Description: Step into the cozy dining room of Spaccanapoli, and you immediately feel at ease, as the walls are painted in warm tones, comfy cushions adorn the chairs, and magazines and newspapers rest on nearly every table. Grab a seat at one of the wooden tables under black and white photographs of famous Italian actors, and peruse the extensive menu, which features traditional Italian dishes that you won't find in other run-of-the-mill Italian places in Ubud. Got questions? Not to fear-Napoli-born owner Piero and his wife Enung are always on hand to assist or simply engage you in warm and welcoming conversation. The food at Spaccanapoli has its roots in Southern Italian cuisine, so the menu features plenty of handmade pastas, wood-fired pizzas and vibrant dishes with fresh seafood, herbs and vegetables. Start your meal with the light Insalata di Polpo for tender chunks of octopus marinated in olive oil, lemon, parsley and garlic, or sample the Crocchete di Patate, which are crispy and golden on the outside and smooth and creamy with potato, mozzarella and ham on the inside. Once your appetite has been whetted, move on to the Gnocchi a'la Spaccanapoli with bacon, mushroom, zucchini, basil and cream, or the Penne e' Siciliana with fried eggplant, house made tomato sauce and fresh basil. All of the dishes at Spaccanapoli are bursting with flavor, however, their true strength lies in the pizzas, which are made from scratch with fresh ingredients and cooked in an authentic wood-fired pizza oven. Favorites include the Vesuvius with tomato sauce, mozzarella, olives, pepperoni, Napoli chili oil and basil, or the Positano with a white base, mozzarella, provolone, rocket, shaved parmigiano and olive oil. Craving authentic Italian but don't want to go out? Lucky for you, they do delivery too.

I visited twice to Spaccanapoli - first time I enjoyed the fungi and spinach pasta, although I thought the portion size was small for a pasta dish and price was on the high side...so not great value for money...but flavour was nice.

Second visit I went to try the pizza and took a friend with very discerning taste buds. I ordered a Vespa pizza which had four toppings - spinach feta, capsicum, mozzarella..I asked to swap the feta for mushroom as I wanted a fungi pizza but there was none on the menu....so when the pizza arrived it came with many extra vegetables....boiled carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini....none of which were mentioned in the description on the menu....I called the waitress over and she explained these were disclosed because they had mentioned "seasoned veg." in the menu.....so I said OK let's see...but basically all I could taste was boiled vegetable..

I was very surprised and embarrassed because this place is owned by an Italian guy and I expected something more like the taste from iTaly and not the taste of boilded vegetables... the staff were not that concerned about the situation, and never came back to ask how the food was after my first comments about the extra boiled vegetables...so....I cannot recommend aa a genuine Italian flavour for pizza.

Came here multiple times over the 5 days we were in Ubud and we're consistently impressed with the food quality.
Not sure why Pizza Bagus gets all the fame because this place is right next door and is 100X better

I am a backpacker, so expect very little out of a meal. The bruschetta was tasteless and dry. The main was edible, but I ordered fries and the waiter decided to not tell me I couldn't have them with this particular meal, until my food actually came, even as a side extra? The home made apple pie for dessert was again, by far, the worst apple pie i've ever eaten, if not the worst dessert i've ever eaten...and i'm English, i've eaten a lot of apple pie haha! It was again, tasteless and so dry, I had to wash it down with water. The ice cream, was filled with ice it was crunchy. Maybe I picked the wrong things on the menu, because everyone elses food looked good, but for me, it was the most expensive meal I have had in Bali, at 160,000 rupiah (and I've eaten out everyday), yet it was by far the worst meal i've had since being here. To top it off, the waiter couldn't seem to get the right figure of payment, even though she had a calculator.

Not usually one to write reviews, but I felt this needed to be said. By all means, everyone has different experiences, but be careful if you choose to eat here and expect to be charged a premium price by bali standards, for food that is extremely dissappointing.

There are many other places in Bali, that offer cheaper food, that is much more tasty! Enjoy!

We had the eggplant gratin, pasta carbonara and pasta with mushrooms and vegetables. The carbonara were ok but not great (very dry) and the home made pasta with mushrooms tasted horrible, like damped rotted pasta. It was not good and the veggies and mushrooms didn't make up for it. The eggplant gratin was heated in the microwave and disgusting. we asked for extra parmesan, which we were charged for. On top of all that, the service was extremely slow! we waited for more than 30 min while we were the only one to order (2 other tables had their food already).
