When my wife get a yen for close-to-Naples-like margarita pizza, we travel to the closest we can get. The burrata was an excellent starter, certainly enough for two to share - hard to get good burrata, but they continue to do it. The pizza was, as it has been, excellent.

To the Pizza Faithful to the Authentic Neapolitan Style, this is the place to come! Spacca Napoli was inspired by the authentic aroma, taste, and craft of pizza found on the streets and the pizzerias in Naples. In fact, the food, wine and service at Spacca Napoli are all designed to reflect southern Italian hospitality and they have done that!... More

When it first opened Spacca Napoli was one of the few places (perhaps in the USA) where you could get a "Verace Pizza Napoletana." Now there are many others, but to my mind SN is still the best for Neapolitan pizza in Chicago. What's more the quality of the ingredients in the pizzas and he other offerings (primarily antipasti) are... More

We were looking for a "real" pizza in Chicago and found Spacca Napoli. The service was outstanding and the pizza was delicious. We ordered the Bufalina accompanied by a nice bottle of Nepente di Oliena and finished with a Mirto. I would eat here again, and again.

Wanted to get our Italian Pizza on so we thought we would check out Spacca. Really good pizzas here with some really good wines on the list. Some of the best Pizzas I had during my time in Chicago.

No Chicago deep-dish pizza here, only pure Italian style! At Spaccanapoli you'll find traditional pizzas as well as very particular daily-specials with local and high-quality Italian ingredients only. We also enjoyed several appetisers (prosciutto e bufala and insalata di mare) and the desserts (you will love Tiramisù!). Downsides: it is in the north of Chicago (very far from the center),...

You know it's a fabulous pizza place when you look are waiting for a table and 2 Italian men are building a new pizza oven in the next room. I went there for lunch with family who live in the neighborhood. Great sauce, simple crushed tomatoes, not over done and incredibly fresh. I had the funghi pizza. It evoked memories... More

A wide variety of pizzas that are unique. Very fresh ingredients and some of the best pizza sausage I've ever eaten. The crust is just the right thickness and very tasty.

My wife and I grabbed lunch here and the pizza was awesome! We had one with sausage and mushrooms. The Margherita looked good too. We couldn't believe how fast we got our meal. We started with a caprese salad and it was also very good. Would return!

Thank webb16
