Lorenzo & Sons is back

Pizza again comes from the ovens at 305 South.

Lorenzo & Sons is back


Nine months after it was destroyed by fire, the South Street pizza landmark Lorenzo & Sons is back.

It soft-opened this morning, and is aiming for a grand opening on Friday, May 3.

An informal taste-test at 305 South St. shows that nothing has changed. The $3 slices yielded by 28-inch pies are enormous and foldable - perfect for middle-of-the-night cravings. (It's open till 3 a.m. weeknights, till 4 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays).

Owner Giuseppe Pulizzi says he will modify his longstanding no-toppings-on-slices rule but only on Tuesdays.

Half of proceeds from Friday's grand opening will go to Philabundance. Pulizzi said was making up bracelets that he will sell for $1, with all proceeds from those going to the hunger-relief group.
