Spiaggia is one of those restaurants that just make you want to tell others about it. Clearly you can see from other reviews that Spiaggia is very, very expensive. And, as I heard from others, there's a new chef who breathed new life into the menu to which I can attest. Okay, now that that's out of the way, onto the goodness.
The service at Spiaggia is impeccable. These folks know how to cater and they do it well. This is the type of restaurant you'd want to dine at for special occasions, important business dinners, an impressive romantic outing or as your one fine-dining experience as a tourist in Chicago.
The food tastes as beautiful as it looks. The menu is well rounded and is designed so you can enjoy 4-5 courses throughout your stay but the portions are not large. Combined they leave you full and satisfied. Additionally, since this is a fine establishment there is no rushing of the courses. You are able to sit and take in your meal slowly...as good food is meant to be enjoyed.
Spiaggia's decor is beautiful. The ceilings are high but it still feels warm. There's lots of glass and tables are not on top of each other, so you can be in your own private world. And, much as things are in Europe, conversational tones are kept low, which again helps you enjoy your time.
Finally, the wine list. There are so many wonderful things to say about the wine list. I dined at Spiaggia with work colleagues who had extensive knowledge of wines. So, we shared some very expensive bottles. That said, my picky and knowledgeable colleagues were quite impressed with the list and I got the fruits of their choices! Overall, two very big thumbs up for Spiaggia.
