I had the wonderful pleasure of eating at Spacca Napoli Pizzeria a couple of weeks ago.  It's a great find (I was turned on to it and treated by my designer at and I recommend it to anyone who loves an authentic Neapolitan style pizza.  For those who don't know, Neapolitan style pizza (Italian: pizza napoletana) is made with tomatoes and Mozzarella cheese.

We ordered the Bufalina pizza, blended San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, basil and extra virgin olive oil (evoo).  It was superb.

As we were leaving the restaurant, the host offered us a plate filled with miniature cannolis.  What a nice way to end a meal.  We each took one for the road and it was outstanding.

When the nights in Chicago get way too long and chilly, pay a visit to Spacca Napoli Pizzeria for a true Italiano pizzeria experience.  It's like visiting Italy.
