Cafe Spiaggia Michelin Restaurant
Welcome to the less formal, more approachable, all-day extension of the Gold Coast’s grande-dame Spiaggia, which is located just next door. The setting of this café is relaxed yet stylish; and dining here is a great way to enjoy unforgettable lakeside views for a fraction of the cost as its older sibling.
Expect a casual menu of simple lunchtime bites and sandwiches that gives way to a more composed yet still appetizing offering at dinner. But regardless of when you visit, house-made pastas are a particular highlight, especially those short tubes of lumache bathed with a rich and rustic lamb ragù. Don’t miss out on generous portions of their fun and creative desserts, like pizzelle cookies sandwiching toasted milk gelato with chocolate hazelnut crunch.
Nestled on The Magnificent Mile, Café Spiaggia is a local gathering spot offering casual Italian fare by Executive Chef Eric Lees. Guests can expect an inviting and lively environment featuring shared plates, handmade pastas, a selection of bottled cocktails. Showcasing a global wine list hand-selected by Sommelier Rachael Lowe, Food & Wine Magazine’s “Top Sommeliers of 2016”, guests will gather together to savor and hang out over great sips, tastes and neighborly hospitality.
