As always one of the best pizza in NYC, great selection in the meat and cheese platter! Our server Valeria was attentive and present. Will be back soon.

Importantly, as I wanted to be able to hear and be heard by my dining partner, I requested that we be seated in the quietest area of the restaurant which tends to get very lively but also loud. Fortunately, we ate on the later end of a Saturday evening (9:30) AND were seated in a little set apart area of the restaurant which definitely helped lower the ambient sounds. Our waiter was lovely, attentive while not intrusive, i.e., wonderful. I think drinks are overpriced, pizza was very good, not superb....our experience was lovely, overall and I have been there before, will certainly return!

Ribalta is an OK spot. The service was very good and the atmosphere is pleasant. I just was not wild about the pizza. The crust was not at all firm and crisp. The flavors were ok, but nothing to get excited about. I feel there are better brick and coal oven pizza spots in NYC.

Very authentic and no fuss, down to earth napolitan restaurant with amazing pizzas , fast and efficient service and good wine. I have also tried the pasta which was exceptional and I really feel like I am in Naples again when I visit. Very nice staff and always give me a decent table.

My family loves coming here, it's great to find a place in Union Square that can accommodate groups of 6 or people. The pizza is fresh and delicious, and the service is always friendly and helpful.

Very authentic Neapolitan pizza, pasta, small dishes. Among the best Neapolitan-style pizza in NYC. They should lose the music, however. The room is noisy and "energetic" enough without it. The tables are very, very close. Not relaxing, but worth putting up with the din and the cramped space for the glorious food, and they have Moretti La Rossa.

Service was very good. Food was good ... but not outstanding.
Noise level hi.
Why I can’t recommend eating there ... very uncomfortable seating. Too scrunched up ... no place to put your coat or bag. My coat wound up falling out of booth and onto floor several times. I don’t get it ... why don’t restaurant designers take these practical issues into account? They didn’t even have a coat rack or coat hooks!

Food is great. The best gluten free pizza we’ve ever had. However the service was lacking and the hostess seemed completely unaware of her job to take us to our table despite the restaurant not being busy at all.
