"We love the relaxed feeling and authenticity of Ribalta. We definitely will be returning again. All the food is delicious our favorite is The Spicy Salami Pizza with the spicy oil, it is amazing. Service is always well-timed and friendly at the tables. This time we sat at the Bar And had great service as well. Vincenzo and Victorio were both professional, attentive and friendly.

To be fair, the building was undergoing long term renovation and the entire front entrance of the restaurant was walled off. That being said, given all of the options elsewhere, it is hard to justify dealing with the current state of the restaurant. I hope the construction ends quickly for their sake. We were one or two parties in the restaurant during lunch time.

Tucked away, easy to miss this little restaurant is fabulous, the ambience is very New York meets Italy. It’s buzzing and quick paced. The pizza is fantastic! Really fantastic! Service is great and wine is good too.

We had a large group (7) who met up at Ribalto for dinner before a concert. Service was very pleasant and helpful, the food came promptly and was very tasty. We all had pizza - they have a list of both red and white pizzas; we tried both and were very happy. I particularly enjoyed the quattro formaggi (white). The noise level grew during the time we were there - it is a very energetic place, but we were still able to hear each other talk. I wouldn't recommend it for a quiet intimate dinner. One other thing, the building housing the restaurant is under construction, so at the moment there are no external windows in the restaurant and you enter through a rather empty corridor. This was fine though, it didn't really impact our experience.

Everything that had to do with food about this place was excellent. We had the seafood salad and spinach salad, and a pizza. All excellent, and the service was superb. I gave it less that all '5's because there is construction underway in its building, and it's a bit of a distraction, so that hurt the overall score. But, that will pass, and I expect the food will remain excellent.

We had two excellent pizzas, one with zucchini and mint that was unusual and tasty. The waitress talked us into ordering two large square pizzas but we really only needed one square and one smaller round for the 6 of us. We also ordered the white wine special which was just $40 for a bottle. All around a good deal for good food and a fun vibe. Be sure to make a resi on the weekends!

Had a reservation and ended up waiting 10 minutes for a server to acknowledge us. Once we did get a table the waiter was very kind and prompt, although they ended up charging 5$ for sparkling water without letting us know. Still, the ambience was stunning, vibrant and very lively. Most importantly the pizza was immaculate and easily one of the best I ever had. The plain Margherita is fantastic and it's on my list every time I'm in the area.

We really enjoyed the food that was tasty, great quality and satisfying. So pleased with the service from the hostess, waitress and others around. We were delighted with the efficiency, professionalism and comfortable approach of the hostess and waitress. The only regret was that we wished the establishment offered choice of more affordable wines. Overall we would go back for sure.

Ribalta was exactly what we were looking for...authentic and delicious pizza, lovely glass of Montepulciano, quiet enough for conversation, relaxed atmosphere and good value. My Italian born husband is very picky, so when he says, “Buono,” I know we’ve picked a winner!

Pizza buonissima, locale carino... peccato per le cameriere troppo opprimenti. Mi sono dispiaciuta nello scoprire che tutti i tavoli (di persone del posto )avessero l acqua del rubinetto ( gratuita) mentre noi turisti alla richiesta di acqua del rubinetto abbiamo avuto una bottiglia al prezzo di 5 $... l ho trovato molto scorretto..

The food has gone downhill. This is supposed to be authentic Napoletana pizza and it was way too soggy and the taste was lacking. Plus fruit flies we’re flying all over the food while eating it. This used to be one of our favorite places to dine when in Union Station. No more! Won’t go again!!

I traveled to Naples Italy this past September and had the best pizza of my life. I’ve been on the search ever since for something in New York that can compare. The pizza at Ribalta is by far the closest that I’ve been able to find. You will not be disappointed. The ingredients are very fresh and the service is great. Very happy with my overall experience dining at Ribalta!

Even though the lobby is under construction, once you’re inside it’s great! We had a reservation and only waited a few minutes which is super quick in the city. calzone pizza was THE BEST and I can’t stop thinking about it!

We had a reservation for 8:30. They did not seat us until 9:15 and gave no apologies for this mistake. Other tables were given free drinks for the wait but I guess we were not important enough. Also food came fast which is fine but drinks took forever and ideally drinks come before food. This restaurant is under construction so the ambience is not great- while we waited 30+ minutes we were basically in an office building lobby. Would recommend taking less reservations or having some better customer service.

We love and return to Ribalta as a favorite spot for a casual dinner out. This is the second time, though, that I get stuck next to the cubby with the dirty, clanging dishes station. And, this even though we had reservations. I’ll definitely make a note to request avoiding that table in the future. Very irritating.

Due to construction, you need to pay attention to the signs to find this place. We were seated at our reservation time without issue, and a reservation was definitely needed when we went. I felt the service was a bit inattentive. The noise level was high, but we were still able to hear each other at our table. The food was delicious and reminded me of meals that I recently had in Italy. My Italian father-in-law also felt that the food was authentic and delicious. We will definitely return for the food.
