Potato & Egg Pie at Ria Bella Pizza

Who loves pizza in Greenpoint? Well good news – Ria Bella, a new pizzeria just opened at 1049 Manhattan Ave (between Freeman St and Eagle St). But Ria Bella is not just any other slice spot – it specializes in hard to find Sicilian specialties (think square pies), plus they offer some great deals for lunch and game days.

For a girl with roots in Sicily, just a look at Ria Bella’s menu has me drooling. The Caponata, a dish I grew up on, is a sweet and sour eggplant spread that should be served in a bottomless dish in my opinion.

Sicilians are masters at serving multiple types of carbs in one dish (this is a good thing) – like Ria Bella’s Potato & Eggs Pie (pictured). Getting a pizza crust perfectly crisp while cooking an egg on top is not an easy task and thus a hard to find topping – but not in Greenpoint anymore.

Let’s talk Sfincione, not an easy to pronounce but a very easy to eat pizza that has anchovies, bread crumbs and caciocavallo cheese on top. This was a treat my Grandma (aka Nonna) made in a square pan growing up and I cannot wait to sink my teeth into it again.

You will have to go in and try the rest of the menu, which has vegetarian friendly options as well.

Let’s talk DEALS: Lunch in Greenpoint just got easier and more affordable because Ria Bella is offering 12″ personal pies for only $8 Tuesday-Friday between 12-4pm. And on Game Days (Thursdays and Sundays) buy one pie and get the second half off.

Try it and let us know what you think!

    This place is no better than a low-end Chinese joint. They plastered the entire neighborhood with unwanted flyers that ended up in the streets as litter. Don’t be fooled.

    I don’t mind if you need to do paid advertising, but don’t lie to me. Sure, the tiny lunch pizza for 8 bucks is great if you don’t have a job. But if you do, the specialty pizza is between 26-30 bucks…Lucali is cheaper than this place. How do you open up a pizza place in Greenpoint and start charging Grimaldi prices? I can’t justify it.
