Wow!

THIS is what a real pizza is meant to be like! I am a huge pizza enthusiast and try to eat one in every city I visit.

Having grown up in Chicago I have had many a pie in my time. I went here with friends and my wife. We started with Antipasto Misto and the Poplo Grigriato. The cold cuts on the Antipasto Misto were good but not exactly top of the line. This was especially true of the Prosciutto. The cheese was a much stronger... More

If you're looking for authentic style Chicago deep dish pizza, keep on looking because this is not it. If you your looking for authentic, super tasty napolitean thin crust pizza, this is your spot. The pizza is first rate. Everytime I go here, I literally want to try everything on the menu. The non-pizza dishes and wine selections are also... More

And it was just as delightful as the first time. Six of us shared an appetizer made with eggplant, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella followed by three varieties of pizza. Everything was delicious and then we got desserts which were also fabulous. The tartufo, panna cotta, and tiramisu never disappoint. I will be sad when I no longer have a reason... More

Spacca Napoli is one of the best places for pizza in Chicago, especially when it comes to authentic Napolitan pizza. This is one of two VPN certified pizza places in Chicago, which means they make their pizza exactly like they do in Naples. I highly recommend the Bufalina. We also had the burrata for an appetizer which they import from... More

Menu had a nice selection of Italian ingredients (tartufo, mozzarella di bufalo, etc) cook in a wood fired oven. Well worth the trip.

Our Italian friends first told us about the restaurant. The pizzas are just like the ones we had in Italy, super thin crust. They are personal sized. (maybe 6 in?). Everything we had was tasty. I've had lots of tiramisu but I think this was the best I've eaten. Will be back there for sure!

A+ ingredients makes this my favorite Neopolitan pizza place in the country ...or at least on my top 5 list. Everything they do, they make perfectly and cook with love and respect. The same staff has been there for years which is always a great sign and the owner proudly pops around the floor with a smile. Do not miss... More

...to any other grape in the world. That's the description of one of the wine choices on the wine menu. How could we pass that up? We weren't disappointed. The red was the color of molasses and had a very rich, full-bodied taste. The different pizzas and the mozzarella with crusty bread were good. I wasn't doing the ordering and... More
