This romantic Magnificent Mile restaurant, an influential part of the Chicago dining since 1984, features the award-winning Italian cuisine of celebrity chef Tony Mantuano. Spiaggia, which means "beach" in Italian, overlooks Oak Street beach, and the airy dining room is tiered, so every table has a view of the Lake Michigan. Mantuano's inventive menu emphasizes fresh ingredients imported directly from Italy, with seasonal highlights including bison ravioli, wood-grilled monkfish, and lobster risotto. The Italian-centric wine list is tailored for cheese pairings—fortunate since the restaurant's Cava di Stagionatura (cheese cellar) features dozens of perfectly-aged Italian cheeses.

Insider Tip:

For a real treat, consider ordering the Venetian tasting menu, which features an artful array of dishes inspired by the cuisine and high culture of Venice
