Crowds have flocked to Sorbillo Pizzeria, a pizza institution in its native Italy. This is the first location in New York for Gino and Toto Sorbillo, who come from a family of pizza makers.
The menu offers a wide range of pies, like the "Margherita con Bufala" with buffalo mozzarella cheese, San Marzano tomatoes, organic extra virgin olive oil, and basil; the "Scarole," a calzone pizza with escarole, olives, and smoked fresh mozzarella; and the "Portofino" with basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and black pepper.
With a four-star Yelp rating, Sorbillo Pizzeria has been getting positive attention.
Yelper Chris K., who was one of the first users to visit Sorbillo Pizzeria on January 21st, wrote: "My first bite brought me back to when I visited the original location in Napoli with my brother over a decade ago. The creaminess of the pies and the pillowy softness of the dough with a hint of a hint of wooden char gets me every bite."
Arjun P. noted: "I wanted to not love this pizza, I really did. I love good olive oil, and get sad when I can't taste the olive oil front-and-center. It was wet in the middle--almost as if the pizzaiolo was taunting me for eating with my hands. But I loved it."
Sorbillo Pizzeria is open Friday and Saturday from noon-midnight, and Sunday-Thursday from noon-11pm.

Forcella Fried Pizza--which recently debuted in DeKalb Market--focuses on fried pizza, a Neapolitan specialty.
"Fluffy, airy, saucy and crisp are some of the words that can best describe fried pizza," a statement on the website reads. "Surprisingly, considering it's fried, by no means is this fried pizza greasy."
The new spot comes courtesy of Giulio Adriani, who is also behind Forcella in Williamsburg. Options at Forcella Fried Pizza include the "Original Montanara," with tomato, mozzarella, and basil; the "Tartufo," with ham, mushrooms, smoked mozzarella, and truffle oil; and the "'Nduja" with mozzarella, spicy 'Nduja salami, and Mike's Hot Honey.
Yelp users are excited about Forcella Fried Pizza, which currently holds 4.5 stars on the site.
Yelper Katey G., who was one of the first users to visit Forcella Fried Pizza on December 15th, wrote: "It was amazing. It was crispy, chewy, and tasted like fried dough covered in 'njuja, cheese, and spicy honey. We all know this is a very unhealthy option, so be strong and move past it. It's unbelievably good and will be burned into your memory."
Yelper Scott B. wrote: "Delicious pizza spot in the DeKalb market. Highlights include fresh made as you order, including the drying of the dough. Nice options including things like prosciutto and hot honey."
Forcella Fried Pizza is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11am-10pm and Monday, Wednesday, and Sunday from 11am-9pm.
