Slices, Anyone?

Best Pizza Slice pit stop In the District


Located in the University District, Aracri Pizzeria is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant and pizzeria.

Built on the foundation of big family and good food, Aracri Pizzeria is the latest concept opened by the founders of Cafe Napolitana, which opened its doors over 26 years ago in 1992, to the campus crowd. Owners and operators Palmo and Deanne Aracri epitomize the Ma and Pa persona and often times their four children can be found hard at work behind the counter. 

Palmo, an Italian immigrant, from Calabria, Italy, grew up with the culinary gene running through his veins. His father owned a small cafeteria in Italy. His older brothers Salvatore and Quentino both owned pizzeria and Italian restaurants in the South before settling in Dayton and Cincinnati, respectively. 

Palmo learned the craft from hard work in his brothers’ restaurants, before earning the title of pizzaiolo in 1992, when he and his wife opened their University District location. The two have strived to make Aracri Pizzeria a family friendly establishment and a place where one can get a great slice of New York style pie.
