Spiaggia was recommended by my 5* hotel. I was underwhelmed. Had the five course tasting menu with premium wines. Very mean portions on the food and especially the wine. And I'm someone used to small portion tasting tasting menus. Service friendly enough, atmosphere OK (a...More

At the end (or beginning) of Magnificent Miles, right by the lake, across the street from Westin, inside an office building. Private rooms are ideal for business dinner Lovely view, delicious dinner, good service. Love everything!

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.

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.
