The original Sorbillo in Napoli via del Tribunali since 1935 still stands today and nearby, in the original house of his aunt, Gino opened “The House of Pizza,” a meeting place for the soul and cult of the city, devoted to his family, pizza and Naples.
Great pizzas, super nice looking place, decent prices...I will be back!
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 :)
One of the few places in NY where you know you can’t go wrong, no matter what you pick in the menu. Amazing food and reasonable prices. Strongly recommended!
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 :(
Delicious authentic Neapolitan pizza! As simple as that.
Love this restaurant. Great food and service. Been there a few times and I M never disappointed. We will keep coming back again and again. If you get a chance to try this restaurant, you won’t be sorry.
Ho prenotato per la cena del 1 gennaio un tavolo per 7 persone....arrivati davanti al locale in perfetto orario ABBIAMO TROVATO CHIUSO dopo aver confermato una seconda volta tramite opentable..... GRANDE DELUSIONE...anche perché i ristoranti della strada erano tutti APERTI
Ottimo ristorante pizzeria soprattutto per chi vuole mangiare la vera pizza
Great authentic Neapolitan style pizza. Just like they make em in Naples, Italy.
Real pizza has arrived in NY, bufala is excellent
Crust was same as in Milan but cheese tomato sauce & salami were awful
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.
Very good quality pizza. Ingredients shine.
Ambience was awful bright lights and TVs playing servers didn’t seem to have a clue food took forever meatballs and pizza we’re OK
Great pizza & eggplant parmigiana in a quiet setting.
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.
Delicious real Neapolitan pizza and Peroni on draft!
This pizza is like a trip directly to Naples. The food is great, the staff very friendly. Can't wait to come back!
What more can I say about this pizzeria? If you like real Italian pizza, this is legit.
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.
Amazing Neapolitan style pizza! Very authentic, just like their spot in Naples.
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!!!
one of the best Pizzas in Manhattan. Very "Neapolitan". Very genuine ingredients. Amazing Staff. Highly suggested!! enjoy the real Neapolitan Pizza in NYC !!
Great experience! Feels like you’re back in Italy. Waitress Serena and manager Nino were great, very hospitable and accommodating! Looking forward to the next time.
Great food (not only pizza), great Staff, cozy restaurant! General manager Nino very friendly and welcoming.
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!
Vera pizza napoletana a New York. Il resto sono tutte imitazioni venute male
Unfortunately, Not all the menu’s items available. Ridiculously small portion of wine.
Calzone Napoletano very good. Really horrible espresso. Service was very friendly and happy!
Been wanting to try this place for a while, very good. Nice for special ocassions!
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.
FANTASTIC!! The pizza brings back the memories of bella Napoli! But it is not just pizza!! All the dishes are authentic ITALIAN!! Prepared by Italians!
Pizza was great. Nice bargains on Italian wines as well. If the salads and appetizers were a bit upgraded, the place would get 5 stars. Overall a good experience and we will definitely be back for the pizzas!
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.
