Gennaro's Tomato Pie is owned by the same family who created the original Lombardi's in NYC, the first pizzeria in the U.S., as well as the fantastic Lombardi's that existed on 18th St. near Rittenhouse Square until their building was demolished. WELCOME BACK TO PHILADELPHIA! We had the neopolitan tomato pie with meatballs (which was always a favorite at Lombardi's).... More

You'll be hit with a wonderful aroma the second you open up the door. It has a very nice old style atmosphere if you dine in. The pizza is great, nice and crispy thin slice with flavorsome sauce and mozzarella cheese and you can even have it toasted a little crispier if you like. The sauce is amazing, I could... More

Pizza was very good thin crust and nice flavor sauce. Parking is a pain but worth the aggravation for the pizza. Cash only so don't forget your cash!

THe pizza was cold after a quick 5 minute drive home. The sauce had no taste at all. The crust was chewy, not crispy. I should had saved my... More

Nothing closer to the old country!!!! This pizza is like being in Naples. The thin crisp crust has a hint of chard flavor. The ingredients are the top line. I found the salad options to be expensive fr as little as you get.

Started with the antipasto which was very good. Roasted peppers, olives, provolone cheese and salami with roasted flat bread. Yum. We then ordered the Tomato pie with sausage and anchovies which I would order again. Major yummy. The decor is retro steel and different. I would go back and I recommend this gem.
