    Ribalta prepare the best original Italian pizza in Manhattan. The flour is imported directly from Italy as well the ingredients. I'm Italian and I live in NYC. When I crave pizza, the only destination is Ribalta Overall, the food is of great quality, taste and original!

    I didn't expect such a lovely ambiance for what was listed as "a pizza place!" The tiles on the wall just mezmerized me! And the service, the food and wine list were just great. The avocado salad was so fresh -- and the citrus was just the perfect touch. I loved our pizza -- just the right size for 2 people and so fresh also.

    I was served hazelnut ice cream in place of vanilla with my desert.I am severely allergic to hazelnut! Our table was so dark I couldn't see that it didn't look like vanilla.My daughter stopped me after a couple bites because she thought it tasted like Nutella.Managers response was bizarre.He kept offering me another dessert or a shot when what I needed was Benadryl.Waiter at least tried to bring me an anti histamine.My daughter and I left as quickly as possible to get Benadryl.I can't even believe they brought me a bill to pay.I felt very awkward and my daughter was really nervous.Manager totally avoided us leaving instead of checking on me.If you have any allergies, I would not go here.They clearly cared more about possibly being sued than me actually being okay

    Went for an after movie bite and didn’t know what to expect. Wow! First the vibe is outrageous; loud but not deafening dance music. Did someone say party? The menu is straightforward and simple; starters, salads, pasta, pizza and some ‘large plates’. We shared an Italian salad and a margarita pizza- delicious! Extensive wine list. Definitely a destination.

    I picked Ribalta for a work dinner because I had a pleasant experience during my first visit earlier in the week. We had a reservation for 6pm. It ended at 7:30pm. We arrived on time. We were forgotten after ordering a bottle of water and a beer, which I ordered on the fly (because the waitress seemed rather rushed) when the water was brought to the table; I assumed she would ask them what they wanted, but instead, she left directly after delivering the beer. We tried to politely flag someone down for nearly half an hour. When we finally managed to get someone, we had less than an hour to order appetizers, main dishes, and drinks and that time dwindled even faster when the food came out. I was disappointed that we were rushed to leave. They rushed our plates from the table, even when there was still food on them. They rushed us the bill. They rushed to clear the table even as we were standing up to put on our jackets. I do not think this was fair, especially given that we had no one to serve us. I know restaurants are busy, and that sometimes things get crazy, but I was disappointed with the service.

    Food was great, but the service felt rushed and lack attention from our server. Indoor dining sounded like a dance club and had a very difficult time hearing or have a conversation. Recommend, weather permitting eat out doors.

    WORST, most incompetent/unprofessional restaurant experience in my life. Our reservation was 8pm. They gave us the table at 8:30. From 8:30 until we left they kept pressuring us to order - never seen this. At 9:40 when we were about to order a 2nd round of food/drinks they tell us they cant serve us anymore and we have to leave?! #1 no one told us there was a time limit when booked. #2 they should have given us the table on time. #3 even with all that, you NEVER kick customers out otherwise DONT BE in the restaurant business. The waitress & manager were extremely rude and INCOMPETENT. I will make sure me or anyone I know never steps foot here.

    Both Pizzas were underdone to the point of a wet crust in the majority of the middle and not meted cheese. I was bad enough they comped one of two pizzas, totally disappointed.

    Even though we had an 8:30 pm reservation we got our table at 9:10 pm and the staff was extremely rude to us throughout the process and kept telling us to move out of the way even though the entire entry way was extremely crowded and we had a reservation. It was a very chaotic experience to get our table and would recommend that you don’t go there on a weekend if you’re extremely hungry and expect to get your table asap.

    Oh wow the pizza was so good!! The dough was so light and airy and had the perfect amount of tang. We did a red and a white and while I preferred the red, both were excellent. The sauce on the red was so fresh tasting and light. Nice selection of wines by the glass.

    Enjoyed the ambiance and table. Busboy asked if we wanted bread when he delivered our burrata but it never came. Water was never filled, even after asking. True that pizzas were delicious , (crust of one was a little underdone...edges fine, center soggy) but very tasty. Dessert fruit and ice cream was delicious and a generous portion. I suspect they're understaffed, although it wasn't that crowded, but the waiter was clearly not having a good day and it showed.

    We went because we read it was #3 in the USA. The pizza is good but not the best I have had - the crust was soggy in spots, toppings were fresh but nothing stood out as being a heavenly pizza experience. And a pizza for 4 people is $35, that seems high to me. There are better pizzas in NYC.
