Magnifico!

The best pizza I have ever had outside of Naples itself. Make sure and order the Pizze Bufalina. You will not regret it.

Went there one weeknight with DH - this place has been open for years, and we've always meant to try it. You're not missing much. The pizza is Neopolitan, you have to eat it with a knife and fork, and it's soggy in the middle. That's the way it's supposed to be, and they do it well here. However, their... More

A casual place with surprisingly good food, Spacca Napoli is one of my favorites. I have been here many times since I found it on a Michelin Bib Gourmand list, and the food is consistently great. The pizza crust is served slightly charred, just like in Europe. Ingredients are fresh, seasonal and flavorful. Not exactly Chicago-style pizza, but Spacca is... More

Really nice place, we like the ambiance. After visiting Italy a few weeks ago, we were craving good pizza. Pizza was really good, maybe it needs to be cooked a little it more. It was a little bit soft. Pizza tasted fresh and really Italian. Some places make pizza and Italian food with too many spices. Staff was very attentive... More

This is the REAL deal. Pizza has excellent flavor and ingredients, very much like what one would get in a great trattoria in Portofino, Italy.

We visited here last night, July 23,2015. We've been to Italy & heard a lot about this place reminding people of the pizza in Italy We have to completely agree!! The pizza was light with fresh ingredients. We had the 2 specials for the day--mushroom with pepperoni & salmon with arugula & capers. Both were soo good. The wait staff... More

"Wow" was heard many times being uttered by we five pizza aficionados yesterday at lunch at Spacca. While eating our pizzas we compared and contrasted them to the best pizzas we have eaten in New Haven, New York, Naples, Rome, Peschici, and Vieste among other places. The verdict was that it was not better, but was just as good. Not... More

This is a great take-a-date place. This is not pizza as one thinks of pizza. This is a pizza experience. Be prepared to try something different, be adventurous. These people love food. They go to Italy to find suppliers a few times a year. This is a serious eating experience. That said, it was wonderful. Plan on a pizza per... More
