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

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.

Great service and nice but somewhat noisy ambiance. Pizza quality is excellent but not cooked to request. Subsequently a bit soggy. A variety of different pizzas ordered all had well cooked edges but center half of pizzas too wet.

The food was great, but have to comment that there was no air conditioning inside on a 95 degree day, the waitress didn’t speak English very well and she also had no idea what was on the menu. We were a party of 13 and the waitress couldn’t understand our orders from the menu. She was very kind and seemed really confused but this was a large party and she didn’t get our order correctly and it was very very complicated. I had to find multiple other waiters to help, I was taken back into the kitchen when the food didn’t arrive and we were very confused about why she was our server when she didn’t know the menu or couldn’t understand us…. The food was great but really would’ve appreciated better service. I don’t normally write reviews but I had to say something here

nearly an hour wait for a pizza? not acceptable. never offered a drink, always had to stop someone and ask. maybe they were just having a bad night but while the food was good the overall experience was disappointing.

Only reasons this isn't 5 star is because the outdoor seating is meh and there were tons of gnats/flies. But I love Ribalta.

I should have, in hindsight, chosen to eat pizza. Most others were and they looked great. My pasta with ragu was overcooked and bland with OK red sauce. I could not get parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes so it needed the additional salt and flavor and spice. The meatballs were good along with the croquettes. My advice, stick to pizza.

We're "regulars" - my wife and I are both gluten-free and they have the absolute best gluten-free pizza. The brussel sprouts and caprese salad are outstanding.
Highly recommended.

We were very excited for our lunch reservation at Ribalta. We were disappointed when we were unable to order cocktails because “the bartender isn’t in”. The service was a bit lacking, including us waiting 20+ minutes for our server to process our payment, despite being one of maybe 3 tables in the restaurant. The Margarheta pizza was delicious, though and the restaurant itself is a very cool atmosphere. We had high hopes for such a highly rated restaurant and were overall disappointed in the experience.

Ribalta is excellent! Waitstaff is very friendly and helpful and attentive. Food is wonderful, we especially love the gnocchi al pesto, and all of their pizzas, and the Pastiera (traditional Neapolitan cheesecake) is flavored with rosewater and is incredible!

We met friends for dinner. It was our first time there. We had a great time, lots of energy and atmosphere. Too loud though due to music and singing.
