Meghan and Marlee were amazing to work with planning our wedding reception that turned out perfect! Such an amazingly beautiful space, little decoration is needed because it is so stunning as is. The room overlooks Lake Michigan so the view is breathtaking. The service was exceptional! Everyone raved about the food and we couldn't have asked for any more. I would do our wedding reception here a million times over if I could:) Book here!

We wanted to have food be a priority for our reception so we knew we wanted a restaurant venue. We were pleasantly surprised at the pricing and value at Spiaggia. The event space was perfect for our 80 guests. We were so impressed by everyone who works there. The service was amazing and the food was perfect! All our guests were so impressed with the food and service. We worked with Meghan who was our event coordinator and she was always available and very helpful through the whole process. We highly recommend Spiaggia!

For couples who place a premium on good food and want a real downtown Chicago experience, I highly recommend Spiaggia. The meal was absolutely exceptional, and the service was meticulous. Numerous guests told us it was the best wedding meal they\'ve ever had (and we agree!).\r\n\r\nThe space itself is on the narrow side with a long wall of windows overlooking Michigan Avenue and Lake Michigan -- it\'s spectacular. The decor is neutral (whites and greys), so I recommend using flowers, colored linens, and candles to bring vibrancy and personality to the space, as we did. We also positioned our ceremony lengthwise so our guests looked out at the view, which turned out to be gorgeous during our sunset ceremony.\r\n\r\nThe space was perfect for our wedding of a little more than 100 guests, and I think would work well for up to 130 or so. The staff are very professional and enjoyable to work with. It is expensive, but well worth it!

We booked Spiaggia about 18 months before our wedding because we knew their food is amazing, their service is fantastic, and the drinks are wonderful. We ended up opting for the biggest all-inclusive package because we wanted our guests to have the best meal of their lives and drink whatever they wanted. We worked with Marlee, who helped us every step of the way and really took the time to explain the options we had, the choices we had, and helped us troubleshoot. When we told our other vendors that we were getting married at Spiaggia, they all thought it was a great choice because Spiaggia makes it super easy for vendors to come in and prep the room. We held both the ceremony and reception at Spiaggia so the staff 'flipped' the ceremony space in order to serve the sit down dinner. During that time, we held a cocktail hour in their newly renovated lounge space. Everyone had a blast: they loved the food, thought the cocktails were great, and especially loved the views of Lake Michigan during both the ceremony and dinner. If you can afford Spiaggia, you woud be crazy not to book them. I can't recommend working with Marlee in their event planning division more highly.

I have never written a review before in my life, but I relied so heavily upon online reviews and found them so helpful when vetting my vendors that I feel obligated to pass my experiences on to other brides. My September 2015 at Spiaggia was flawless. I worked with Marlee leading up to the event who was extremely patient and responsive with my numerous questions. She worked with us to customize our package. Specifically, she had her distributor source craft beers for our guests because although we love Italian food, we were none too impressed with the Italian restaurant beer choices (Peroni, Stella, Heineken, Amstel light). Throughout the entire process, I knew I was in good hands. We found out about one week before our wedding that Marlee would not be present the day of our wedding, and instead, Cyndi would be running our event. It did not require any effort on my part to get Cyndi up to speed! She knew exactly what was going on the day of the wedding & ran our event seamlessly. The serving staff at Spiaggia were very gracious & professional. (A few of the staff members even spent some time working out a stain with me in the bathroom with club soda after a guest spilled red wine on my dress.) The food, as expected, was excellent. Several of our guests told us that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Spiaggia made our dream wedding a reality. The only hesitation someone might have about booking Spiaggia is price. But honestly, this is Chicago. Weddings are expensive. And you get what you pay for. If you are looking for quality, you cannot go wrong with Spiaggia. Also, there is no event space rental fee here and tables & chairs are included, which saves money! The only reason this review is not 5/5 stars is because we initially had some difficulty establishing contact with Spiaggia. I called a few times and left voicemails when we were interested in seeing the space, but never received a call back. I did finally send an email, which got a response.

We had our wedding at Spiaggia just less than 2 weeks ago. Words cannot express how happy we were to have chosen Spiaggia for our wedding.. Although it was a rocky start with Marlee we were blessed to have Cyndi coordinating our wedding in the end. She was absolutely wonderful!!!! She was quick to respond and answer any of our questions, recommended the best solutions and went ahead and organized everything with the help of her amazing team! Cyndi was so very professional, responsive, on point, accommodating and personable not only to us but also to our guests. The majority of our guests came from Italy and we wanted to make sure they had the best in terms of service, professionalism and of course the food! This is exactly what we got at Spiaggia!! Our guests were so pleasantly surprised how well they ate and how elegant everything was!! Cyndi and her team did a superb job in fulfilling our dream wedding. Everything was absolutely gorgeous and just how we dreamt it to be. Our guests raved about their meal and how elegant yet simple everything was. Our wedding really represented us as a couple and how we are and Spiaggia did an amazing job in executing it with the help of her fabulous team!! Grazie di cuore Spiaggia siete stati meravigliosi!!!

The food was exceptional, but we knew that going in. You can't go wrong with Spiaggia. Our guests were thrilled with the selections -- definitely not your typical banquet food. Amazing. The only hiccups we experienced stemmed from a change over in staffing and those were minor. Tremendous value in the City. They met our demands with grace and we were very happy with the service!
