“If You're In Philly, You Need A Cheese Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

Swarthmore Pizza is a great place to get an authentic Philadelphia Cheese Steak. They have several variations on the original, and they're all delicious. Actually, everything I've tried on their menu has been great.

“Off Target”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

This restaurant has a wood-burning oven, it has all the right equipment, it has good staff, it has plenty of space, and it has an excellent location. But the pizzas just don't reach the standard that we old-schoolers are used to. By old school standard I mean traditional East Coast pizza. In more concrete and local terms, I mean a standard that matches Morton Pizza - now sadly lost to history. Anthony Bourdain and other food writers say that a good cook can make something very simple taste absolutely delicious: an omelette, soup, potatoes, pizza... Swarthmore Pizza definitely has great potential but is frustratingly and consistently off target. If I had to guess I'd say they were relying on industrial ingredients rather than making their own. I made two pizzas from scratch, and from just a simple Jamie Oliver recipe: the first one looked like hell but tasted like heaven; the second looked good and tasted like the first. And the whole house smelled like a real old-school pizzeria. Now, if I can do it...
