I usually don’t write reviews but just want to comment on the extraordinarily pleasant and helpful the staff is at this restaurant. It’s a treat to feel taken care of in this way and I wanted to express my gratitude.

We were celebrating a birthday and you were nice enough to set up a table in a fairly private area of the restaurant. It was perfect and so was the food, ambience, staff and service. We will definitely be returning

Delicious napoletana-style pizza! Even the gluten-free pizza was delectable. In fact, it was hard to believe it was gluten-free. Very tender and flavorful. Wish they offered smaller size pizzas since we couldn't finish it all, but worth every bite!

The food is awesome, I recommend the calamari and shrimp appetizer and the truffle gelato dessert! Must have, they’re ridiculously delicious!
There was a soccer match on TV that day, some people were shouting out loud when they were watching the match. Other than that, it was a pretty great experience!

Best gluten free pizza I have ever eaten. Service was excellent until it got rather crowded and our server was definitely overworked at the end.

Fantastic, simple food made sublime by high quality ingredients. Very friendly, genuine service. Wish it wasn't so loud - appreciate the laid back vibe for what it is, but it would be nice to be able to hear a bit more - however, could carry on a conversation well enough.

Wow. Shocked at how bad this place was. First, the place had no charm. The acoustics are unspeakable. Worse than a train station. Impossible to hear the person next to you, forget about those across the table. The servers can't hear either. Loud bad music blasting to top off the already noisy space. The servers, although quite nice, were incompetent, and overwhelmed. Took forever to take our order. Then, Everyone's food came at different times. The 2 glasses of wine ordered didn't come till half way through the meal (of the half of table that got served first). This was just a table of 5, not like a banquet. Then the food- ugh. What a pathetic mess. Embarrassingly bad in fact. Can't remember a NY meal this bad
Usually don't try places like this, but because our friends were visiting from out of town and they have a 10 year old, thought it might work. Nope. If you are a New Yorker, you probably know better than to try this place, but in case you're curious, avoid like plague. Every dish was horrid. Oh- and just under 200 bucks. What!!

Looking for a new restaurant, my friend recommended Ribalta, she loves the crust. Celebrating my sons birthday whose a HUGE pizza lover. After viewing the menu he noticed French fries as an add on to the pie. Hooked, he never wants to eat a pizza without French fries. Can’t wait to return so he can try the red pie with French fries. Great service. Bon appetite

The Best Neapolitan Pizza in NYC. I have never been disappointed at Ribalta.
I have been here at least 3 dozen times. Martina and Melina, our waitresses, made us feel like we were in Napoli. The pizza is buonissimo. Their Italian is authentic. I cannot wait for my next dinner here.

Food and service were both fine--the noise level makes it difficult to have a relaxing, leisurely meal. our Pizza making classes are a plus! But when exactly are they?

Very very loud environment. Why the walls are subway tile ceramic instead of sound absorbing material us beyond me.
Appetizers are very good. Pizza is not at the level of appetizers
Very attentive and unrushed service
Good value for NYC

We went late after a concert. Food was great and server was very nice but food took forever to come out. I love music but the volume was deafening. Couldn’t even talk to my date. Tables were so close together my date kept getting bumped in the back by service staff. We were so close to the couple next to us, I could have sat on their laps. Not sure if I will return which is a shame because the food is really good, it’s just so damn loud.
