Beef.... if you crave it.This is the place to come to satisfy your meat eating desires. This is not the place to dine if you are looking for a vegan meal, or are overly worried about counting your calories. The emphasis here is on meat, and the chefs have it down to a science. Small, intimate dining room, excellent wait staff (exemplary service), was very impressed with the wine pairing they provided; all in all a restaurant I would heartily recommend.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMmeat cleverThis place was amazing, the hostess was great, she loves what she does for a living. The chef was great too.
Love the 42 oz steak and the bread amazing.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best food in LAHad dinner here a month ago and couldn't wait to come back. Every course is exquisite. The chicken Diavolo was so good I had to have it again. So moist and spicey. The short ribs were tender and full of flavor. Don't miss the olive oil cake.
Can't wait to come back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWowMy wife and I had our anniversary dinner here, along with two friends. The charceturie plate was astonishing. The steak florentine was sublime. The service was spot on. I was less than thrilled with the wine we had selected for us in the mid-level wine pairing. We got 4 glasses, 2 of which were 1/2 pours. Other than that it was perfect.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a tiny, cozy restaurantThis is a tiny, cozy restaurant with a limited menu. But what they do, they do really well. The chefs cook right in front of you, a little like being over at a friends place for dinner as opposed to a restaurant. One word of warning, much of their menu has pork in it.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experienceWe had a great experience dining at chi Spacca. Everything from beginning to end was outstanding, including our appetizers, the entrees and desserts. And the service was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss ThisCome hungry! Don't miss the lardo mantecato or the affettati misti, for starters. Stick around for one of the best entrees you'll ever have. Chef Colby is a master with meat. The Tomahawk Pork Chop is one of the best dishes ever to touch a plate. Great small venue for an intimate feel and the staff is impeccable, as you'd expect. Have never been even remotely disappointed in a meal within any of these Bastianich/Batali/Silverton restaurants. They know how to please customers.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMeat the meatloved the platter of their cured meats-- affettati misti (no prosciutto this visit, though ;/) I tasted them and they were nice...
I got the pickles as my main appetizer... and the spumanti we had as the first drink was surprising and yum! I would want to have it at home :) In fact, that summarizes my visit here--definitely surprising and yum!
For the main course, we shared the beef and bone marrow pie... wowsers... I don't eat much wheat and meat due to health concerns, but this was worth eating :) The crust had the perfect balance of give and gently resistant texture...the meat/mushroom middle was balanced and wonderful savory...and the standing bone marrow in the middle made me smile.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent - go already!We ate early so it might get noisier as the night progresses -- everything was delicious and fantastic. Service was excellent, this is now my favorite of the Mozza restaurants.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals we haveOne of the best meals we have had in Los Angeles in 25 years. The Diavolo chicken was moist and perfectly spicey and we can't stop talking about the olive oil cake!
Can't wait to go back4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for chef watchingOne of the best dinng experiences in LA we've had in many years. We sat a the counter ,and watched the chefs do their magic with pork, lamb, and short ribs. It was fun to ask them questions as they grilled. The quality of the meat was superior and made the meal. The space is small yet tavern esqu. I found no weaknesses , save that they did not have the tomahawk or the duck, and we were there a the opening. It would be nice to assure the presence of their signature dishes. Although we also love the osteria and pizzeria, chi spacca is the true gem of the 3 in this complex4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent if you're into houseExcellent if you're into house cured meats and expertly crafted terrines! We also enjoyed a great cut of pork from under the shoulder that was cooked to perfection! This place keeps the standard of the other two Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza establishments nearby. The tiramisu was also excellent and the first I really enjoyed (not the biggest tiramisu fan but I've tried it at a number of high end restaurants before!.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find-- wonderful food!Outstanding food and service!! Small, intimate restaurant with a great vibe. Service is friendly and professional. Very impressed!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLast whole hog dinner.We went to the last hog dinner. This was our third time for this meal along with several meals at the Friday seasonal dinners. We are sorry to see them go. Chef Chad always did an outstanding job.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Interesting menu, excellent food and wine, very gracious service. A real addition to the neighborhood.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMwe really dug this place.we really dug this place. great smells of smoke cooking, jazz background music, knowledgeable wait staff. All the meat items we tried were exceptional, amberjack fish too fishy tasting-only thin we didn't like The whole vibe of the place is like a little New York Gem
Definitely will be back, but not too often as the price point is higher than we are used to.
We had a guest and she was blown away with the whole experience.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMChad Colby's charcuterie aloneChad Colby's charcuterie alone is worth the price of admission.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!
