I love that we're getting more into the Roman style in Center City and I'm living for it! I opted to get the lunch special which allows you to get 3 items with option of mixing and matching (slice, suppli, half sammy, half salad), picking a margarita and another slice that I honestly can't tell you what was on it, and a suppli al telefono. I came pretty late into the afternoon just after the lunch rush, and I couldn't help but notice the timing of the pizza vs the suppli felt off. It would make more sense to drop the suppli, then toss the pizza in the over to warm back up so they finish around the same time, particularly if there's literally no other patron in the restaurant. But that's borderline picky, so I'll stop. I just had piping hot suppli and rapidly-getting-cold pizza. Still, the suppli and the pizzas were super good and I was glad I could take advantage of the reduced price. It's kind of out of the way for me but I'd definitely stop by again if I was in the neighborhood.
I walked into Rione curious about this Roman style pizza I had heard such good things about. As I walked up to the counter the entire selection of square slices of pizza looked tempting but I figured I only had room for 3 slices. I tried the margherita, the polpetta and the diavolo. The thicker than usual crust on all 3 slices was airy but crisp on the bottom. You can hold each slice easily to eat it. The diavolo was the standout star, with its flavorful spicy soppressata making it a must on any future visit. The polpette was good, but the meatballs weren't quite as tasty as I would have liked. The margherita was exactly what you would expect, with a delicious sauce complemented with spots of cheese. The space has more seating than you would expect, making it a good spot to sit for lunch. I plan to come back for more. I'm now a Roman style pizza fan.
Rittenhouse Square is one of those places that is a culinary revelry, and I'm happy to say that I've tried and have enjoyed many spots on its elaborate food map. But of late whenever I've been in that area there's only been one thing that I've found myself craving, and that's a slice or two of impressive pizza's from Rione! For me, when it comes to pizza I'm all about those slices that are hip to be square that are made so good by places like Santucci's (Which I'm still somehow VERY belated in reviewing. Soon!). But the perfectly prepared Roman style pizza al taglio that Rione delivers even manages to give the old guard of that regard a serious run for its money! And with traditional slices like a damn good margherita, slices inspired by Italian classics like carbonara and eggplant parm, and then some, it makes some pretty amazing slices that come immediately into sight as you walk in the door. Some of my favorite slices include: Cotto E Funghi - This funghi is a very FUN GUY with his ham, mushrooms, and Parm Reggiano! Carciofi E Spinaci - Artichoke and spinach combine to form a very solid veggie pizza! Patate E Salsiccia - Sauage and potatoes on a pizza with extra rosemary? Yes please! Polpette - meatballs and Parm Reggiano make this pizza a king! Prosciutto Crudo - Prosciutto Di Parma and burrata reunited on an amazing pizza with arugula. When your blinded by so many amazing pizza options upon walking in, you miss details like them serving sandwiches loaded with porchetta, and desserts like tiramisu and cannoli. And now that I know of their weekday lunch special that lets you grab any 3 for $9, I have even more reason to make the most out of my lunch time!
