Gianfranco Pizza, Old City

Was in this neighborhood and grabbed a couple of plain slices here. Was very pleasantly surprised! The pizza was excellent! Actually as good as or better than most by-the-slice New York area pizza places!

The sauce was excellent and flavorful, and they did not overload the cheese, which is the NY trend these days, very little sauce and heavy cheese.

Gianfranco was very,very good slice pizza. Anyone else been here? Any other good by the slice places to check out?

  1. Love Gianfranco's. When we order from them, it's the Sicilian pie. Takes a long time, but it's worth the wait!

    Pete's Pizza a few blocks away on Chestnut has great slices, too. Very thin, lightly crispy crust with the right balance of sauce and cheese.

    1. I used to love on the same block as Gianfranco's and ate there all the time. Tomato pie pizza is my favorite.
