Fratelli's Coal Fired Pizza
« on: March 01, 2013, 10:41:05 PM »
WTF! STRIKE 4 On the coal fired !! >:(
This is getting ridiculous. Its obviously a fad with knowone having a clew as to what the hell is going on, or how to cook a pizza in my last 4  reviews in any of these new coalfired joints. Same deal here asked what kinda flour ? "Dont know they make it out back, I only  make Pizzas" how hot? "really hot 700"
I walk in get excited and again let down. The huge Earthstone Oven sits there as you walk in I think it was at least the 140 well over 50" inside and the door looked very large.
1 guy making and baking at 1 oclock ? I watched him burn pie after pie never cooking a single second off the floor or more than 1/2 turn during the  4 min bake. Ordered my standard trial meatballs, wings and 2 pies The Broc Rabe and Sausage white pie  was not as burt? and tasted good. The Pepperoni was large size cut in 1/2 so decent quality think its what I use ? nice fresh sauce Sliced round block  mozz down first the blob the sauce. This place could be very good just about 30 seconds off the time and 20 off the floor wha la I felt like jumping behind there and showing him how it should /could look !
All in all, This was  my Favorite between Paulies, Anthonys, Tommys, and Fratelli's. The Meatballs were marginal, I  Prefered Anthonys on these oversize  balls
Best wings were here. not buried in onion bed and cooked nice not soggy. I know coal oven pie is well done ?  But these pies were way over done ! Scottr and everyone would you serve this ?  eat or send back? Have a peek ! I think I will hold off on these places for a while I am getting frustrated!  ??? ???

Have you ever been to Luzzo's on 1st ave - right around the corner from Motorino? It's always been one of my favorites.
Pizza is not bread.

Throw some coal in the Scooby Doo van and show them how it's done!

Seriously though, there two coal places around here ive been to and one is excellent and has been open for 5 or so years. The other is newer and not so good.
Back to being a civilian pizza maker only.

Just freakin get to New Haven NOW!   All these places suck!    It does seem like the best coal oven pizza in the NY area is luzzos.    but... your already basically eating that at vesta but in a WFO.     

Makes me realize how good we have it at Max and Leo's here in boston.   That oven isnt easy to use, but they at least get it right up here.

 Yes the dough did have potential . And yes its hard ! Especially if you used to working a gas deck oven which  was obvious today . Stretch was good ! cooking dough maybe 60% ISH? Not so good.
I'll give luzzos a shot, but please give these newbies a little training  let them make 100 batches of dough and 100 pies before you cut em loose my goodness!  would be great  maybe a picture on the wall. So they can see a finished pie ? This guy did speak english but not very interested in chatter that's for sure.
Scott123 let me know when the new haven trip is scheduled I am ready!

Wow, those are some burned...I would find it difficult not to send back. I must say, you are a generous  & fair critic & I am impressed that you really wanted them to pull it off.
I'm surprised you didn't offer to pay extra to let you make your own :)

I agree with Craig, Luzzo's is really good. When the wait is too long at Motorino you can often get a seat there right away..
