The last time someone tried to sling Neapolitan slices in the East Village, it was 2 Bros.’s short-lived Totale Pizzeria. But Forcella is hoping to succeed where los dos hermanos failed and has converted part of its dining room into Slice of Naples, a takeout spot serving (you guessed it) Neapolitan slices. It’ll be open from noon to 4 a.m., so, yeah, between this and Cafe Standard, the Bowery just got some pretty solid late-night/early-morning dining options.
Below is the menu as posted today. The ripiena will be your go-to if you’re a sandwich lover — it’s melted stracciatella cheese, arugula and prosciutto cotto pressed between pita-like disks of crisped dough.
Margherita – $3.50 slice / $27 pie
Mushrooms – $4 / $31
Hot salami – $4 / $31
Caprese – $5 / $38
Ripiena – $6 / $46
Special of the Day – Truffle mushroom pie $5.50 / $42
