Williamsburg may have more pizza options than Arthur Avenue, but Forcella manages to offer a different twist on Italy’s most celebrated culinary gift to the world: montanara, or fried pizza. They also offer a dozen different wood-fired Neapolitan pies (both red and white) as well as delectable, doughy desserts like Angioletti alla Nutella (deep fried pizza dough strips) and their 12″ Nutella pie.
Inside, the walls are lined with artsy food pics as well as images of the old world. Patrons are treated to an unobstructed view of pizzaiolos preparing Neapolitan pies, which come out in under two minutes. If you want to put your forcella (the Italian word for fork) to use, they have appetizers, pasta dishes, salads, and other desserts. If you’re only going to try one non-pizza dish, make it the truffle fries.
