This is going to be very short since there isn't much to say. We made a reservation and got there on time, parking wasn't an issue because they had valet. Food is good but becomes overwhelmingly rich and salty. It's a bit heavy on your palette. We ordered the Foccacio di Recco and the beef, bone marrow pie, and Tomahawk Pork Chop. Again, all very good. Just too salty. In the end I ended up taking more than 75% of the meal home because it was just too much salt for one night.

Meat, meat, meat. This is one of the best meals I've ever had. Our favorite was the beef and bone marrow pie, where they make a juicy meat pie in a buttery flaky crust. In the middle of the pie they put a huge bone, and supply you a tiny spoon to scoop out the delicious marrow inside. I'm glad I'm a woman so have a lesser chance of getting the gout...

This place is meat heaven! Be ready to be stuffed. Our second time here was as good as the first. Months ago, we came here for the tomahawk pork chop and we remember it being amazing. This time, we had the lamb. The portions are enormous. I believe it is a temporary item called the "Moorish" Lamb Shoulder Chop which was actually three types of lamb cuts in one dish. We came here as a couple and you can only get one entree to share. We also had the salumi for a starter which was also really great. A nice way to get into more meat. This place is probably best for a big group so you can try more things. Parking is a pain. Be prepared to park a few blocks away... Good to do that since you'll need to walk off the food coma anyway.

Amazing amazing amazing but WAY too much food for two people. I think that chi SPACCA is a place best for 4 people or more. We went tonight for my boyfriend's birthday (just 2 of us) We started with the Salumi type plate. Everything on it was delicious. We saved half to bring home. We then had their special Focaccia that is like a cheese pizza in the most basic of descriptions. But it is so much more than that. We saved more than half to bring home. For dinner we had the Porcini crusted spare ribs and the beef and bone marrow pie. holy crap. DELICIOUS. Every single bit of both dishes was amazing. I brought home more than half of my pie and almost all of the spare ribs were eaten. We didn't even look at a desert menu. This is now in my top to restaurants in LA to go to...erm well 3. chi SPACCA, Lucques, and Connie and Ted's. All of them conveniently are located in the same general area of weho too. Damn, why can I not afford a home in weho?? Oh, I should say, that for all that food and no alcohol we spend $138 - I think that's very reasonable for the quality and amount of food!! Please go there SOON!

Went here for my bf's Christmas present and we both LOVED the Pollo alla Diavola su Crostone, best roasted chicken we have ever had, and we've had a lot of chicken. Definitely order the focaccia and the butter lettuce added a nice touch. Good pacing with the entrees but could be a little too dark.

Meat lovers will be very happy, dining at Chi Spacca. The staff is attentive, and the ambience, casual and lively. For our mains, we enjoyed the 42oz costata alla fiorentina, and the milk roasted pork loin. The steak was a nice medium rare, very pink, with a great sear. The pork was juicy and tender, with crispy sage atop to complement. The meats were cooked very nicely. Will definitely return again to try a different cut.

Steak: Bistecca Fiorentina Size: 42 ounces Price: $175 The Nancy Silverton/Mario Batali Mozza Industrial Complex has expanded once again with chi Spacca, a restaurant within a restaurant (er, catering space) that serves as a showcase for Chef Chad Colby's considerable skills in the ways of meat. The Bistecca Fiorentina is a tribute to Italian butcher Dario Cecchini, a friend of the restaurant, best known for serving beautifully unadorned slabs of beef in Chianti. It's a wood-grilled T-bone, served simply and sliced for everyone at your table to enjoy. Be prepared to spend some time on your appetizer, though, because the sheer size of this beast means you're waiting the better part of an hour for it to even reach an edible rare.
