Restaurant Review

Located across from the Moorestown Mall, Tacconelli's Pizzeria serves one of the best thin crust pizzas in South Jersey.

They are a spin off of the original Tacconelli's in Philadelphia, and in 2003, Vince Tacconelli and his wife opened this restaurant in Maple Shade near their home.

Vince is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, a unique credential for a family owned and operated Italian restaurant with a limited menu.

Tacconelli's  limited menu serves salads, sandwiches, entrees, pizza, and desserts.
Why eat here?  Come here for their pizza.

Tacconelli's serves up a wood burned oven pizza with an exceptional thin crust --- chewy, crunchy, and bread like tasty.

The place is very popular and you should expect a long wait on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The service is friendly and attentive, though they do not accept cards.

Tacconelli's is closed Monday, open Tuesday - Saturday 4:00-9:30pm, and Sunday 3:00-8:30pm

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
