Pizza is pretty much a staple to any apartment-ites diet, but sometimes one gets tired of the everyday stuff the big chains deliver, and you want to try some of Philadelphia's finer slices. No place in town is serving up as delicious flavors as can be found at Tacconelli's Pizzeria, which gets so much business, that you have to order your pizzas in advance to ensure that there will be one when you get there. At Tacconelli's, you don't reserve your seat, but instead, reserve your pizza. All pizzas are made with the freshest ingredients possible, and cooked fresh and made to order in an old-fashioned brick oven to crisp perfection.
When it comes time to order, you have any number of choices. First, choose what kind of pie you want: the Tomato Pie, with no cheese and lots of sauce, regular pie, with a little cheese and sauce, the white pie, with salt, pepper, cheese and plenty of garlic, and the Margerita pie, with fresh basil and mozzarella. Then you can choose from one of their delicious toppings, including pepperoni, anchovies, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage, sweet peppers, onions, prosciutto, and basil, as well as throwing on plenty of extra cheese. Like so many restaurants in the Philly area, you're free to bring your own alcohol, but know that it's strictly beer and wine only. Also, know that this place is cash only, so not credit or debit cards.
Apartment-ites eat plenty of pizza, so when it comes time to have a slice, go with the best you can get, Tacconneli's Pizzeria, heralded by patrons as the absolute best pizza in Philadelphia, and a must-see for any Italian pie fans.
