Best Italian pizza in Chicago - I'm spoiled because this is our neighborhood joint, but it's so incredible. The insalatas are so fresh, the olive oil is mwah, and the pizza itself is so wonderful. When I tell people where I live they always ask..." have you been to spacca Napoli" yet because it's known throughout the city as being so incredible.More

Best Italian pizza in Chicago. During my trip in the city I’ve tried only this pizzeria, but being Italian, I can confirm it! It’s a very Italian pizza, with quality Italian products. The wine chart is good and filled of Italian wine, in particular from...Naples. Location is a little bit far a way from the city center, but is well linked by CTA metro and the neighborhood is very nice and quite, so safe. The dessert are good but can be improved. We tried the spumone and the tartufo, the second one is good, the first one we don’t like. If you’re looking for a very good pizza this is the right place!More

This is a great place to get together with friends and family. Seating is spaced pretty well inside. Everything was neat and clean. One draw back to service was the waiter asked us to keep our knives and forks after eating appetizers. Would have liked...new forks as we had several appetizers. Also, When they brought the 3 uncut pizzas they didn’t provide the pizza cutters and we initially tried to cut with our butter knives and then had to ask for these. The pizzas were all spot on authentic delicious Napoli style pizza. The crust was airy, light and had the perfect chew. The appetizers; arancini balls had a very nice taste with a little peppery kick and cheese in the middle, the barrata (homemade semi soft mozzarella type cheese) was oozing over bread slices and tasted wonderful. Salads were simplistic and were nice with the pizzas and helped cleanse your pallet of flavors from one pizza to the next. Any pizza you order here is going to be great! The pizza sauce is san marzano tomatoes and they are generous with all the toppings. Great selection of wines and perseco (of course!) We weren’t rushed and the noise level was low allowing us to all hear one another’s conversation.More

This is without a doubt the best Neapolitan pizza I have had outside of Europe. It is everything Neapolitan should be. The crust was crispy on the outside yet light and chewy. We had the Bufalino (for a true Margherita pizza) and the Caprese Buratta....The Buratta was the best I have had and the pizza reminded me of my time in Italy. We will definitely be back.More

We grabbed some late night pizza to go and were not disappointed. We ordered the diavola, the sausage pistachio, and the pancetta arugala, and there wasn't a bite left. These pizzas are excellent - perfectly crispy, perfectly topped, perfectly flavorful. We had the burrata as...a starter, and it was also delicious. This is a must stop!More

It was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon and we were looking for patio seating around 2pm. There was ample outdoor seating when we arrived. The host informed us that all the empty tables were reserved and that we had to sit inside “given all their reservations.”...Even inside the restaurant wasn’t that busy. He gave us a table in the window so we had a view of the patio. While we enjoyed our lunch, not a single person was seated out doors. The remaining outdoor tables emptied albeit 1 or 2. It was silly and left us with a frustrated experience. The food was good. Pizza always solid. We live a few blocks away and will now hesitate to come back due to this experience. There are other newer Neapolitan pizza restaurants nearby with better customer service.More

When my wife and I are in Chicago we only eat pizza at Spacca and they have our favorite Neopolitan pizza. This time we ordered something different because Leonardo recommended the pistachio pizza. You are probably thinking exactly what I was when he mentioned it,...what the heck is pistachio pizza? It was really delicious and did not have any tomato sauce on it, just a pistachio cream and sausage. Also ordered a diavalo which was great. The polpo (octopus) was also really tasty. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Give this place a try if you are visiting Chicago and like Neopolitan pizza. Also, their tables inside are very far apart and all staff are masked. They request you put a mask on when the staff approaches your table. I was perfectly fine with this.More

Ordered a Margherita Pizza, and it was just ok. Have had better in many different places, so maybe this one just isn't there best. Might give it a second chance with a different pizza.

Nor have I traveled in Italy. But it has long been known that pizza, as we know it in America is different from that which came from Italy. So what ???? It was GREAT !!!!!
