  • "We were a group of eleven and had the whole upstairs to ourselves. The service was excellent as was the food. Delicious pizzas and salads as well as other type of food available."

  • "This restaurant is supposed to be noted for its pizza - the owners are from Naples. I had the Funghi pizza, and it was simply okay - not great! The crust is very doughy, kind of rubbery, and the entire pizza seemed as though it was uncooked, with all of the ingredients very wet and loose. I had to follow in DeBlasio's footsteps and eat it with a knife and fork, but it was very difficult to cut, even with a sharp knife! By far not the best pizza I have ever had. I left much of the crust on the plate, because I simply got tired trying to chew it. My friend enjoyed his broccoli puree soup, and his chicken dish, so he made the better choice."

  • "seating This may seem ridiculous but the banquettes seats are too low. I am 5'10"...so the table height is at the base of your neck. its weird, but someone needs to say something. food and drink kale salad was clean tasting and nice. octopus was tender. mimosas lacked alcohol. service not accustomed to to serving kids. good for brunch was great. also can see it would be good for late night bite."

  • "Was here for a group dinner and the food was A-Ok. pizza wasnt anything special and actually dissapointing. It wasnt hot and almost room temp. Not impressed. But if anything - order the montana and the margarita. Otherwise i would skip along and try somewhere else. We're in NYC- king of pizza...this one jst didnt make the cut."

  • "Amazing pizza, odd space, very nice maître d, lousy server - about 25 minutes after seating before server came to take 1st drink order, then when he returned to take additional drink orders, he would take an order and run instead of asking others at the table if anyone else needed a drink. The busboy was more attentive.."

  • "I have been going to Forcella since it first opened in Williamsburg. I've dined at all three locations, and I think they all rock. But the Park Avenue one has become my favorite. I always have a great experience there. The food, wine and service are excellent. You've got to try the need sliders, the burrata with balsamic glaze and the margarita extra pizza!"

  • "We looked for a restaurant near theater Repertorio Español and we found this nice restaurant. We reserved in advance a table for six. Igor, our main waiter, welcomed us and took us to a nice table in the upstairs room.The decor is Italian. We chose a Nero d'Avola red wine which paired very well our dinner. The entrees were regular individual pizza margherita, grilled salmon, broiled scallops and spaguetti with fruta di mare. All of these were nicely prepared and everyone loved their entree. Water glasses were served regularly. initially the atmosphere was quiet but became louder as a group of younger people that sat next to us. Great food for a moderate price and very good service. I will go back again."

  • "We had a great time at forcella yesterday. Let me start by saying pizza was off the hook. the crust is exactly like in naples. wood burning, thin crust, DELICIOUS. the appetizer of pear and arugula salad was alos really good and you could tell it was realy fresh. Wine list has good choice of Italian and world classics. Our server was very charming and personable young Italian fellow, who took good care to check on us often yet not too intrusively. We could see form our table that the bar schene is lively, as it seemed a group of young people was having a (bit loud) good time at the slick bar. The decor is over-the-top fifth ave , for those who like such a thing, great find open till late."

  • "Attentive staff. Delicious, authentic Italian food. There ended up being 2 large, loud parties on either side of our table. It got VERY noisy. The staff and management became aware and took care of us. These are the kind of people who will be in business for a long time to come. We will definitely return."

  • "When you come to Forcella you are greeted by a friendly staff who is taking care of you all the way through. They are very attentive even when busy and the food is delicious. Pizza is incredibly thin and crusty, steaks are perfect as well as are gnocchi and various pastas. The beautiful decor of grey and red complimented by gorgeous glass lamps creates a lavish atmosphere that merges this restaurant with a lounge-type place. This place has a second floor so you can choose whether you want to be seated in a more romantic and secluded space upstairs or on the lovely first floor that is at the center of this lively place. I enjoyed my dinner with a friend and I am sure that I will come back for more with my partner as well as with my friends."

  • "I have to say that for all the good reviews, I found the pizza pretty unimaginative and the pasta overly drenched in sauces. Both in this neighborhood and beyond, there's better Italian to be had out there..."

  • "Loved the arugula salad with pears and honey. The pizza was thin, and tasted as authentic Naples as anything I have had. You will love the food."
