Inquirer mega-star food critic Craig LaBan had this to say about Pitruco's:
"... Pitruco Pizza is the star worth setting your Outlook calendar by ... Pitruco, which roasts its puffy-lipped Neapolitan-style pies in a wood-fired one-ton oven, has already landed itself in the conversation about Philly’s best pizza. The “salame” pie brings soppressata rounds atop a tomato sauce infused amatriciana-style with pancetta. The “sausage” has pork meatballs lolling in creamy flows of nutmeg-scented bechamel. My favorite, though, is the minimalist margherita, a near-ideal round of basil-plumed red sauce topped with sweet clouds of Italian bufala mozzarella. At $8, there may not be a better pie for the price in Philly."
