Gino Sorbillo is a Napolitan Pizzaiolo appreciated in the world for his verve and eclecticism. His father is the nineteenth of 21 children, all pizzaioli.

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.

This was our first visit to Sorbillo, but it will not be our last. We live fairly close and I can’t believe we’ve never eaten there before.

We began with two starters: the ricotta-stuffed zucchini flowers and the escarole. Both were generous servings and delicious. We especially enjoyed the escarole because we had never had it prepared with the olives, capers, and anchovies before.

We then had the Naduja pizza and the squid ink linguine with seafood. The pizza was perfect: a very soft crust and wonderfully spicy toppings. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the seafood was delicious.

We will definitely be back!

Pizza was good, but gets a little soggy in the center, Gnocchi could be a little more fluffy & tasty (was dense)

La mia amica aveva chiesto una pizza con friarielli, olive, capperi e acciughe. Peccato mancassero gli ultimi tre ingredienti. Il proprietario ha voluto fare il furbo con noi pensando che volessimo fare i furbi con lui. Non voleva nemmeno fare lo sconto. Bastava un “ci dispiace”, invece il nulla e il fastidio. Questo l’atteggiamento di chi tanto i tavoli li riempie lo stesso. Ci siamo impuntate per principio e lui per questi ha perso la faccia. Sarebbe bastato davvero un sorriso e poche cose. Invece...

One of our favorite pizza places in the city. The dough is light and fluffy. Never greasy. Service is always super nice. Wish I they had a cider option but other than that it’s great.

I’m gluten free so I was a bit disappointed at the fact they don’t serve gluten free pizza only pasta. I had an amazing pizza in Naples Italy and assumed the NY location will have it as well. Other than that the food and service was great!

My boyfriend and I love margherita pizza and this place blew us away! They were very accommodating as well when we asked for more basil. The staff will also seat you bases on the occasion which I think was great!

Food is excellent -- probably the one of the best pizza places I've had in the city. The service on the other hand is quite poor. We had to ask for water twice, service was remarkably slow and we had to flag down our waiter for anything (ordering, dessert, check, water, water). The restaurant was not even packed enough to warrant the lack of appropriate service (Monday night, half the restaurant full). The dessert was also excellent though.

We were happy to eat here after a trip to Naples, where Sorbillo got started. I thought the pizza with Buffalo Mozz. was very good. We also had a salad, and the Tiri Miso, which was most excellent. My only complaint was a large table of folks close by had too much to drink and I just couldn't hear anymore. It was a nice time out. Wait staff and management were great.

The bottom part and the border was somewhat burnt and it affected the taste itself. Someone used to the original Sorbillo in Naples spots this instantly. I don't know whether it was just a case, because of excessive oven temperature, or lack of know how. All the rest was definitely good and is a benchmark in North America, though for such a price I expect the oven temperature to be correct.

Having just returned from Italy, it was lovely to be in this very Italian pizza restaurant. Their attention and care with the food reminded me of what I love about Italy, and overall I was impressed. The food was also excellent. The only very small things were: The happy hour wine was $7, which felt a little steep (given that I just got back from Italy and excellent wines were $5-6); and that one of the waiters kept trying to take our dishes away before we were done eating them, but I think he was trying to be overly helpful, and I don't fault him for that. The staff was very friendly and I would recommend the place.

Molto costoso senza meritarlo perché la pizza non ha nulla di uguale a quella mangiata in Italia anzi era pessima oltre che carbonizzato il fondo. Per non parlare del condizionatore che gocciolava acqua sui miei vestiti, mi hanno spostato di tavolo senza scusarsi. Sconsigliato e deludente

Eravamo in quattro persone e sono state servite solo 3 pizze. Dopo 5 minuti abbiamo fatto notare che mancava una pizza ed è stata portata solo dopo altri 15 minuti.
La cameriera per trovare una scusa ci ha detto che i pizzaioli avevano fatto cadere la pizza mancante... indecente!

Has gone downhill. The pizza is really good, but the service was extremely slow, the waiters wouldn't stop checking up on us without much coordination amongst themselves, and the place was nearly empty

Una sola parola per descriverli: subdoli.
Cibo buono, non sono in grado di valutare se la pizza fosse realmente napoletana o no, ma era buona e digeribile.
Inacettabile che ti portino, senza informarti prima, una bottiglia di acqua naturale che faranno pagare $8 (+ tasse), quando in tutti gli US portano acqua del rubinetto se non richiesto diversamente.
Subdolo, inserire una mancia del 20% nel pre-conto (non indicazione, ma proprio inserita nella somma) e poi dire che non è inclusa. Mai successo in altri ristoranti. PESSIMO comportamento!

I am an italian living in NY and have been to the original sorbillo in Naples. This is nothing like it. Also the food is very Americanized.
I had the saltimbocca alla romana. The real saltimbocca is veil it has no mushrooms and no cream. Call it chicken with mushrooms or something else, but not saltimbocca.
Also the frittatina di pasta which is a typical Neapolitan street food, was very dry.

I like Sorbillo in Naples and will keep on going there when in Italy, and if I want Americanized Italian food I will go to the many so called Italian restaurants in NY.

The staff was very efficient and nice.
