"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."

"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."
