What do you get when you combine a handsomely patio'd South Park spot with consulting from a three-time World Pizza Champ, a chef trained at NYC's Keste Pizzeria, a custom wood-fired, gold-tiled pizza oven from Stefano Ferrara, and a real-life-Italian owner whose family makes one of the most prominent olive oils in the world? The game-changer that is Buona Forchetta, and if that wasn't enough to get you going, feast your eyes below.
Buona Forchetta is cozy with a patio ideal for enjoying a glass of wine. The secret to its irresistible Neapolitan-style pizza is Sophia, a gleaming, golden, wood-fired oven designed by Stefano Ferrara in Naples, and named for the owner’s daughter. This South Park favorite has 35 pies at the ready and you really can’t make a bad call, whether you go simple with the margherita or opt for more substantial toppings. Pro tip: hold on to the olive oil and balsamic from bread service; you’ll want a puddle of it to drag your crusts through.
