    The food is great here, but I was charged $60 for making a reservation. This is absolutely ridiculous for a restaurant to charge customers to make a reservation especially when they show up. Think twice before making a reservation.

    The last time I dined at Spiaggia was 4 years ago, before the remodel and while the "jackets required" rule still existed. This visit seemed like I was dining at an entirely different restaurant. All the things I loved most were gone: the formal dress with big comfy seats, the lovely bread service and dedicated water server. Whoever was in charge of the finishing salt was very heavy handed; I'd say 5/6 dishes were too salty. Overall, everything was fine and Spiaggia is blending well into the average dining scene. But when you spend $300+ dinner for two at a Tony Montano restaurant, you expect more.

    It was good, but did not live up to the name. Service and ambiance was impeccable, as was the wine list. My fiancé and I ordered the 8 course tasting menu, and while each dish was fine, the price point per person was far too high for what we were given. Most dishes were what you would find at other decent Italian places in Chicago. Also, most of the dishes were too salty and the salmon was under cooked. Three pasta dishes on an 8 course menu led to us being full by the fifth dish. We struggled to make it through dessert. Glad we went, but would not go again at those prices.

    The Italian food was a bit too creative for us. Minimal selection. The Scallops appetizer was very tasty, but small. The pasta was under-cooked, unless that is what the chef is going for. The Veal chop was good, flavorful, but small, and a bit fatty. The banana dessert was lost on us. Unusual presentation, and we did not enjoy the taste combination. Wine list is extensive, but pricey. Service stood out, as it was attentive and friendly. Nice window view. I am sure a more sophisticated palate may appreciate the cuisine.

    My husband and I used to eat here when we lived in Chicago from 1995 to 1998 and this was our first time back. The decor has been redone and it was beautiful, and the cuisine was top notch. I arrived very hungry and my only gripe was that it took a while to get the bread! But I would highly recommend for a special occasion or date night if you’re looking for delicious cuisine and a beautiful atmosphere!

    We loved our meal, except I had asked for a special birthday dessert for my mom. I was told she would receive a card. That didn’t happen. I was also told she would get a really special dessert.... well, it was a pumpkin spice dessert with a single candle. No creative writing on the plate, etc. then, we had asked for our leftovers, but were never given them. By the time we left, we had forgotten & no one reminded us. It was overall a nice evening, I was just hoping for a touch more.

    Impecable service Slow and enjoyable The dishes were perfect temperature. (one of the things I like least is when a dish is so hot you can't taste it) The scallops, though small, were cooked to a tender perfection. So enjoyable. The music was a little too loud and modern for the classiness of the restaurant. I would have enjoyed Dean Martin at a lower volume. (personal preference)

    Impeccable from top to bottom: service, food, and ambiance. It’s not very often one can describe Italian food as surprising, but there were flavors and combinations that were truly surprising and exciting. Everything was clearly prepared with the highest quality ingredients and care. Worth every penny.

    Incredible experience. My wife and I went for our anniversary dinner and we can say easily say Spiaggia earns all of its accolades. We did three courses (tartare, rissotto, steak, carrots, gnocchi). What sets this food apart is that instead of overwhelming you with overpowering flavors, each dish delivers on on each ingredient but are all elegantly shown. Outstanding service and attentiveness.

    Service was great, food delicious. We did the five course tasting menu. Didn’t think every course was 5 Star that is why I gave it a four. Pasta too salty, trout fabulous, duck amazing, dessert just okay but gelato in replacement was super. Carpaccio could have been great but a ridiculously small amount you could barely taste. Bartender makes a wonderful martini and we would definitely return.

    Spiaggia hit a home run ! I took my wife there for her birthday and every minute was special. From the Happy Birthday greeting when we arrived, the pre-dinner drinks with the engaging bartender, the fantastic tasting menu experience, the signed menu by the Chef, and a birthday dessert with a candle. Every detail made this a wonderful dining experience. You can get a good meal at a lot of places in this town, but the overall experience that you get at Spiaggia has no equal.
