Their flash fried pizza was very tasty and very reasonably priced. For an additional 4.00 we added truffle oil and it was definitely worth it. It enhances the flavor. They have a bar and you can order drinks. Service was very fast. On street parking was not a problem within a few blocks.

When I tell people about this dimly lit WIlliamsburg establishment, they tend to shy away because of the distance then I tell them it will change your life. This perfectly thin crusted fried pizza will have you coming back for more. not too salty the cheese is perfect and the crust stays firm.

This was in our neighbourhood on our way to the subway so thought we'd try. A great little place, lovely food.

Small but nice place, maybe a little bit dark. Pizza is really Neapolitan style like in Italy. Ingredients are good and price are ok considering we are in Brooklyn. I recommend this place of you are looking for a real Italian pizza!

We made a reservation for lunch today through Open Table. Drove to the restaurant. Parked and walked to Forcella. Tried to go in but it was dark and locked up. So, sadly we couldn't eat there. Sure wish we would have received a message indicating they wouldn't actually be open to honor our reservation. Very odd experience. We asked a... More

After the disappointing time we had a Garabaldi's, we really enjoyed the whole thing there at Forcella's. Among the best pizza we've had in the U.S., a very nice house salad, and warm and friendly service. Well work going off the beaten path for this place. Ranks right there with the best pizzas in Washington, DC (e.g., 2 Amys, Pizza... More

We had pizza and pasta. Everybody enjoyed their food. The lasagne was excellent and my son never had a better pizza.

I have been a huge fan of their Manhattan venue, but had never been to their place in Brooklyn. We were not disappointed the pizzas were delicious and the prices were reasonable. The pizza with Nutella for dessert is extremely delicious so save some space for that.

I used to go to the Bowery location all the time, now it's just Park Ave and Williamsburg. I went to the Williamsburg location and got the Margherita Pizza and my friend got the Montanara (typical fried pizza napulitana). Great location right off the L train and great quality pizza. Probably the best pizza in NYC. You need a few... More
