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...More

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!

Forcella is an Italian pizzeria and trattoria featuring a menu of nearly 20 Neapolitan pies made in a wood-fired oven. Located in the heart of Williamsburg, Forcella is known for bringing the authentic Neapolitan tradition of flash-frying pizza to New York. Featuring wood-fired pizzas, several fried pies, antipasti, pasta and decadent desserts, Forcella’s menu stands out by marrying authentic Italian ingredients with locally sourced Brooklyn products like brisket from neighboring barbecue purveyor Fette Sau and Mike’s Hot Honey. Set in an intimate and charming space, Forcella is more than your neighborhood delivery spot. It’s a culinary experience with unobstructed views of pizzaiolos manning the wood-fired oven and the occasional flashy air toss. The walls are lined with exposed brick and Old World photographs to transport guests to a true Napoli pizzeria. Forcella is perfect for hosting large parties, providing quality pizza for lunch, dinner and late night.
