"Chiara offers fine dining for the suburbs, without the pressure of having to dress up." "The bistro menu is classy and well rounded. It changes every six weeks, so you can count on fresh seasonal fare." "Chiara in Westwood is so handsome with warm woods and square lamps... the modern exhibition kitchen under glowing spotlights is a reminder that you’re there to eat. Fine touches include an elegant waiting area, a fireplace, and an alcove bar."
Overall ranking - Gourmet Greatness -Phantom Gourmet

"I swear having dinner at Chiara tonight feels like what I imagine Pentecostals do when walking out of church" - Nicole S., Westwood

"The restaurant... has the scale, colors, and textures of a well-designed home. LaCount has a sure hand with his cuisine."- Boston Globe

"What was for many years the location of an old-fashioned arts and crafts shop in Westwood has found new life on the cutting edge of Mediterranean cuisine...the atmosphere is high in style, with a staff both friendly and professional."
- Brenda Marchand, Boston Globe

"...a perfect example of the nexus between local fine dining and friendship - the kind of social connections that make the suburbs work for people like us."-Angela Lin, Boston Globe

"...nice touch that reflects Chiara's sensibility of pleasing the customer rather than showing off. That's an attribute that probably helped LaCount's country club career and should serve him well at his own restaurant."
-Boston Globe

"Chiara, a Mediterranean Bistro in Westwood, MA is turning heads big time." "Chiara is sophisticated, modern, and positively buzzing... We loved the open kitchen, inviting opportunity to watch the Chefs exhibit their incredible craft"
" guessed it Platinum Plate!!" -Billy Costa


"If this is what the food was like when chef-owner Steve LaCount was at The Country Club all those years, then maybe we should've gone to medical school after all." - Boston Globe
