We first ate here 30+ years ago when Celebre's was widely recognized as "the best pizza in Philly." We were massively unimpressed and never went back then we moved out to the 'burbs. We had lunch there last Saturday since we were in the area, it was cold, rainy and windy and it was the closest restaurant to our final... More

Not the best pizza ever had but certainly nowhere near the worst we've been coming here for years way back when the shopping center that they are located in used to be very busy Center, it's not the traditional style pizza... but it's pretty good I enjoy it.... we have good memories of the place, food is decent also disservice...

Ordered a white pizza to go on the way out of town. It was cooked perfectly (lots of golden brown mozzarella on top). I would stop here again, if I was in the neighborhood.

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and grandson, and myself went to Celebrese pizza on a Sunday afternoon in April. There were no other patrons in the restaurant. No one greeted us or came near us even though the pizza maker and waitress were standing right there. When they finally decided to acknowledge us the first thing they said was, we have... More

I have been going to Celebre's Pizzeria for 48 years. My wife and I love their thin crust pizza. They offer so many toppings as well and they are delicious also. We went recently before a Phillies game and in the past they would be packed but with the Phillies playing so poorly this year we didn't have to wait.... More

Tucked away in the shopping center off broad and on packer ave this is where the locals go for takeout and visitors come before games and shows to experience south Philly's best kept secret!
