillet but was told they don't have any so really what they should have said was were only serving terrible old pizzas, to you. But the people behind you can have what ever they want, even the pork because by magic they had it.. it was a long long time before we got our terrible pizza, it's a shame as we would have frequented there and told our friends but we hate being lied to and patronised, don't go there terrible .

Unfortunately this was a very disappointing visit. On the phone we were told we would have a table inside. When we arrived we were told we had to sit outside. We ordered olives to nibble on while we waited for pizzas, but they never arrived until about 45 minutes after we arrived and only when we chased them. The pizzas arrived after about 1 hour 10 minutes, and after we had chased them. It shouldn’t take over an hour for pizzas in a pizza restaurant. We had somewhere else to go after so this really spoiled our evening. When we asked for some sort of gesture the waiter said he would, but still produced the regular bill. When I spoke to him again he said he would have to speak to his manager. The manager then rudely kept me waiting whilst he dealt with some paperwork. Eventually he apologised, said they were very busy, gave us some discount. I think part of the explanation is they take takeaway orders as well. Any restaurant should be able to cope with the number of diners sitting in their restaurant, but here they seem to prioritise over their dining customers!!

Booked a table and added notes to the reservation that we had a small well behaved dog that we were bringing with us and wanted to sit inside. The reservation was booked more than a month ago. Queued up at the door to introduce ourselves to be met by a loud and rude voice from the far end of the restaurant, “you can’t bring your dog in!” I told one of the waiting staff that I made it quite clear that we were bringing our dog and didn’t want to sit outdoors. She agreed and said that she had called twice that day. I asked why no message was left and was told their phone system was new and she had no idea how to leave a voicemail.We decided to go elsewhere for food but what use is being told the same day dogs are not allowed in their restaurant.So if you’ve got a dog and want to sit in the restaurant, don’t waste your time.We went to a place called the Bosham Inn and they had no problem with dogs, and the food and service were second to none. I highly recommend going there.

One of my favourite pizza places around. A wide range of options with whatever toppings you can think of. Attentive service and nice inside and outside (weather permitting) seating options.

Had the best evening dining here, our waiter (Eddie) was very knowledgeable and even gave us wine tasters as we were contemplating which to order. We both were very impressed by his warm and welcoming demeanour. The food was phenomenal, we couldn’t decide so shared two plates. The coffee and ice cream was also outstanding. Can’t wait to visit again. Quiet, laid back atmosphere, beautifully decorated and staff who care. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Extra appreciation for our server Eddie!! He ‘made’ our experience 🙌

Decided to go with a friend who loves Italian food and CHK didn't disappoint! The food was fantastic and service on point. Venue is delightfully different to chain restaurants and looking forward to trying it in the summer, when the outdoor section will be great. Will definitely go again!

Good pizzas and pasta, call ahead to book a table! The patio area is nice but in chilly weather needs some windows or PVC curtains to keep the wind off.

Possibly the greatest pizza and tiramisu I’ve ever had! The meal was absolutely stunning. Everyone at the table enjoyed their dishes and the desserts were also a highlight. Lovely setting for all occasions and lovely team of staff looking after everyone. Will definitely be back!

Stumbled upon this place by chance!Tucked away on the outskirts of Chichester is a hidden gem for amazing Italian pizza (and pasta)!The atmosphere was great, especially as they've started their summer weekend shenanigans - opposite the car park is a lovely field setup with tables, football goals, DJ and bar.You can order food there or from the restaurant and walk over to the field.The staff are awesome as was the food and ice cold beers (Peroni on tap) - also have a great selection of wines and bubbles (lots being Italian of course).The pizza is paper thin, and the choice of toppings is insane! Oh and it tastes fantastic!Can't wait to return again this summer guys! 😎
