Joe Beddia Talks Yelp, Fishtown, and His Pizza Nazi Reputation

One good pizza I had in Philly recently was at… Rione’s at 21st and Chestnut. It’s Roman style. To me, it’s perfect. Very light and airy. The pizza sits out on trays and you can get them to reheat it, but I would recommend eating it at room temperature. I don’t need hot pizza.
