Refined Italian cooking dished alongside three-story picture-window views of Lake Michigan make Spiaggia one of the city's top eateries. The tiered dining room guarantees good sight lines from each table. Chef Tony Mantuano prepares elegant, seasonal dishes such as hand-cut spaghetti with fresh Umbrian black truffles, free-range veal chop, or Muscovy duck with sausage and blood oranges. Oenophiles consider the wine list to be scholarly. To really splurge, get the full treatment by opting for the chef's tasting menus for $130 or $235. Or if you want Spiaggia fare minus the luxury price tag, try lunch or dinner at the casual Cafe Spiaggia next door.
