Cafe Spiaggia

Restaurants, Italian Streeterville
Photograph: Martha Williams Best Italian restaurants: Caf� Spiaggia and Spiaggia

If you want to dine at Spiaggia but can’t foot the bill, your solution is this adjacent sibling café. The ingredients come from the same kitchen, so they’re just as impeccable, and the attention to regional Italian tradition is just as detailed. The bright, airy room is more casual, prices are lower, and service is less formal, making it a relaxed spot for pasta, like thick strands of bucatini in a spicy ‘nduja sauce. The lunch menu veers casual, while dinner is for dates, as entrees are meant for two—share a whole roasted branzino while taking in views of Michigan Avenue.
