Power couple Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran rule the restaurant scene on 13th Street, and Barbuzzo is their Mediterranean-inspired intimate dining experience. Chef Turney has created a few favorite flavors that keep the pie fans coming back for more. The Uovo includes truffled egg, Pera is a mix of red pears and ham, and for the more traditional in taste, there's a Calabrese with a satisfying hit of chili.

The King of Prussia Mall is one of the largest retail spaces in America and the largest shopping mall on the East Coast. With over 400 stores and restaurants to browse, at least shoppers now know where to find the best pizza in the mall: it's at North Italia. Dedicated to great ingredients and an attentive team, this franchise manages to keep the essence of a great Italian restaurant: good food and even better service. Ask about the chef's daily special pizza, or get stuck into diners' favorite "The Pig." Lashings of pepperoni and Italian sausage make this some of the best pizza in Philadelphia.

Bar Lucca stands in the riverside borough of Conshohocken and has a fantastic outdoor seating area that gives the feel of street-side dining. Step inside one of the best pizza restaurants in Philadelphia to experience ambient lighting and an intimate atmosphere: perfect for date night. Influenced by the cuisine and culture of northwest Tuscany, the menu offers two different types of pizza: Neapolitan and Tuscan thin crust. The toppings differ depending on the crust chosen, so short rib goes with Tuscan while delicate hand-sliced soppressata and chili is a Neapolitan favorite.

Hand-rolled dough, homemade sauce, and a blazing brick oven are the keystones of Bertucci's success. Bold flavor and hearty portions make this West Wayne Italian restaurant a favorite with locals. A starter sampler is a great way to begin, with Tuscan chicken wings and meatballs. Then comes the pizza, with toppings ranging from simple yet delicious pepperoni to the exotic Marengo, with chicken, lemon, two kinds of cheese, and roasted sweet peppers. Bertucci's promise to "save a seat by the fire."

This Center City Italian restaurant is a "bustling burst of Italian flavor and energy." From the sumptuous leather booths to the single candle on each table, the atmosphere channels the spirit of the traditional trattoria while maintaining the outlook of a modern, vibrant restaurant. There are two menus for the wood-fired pizza: bianca and rossa. The sauce is very much optional. The mushroom and buffalo chicken are big hits with regular diners.

Established in 1998, Botto's is a proper Italian family-run restaurant in the heart of Swedesboro. Rated as one of the top restaurants in the area, this is definitely a joint to check out when searching for the best pizza restaurants in Philadelphia. They serve their own handmade Italian sausage, plus two different types of "white" pizza. There are even gluten-free options. For a real taste of the area though, it has to be the pizza-style cheesesteak, lovingly cooked with onions, marinara, and mozzarella.
