January in Chicago was bitterly cold. Walked the few blocks from the Peninsula Hotel to Spiaggia, but definitely felt the cold. The restaurant was quiet. It was a Thursday night, and the cold probably kept many away. But, the staff were excellent, and the tasting...More

The food and service here is excellent, but it is expensive. If you're going to this restaurant as part of a special occasion, I think it's worth the money because everything is really well done. The wine list is expansive and the waitstaff is more...More

Spiaggia fine italian dining... an uncommendable establishment. The service is embarrassingly poor and non-complaisant. Undesirable menu, not quite palatable... a total disappointment! Unappealing as it is, disproportionate embellisments could've been executed much much better. To say the least, the Agnello, tender cuts of Lamb Loin,...More

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.
