Tacconelli's Pizzeria in NJ reopens after move


Pizza destination Tacconelli's opens Thursday, July 17 after a move from its longtime digs across from Moorestown Mall. It closed in February after exhausting its appeals to its landlord following the expiration of its lease.

It is now in larger quarters in downtown Maple Shade at 27 W. Main St.

Setup is still a combination of tables and booths. Menu is still focused on pizza (now there are two Woodstone ovens), though Vince Tacconelli has added four salads and four pastas (including housemade gnocchi, cavatelli and ravioli).

It's still cash only, open only Tuesday to Sunday for dinner, and you cannot get Parmesan cheese.

But you don't have to reserve your dough, which is the deal at the Port Richmond landmark Tacconelli's. (The two parlors are unaffiliated.)

Two private rooms offer seating for 24 and 32 and can be opened to seat 56. 

Smashburger has taken over the former Lenola Road location.
