We had the avocado salad and the calzone and both were excellent! We sat outside and it was comfortable but noisy because of the traffic on 12th street at Broadway.

The pizza is good but the volume of the music is insanely loud and makes it hard to carry a conversation. Too bad.

Great neighborhood pizza spot. Didn’t love my pizza but could tell it was good if I ordered something with different toppings. The shrimp and bean appetizer is phenomenal. Will come back again

Terrible experience. We were seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. Salad had 2 small pieces of cheese and barely any dressing. Pizza was undercooked so much that I was afraid to eat the crust because of the raw dough in the middle. Terrible service (had to flag the waiter down every time we needed anything...never even came to greet us....finally flagged him down after waiting another 20 min). The place is loud, staff is rude, food is subpar

The pizza here is quite authentic and good… so that means fast with their hot oven. Ordered a basic pie with the additions of prosciutto and arugula… $4 extra on the prosciutto for just a few thin slices … and $3 for the arugula… especially too pricey considering a fair amount was yellow and none seemed fresh and bright… def tired greens. I pointed that out to the server… no response… and no deduction on bill… tho the pizza a quality pie I feel that was fairly poor customer service …. Many many pizza places in NYC… might not return to this one anytime soon

Stick with appetizers and pizza

We were happy to get an easy reservation at Ribalta, and excited because we respect the authenticity of their Italian menu. We are aware their pizzaiolo is real-deal: The pizza looks and smells amazing. We have enjoyed it thoroughly in the past, and it is like a trip to Italy in the village.
Their appetizers are mouth-watering delicious and well executed. Our mistake was not sticking with the pizza as our main course.
We were romanced by the sound of their pastas and opted for the Scialatelli Alle Vongole and Gnocchi Frutti di Mare - both of which were tasty. The pasta in both cases was fresh/housemade, however not recommended due to over-saucing, clams oversized (not true “vongole”) honestly not the freshest seafood in general, and worst of all, grit from the clams that made all our dishes challenging to eat.
The staff is kind, well trained and focused on the guests, and the location was nice - we sat outside and of course noise from the city is expected but otherwise enjoyed the night. Will return, but stick with the pizza.

Its a great place in NY to get Neapolitan pizza. Place has great ambience.

We ordered pesto nyoki which was yumm. So were the 2 pizza we ordered. Pizza had that good bite and chewiness that you expect from a Neapolitan style.

Our server Sara was also helpful and knew about the menu.

For sure a great recommendation for pizza in Manhattan

Food and Sri man were great. Staff was good.
They are forgettable though. Some one took our plates but never came back with new ones for the meal. Had to flag someone down. Other than that it was great.

We had just had a fancy $300 dinner and found ourselves hungry again 2 hours later LOL before going to Regal movies up the street we decided we wanted pizza. I searched top rated Neopolitan in the area & Ribalta popped up. Nice, airy, open space with friendly staff….pizza was quick and delicious. We had the “ciliegino” off the pizza in palo Rossa section of the menu. So good! We will come back for full dinner next time

La piazza è eccezionale, migliore di quella di molte pizzerie in Italia, il locale carino, con musica italiana (persino sigle dei cartoni cantate da Cristina D’Avena !) e un servizio gentile. Assolutamente da non perdere!

I come in from Long Island, about an hour drive to this magnificent, authentic Italian restaurant GEM located in a vibrant are in NYC East Village.

The owner Rosario and his amazing staff are outstanding.

The pizzas and homemade spaghetti reminds me of Naples and Sicily, simple with the very best ingredients! The flavors of all the dishes are fantastico!!

I rarely write reviews but in this case they deserve five stars across-the-board.


I hope I can still get a reservation after this review. Mangia!

Bravo Ribalta!!

We booked an early dinner for a large party and the restaurant staff were phenomenal. I appreciated their patience in taking our orders with all of the activity going on (coming from us!) They had our table ready to go as soon as we arrived.

The food was fantastic. Every dish was very fresh, and felt like each dish was made with love. My favorites were the roasted octopus, Doc pizza, the calamari, and the veal ragu. Thank you Ribalta for making the birthday celebrators in our party feel special.
