Profile

Gino Sorbillo is a bit of celebrity pizza chef in his hometown of Naples, where his restaurants draw big lines and his pies have been called some of that city’s best. (He also famously rebuffed the Mafia in Naples’s dicey Centro Storico neighborhood; the Camorra crime syndicate was suspected of being behind a 2012 fire at his flagship restaurant.) But New York is a pizza town, with several styles all of its own and no stranger to puffy, wet Neapolitan pies (as popularized here by the likes of Motorino and Una Pizzeria Napoletana). Nonetheless, Sorbillo’s arrival here generated some buzz among the city’s pizza nuts. His 70-seat restaurant on the Bowery specializes in the same soft, squishy crusts he’s known for in his hometown. He’s not a purist about toppings, crowning his pies with combinations like dollops of spreadable sausage ’nduja, Calabrian pecorino, and red onions and for the most expensive pie on the menu black truffle, mozzarella, quail eggs, and extra-virgin olive oil. The pizza is solid but not spectacular; still, you can make a meal of it with antipasti like bresaola carpaccio and pastas including potato gnocchi. It doesn't hurt that the wine is affordable, with plenty of bottles priced from $30 to $50.
