Great food. The STG pizza was simply delicious and the chicken Milanese was the same. Not to mention that is is huge. Our server was very friendly and patient with us. We will definitely be back.

Food is fine but experience of eating there is miserable because you cannot hear the person you're sitting next to. Between the loud music and the acoustics that make the place deafening, it is impossible to think about the food when sitting there is unbearable. I will never go back.

Excellent bar service/staff, table server and food! Host was not as friendly as the rest of the staff, and the food is a little oh the high end, but very good quality. Was very very pleased with the gluten free crust - the best Neapolitan style we have ever had. Very pleasant experience.

This place has the most perfect and delicious pizzas! My friend is gluten intolerant and she said Ribalta’s GF pizza is one of the best she’s every tried.
Appetizers and all pizzas are really tasty as well as their desserts. Great drink selection and have to say service is a highlight too. All the service, including the host were really nice and accommodating.
A must!

Ding at Ribalta was great. Pizza was delicious. Service was excellent. Thank you Piero! I had the Ribalta pizza (Italian sausage, mozzarella and broccoli rabe) — fantastic. Desserts were excellent. Overall, a great way to spend an early New Years Eve dinner!

Pizza crust so thin it couldn’t be picked up :(
Soggy crust. Also, very noisy and slow service, although the wait staff was very congenial.
Probably will not return.

I made reservations for my mom’s 81 st birthday. We were 6 people. Upon arriving I informed the hostess it was my mom’s birthday as I had stated ahead of time when I made the reservation. She didn’t care. She walked us to the back of the restaurant in a narrow space that looked like a storage area since there were shelves of take out boxes. There were two tables pushed together one taller than the other. I asked for another table and she said this is all we have. The only way the waiter could pass was to rub his butt against my husband, squeeze through and serve food over my head to place the food on the table. I thought ok when a table clears they will move us. Nope. The waiter felt bad and informed the manager. He never came over. We asked for the check $225 later and left. We didn’t even stay for dessert. I am an Italian who loves food, loves going to restaurants and cooking. Save your money!! The food was average. There are many other restaurants who respect their customers for example Numero 28, Keste , La Peccora Bianca to name a few. This is the first poor review I have ever written so you can imagine how upset and embarrassed I was since I picked the restaurant for my mother’s birthday.

Sono stata da Ribalta con mia mamma per la cena della vigilia di Natale a base di un’ottima pizza napoletana.
Tutto molto buono. Bella esperienza.

The place had a real nice modern decor. Service was impeccable and we got a real nice table by the window. We ordered a pizza for my 3yo son early on and it came real fast. The food was amazing. We had several starters and a couple of pizzas as well as a tiramisu. Honestly, one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to (including Italy) and the pizza was exquisite. Not surprisingly, when I asked my friend from Naples about it, he said this is one of the only good authentic Italian food places in NYC.

Loved the fact that we had a female busser. That is so cool, because most of the time, if not all, it’s a male. So you go girl!!!! ;) The waitress was very knowledgeable and her suggestions were on point. The service was perfect and your food is the best Italian in the states. Thank you for paying attention to detail! IT SHOWS. :)

We had some friends in town and they wanted authentic neapolitan pizza and this was it! We all have a great time. My husband and his friend went to medical school in Italy and loved the waiter because he spoke to them in Italian. It was a fun night all around and the pizza was delicious!

The hosts need to manage seating reserved tables more effectively. Twice we have waited 20-30 minutes for our reservations and many other parties were also getting frustrated when they also had reservations that were delayed. If tables are needed, people who are lingering should be told more firmly about timing before sitting down.

The food is incredible. We all devoured our appetizers, pizza, and pasta (no room for dessert unfortunately!). Definitely get a Margherita Pizza with a little truffle oil - it was amazing. The service is outstanding as well and everyone is so friendly.

Just not very good pizza (below average under cooked and no garnish) or wine and not much staff interaction, ordered a bottle of wine and didn’t even get a taste poor. Asked for wine recommendation based on flavor profile and waiter had no idea.
