Yes, we know Chicago has a lot of stellar pizzerias, and you can count Nella among them. This is true Neapolitan pizza. Behind the scenes is Italian-born Nella Grassano, one of only two women in the U.S. to have earned the accreditation of Pizzaiola D.O.C., and Scott Harris, the co-founder and chef of Francesca’s Restaurants. They join a hard-working oven made from volcanic ash and a menu of traditional Neapolitan favorites. We fell in love with the classic Romana: tomatoes, mozzarella, capers, black olives, olive oil, anchovies and oregano.

Located in Philly’s fashionable Manayunk area, Caputo’s Pizzeria has a long list of specialty pizzas featuring fresh ingredients and plenty of options. But while pizza might be the name of the game here, there are also calzones, stromboli and sandwiches. You’d be remiss not to try the cheesesteak menu –– there’s a full 12 ounces of meat on every sandwich!

This isn’t an ordinary pizzeria slinging pepperoni and sausage. Here you’ll find a traditional Caprese salad and upscale toppings ranging from pancetta to roasted rosemary chicken and artichokes. We think the Tommy Guns Tomato & Mozz is divine. It features fresh basil, The Dons’ fresh mozzrella, sliced tomato, Parmigiano, Romano, sea salt and olive oil. Now that’s Italian!
