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 housemade gnocchi with black truffles, wood-roasted veal tenderloin, or cabbage-wrapped black cod with scallops. Oenophiles consider the wine list to be scholarly. For Spiaggia fare minus the luxury price tag,
