Restaurant Review

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

They are a spin off of the original Tacconelli's in Philadelphia

Father & son Vince and Vince Tacconelli, working as a team own and operates the restaurant. The son Vince is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, a unique credential for a family owned and operated Italian restaurant.

In addition to their signature Pizzas, Tacconelli's offers a limited menu of salads, sandwiches, fresh, house made pastas, entrees, and desserts.

The pizza dough recipe remains the same as the recipe handed down by great-great-grandpa Tacconelli,. However the home-made pasta recipe is the creation of CIA Grad Vince Jr.

Despite the excellent, pasta dishes, the reason to come here is for their pizza.

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

The interior is spacious with red walls, several seating areas, some with patterned banquettes.

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

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