No longer a hidden gem in the Ravenswood neighborhood in north Chicago. This is authentic Napoli style pizza - thin crust cooked in a wood burning oven with traditional Napoli crust and toppings. They offer red style pizza with san marzano tomatoes and sauce or white pizza with cheeze and veggies. There are also cheeseless pizzas if you have a... More

Spacca makes pizza in the perfect southern Italian tradition. Everything is spot on. Wood burning oven, crust, sauce, cheese, etc. One of the best in North America.

Stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Spaccanapoli is open all day so it is convenient if you are busy running around and don't get a chance to eat until 3pm. Pizzas were very good with a slightly thicker crust which is the way it's done in Naples. Potato croquettes were only okay as the smoked mozzarella... More

We were here last night for the first time. One of our group had been there previously & highly recommended it. My wife & I shared a pizza with prosciutto, mushrooms, black olives, artichokes & it was delicious. It was just the right size for the 2 of us to share, although others in our party ordered a pizza just... More

The pizza is ok, but limited toppings especially given the price. Limited choices outside of pizza. Restaurant can get loud. It is worth checking out, but personally I am not a big fan given the price point and what you receive.

Just the wife & I for this one. She had been here a year ago and wanted to have the burrata appetizer again. Fortunately it was on the special menu the night we were there. Fresh, homemade buffalo mozzarella with crestini bread & a little olive oil. Fabulous! Shared a salad & a pizza afterward. Probably our fault we aren't... More

Really comfortable spot where the staff aims to please. Pizza is very good... very Naples. I prefer a pizza with a more crisp crust, these are soft (as they should be for the style). A lot of care is used to use extremely high quality and fresh ingredients. Very nice.

If you always wanted to have an authentic pizza Napoletana but can't justify going to Italy look no further than Spaccanapoli in Chicago. The pizza is as good as any pizza in Napels Italy, I know because I was raised in Napels and visit often. My favorite is the original Margerita however al of their pizzas are outstanding made only...

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