    Pizza napoletana straordinaria , migliore ti tant’è pizzeria di Napoli Soffice, cotta perfettamente e molto digeribile Abbiamo cenato all’esterno perché nel locale c’era una festa con musica molto rumorosa Comunque vale assolutamente la pena di andarci

    We've been here countless times over the past 2 years (it's a favorite spot for us) and the noise level has always been high, but it's actually gotten much louder still. It isnt so loud that we won't go back because we do love the food and drinks, but if youre expecting a quiet Italian dinner date this would not be it (still give it a chance though and get the Nobile)

    The staff was very kind and accommodating. We sat outdoors and the service was friendly and attentive. The cocktail menu is interesting (Il Divo was especially good). The pizzas were delicious (especially the Capricciosa)- and filling. (There were two of us and we both took home half a pie). The Brussels sprouts were delicious - highly recommended if you want an appetizer. Desserts were good as well - the pannacotta was very light and creamy. The frutti di bosco was basically a nice bowl of delicious gelato with berries on top. Would definitely go back!

    Restaurant is WAY too loud inside. They should advertise upfront that thedining area the music level resembles a NIGHT CLUB or a loud bar more than a restaurant. You have to scream to hear the person next to you. We had to ask to move outside because it was impossible to have a conversation. Outside it was hot and had no ambience, but it was the only option. The bottom of the pizza was totally burned and we had to ask them to take it off the bill after showing it to them. A shame cause I used to really like this place.

    I've only ever had pizza and beer here, but i assure you it's as good as what you can get back in Italy, albeit at NYC prices. Well worth it though, and priced quite reasonably given the quality and location. La pizza da Ribalta è talmente buona che penseresti d'esserti teletrasportato in Italia! Più cara di una pizza e una birra in Italia, ma data la qualità e la location è un affare imperdibile! (Soprattutto dopo aver visto la roba che ti vendono da sbarro, ecc.)!

    Among my favorite NYC places, for great pizzas and friendly ambience. The last evening I went (we were six), service was much slower than usual, most likely due to understaffing, but this didn’t affect the quality of the food itself, with the pizzas and salads we ordered as good as ever.

    You're going there for their pizza, that's it. Their margherita rossa is terrific. Their gluten-free, vegan cheese version is also terrific but too pricey. Maybe it has to do with the rising costs of ingredients but $30 for that pie is quite high. The normal one was $18 which is fine, I easily eat it all myself. Service always falls a bit short here, they operate like a fast churning cafeteria as oppose to a high end pizza shop. If you're not bothered by it, like I said, overlook it and just come here for the delicious pizza.

    The place overall is very buzzing, and upon entry, I was nicely greeted. The service once seated wasn't that great though. I know this is to be expected in most restaurants nowadays but I still knock off points for it, and tip amount! Otherwise, we just accept this to be a new normal and it really shouldn't be. The way you are treated and served is part of the experience...and you are paying for it. On to the pizza...I got the margherita rossa and nobile (truffle). I thought the rossa was outstanding. I love the chewiness of the delicious bread and how thin it was, while still manageable for picking up and eating. You will require a second hand, but that's totally normal. The sauce was insanely delicious and the cheese was also super yummy. Overall, that pizza gets a 4.5/5. I've had slightly better bread at Mercer Kitchen so I took off half a point, but it was still the best I've had in NYC. The Nobile had too much cheese. Yes, there is such a thing even though I'm a HUGE cheese lover. I recommend going and hopefully, you'll have a great service experience.

    We live around the corner from Ribalta and are always pleased with the great food and friendly service. We chose the shaded outdoor seating for lunch on a weekday and had it to ourselves. More people chose to eat indoors.

    I booked dinner here because it was recently ranked as one of the best pizza places in the country. Uh nope! The meatball appetizer was ok. The pizza was just bad. Very thin crust that was soggy and slimy from watery cheese. Such a disappointment. Don’t bother. Service was slow and disinterested. Cocktail only ok. Probably any other pizzeria in NYC serves better pizza.

    I’ve been many times but this was the first time that the music was SO loud we had to scream at each other to have a conversation. I’m not sure if this was a Friday night thing but it wasn’t great. The servers and food were very good as usual.

    Gluten free friend said it was some of the best pizza she had ever had. Service was terrible. We waited over an hour for our food, never were given drink refills, and had to ask several employees to bring our check. We might return for take-out but I will never subject myself to the negligence that is the Ribalta service.
