Forcella Douses Oven Fires, Shutters Bowery Restaurant; Take Out Counter Soldiers On

Giulio Adriani’s Neapolitan pizza chain is down by one.

Official Site

Giulio Adriani has closed the dining room at Forcella and is no longer slinging Neapolitan in the East Village, reports Bowery Boogie. A Slice of Naples, the adjoined take out counter specializing in pizza al metro, remains open. Adriani opened Forcella in 2011 and added the take-out counter last year. Pizzaiolo Adriani has had a roller coaster ride in the last few years. He opened NYC's first fried pizza restaurant, the ill-ifated La Montanara which closed early last year, as well as three locations of Forcella. The empire is now down to two restaurants: the Williamsburg outpost and the one on Park Avenue.
