Not super impressed with the pizza. It has a very thin crust in the middle and a little soggy and undercooked. There isn’t a lot of sauce on it either. Also, the waiter didn’t make very many appearances. I ordered wine and it took over 15 min each time to get each glass. My friend was finished with her dinner by the time the second glass of wine came so we were ready to pay the bill and didn’t really want to the wine. Timing is everything. The waitress was nice altho she Hesitated a little to talk about the restaurant when we asked since we had never been there before. The place is busy so obviously it has a following. In all likelihood I won’t be one of them

We sat outside and found it was pretty cramped and dark. The food was good but the menu was a bit confusing. I would come back here again but likely ask more questions and sit inside.

Great Pizza and in general the quality of food is good and the recipes are really Italian. The outdoor dining experience is not at the level of the indoor.

At first they couldn’t find our reservation, which was a bit unexpected. But then it appeared and we were seated at a nice table in the window. The food was very good, as was the wine. We liked the relaxed ambiance and the light-filled space. Prices are reasonable for the quality. This is a solid choice in the Village and we would definitely come back to try more yummy pizza.

Food wonderful, service wonderful , clientele- not so great, a bunch of them stared at my 18 year old daughter and her cousins as they dined. Made them feel like they didn’t belong. But server and the other people that worked there were lovely.

This is one of my favorite places for gluten free pizza!! I love to bring friends here because there are so many options for all dietary restrictions, but the food is so good that you’ll love it even if you aren’t getting any substitutions!

We were pleasantly surprised with our random selection of Ribalta. The food was amazing - Brussel sprouts, pesto gnocchi and calzone pizza. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We will definitely return.

The restaurant was packed, definetely didn't seem like there was a pandemic going on. Given that, it seemed like the staff was swamped, but service was terrible. Took 20 minutes to get tonic water delivered to table after they didn't give us any in our G&T. Then it came out and was seltzer with lime, not tonic.

Excellent Italian food. My husband had a pizza and I had their gluten free pizza. It was one of the best GF pizzas I’ve ever had! The service was great too. We would definitely go back when we’re in the city.

We have been to Ribalta many times before and have loved the food. Unfortunately, this visit was a terrible experience.

We were seated promptly, but after ordering almost immediately after sitting down, our food took over 2 hours to be delivered. We only ordered two pizzas, which should be a relatively quick execution and service. However, every time we asked over the course of our 2 hour wait, we were told they were coming. After sitting outside in the cold (no heaters or warmers), we decided we could not wait any longer and left the restaurant. As we were leaving, they finally brought out our pizzas, which we took to go as we could not sit outside any longer. The other tables around us also faced similar issues and wait times.

The manager did comp our meal, but the lack of service and honesty throughout our experience was very disappointing. Despite our complaints and the lack of clarity, they never apologized or showed any sort of sympathy for the situation and how poorly they managed expectations and the guest experience.

Despite the food being good and this being one of our favorite spots over recent months, it is hard to imagine us going back any time soon.

Ribalta is amazing! The food is top notch authentic Italian, the ambience is elegant and warm, and the staff are kind and diligent - all making for a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience! I can not recommend this restaurant more highly. If you are craving a casual yet sophisticated, delicious and homey Italian experience, look no further than Ribalta!

One of the handful of places in town where you can get real Neapolitan-style pizza -- thin crust, puffed up cornicone all around, barely done at the center. The restaurant is lively, the staff is great, the owners are glad to see you, what more can you ask for?

Great spot. Just need to work out the kinks aa restaurants reopen. The ragu is AMAZING, but putting cold Ricotta on the dish ruins the temperature. Should be room temp not straight from the fridge! everything else waa great!
