Spacca Napoli

In addition to Tagine, we also tried out another new restaurant Saturday, Spacca Napoli. Located at Sunnyside and Ravenswood, it looks like it's not open if you don't turn down Sunnyside.

Spacca Napoli is a cool little AUTHENTIC Italian pizzeria. We had calamari affogato (in a tomato, olive, caper sauce and quatro formaggi pizza. The place had a really realistic Italian vibe from the San Benedeto Pesche Iced Thé and San Pellegrino Limonata (not to mention Lacryma del Christo and Nino Franco Rustico Proseco by the glass) and pictures of Totó! Food was great. Location is great. We'll be back with friends. Awesome place. I'm sure Natalie will add more later.

I really like this place, as I love authentic Italian pizza. It's so simple and fresh tasting. Jeff saved me on our last trip there -- I ordered a Prosciutto and Arugula pizza not thinking that neither the meat or greens would be cooked. But, Jeff knew my what I mistakenly assumed even as I ordered, and switched pizzas with me when he saw my dissapointment that the meat and greens were piled on top. So, I got his lovely sausage and mushroom pizza, all cooked to perfection in the wood-burning oven. The pizza I originally ordered turned out to be very good, but just not what I had in mind. Luckily I think Jeff enjoyed the pizza despite giving up his. So, I didn't feel too bad taking him up on the generous switch.
