The pizza was as if we had been transported back to Naples. Kind of hectic, on a Saturday night, but very welcoming staff. We had a great time, and look forward to returning.

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.

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
