Rione brings authentic pizza al taglio (pizza by the "cut" or slice) to Philadelphia. The name Rione is from the Italian term to describe the districts or neighborhoods of Rome. Philadelphia, like Rome, is a city of vibrant and distinct neighborhoods. Rione celebrates pizza al taglio and the neighborhoods from which it comes and serves.

Pizza al taglio is a ubiquitous street food from Rome that is baked in rectangular trays and sold by the slice or tray. We make all of our dough by scratch using a highly hydrated formula and allow it to rise for 72 hours, meaning that Rione’s pizza al taglio is light, airy, and easy to digest. We use imported ingredients from Italy as well as local produce to promote authenticity and the Italian tradition of eating locally and seasonally.
