DeLorenzo’s serves serious tradition with their pizza — 68 years worth. It was launched in Trenton in 1947 by Southern Italian immigrant Alexander "Chick" De Lorenzo; today, Delorenzo’s tradition is upheld by his grandson Sam Amico at the new location in Robbinsville, opened in 2007 (the original was closed in 2012 when its stewards, Gary and Eileen Amico, retired).

DeLorenzo’s makes a clam pie, albeit with tomato sauce (New Haven pizza purists, beware!), but customers can add to small or large tomato pies by selecting from a range of toppings ($1.50 each) including anchovies, artichokes, basil, spinach, black olives, broccoli, garlic, hot peppers, mushrooms, onions, sausage, roasted peppers, sweet peppers, and pepperoni. We list these fastballs (as well as the $3 homemade meatball topping to make this curveball even more effective: this near-septuagenarian pizzeria serves a tuna tomato pie, too.

  • Best pies in the northeast - hands down!
  • Voted Best Pizza in New Jersey in New Jersey Magazine. Also once NJ 101.5 radio station had everyone call in and was voted best in NJ as well. I must say I agree!
  • Everyone has their opinion about the pizza, but the hundreds of people checking in to DeLorenzo's can't be wrong about this gem. Order a tomato pie, load it up with sausage, peppers and onions.
  • I haven't had an erection in years, but after eating the pizza here it was back, and better then ever. The pizza there is magical and saved my sex life. Thanks are my savior.
  • Awesome tomato pies (a Trenton-style tomato pie is built with the cheese underneath and the sauce on top), though the crust could use more flavor. No slices.
  • Best pizza in the world. Period.
  • Best tomato pie (pizza) in NJ. Service is wonderful.
  • Best tomato pie on the planet...hands down
  • So amazing! I'm so happy to have DeLorenzo's right down the street from home now. Nobody knows pizza like DeLorenzo's!
  • The antipasto sucked! ;(
  • I am here on a Saturday at 11:20 am, it opens at 11 am and the place is half full... Come early for the best Pizza in the world!!!
  • Great thin crust pizza & byob
  • Meatball pizza is the best!
  • Shitty pizza. Crust is always badly burnt. Can't cut it right. Over priced for what you get.
  • Give the eggplant parm pizza a try! Delicious!!!
  • Try a pie with Sausage and Roasted Peppers! You'll thank me.
  • This is a favorite pizza place for my family
  • don't sleep on the pasta fagioli
  • When I went, this pizza changed my life. Reality-distorting crust. Sauce that is from heaven. Cheese spectacular. But, something magic about the whole thing. You can taste the history, no faking it.
