A concept by the incredibly talented Chef Nancy Silverton, chi SPACCA is Italian for “she (or he) who cleaves.” chi SPACCA Riyadh brings together a Californian flair with Tuscan flavours and aims to bring a quintessential new Italian dining experience to the heart of Riyadh.

The venue aims to be an “ode to meat, beautiful meat,” and amazingly seasoned fish dishes too served with the freshest of veggies, and beautiful salads too. So, it’s safe to say there’s a little something for everyone in the space. The restaurant’s counterpart in LA is often known as a “vegetarian’s delight and a meat-eater’s heaven.”

A memorable getaway to Italy brought forth Çhef Nancy’s love for the ingredients and culture of the region. And when you walk into the space, you can feel the love and warm embrace of air from the grill. Sounds super homey to us.

The intimate dining room has a gorgeous exposed brick wall, a chill atmosphere, an open kitchen where you can watch your meat being grilled right in front, and a dry-ager too. Sit down to dinner and you’ll be greeted with different kinds of handpainted plates for each course.

It surely is an experience to remember, so don’t forget to book your spot ASAP.

chi SPACCA, Via Riyadh, Al Hada, daily 3pm to 2am. @chispacca.sa
