There is a unique tradition on going here which I will share with you about this family run business that dates back to 1959. For well over 50 years Santucci’s Square Pizza has been a big hit in Phila., and this traditon is kept alive by Joe Santucci Jr. It all began with Joe’s Dad who came up with an idea and changed the Pizza business forever. His idea was the introduction of a family recipe for pizza made the real Italian way, by placing the cheese on the bottom and sauce on top, add in a unique baking technique and also a distinctive square shape thus the Santucci square Pizza was born. You will not find a better tasting pizza anywhere else. This became a big hit and today, it is still the best in our region. So good that Philly Magazine has given them the Best of Philly award two times. The also have had over the years many articles published on their food and unigue style.

Santucci’s today is in a new location and offers a variety of pizzas, stromboli, hot and cold sandwiches, pasta .and add in their extensive menu. Prices are really that good and the portions are big. For the traditional pizza they only use fresh dough made daily with only the finest mozzarella cheese and – top that off with their family recipe >the sauce.
