    The thin crust pies can be ordered with traditional red sauce or topped with olive oil, and the quality ingredients like prosciutto, Italian sausage, spicy salami and arugula pay tribute to Italy. Read more

    Spacca Napoli’s is passionate about recreating authentic Neapolitan pizza. But they don't turn up their noses at dietary restrictions. Call ahead and they’ll arrange to make your pie with GF dough. Read more

    The trendier Neapolitan pizza gets, the more you're reminded who does it best in Chicago. Come for Jonathan Goldsmith's perfectly charred pies from his custom-built oven. Read more

    I travel to Chicago from New Jersey specifically about once a month to have this Pizza. I am Celiac and the GF pizza at Spacca Napoli is the freshest and best I have had across multiple states!!

    A custom-built, oak-stoked oven kicks out bubbling Neapolitan beauties with a perfect char in two minutes. Toppings run the gamut from fennel-flecked sausage to bitter rapini to prosciutto ribbons. Read more

    Diavola: The heat is balanced by the cheese and the bright, sweet and mildly acidic San Marzano tomato sauce. The large pieces of fresh basil complete a set of toppings that never fails to satisfy.

    Authentic Neapolitan Pizza as found in Napoli. If pizza there has changed your life like it has mine... then Spacca Napoli is essential for fans of the aromatic characteristics of this pie.

    Who would have thought some of Chicago's best pizza was Neapolitan style? Cited as a favorite among chefs and locals, Spacca Napoli has some of the finest cracker crust in town.

    Excellent pizza. Light and airy, Naples style and they use fresh ingredients. Burrata was also great. My new favorite pizza spot.

    Watch out Coalfire, there's a new Neapolitan style pizzeria king in town. Our appetizers and dinner came out super fast! The gorgonzola pizza topped with Italian sausage and fresh spinach was amazing! Read more

    Best non-thick crust pizza in the city. Don't get an appetizer, though, the oven is so hot, the pizzas will be done in minutes.

    This place has the best authentic wood fired pizzas in Chicago. Tight seating and it's always packed. But it's very worth it

    Loved the host - but don't go on a sunday night. Too few servers & pizzas are really undercooked/soggy because have to pump out so many out so quickly for large crowds.

    Spacca Napoli serves as a soft but strong foundation for more delicate, refined ingredients like arugula and prosciutto to do their thing. Read more

    Mental Note: they will only seat a full reservation party... So make sure everyone shows up together or you will wait for your friends to be seated.

    Agree with Mel K. Specials are the way to go if you are more adventurous. However, as excellent as Spacca's crust is, it does not hold up well to many toppings.

    Pizza here was good. But for the best Neapolitan pizza in Chicago, I still prefer Pizzeria da Nella on Fullerton. I would come back for the burrata and the Nutella dessert, though!
