Opened in 2012, Forcella crafts each pizza with style, grace, and top ingredients. It all begins with Caputo 00 flour and ends in a big, domed, wood-burning oven to pump out perfectly blistered, pillowy crusts like clockwork. The warm, rustic dining space is simple but comfortable, with a welcoming bar that offers a great view of the pizzaiolo performing his magic. You can create your own pizza with any number of fresh ingredients, or try one of their signature pies, like the Montanara, a unique house specialty that's fried, then decked with creamy fior di latte and slid into the oven for finishing.

Best Neapolitan pizza in NYC! (said by a Neapolitan expat ;) )
The lemon pizza and the pizza fritta are top notch, make sure you keep some space in your stomach for the Angioletti, a massive plate of little fried pizza dough pieces covered with Nutella #heavenonearth !

Vasy welcomed me back to this quaint little spot in Williamsburg. He served up some delicious calamari over arugula with a side of marinara sauce. This time I went for the fried pizza. The taste and texture was better than I thought it was going to be. I was too full to finish it and took the rest with me. I really enjoyed my meal. The staff superb. Made me feel like family.

We came here because we had to utilize an OpenTable gift certificate, and we were very surprised by the quality of food for such a reasonable price. My wife and I shared the Burrata, which was very good. I followed with the pasta with fresh pesto (fresh is an understatement, it was radiating with green color). My wife had the fried pizza with mushroom and truffle oil, which was very very good and quite a large portion for 1 person.

They were not over crowded, no long wait, and this seems like a hidden gem. The customized pizzas were to die for. Im going back. I stumbled across it because it was close to our location and casual ;-)

The fried pizza was immaculate. It had that fried taste but it wasn't heavy or greasy. I recommend.

The pizzas where great. Not the typical New York style pizza, they were more gourmet style and we loved it.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with Forcella. They claim to be the best pizza in Brooklyn. Um, no. We had an arugula salad with gorgonzola - it was the best dish of the meal, altho not particularly memorable. Everything else was basically tasteless - fried calamari (how do you make that so bland?) with bland tomato sauce to dip it in. Pizza Margherita Extra with more bland tomato sauce and a decent crust, and Pizza Margherita with sausage and truffle oil, which made it marginally more interesting. Still, the whole experience was meh. At least it was relatively cheap - if that makes it a good value for mediocre food, so be it.

Vasy my server welcomed me in to begin my dining experience. I started out with the eggplant parmesan which was seasoned just right and went well with the garlic bread. The homemade lasagna was perfect for my taste buds. I opt out for the fried pizza which is what they are famous for because I didn't realize it at the time. So hopefully on my next dining trip there I will get to try it.
