|Spacca Napoli||(773) 878-2420||Donating Flat Fee||Dinner||
Spacca Napoli is a Premier Sponsor for Dining Out for Life! Thank you!!
Spacca Napoli has been lauded for its authenticity (see “http://spaccanapolipizzeria.wordpress.com/press-2/press/“). “La tua pizza me ha fato piangere” (your pizza has made me cry) can be said to sum up some of the sentiment that has been heard and written. It is the intention that everything at Spacca Napoli be faithful to tradition, from the high quality of the food to the way it is served. The oven was built by third- and fourth-generation artisans from Napoli. The dough mixer also comes from Italy.
But just as important, for all who work or eat at Spacca Napoli, there is a delicious, comforting feeling of warmth and family that is part of the atmosphere and charm. The decor is reminiscent of classic Italian pizzerias, yet is contemporary and filled with light. Spacca Napoli strives to be a neighborhood place but it is also a destination for anyone who wants to taste genuine Neapolitan style pizza.
