Nestled between Mozza2Go and Osteria Mozza, chi SPACCA– Italian for “he who cleaves”– has come to represent the quintessential new Italian dining experience.

chi SPACCA was borne of the wildly-popular family-style salumi night dinners hosted weekly at Scuola di Pizza, the previous occupant of the chi SPACCA space.

Enchanted by the artistry of Italian salumi culture, we built the first “dry cure” program in LA so that we could experiment and perfect Italian charcuterie techniques in house. Open daily for dinner, chi SPACCA is an “ode to meat, beautiful meat.

The intimate dining room has a warm glow, with candlelit tables surrounded by walls lined with wine. It’s a vegetarian’s delight and a meat-eater’s heaven.  

chi SPACCA has been decorated as one of the country’s best new restaurants by GQ, Esquire, Bon Appetit, and Time Out LA as well as one of Los Angeles Magazine’s 75 “best restaurants” in LA.
