That didn’t take very long. Seems Gennaro’s Tomato Pie, the pizza joint that we told you Lombardi’s Pizza’s Mike Giammarino was opening in South Philly, is all ready to go. Passyunk Post reports that the tomato pie-maker has passed health inspections, and hosted a little pizza party preview this past Saturday. With a short list of sauce-on-top pies, Giammarino’s goal is to create a pilgrimage-worthy destination much like Port Richmond’s infamous Tacconelli’s. Decked with a bevy of vintage gewgaws and knickknacks — P’unk Post has a bunch of photos — Giammarino has set the stage for a cozy, family-friendly spot that’s also BYOB. The opening is still set for January 2. [Passyunk Post]
