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 Joseph Tagorda's meat-centric 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.

    The food was very tasty but extremely overpriced. Frankly, we had better steaks for much much less. Both my husband and I got sick after our dinner there on New Years, so even though the taste was there, the quality was obviously not.

    A quiet Christmas Eve dinner, the night before the big hectic day couldn’t have been more special. The food was fabulous and the small, beautiful setting was great. Our server was especially terrific. This will be yet another ‘let’s grab dinner at’ (one of the !) Mozza/Nancy Silverton’s for our family.

    Four of us gathered for a business get together. The waitress took exceptional care in going over the menu and explaining it and had recommendations as well. The dishes are family style and shared. Some are rather large and recommended for more than just two people. All he dishes were delicious. It is not an inexpensive restaurant but worth the experience. I recommend it for groups of 4 to 6 people.

    Food is great. Need to go with people who eat meat. It’s steak restaurant. Huge steaks. Cooked on the rare side. They do not cook medium rare . They are very pink. Huge steaks! But good. No sauces. Just seasoned well. My husband and a son love the meat. I like the little Gem Lettuce Salad, mashed potatoes, broccoli, focaccia is to die for. But very oily. I can only eat a little. My husband and son can polish off the entire thing. They just love it. Onion rings are great. Bone marrow pie heavy but delish, finish off the meal with one of their delicious sorbets. It’s the best way to end a meal here. Definitely keep the little gem salad on the table while eating the other dishes bc there is vinegar and lemon and it cuts the fat. From the meat and everything else. Needs that acid. We love to sit at the bar. We prefer it. Fun place great staff, great chef’s

Loved the intimate dining experience, being able to watch the chefs cook right there, and the service was great. We had the 36 oz shared steak and it was decadent!

    Our meal was elegant, tasty, and well presented. My only "beef" (excuse the pun) is that our waitress seemed a bit attitudinal---which was the same experience we encountered at the sister restaurant, Mozza. I guess snootiness is a requirement for help at a Nancy Silverton restaurant. Yeah, i get that Nancy Silverton is a "big deal" for foodies in LA, but everything was "Nancy this, and Nancy that......", as if coming from Mt. Sinai. Plus, questions asked were received with a bit of snobbery, as if "how dare you ask such a stupid question".

    Went for a special birthday celebration and was welcomed by a charming host, wood fired oven and grill flames crackling high and hot. The room is intimate and the ambience warm and inviting. The menu was slightly different from what I’d seen online as the chef probably uses what’s in season. The must have beef and bone marrow pot pie and focaccia de recco were ordered as were the warm olives and pecorino, a melt in your mouth culatello and burrata appetizer, delicious pear and avocado salad, grilled octopus, pepper steak, lamb chops (best ever), lamb sausage, and chocolate mousse and butterscotch budino to end. We also picked a great red wine from their wine bible which was a fantastic complement to the meal. Even the accompanying chick pea puree and crispy chick peas under the tender grilled octopus and the mashed potatoes with the pot pie (you’d think on Thanksgiving weekend we’d be sick of mashed potatoes) were magnificent. The lamp chops (my go to protein) were the best I’ve ever had, perfectly medium rare. The char on the meats added that extra flavor and the Italian influence permeated the meal. It’s best experienced with more than 2 people so sharing is possible. Too many delicious options to choose from. A fantastic experience all around. Kudos, yet again, Chef Silverton. You never disappoint. Thank you
