Waited 60 minutes for a pizza that never arrived. This place is horribly managed and they don’t seem to care. We left. Went to Simo pizza. Fast and better. Don’t bother.

Delicious pizza. We had both the regular and gluten-free dough, and both are world-class. Only minor complaint would be that the pizzas are a little awkward because cut into 1/4s, not 1/8s, and the ingredients weren't really stuck into the cheese, especially on the white pizza. Broccoli rabe also wasn't cut finely, so difficult to bite. Still all tasty, but make a note if you're on a first date and don't want to look like a wild animal. Would definitely go back.

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.

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
