Before I came to eat at Bella Brutta, seemed to me a Neapolitan style pizzeria. But in reality, it’s not. Besides, the some cicetti, plus the seven pizzas and few Italian desserts in the menu such as Tiramisu, Cannoli and Panna Cotta. Hence, it’s an Italian restaurant with its own style. Due to, the wood fired pizzas that are made here, are unique. But with some influences. That is to say, the pizza dough is lighter than the Neapolitan style and is crispier. On the other hand, it’s a fact that at Bella Brutta use Italian flavors to make its pies and food. However, these kind of pizzas and dishes, I saw it, in famous restaurants in New York, such as Roberta’s pizza and Pasquale Jones. And, don’t get me wrong, they are not cheating. In fact, these are influences to create their own beautiful Italian food.
