Tried the regular and upside down jawn. Regular is football pie with very little flop. It’s not a thin crust but super fluffy and light.The crust was crispy and cooked well done. Best cheese and sauce I’ve had. Has a salty sweet taste. Upside down is their version of a Sicilian pie, sauce on top, cheese on the bottom. Same super fluffy light crust with a crunchy crispy crust. Might be the best UD I’ve had Hard to explain just how good these pies are. My one bite score is for both pies...

It’s very good, but it’s not a 9.1. It’s way too much cheese for my liking. I think it would be in the 9s if they scaled back the cheese.

Good pizza but I have to disagree with a lot of the reviews. It’s a good pizza but it’s different in a lot of ways. It has a medium thin crust but a tall layer of cheese puts this right on the line of being a pie. Not like a thin crust NYC at all. The hour on a Sunday is an hour but it was worth the experience. Heard from a handful of people that this was the best in Philly but I don’t think it live up to the hype. Don’t think that this is a 9 pizza. Solid 8 but upon first bite, I was a little disappointed. It’s a solid pizza. Flavor is good. Undercarriage was perfect and sauce was good but not life changing. There is a hint of sour dough (guess it’s a Philly thing) but when I was leaving town I also grabbed a pizza from Pizzata. I ate one slice of this pizza and 3 from Pizzata on the way home. That alone says it all.

Best pizza in philly! The crunch is to die for and prob one of my fav pizzas in general (coming from someone that lived in nyc). Also if you reheat in oven it still keeps that flavor and crunch

Amazingly fresh, perfect crunch on the crust, perfect cheese to sauce ratio .

The pizza was worth the wait, but that cheesesteak was on point.

Quite excited to try this one. Perfect balance of quality ingredients and cook. The sauce has flavor and the basil/ pecorino adds punch. Nice char on the crust that holds up as the pizza cools. Well worth the wait.

Good but doesnt hold a flame to Sally’s or Little Rendezvous. Not crispy enough and undercarriage a bit floppy.

🔔BEST OF PHILLY ALERT🔔 Opened in 2013 in South Philly, this takeout only & cash only “jawn” has skyrocketed to the top of the Philadelphia pizza & cheesesteak lists. With so much hype surrounding this spot, it’s not uncommon to see lines out the door on a random Wednesday. And good luck trying to call in an order; I tried over a 2-hour span, the line was either busy or they just didn’t pick up. And if that ordering process isn’t enough of a hassle, they’re also closed on Monday & Tuesday & only open til 7pm the rest of the week. Aside from the mildly annoying logistics to get my hands on this pizza, they do make an aesthetically beautiful pie. Aside from the slightly off-kilter slicing, this pizza passes the eye & smell test with flying colors. As for the feel test, this thicker, fancier, Football pie is physically heavy; but the dough is actually light & airy, particularly the crust, with a wonderfully charred undercarriage, with blackened dough flavor and a crispy & crunchy texture, this passes the feel test as well. Without a doubt, the star of this pizza is the cheese. A thickish, top-quality blend of shredded mozzarella, pungently sharp with phenomenal flavor, consistency & texture, with a magnificently melty, oozy flow; the cheese undoubtedly passes the taste test. As for the sauce, the low volume is a significant problem for me; there is not nearly enough quantity for my liking. Light, not particularly sweet, an absence of tang, void of zest, the sauce is far too subdued & nondescript likely due to the little amount spread across the pie. Some fresh basil adds a smidge of flavor & a bit of class, but it doesn’t help the sauce sing. The other ingredients combined with the crisp texture are Hall of Fame worthy; but the sauce falling flat keeps this pizza out of the 9s but still in the travel-worthy category. Really good pizza overall, certainly top 5 in Philly; and if you make the journey here, their cheesesteaks are a must. Can’t go wrong with “wiz wit” or their Cooper sharp American cheese. 🧀🥩

Thicc za. Good taste and nice crunch around the edges, but just not my style. Pretty on par with the Angelo’s coal fire in nyc - don’t think there’s a relationship, but I also wouldn’t be surprised if there was
kyle.queen10/1/23, 6:23 p.m.
It was good, but not as good as the hype surrounding it. Cheesesteaks were top notch though. I’m going to.

Unequivocally the best pizza in Philly and likely in all of Pennsylvania. This no flop slice with its crust perfectly cooked and had just the right char for an unbelievable taste. Its seasoned sauce had the requisite blend of ingredients complimenting the char flavor. When in Philly, forget the cheesesteak and go right to Angelo's for a nice treat that won't disappoint.

This is one of two baby slices I've had at the One Bite Fest. Harder but not impossible to judge a place on them. Almost every one I got was hot and fresh. First baby slice (pictured) lacked sauce and mostly tasted like basil. They shave parmigiana off the block on their pizza on top of using the normal (usually Grande brand) dry mozz. But the second slice I had later was more balanced with sauce and less dry. Biggest surprise—and this may be due to circumstances—but the crust wasn't as airy as I thought I would be. It was very good though light, thin, well done, light chew, but not with a raised cornicione you can see the air pockets and tasted the fermentation in. Sauce that is there is well balanced between acidity and a hint of natural sweetness. This is more of a cheesy pie. Anyway, hard to remember the nuances of the 30+ places I had, but this is still on my list to try at the actually pizzeria if I'm in Philly. But for now, based on what I had, it doesn't get the 9 from me. Still very good.

Fundamentals are all here. Undercarriage is on point. There was just nothing with the sauce or cheese flavor to wow you or back the 9.0+ hype.
sean.newsome19/3/23, 6:36 p.m.
Not bad, but very overrated. Long line. Nothing about this pizza truly stood out. Much better to be had in NY and NJ.
christian.bowe9/2/23, 7:32 p.m.
A little heavier than I expected but wow. This pie is very good, great sauce, great crust and cheese. Truly a must come if you are in Philadelphia. P.s the cheesesteak is amazing
