[Chicago Pizza News] New Neapolitan Pizzeria is Coming to Chicago

Fans of the original Spacca Napoli can rejoice. According to Chicago Magazine, Spacca Napoli's first pizzaiola is opening a new, 110-seat Neapolitan menu in Lincoln Park in January.

Nella Grassano and her husband Frank are joining forces with Scott Harris, owner of Mia Francesca, to open Nella Pizzeria Napoletana at 2423 N. Clark in the former home of Fiesta Mexicana.

This place is so serious about their pies that they are bringing in real live Italians to build the oven.


  1. Well, that's what Spacca Napoli did for their oven also.

  2. you are right but nella pizzeria will have a napoletana pizzaiola as the chef and owner making every pizza

  3. SpaccaNapoli is not owned or run by an Italian. I look foward to the Grassano's pizzeria.
