    This restaurant is a good find for dining on a budget but seeking a fun and hip ambiance. Good for a date or a group. Food was good but the techno-y ambient music was a bit too loud for having conversations comfortably.

    This place is one you'd pass by without even realizing the awesomeness within! I had an event to attend nearby this restaurant & needed to take 7 industry associates to dinner before the event. I gave it a whirl & made a reservation here. I'm so glad I did! Not only is it a cool place (great decor & layout) but the food was tremendous & our waiter was on his game. I will go back for work, fun & everything in between.

    They do the Neapolitan style thin crust wood fired pizza here . Service was excellent. The Negronis were excellent. A reasonably priced wine list as well. Our plane arrived late, so we needed someplace close by where we could get a bite at 10:30 PM. This was ideal.

    The Upside: We had a mix of pizzas and pastas and all were very tasty. They were also a good place for our group of 8 and we never felt rushed, but that may have been because they sometime forgot about us. The Downside: Unfortunately, the service here was really lackluster. While the staff was nice, they just did not have their act together. They forgot multiple orders -- including my entree for about half of the mealtime and several drink orders. I had to remind them two more times before they finally cooked my pasta.

    Went here for a mom's night out with one close friend. Found the restaurant to have a fun and vibrant space. Very attentive staff and we were greeted and seated promptly. We ordered the meatballs appetizer and a personal pizza. Both were very good and they used fresh ingredients. I felt that the prices were very reasonable price for a NYC restaurant. Would definitely go back if I'm on the east side again.

    Great pizza place with fun and interesting combinations. The American pizza with fries and hot dogs is actually kind of awesome. The gluten free pizza here is pretty lacking though. It could definitely use an upgrade, it's not nearly as good as their normal pizza is.

  • The best pizza outside of Italy
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    This is the closest you will come to eating authentic, brick oven Neapolitan pizza. I have been to Italy and had the best pizza in Naples. The pizza at Ribalta is by far the best pizza I have had outside of Italy. Authentic and simply delicious. All is fresh and perfect. The eggplant parm app is light and delicious. The staff is from naples and doesn't disappoint. If you're looking to watch a soccer game this is the place to be. The crowd and ambiance is energetic. The projector screen is awesome. Makes me feel like I'm in Italy when I'm there. A lot of Italians visiting come to Ribalta for a taste of home.

    Came here on a Friday night with two girlfriends for a girls night dinner. The location was great, close to the Union Square subway stop. I would best describe the ambiance as being a chic pizza place. They had a great Italian and pizza focused menu, with upbeat lounge type music playing. We split an order of the meatballs, one Norma pizza with eggplant and cherry tomatoes, and one pizza with ricotta, mozzarella and prosciutto. All was great, will certainly be back.

    In a busy Union Square neighborhood, where the typical restaurant can be noisy and crowded, it was refreshing to find a place where you could have a conversation and enjoy great food and a lovely ambience at the same time. Large servings, good service and some of the best pizza in the City. I definitely will be back.

    Went to watch the world cup final. Excluding the fact that we had to share a very large table with people we didnt know (line seating due to the event), the experience was great. the staff was energetic and uplifting. It was really fun to watch the game here. Would definitely return for brunch or dinner, all the pizzas we tried tasted terrific!

    The pizza is really excellent and the freedom to "build your own pie" is great! On our most recent visit a friend and I tried the salmon with grilled vegetables, also excellent. The portions are generous, service is friendly and efficient and the decor is sort of "old" New York with the open oven and high sealings, lovely. I keep coming back with different guests and there has never been the slightest complaint, only compliments and a desire to return.

    The pizza was delicious! The wait staff was friendly and attentive. It was a bit noisy, but that's because they were broadcasting the world cup - not sure how the noise level is on a typical day. Regardless, I would definitely recommend if you're looking for good pizza.

    Had dinner here before going to a show at Webster Hall and, I have to say, I enjoyed one of the best pizza's I've ever had: Capricciosa-mushrooms, prosciutto,artichokes & olives. The crust was just the right combination of chewy, crusty and slightly charred. The pie looked too large to finish when it first came out but, not only did I eat the whole thing, I was wishing ther was more. Service was friendly and attentive and the room is bright and airy.

    Ribalta was recommended by Thrillist and I decided to give it a shot. Four of us dined on salad, appetizer, two pizzas and two desserts. Everything was outstanding. The Palo Pizza was divine - really divine. The tiramisu and the almond cake were perfect and the service was wonderful. They don't rush you, you can sit as long as you like which is refreshing in NYC where everyone is trying to get you in and out as quick as possible. I will say in that same breath, it took effort to get their attention for more wine because they were trying to leave us alone but it was not enough to bother us. Will be back!

    This place had a large space and a modern decor feel. The service was quick and the pizza was very good. My only critique would be the price. $2.00 for some veggie toppings and a $10 glass of wine gave me a $100 bill by the time I left (for 2 people). My suggestion would be be prepared to spend a lot.

    Had it not been for the noise level, I would have given this restaurant a better review. The service and food were excellent. The place had been recommended by Italians and the pizza was indeed authentically Neapolitan. The problem was with the music. First, it was so loud that I had to shout at the person sitting beside me to carry a conversation. Second, we went on a Friday and they had a DJ, but what they played was just really abrasive top 40 music totally inappropriate to mealtime.

    I've been to Ribalta a few times and have loved everything I've gotten- the pizzas are great, especially the truffle white pizza if you're into mushrooms. I'm personally a huge gnocchi lover and the pesto gnocchi here is divine. Usually I'm stuffed from gnocchi after a few bites but I honestly wish there was more of it on the plate with this one The portion sizes are fitting overall though! Only downer was that service was a bit slow, we can to flag down the waiter to order and get the check more than once. But that aside, I'd definitely come back here a 4th time!

    Made a 5:30 reservation for a pre-Vineyard Theatre dinner. It was a great choice, three blocks away. At that early hour the place was empty but the staff was pleasant, attentive and helpful. It has a bar and its red house wine was surprisingly tasty. The food was simple and delicious. We were looking for simple light dinner before going to the theater and we weren't disappointed. Would definitely go back.

    The pizza here is outstanding, but it's a bit it on the pricey side. My girlfriend and I ordered two Margherita Rossas, one with broccoli rabe and spicy salami ($12 + 3 + 3 = $18), one with speck ($12 + 4 = $16); we had two pieces left over. We skipped the deserts; they were all $9. It's worth it despite the price. The decor is nicer than your typical pizza joint, more like a modern, casual Italian restaurant. Another option for excellent Neopolitan style pizza is Luzzo's (1st Avenue near 13th Street).

    As titled: the food was good, but the service left something to be desired. Took a while to take our orders, the Brussels sprouts came with pancetta even though we'd asked for it to be vegetarian, and we didn't have water for a while. Pasta dishes were al dente with fresh tasting ingredients. Pizza had a pleasantly chewy crust, although I would have preferred the ingredients go a bit further to the edge. Wine was fine, nothing special.
