Italian
Heralded as a "meat speakeasy" by Food & Wine Magazine, chi SPACCA has come to represent the quintessential new Italian dining experience, where accompaniments like the Foccacia di Recco, warm salted Medjool dates, and Culatello & Puglia burrata are just sideshows for the rest of Chef Armen Ayvazyan's wood-fired menu which features a 42-ounce Tomahawk pork chop, a 36-ounce dry-aged bone-in New York Costata alla Fiorentina, and a 50-ounce dry-aged porterhouse Bistecca Fiorentina.

Enchanted by the artistry of Italian salumi culture, we built the first “dry cure” program in Los Angeles so that we could experiment and perfect Italian charcuterie techniques in house.

    This is my second time dining here, first experience was great. I tried the chicken pot pie, which didn’t have any issues. Second time was good as well. Though there were some small things that were not as positive. This time I tried the beef bone marrow pie, and it was served with the inside layer of the dough raw. The meat and outside of the pie were cooked so it looked fine, but upon eating it, I was just eating a mouthful of uncooked mushy dough with the beef in some parts. I’m not sure if this is how they normally are and understand why this would happen, since it looked cooked from the outside and was flaky too, which was deceiving. It also could have been because of the moisture inside the pie, as I have had the same issue with other savory pies with to wet of a filling. I will be skipping the bone marrow pie in the future and making sure others do as well as overall it was a bit of a disappointment, though the bone made a great treat for my dog. I will definitely be coming back to try the other savory pies as I have tried many savory pies from other restaurants with some having the same issue as this one, and I haven’t found any other higher end savory pie places with the exception of Erewhon, (chicken pot pie, which is also hit and miss sometimes being raw or overcooked). The service was excellent, clean bathroom, nice environment, good menu selection, and good bread. Though the desert variety was a bit small, with only tarts and ice cream.

    Perfect all around! We celebrated our anniversary and an early Father's Day and couldn't have picked a better place. First time for us but most assuredly the first of many. Thanks!

    The appetizers were amazing and you can’t go wrong with anything! The short rib was very fatty and incredibly challenging to cut but the Seafood dish was outstanding.
    chi SPACCAResponded 4 days ago
    Hi, thank you for your review and the high ratings! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed our appetizers and seafood dishes. We understand that the short rib could have been more successfully prepared and we appreciate your feedback. We hope to see you again soon at Chi Spacca! Best, Greer

    Unfortunately while the experience and service was wonderful overall it was strange that the restaurant ran out of at least 3 favorite large dishes by 8 pm on a Saturday night.
    chi SPACCAResponded on June 7, 2024
    Thank you for your wonderful review and for rating us so highly. We're truly sorry about the limited selection of dishes on Saturday night - this is certainly atypical and not our standard. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Very glad to hear your experience overall was still a great success. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! All the best, Greer
