My wife and I have been going here for years and have always been impressed with the quality of the food and the reasonable prices. This time the appetizers all held up to the prior experienced excellence, however a couple of entrees were forgettable, which was a first. Attentiveness of service also seems to have dropped a notch. All in all not a bad experience, but since I only get to Chicago once a year or so, I'll probably check out somewhere else for the next visit.
Great alternative to Spiaggia. Food was excellent and loved the chill ambience. Would def go back!
Great service and food. My wife and I only had Appetizers and dessert which were delicious and too full to have a full entree. Chef Joe made us feel extra special by taking the time to meet with us on our 43 wedding anniversary.
Not at all worth the price. There are much better options out there.
Disappointing visit that didn't meet expectations, especially for food or professional service.
My husband and I dined at Spiaggia Cafe while visiting Chicago. We lived in Chicago for 30 years and had our wedding reception at Spiaggia. We ordered two very dry Martinis to start. They were anything but dry! We asked if perhaps they could add a little bit of vodka to take away from the overpowering vermouth taste. Not sure what they did but they still were not good. Our starters were good, a soup and a kale salad. My husband ordered the Pappardell with braised goat and I ordered the Rotolo. Both were a major disappointment. My husband found a piece of plastic in his dish and my dish was barely warm. We told our waiter who was very apologetic and took our dishes. When he returned my dish was the exact one he took away and only the very top of the dish was slightly warmer. My husband's dish thankfully was without plastic. The manager came over to apologize and took the food off our bill. It was a nice recovery but very disappointing food.
Very dissapointed in overall experience
Party of four with one guest meal not delivered with the other 3 due to error
My lobster spaghetti was tasteless
Wife’s portion of pasta too small
Lobster portion not in tune with price charged
Apps were great
Management tried to make up for their mistakes
Cafe needs to get real with portion sizes and taste
Had high expectations
Will not be back
Beyond delicious food, wonderful service- extremely enjoyable experience
Had a holiday family lunch. Food was great wine selection good and service just right . Good way to start the season.
Our server David was excellent. Best duck in my life!
