  • Try the mind-blowing Montanara pizza, deep-fried and finished in a wood-fired oven for a chewy yet featherlight crust. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • Don't fret Motorino closing. Forcella is in a league of it's own!
  • Fried pizza, where have you been all my life?!
  • Angioletti Alla Nutella. The best dessert I've encountered in a loooooong time.
  • Try the Bagnoli - Neo style pizza with potato and pancetta.
  • Fried pizza
  • Save room for dessert, the Nutella pizza is to die for
  • Fried pizza..get topping on each..a different one.
  • Sure, the food here is incredible, but it's almost impossible to get the wait staff to care about you after you're done eating. If you find yourself waiting too long, don't be afraid to flag 'em down.
  • Among the best dishes is the montanara fritte, a pie thats both fried and oven-fired. It emerges from the oven chewy with crispy pockets of air in the homemade crust
  • Try: The montanara, a margherita made with a crust shaped and flash-fried before being topped and finished in the wood-burning oven, is a popular choice.
  • The Marinara a la Starita pie ($9) is "a three-component dish: a zesty, herbal tomato sauce amped up with garlic and spices atop a perfectly pliant, charred crust with a stray leaf of basil."
  • Try the pizza!
  • I've never gotten anything here that wasn't amazing. Close your eyes, point at the menu, order that.
  • #NYTM recommended
  • You're going to be tempted to tried the fried pizza. The regular pie is better.
  • Always. Get. The. Special.
  • If the special pizza happens to be fig, prosciutto and gorgonzola, GET IT. So freaking good. And the crust is so chewy and perfect.
  • the fried pizza is a nice specialty. also recommend the calzone!
  • First-class pizza in all respects, but there are a couple of unique items here. Try the montanara, a pizza whose crust is first FRIED(!) then baked. The carbonara is an interesting brunch option.
