What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.2

Chi Spacca in Hollywood is one of our favorite places to get excessive in LA. This involves a lot of meat.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

An all around wonderful evening.
The food was sensational and the service was first rate.
As it was our first time, we tried numerous items and each
one was better than the next. The chicken and porterhouse steak stole the show though. Both were sensational. Although we had no room for desert, we ordered anyways and the budino and strawberry rhubarb
Crostini were both superb. It’s not cheap, but save up your nickels and dimes and GO!

meat here is the main event and it takes 45 minutes on the grill, not much you can do if it comes out wrong. ours was under-done, over salted and arrived pre-cut, so sending it back to the fire wasn't going to improve it. waiting another hour for a new one wasn't an option either.. so we just ate around the edges of the cold gelatinous pink middle of our $80 pork :-/
it was either an off-night or chi spacca is on the slide. on previous visits everything was perfection and the servers were the type who would clock this and take care of it.

Amazing menu, great service, and the food was delicious. We ordered the two types of salami and grilled octopus appetizers to start, and the Lamb chop entree with roasted cauliflower to share between two. Everything was great. The place is very small, and a reservation is a must in order to be seated, but the food was worth it. I can't wait to go back to try the other entrees on the menu.

We had a great experience at chi spacca. It was my husband and I's second time coming and we invited our two friends who came for the first time. Our server Chelsea was awesome. She attended to us very often and was very friendly. Nancy also came by to say hi and that was a pleasant experience.

Have had better experiences here in the past but this time we spent the entire evening trying to find our waitress and the steak was cold which is unfortunate when you’re spending $500.

The waiter was great, the food was good but a little on the salty side. It could have been because we didn’t drink any wine. I’d like to try it again with wine

Salty, oily, unaccommodating are still acceptable but untruthful is not. Careless and unapologetic. Management did acknowledge missteps after asking a lone waitress that was professional for help. Dry aged 28 days New York steak done correctly but full of sinew, disappointing. Overrated and way too sure of themselves.

Incredible food. Everything we tasted was excellent. Large portions which we did not finish. Only problem we had was that we wanted to take home our extra meat, but after we got home we found out that the busboy did not give us our meat. Very disturbing.

We had the pork blade chop, beef short ribs, grilled broccoli and of course the focaccia de Recco. The focaccia was great, flakey texture with creamy cheese. Would have been elevated if it was properly salted. The broccoli on the other hand was too salty, could have also scaled back on the amount of oil used. The pork chop was divine, great charred taste and the seasoning tasted a little spicy to give it that extra kick. The beef short ribs were also good but the cut we had was a little hard to chew. Definitely a place I would come back to. Also appreciated the ice cream and waffle they gave us for our special occasion!
