Gianfranco Pizza Rustica (Old City) - Pizza

Appears a large slice  with a dark brown crust and underside with a layer of cheese, chunky tomatoes, and dried herbs. - 4

The crust is crispy, crackly, and crunchy.  Imagine the texture of the outside of a marshmallow that's been roasted to a deep gold over a camp fire and there you have it.  A thin layer of this crispiness that shows a fine layer of soft bread hidden atop the ground layer of crust. - 4.5

The sauce is semi-sweet with some chunks of fresh tomato around the top of the pie.  Really tasty and delicious stuff! - 4.5

The cheese is of a fresh, creamy mozzarella that remains, creamy, chewy, and sweet with a little bit of fatty oil settling on the top. - 4

Overall, I wasn't sure what to expect, as I've heard mixed reviews about this spot in Old City Philadelphia.  I wasn't disappointed, as this was everything that I had hoped for as far as the crust, sauce, and cheese in concerned.  Well done...I can't wait to check them out again on my next time in Old City. - 4

Total Score: 4.2/5
