New Jersey native Anthony Spina opened his original pizzeria in Irwin Street Market in January 2015. The Old Fourth Ward stall was short-lived (it closed in June 2016), but the concept was not. A month later, Spina relaunched in Duluth, where a larger space accommodates proper table service and an expanded menu including chicken parm heroes and handmade cavatelli. But what brings us back are the game-changing pizzas: classic round pies, thick-crust Sicilian ones, rectangular Detroit thick-crust with those signature browned-cheese perimeters, and square Grandma pies. Thankfully for ITP-ers, Spina plans to open a new restaurant—pizza included—at Studioplex later this year.
