I was in Chicago to have a reunion with some friends and decided to treat them to a fine dining experience. Since I have not been to many Michelin rated restaurants, I figured I would try to find one. Spiaggia quickly jumped to the top of the list after doing some research on my friends tastes. We were six total and were seated promptly. Then began the service. We were not seen by the waiter for another 10 minutes. Everyone ordered a drink including a coke. I know I know a coke seems out of place here, but let's be real, this should be easily accommodated. Everyone but my coke loving friend received their beverage. He had to wait for another 20 minutes and that included 2 prompts by us to various waiters to get that damn coke. This was a recurring theme throughout the evening. When our meal was done and we ordered dessert. Again we all received our order except one person. We had to prompt them about it and they ended up comping that particular dessert. In the end the food was pretty good but the service was incredibly lacking. Especially for a restaurant with such high credentials.

Nice restaurant with beautiful design, but too much pricey for what they served. It looks like that they try to do like 3 Michelin stars with very small portions and very high prices... If you prefer something more simple, go the "cafe" and enjoy the "pasta"!

Hummm I expected so much more. The place was empty on a Tuesday and to be honest considering such my food should have been hot when it arrived. Don't even remember what I had by the time I am writing this so,... not sure I would rank it a "best restaurant" in Chicago. Weiner Circle is more notable, in its category.

I can not say enough good things about this restaurant. The food is fabulous and the service is top notch! The wait staff is knowledgeable about the intricacies of the dishes and the flavors are amazingly thought out and superb.

Incredible spot! Michelin resto that really deserved their star! The steak dish was unreal- I could have cried it was so good! Wish they had more moderately priced wines but I guess at a place like this you should expect to drop some big bucks. Well worth it though!

Came here for lunch during restaurant week - loved each dish! There were three of us, and we ordered one of everything on the menu. Standouts were the pasta dishes, for sure. Fresh ingredients, excellent service! What a great spot for a fancy lunch. Looking forward to trying the regular menu soon - everything looked and smelled divine.

I've only been to Cafe Spiaggia, but everything was amazing. My favorite dish was the wild boar ragu. My friend also really liked his chicken liver mousse. The cafe is cute and cozy with nice views of Michigan Ave.

I went for restaurant week, so I can only speak to that. (One person in my party ordered outside the RW menu and got a pasta dish--it looked and was reportedly tasty, but...well, it was a lot of money for pasta.) We tried a few different dishes. They were not things on the regular menu, which isn't a great sign for RW. The ingredients were small and not great (e.g., chicken thighs). The mozzarella and prosciutto app was tasty, better than the entree. The desserts were also good, a choice of 2 or 3, and a substantial amount of dessert (too much fo one person each, actually). The gelato was good, and the zeppoli were reportedly also good, although I tried them and they weren't as warm or as soft as I'd have liked at that point. Service was okay, a bit slow, but better than rushing us. They held our table a few minutes, which was nice of them. The wine was really over the top in terms of price, which is of course how they still turn a very tidy profit on RW (that and the inferior food). Not sure I'd go back for RW or otherwise, although if friends wanted to I'd be fine with it.
