Spiaggia has a great location and reputation. The service and attention to detail are excellent. Ingredients are fresh. It is expensive and a bit of the "emperor's new clothes". The food simply is not delicious. The cuisine is an attempt at the imaginative but in...More

We visited Spiaggia for dinner before seeing Hamilton. The decor and food were both very nice. The service was also good. We had the Gnocchi Di Cinghiale with the wild boar ragu and the Branzino.

We had a late night dinner here because another restaurant messed up our reservations. Nothing on the menu really appealed to us. Found it rather expensive for the portions. We ordered some appetizers but were not inpressed with anything. The service, however, was very good.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

The menu itself is relatively small as its focused on fresh daily options. There are a few fish options. The menu is always on the website.
