Smallish upscale modern italian in Gramercy. Good Neapolitan if a bit more expensive and not quite up to Don Antonio or Keste.

The pizza wasn't bad but it didn't stand out either. The setting was rather modern, which is unusual for a pizza place. The music was a bit too clubby which I didn't like at all.

This pizza is the real deal it just literally melts in your mouth. If I close my eyes I could be in Napoli...go for the real Buffalo mozzarella you won't regret it!

when you visit this place looks like you are going to have dinner in Napoli, the Master Pizzaiolo is Italian guy who is ready to show you how a real napoletan style pizza is made. You can taste the quality of the ingredients and the freshness of the mozzarella. Dont forget to try the Angioletti pizza dessert with nutella. AMAZING!!!

Forcella serves authentic pizza Naples style on the go or as a sit down dinner. It's on the bowery and a very popular place for real authentic italian pizza downtown. The pizza Margarerita is very good as is the pizza Nutella for desert!

We went to Forcella for dinner after having visited it on Scott's Pizza Tour on our last trip to NYC. Had a nice dinner with good service and a kind of casual, hip vibe. We started with calamari. It was perfectly cooked, fresh and tender. The breading is light but crispy and that's the way I like it. For pizza,... More
