In 1959, Dwight Eisenhower was president, Hawaii and Alaska officially became states, and Santucci’s opened in the Italian Market. And after 60 years, they still make an extremely good pizza. Their pies are square, with sweet, bright-red tomato sauce and just the right amount of mozzarella cheese. You should go in person to their original Italian Market location, but they deliver from all four of their Philly locations. They also now have three locations down the Shore, just in case you get tired of going to Manco & Manco’s every single night.
