Great food. Very friendly staff. Worth the drive from NJ. Can’t wait to go back and try something else.
It was a very good meal! Good service. Very good food
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 !
Shrimp Scampi is to die for!!!
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.
Went to dinner for husband's birthday. Loved the pizza!
Simply delicious! I recommend it to anyone who loves authentic thin crust pizze
The pizzas where great. Not the typical New York style pizza, they were more gourmet style and we loved it.
Amazing ! Great flavor, fresh ingredients ...a true neopolitan experience!
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.
Lovely neighborhood gem! The food is so authentic and fresh. Love all of the pasta and pizza selections. It feels like a little Italian oasis.
My husband and I reserved dinner at this restaurant for date night. The restaurant was empty besides one couple wrapping up. The food was really good and service was quick. I will definitely go back for another date night.
You will probably walk by this place without seeing it. It's around the corner from a main Avenue Grand Ave and Lorimer st, but it's a good place for pizza and a salad with a bottle of wine. They have an ornate oven that prepares the pizza quite nicely. They have a nice variety of pizzas and quite delish. They have a good selection of wine and quite good as well. The salads are really good and deserve to be added to your meal. There was only 1 guy serving and he seemed to have it under control. Not much personality but got the job done. The cost is quite reasonable for this place. It is a wide open space with plenty of seating. The bar is well stocked. Added prosciutto to my margarita pizza and even without the prosciutto it is quite tasty. The arugula salad had a nice dressing that accentuated the flavor and the walnuts added were good, with shaved pecorino cheese. I would return here in a heartbeat.
All around great experience, drinks, pizza, appetizers, staff, all top notch. Definitely going back there again. I even made a mistake ordering and the staff was nice enough to make adjustments for me.
Alles in allem waren wir sehr zufrieden, das Essen war zwar etwas teuer dafür aber sehr gut, jedoch war es im Restaurant sehr laut.
Great escape from the Manhattan crowds and prices. Great BYOB policy, $12 corking fee.
We all loved it was cozy and everything thing we ordered was delicious.
Will return and recommend
If you like good pizza (and let's face it, who doesn't?!) go to Forcella.
Great pizzas, good service, lovely atmosphere and all at a reasonable price.
Would definitely return.
We saw they had mixed reviews on Yelp - some people love their food here and some people were not thrilled - and decided to go anyways. So glad we did! The pizza is super good! We had some pizza with jalapeno on it and another pizza with a ton of arugula on it. The jalapeno one wasn't super hot but definitely spicy and a unique taste. The arugula one was a little soggy in the middle but still super good. We also really liked the garlic bread, although we thought it was weird that the appetizer order came with only three pieces...how often are 3 people eating together? Especially since the tables were set up for two people each and then pushed together to accommodate larger groups...weird. Anyways, it is BYOB and it was a $12 corkage fee for our wine soooo probably won't go back but it was good! Really quiet.
I love coming to Forcella for the classic margherita pizza. The fried Montanara is great too!
Not my first time at Forcella. It's always a pleasure to return. Food is top notch and my son loves the meatball pizza. My tip is DO NOT leave without trying the Tiramisu, a very nice take on my Sicilian childhood. Ciao Ciao!!!
Forcella ranks in my top 5 best neapolitan pizza spots in NYC. Truly great pizza. The dough has the perfect chewy to crunchy ratio and the ingredients are very fresh.
Didn't need a reservation and service was ok but not great
Reminded us of the pizza we had in Naples. Definitely will be back again.
I absolutely loved it!!! We went about 5:30pm and it was perfect!!! The host, was not only handsome, but very gracious!! His Italian accent was the right touch being a host/waiter. It will make you feel like you're in Italy. Brick oven and all!! I will definitely be returning. The ONLY reason I rated the food 4 stars is because I was a little disappointed the amount of food was so little. However, I did leave feeling comfortable and not overly full. But a little more would have nice.
Another friendly restaurant offering outstanding neapolitan-style pizzas.
I had read good reviews about Forcella before dining there but did not know really what to expect. Once there, I was impressed with the quality of the ingredients in the pizzas, which explains their somewhat steep price. Still worth every bite, but not something I would necessarily rush back to eat either. The building that the restaurant resides in is a hole-in-the-wall, but I think that's also part of the charm! We ate with my 11-month old, and the restaurant was very accommodating to him.
always great to be here. We love this place! When you visit Brooklyn dont forget to visit this restaurant!
The pizza was really amazing, thin and crispy, perfectly cooked. The staff is very friendly.
as always I love this place. Best pizza for sure and great service! Neighborhood gem
A delicious twist on pizza with numerous unconventional varieties. Casual chic dining room with attentive service. The Williamsburg location is capturing the ambience of the neighborhood, a younger energetic vibe with good food and service.
Awesome Neapolitan Pizza! One if the best in the US and a real gem.
Their pizza is a bit soggy on the bottom and the service was very slow, there was only 3 other occupied tables. We were the last ones in there and the service was still slow, had to wave my hand to get their attention. Probably will not go there again. There are other gourmet pizza places with better service.
The pizza was very good just wish it wasnt so soggy. It would have been amazing if the crust was crispy. It was still enjoyable.
really a gem..glad i found it...will be back for sure!
The restaurant is on a smaller side and tables are set pretty close together, but we were having an early dinner so there were very few people. The food was excellent, we made custom pizza and while one of my ingredients didn't make in to my pizza I was pretty happy nonetheless. We ended the evening with very tasty cappuccinos and Angioletti Alla Nutella, which is not only big enough for two but also beyond amazing! Can't wait to go back and try the rest of their menu!
