Anyone been yet? How does it compare to the old Lombardi's in Rittenhouse?

    I went there about a month ago, and I thought the pie was excellent. It's very thin, probably even thinner than Lombardi's. Sauce was very good.

    While they have a special take-out timing system, I think their pizza would be best enjoying eating it there. The thinness of it could make it soggy with a take home order (although I reheated leftovers and they were ok).

      This is my new favorite pizza in Philly. Agree, probably even thinner than Lombardi's was. Nice and crispy, charred around the edges.
      Definitely an eat-in, probably wouldn't travel well. Dining room is really cute, small, but comfortable. Had both a red and white pizza. Preferred the white, but only because I really liked the garlic. Super fresh toppings. Really no complaints.
