lorenzos-and-sons

Lorenzo’s on South Street is back. After a fire that closed the late-night pizza institution back on June, 27 2012, the pizzeria reopened today at 11 a.m. The location has been totally revamped but owner, Giuseppe Pulizzi promises the same popular pizza taste.

That’s not to say things will be identical, toppings will be available on slices. But just on Tuesdays, and only till midnight. Other changes include an all-glass storefront, air conditioning and more pizza ovens.

Friday, May 3rd will mark the official grand re-opening. WMMR’s Preston & Steve will be broadcasting live from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.and 50% of proceeds for the entire day, will be donated to Philabundance.

    Toppings will be available only on Tuesdays before Midnight? Is that for real? What conceivable rationale could explain such a decision?

    It can only improve. Last time I was there, the pizza was lousy and the service was worse.
