The closest to Naples I've ever had!

I've visited Naples multiple times while living overseas. When out in Naples I would always get to margarita pizza. So when I visited this place I also got the margarita pizza to compare. I've traveled all around the United States trying to find the same taste that I got while in Naples Italy. This... read more

Had octopus that kept us entertained for awhile since it was super tough. Napoletana pizza's weren't that good. Way to gummy.

This place is consistently excellent, welcoming and fun. It is tucked away in the residential area called Ravenswood - seemingly far from the hubub of downtown, but it can easily be reached by taking the blue line to Montrose, followed by an easy 1 block walk. The pizza is a thin crust Neopolitan style, made with authentic ingredients and baked... More

The menu, the pasta, the service, the pizza is perfect. I have tried the other places in the city and they aren't even close. I think Spacca should train Eataly on how to make pizza.

Nothing like you imagine. The pizza is totally different from anything I've ever tasted. It had nothing processed. The toppings were unique. Every ingredient was hand chopped, fresh, etc. The cheese was so creamy. Then it was baked in a wood fired oven. The servers come out and tell you about the daily specials. They have real knowledge of the... More

We had another great dinner at Spacca Napoli. We love the margerita pizza with mushrooms called the Fungi. The Persecco and red wine were great. I really like the seafood salad made with poached fish like shrimp, cuttlefish, octopus, scungilli very fresh and delicious. The fresh tuna salad with caper berries was amazing. We love this place.

This place is in our neighborhood and it is our favorite restaurant in Chicago for pizza. Don't go there if you don't want pizza, there are no other entrees on the menu. Typical Italian look, down to earth, cozy, friendly. Everybody goes there: family, couples, groups of friends. Sitting outside in summer is nice. If you go Friday or Sunday... More

I brought 3 friends, only one of which had had Neopolitan pizza (in Naples!) prior to tonight. We had reservations thank goodness, it was busy. Our server explained the concept succinctly and made great suggestions. We had antipasto misto and caprese for appetizers . We shared a couple of Bufalina pizzas, a Diavolo and the special of the night, can't... More

My husband and I visited here for our lunch and ordered the buffalina pizza. We should have ordered two! Every ingredient was special and the pizza was cooked to perfection in a 900 degree oven. Friendly service as well!

Great crust, good tomatoes and mozzarella. The Restaurant is clean has character (good ambiance) and good service . We like their basic pizzas, but would not recommend the sausage and rapini one, as the quality of the sausage is not par with the quality of the other ingredients.
