The Low Down
Know Before You Go: Most entrees hover around $40 a pop, and the tasting menu is $165 per person, plus an additional $90 with wine pairings.
Where to Sit: For the best view, request a table on the lower level by the windows.
Fun Fact: "Spiaggia" means "beach" in Italian. It kind of makes sense when you realize the restaurant overlooks Oak Street beach.
Parking: Spiaggia will validate parking for the adjacent garage at 100 East Walton St. ($24 for up to five hours).
The Extras: Impress friends at your next dinner party by picking up, and preparing dishes from, Mantuano's "The Spiaggia Cookbook: Eleganza Italiana in Cucina."
Know Before You Go: Tasting menus are available, including an eight course "classical" menu of signature dishes ($165). For eight wines to go with each course, add an extra $90.
