First time at Sorbillo and we had high expectations.
Wrong orders,long wait . Piazza dough was good, but too much tomato sauce that covered any other ingredients. I ordered the diavola , but in the entire pizza there were only 3 little pieces of it.
First and last time for me and my friends.

Pizza really good but service terrible. Everyone in the restaurant was complaining. Took 30 minutes and multiple times asking to get our change back from the bill. Drinks delivered after food and after multiple times requesting them. Appetiser was forgotten about and we had to ask. Manager didn't seem to care/do anything about it.

Dishonest. Do not go. They do not honor open table points. I called after I left to tell them my points didn’t go through and they all of a sudden couldn’t speak English. They would not answer the question. Very frustrating.

Second time to Sorbillo and brought the family this time (grown adults!) Love their authentic Neopolitan pizza and wonderful recipes. The meatballs appetizer is fantastic. It’s so nice that they have a great wine selection with very good, affordable wines! Great family, great service. My favorite in nyc for authentic Italian pizza. We’ll be back

Great location/seating!
Our server was great - I believe Mario was his name - but they didn't start making the pizza until we finished our appetizer, which was strange and so we ended up staying there way longer than planned
The Margherita con Bufala was okay but the Marinara Pizza was way better - pizza was slightly burnt but still good

We’ve heard about Sorbillo from our friends who went to Italy. Their review was basically like that: “this is the best pizza in the world, we’ve spent an hour in extreme heat waiting to get in, but it was worth every minute”.
So, we came to the place with quite an expectation! And it met it just perfectly. One thing you need to realize before going: this is not pizza Americans used to, this is exactly Italian style and it’s really good!

Been there twice and both times the service was spotty. Most of the waitstaff look miserable, stressed out and clueless.
Both times no one helped to seat us, we stood in a crowded area by the bar waiting. Eventually we made our way through a packed bar area and asked someone who clearly worked there. They were extremely unhelpful and it took asking three different people before we were seated.
There seems to be only one female server who knows what she’s doing and she’s great! The food is too good for them to have such bad service.
Some helpful tips;
Hire a host!
Fix the air (it was hot as hell!)
Train your staff better

We thought it would be a discovery after tasting the excellent pizza at Sorbillo in Napoli, for which we had to wait in line for some time. Here there was no line and the pizza was disappointing. Too much tomato sauce on the margheriha; the crust was charred on the bottom but it was too flimsy and underbaked. The calabrian nduja did not resemble what we had in Napoli and it was not spice at all.
A serious disappointment.
If it wasn't for our lovely server who made an effort in spite of the disappointing food, it would have been a complete fiasco.

Pizza took 35 minutes.
Server disappeared after taking out order.
Salty sauce, undercooked mushrooms and thick crust.
There are definitely better Neapolitan pizza places in the city.

Went to the original location in Naples last year. It was much better. The crust at the NY location was very soggy and the pizza was watery. There was only one leaf of basil on the margherita pizza. Very disappointed. This place will not make it in new York York if it doesn't significantly improved. Service was very slow... we had to ask the waiter 3 times to bring another round of drinks and we were there on Saturday at noon when it first opened so there were hardly any people there. The telltale sign of a good pizza place is the line that forms when opening... no matter the day or the weather. Pepe's in New Haven ALWAYS has a line (I went today, Tuesday 7/3 at 10:30am and there was a line forming). Plus very limited pizza menu. There was no line and no crowd at Sorbrillo's. I tried it... I won't go back. I'd rather go to Lombardi's when in NYC (32 Spring St)... don't go to Sorbrillo!!!

We had great pizza the first time that we ate here. We thought it came the closest to the pizzas that we had in Naples. This time not so much. The pizza was kind of flabby, and it was extremely slow to come out of the kitchen. The service was erratic; we felt as if we’d been forgotten at various points. There was a very large party Of Italians dining in the restaurant that night so perhaps it was just an off night. But there are so many other good pizza places that we won’t be in a hurry to come back.
