Santucci’s will be Opening in Wildwood NJ for the Summer of 2022

Santucci’s Original Square Pizza was founded by the late Joseph and Philomena Santucci. Their incredible story began in South Philadelphia at 10th and Carpenter, where they first started their family. In 1959, they moved to Northeast Philadelphia and opened the very first Santucci’s Original Square Pizza on “O” Street in Juniata Park. Their family recipe for making pizza in a square pan with the sauce on top of the cheese was considered unconventional at first, but quickly became a pizza staple for lunch and dinner at restaurants in Philadelphia.

Joseph and Philomena always dreamed about building a strong, family business they would eventually leave to their children. Their son, Frank, always envisioned the family business becoming more than just an average mom and pop pizzeria. Frank took over the business in 1976, allowing his mother and father to retire from their years of hard work. Frank maintained the name and quality of the pizza for over forty years at the original location on “O” Street.

In 2020 they announced they were opening and put a sign on a boardwalk store between 20th and 21st street, but covid 19 made them change plans and now they have signs up and are getting ready for the summer of 2022. The will be located at 402 E. 26th Ave in Wildwood, NJ.
