Our pizza family is stronger & way more delicious with Tacconelli’s New Jersey in the fold. You'll taste why their pies are some of Philly' area's finest at Pizzadelphia Fest on June 15 at the Navy Yard. Get your tickets before they're gone!

The Tacconellis brought the taste of Italy to Philadelphia over a century ago in 1918, and it all started with baking bread. Giovanni Tacconelli and his friends built a 20’ x 20’ brick oven, to which he began a bread baking business until his sons were drafted into the military. In 1946, Giovanni repurposed his brick oven to making tomato pies, passing this down to his son Anthony and wife Sylvia, to their son Vince and his wife Barbara until 1998. Upon retirement, the business was then ran by their son Vince Jr. and wife Doris until 2002. Since 2003, Vince Jr. and Doris have opened a second Tacconelli’s Pizzeria in Maple Shade, NJ, and they’ve been operating it ever since.

Now in its 5th generation of tomato pies, the Tacconelli’s maintain its original location in Philadelphia to a traditional menu of pies on pies, and calling ahead between Wednesday and Sunday to reserve your dough is still highly recommended. At Tacconelli’s in Maple Shade, salads are served along with pasta and dessert to accompany the traditional menu of pies. Not to mention, dough reservations are not necessary as walk-ins are welcomed.

While menu updates and location changes have occurred over the years, the traditional recipe of Giovanni Tacconelli’s tomato pie is one thing that will remain the same crowd pleaser at either location. Try it for yourself at Pizzadelphia on June 15th!
