I'm really sorry to say that last Saturday ( January the 3rd) experience was really bad! I tried Sorbillo's pizza before ( I'm italian and it was recommended to me by a couple of people from Naples) and it was good, so I was really excited to take my husband to try it ! First of all the service was very slow ( there was only one waitress) but more importantly the food was bad! We had 2 appetizers ,fiori ripieni fritti ( which were hot outside and cold inside!!!) , and crocchette di patate. The bier that my husband ordered arrived after the appetizers. Both Pizza were drowning in tomato sauce, so much that we had to move some out to be able to eat the pizza. I know italian pizza and I also know their pizza but this was like I never had experienced before. We both left half of it . So sorry about the review, but it kind of ruined the date.

I had a wonderful experience and I felt welcomed. The atmosphere was nice and calm.
I ordered a calzone napoletano which was delicious. I would come back again :)

i had been to Sorbillo before and the pizza was delicious. I'm afraid that that's no longer the case. The pizza was under-cooked and barely warm. We sent it back and it was redelivered to the table in less than 5 minutes -- still luke warm. The server was irritated and disinterested. Its a shame, because the atmosphere is nice (for a pizza place) and the prices are reasonable. too bad :(

The food was absolutely amazing. The crust on the pizza was easily the best I have ever had. My boyfriend and his parents are from Italy and they too agree it was one of the best pizzas they have ever had! I definitely recommend this place and cannot wait to go back again.

Really good neapolitan pizza. The dough was amazing and a great variety of pizzas. If I had to critique something I would say that the wines were not great and it's beer and wine only so it's not like you can revert to a go to mixed drink if wine isn't doing it for you. Definitely hits the mark on food but could up their game on the drinks side. Overall, I was very happy with Sorbillo.

Coming to a reasturant that charges more than $20 for a personal pizza we had high expectations. When we were first seated our table was very small and wobbly. We asked to switch to the table next to us that was not wobbly , immediately staff seemed to be annoyed and a bit rude. We got zucchini flowers as an app, they were awful. Service was poor, staff was not very friendly. Quite honestly we will not being going back again, not worth the money. I have been to Sorbillo’s in Naples, Italy and is not the same. Too expensive for location.

The pizza at this place is AMAZING. Hands down the best pizza I've ever had. It's Nepolitano certified and the cooks/waiters etc. are straight from Italy. It doesn't get more authentic than that. Also, the pizzas are not overly expensive.

Da Napoletano buona la pizza, anche se troppo Piccola rispetto a quella di Sorbillo in Italia. Aumentate la circonferenza come quella originale. Per il resto tutto ok.

La pizza non è sempre pizza. Quella di Sorbillo a New York non fa rimpiangere la pizza italiana. Ma italiana vera. Anche la parmigiana di melanzane e la mozzarella in carrozza erano degne del loro nome e della tradizione italiana.

Sorbillo is truly a hidden gem. Well situated on the Bowery between Bond and Great Jones, this is a perfect spot for true regional Neapolitan “peasant food”.Greeted by the knowledgeable and gregarious maitre d’ MENO, one is immediately made comfortable for an outstanding dining experience. Aftera friendly word and suggestion from master chef Marco, a glass of wine allows one to relax- Inmy case welcome after a long day of surgery. The antipasti and salads are superb- fresh, with true Neapolitan dressing, herbs snd the best capers I think I’ve ever had. My favorite pasta special is spaghetti allo oglio- with just a bit spicy (Calabrian chili flakes). The scarole contorni with the special house olive oil and capers is extraordinary. The room is festive, but sometimes a bit too energetic. La moglie (my wife) is always pleased with the excellent wine , service and her favorite gnocchi.Coming from a family in the restaurant business for two generations, I’m a very harsh critic. As demanding with the knife and fork as I am in the operating room, I recommend this restaurant without hesitation. Please be sure to thank Marco on the way out- he is truly a Neapolitan master; Meno runs a great room with individualized attention to detail and a great non obtrusive touch. If you can’t get to Sorbillo in la Bella Italia, please get down tothe Bowery and have a slice of La Dolce Vita!!!

Me and my dad had dinner here after a long day.
As i tried Sorbillo also in my hometown, Milano, I can say that : the taste of the pizza in general is pretty the same (which means really good) , wherease the options of different pizzas are fewer in NYC and you could be more generous with the ingredients.. I had a margherita gialla and there were litterally 4 tomatoes. Also the prices are way different than the ones here but I understand.
Finally I enjoyed my dinner, great job!

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.
