We come to Ribalta pretty much every other month for a large group dinner. The staff is always helpful, warm, and accommodating, and always go above and beyond with us. Great food and drinks, great value, and a perfect regular go-to.
Best pizza outside of Italy! Owner is from Naples, try it!
While the food and service were satisfactory - I would not recommend bringing smaller children here as the menu does not reflect any children options, not even child sized portion salads. Disappointing because it was described as “good for kids”.
Meatball app was decent. Pizza was soggy. Would not recommend for pizza.
I’m Italian and I MUST say I’ve eaten one of the best pizza ever. My girlfriend ordered a pasta and also that one was delicious. I like so much the fact that the restaurant is offering REAL TYPICAL ITALIAN SPECIALITIES.
The ambience and the staff was very nice. Full of Italian waiters, I felt like at home in Italy!
Suggested for real Italian food! :)
Servers should not clear the table before all guests are finished eating.
Thank you for making our family celebration special! Having the semi-private space in the back was an unexpected surprise to find in NYC.
Booked this for an anniversary and was unfortunate to get put on a table next to the serving station. It was incredibly loud and spent the night hearing the servers complain about tables across the restaurant, being bumped and knocked by servers, and trying to hear over the noise of dishes. Waiters took our cocktail glasses and didnt offer for refill, and then pushed us out with the bill. Assume our anniversary note was missed, and was really disappointed overall. A big shame as the food was actually incredible!
Excellent pizza--that's what you are here for. Other offerings (such as salads) seem ordinary, but one look at the pizza over in the back of the restaurant and you will know how Ribalta creates fantastic crust. I prefer the pizzas that include tomato sauce rather than the "white" ones. Noise level is very high.
Great food great service
The food was great but they were missing many items from the menu and one of the ovens was broken.
Hands-down, the best spaghetti pomodoro I had ever had. The tomatoes are flown in from Mt. Vesuvias in Italy and are the most delicious tomatoes you will ever eat. The pizza is outstanding as well. I would like to say that the place is a good value but keep in mind you have to pay more for quality ingredients. Well worth the price. Outstanding food, service and quality. Highly recommended. Great for families too.
The best and true Napolitan pizza (and appetizers and primi if you would rather), in a comfortable and very gioviale atmosphere! If you want a true Italian experience, go to Ribalta when Italian teams are playing football! This is a wonderful place in all aspects.
It was very loud but the overall atmosphere was fun and energetic. The portions were rather small for the price. The service was excellent.
Food was tasty but the amibiance was horrible. One of the servers must have been a big Gloria Gaynor fan bc I will Survive was turned up then down then up then even higher over the course of the song. Our server was kind but pushy and did not allow us time to review the full menu before coming back to the table on three separate occasions. While I understand that table turnover is valuable, I would have appreciated a few more minutes and space to talk over food options with my date.
Not the best pizza I've had, but a very comfortable place to spend an afternoon talking to friends and the food is pretty good.
The pizza was a little soggy, too much topping I think and not enough heat in the oven
Very slow service, felt like the waiter was ignoring us most of the time. The food itself was very good, we really enjoyed the meatballs and Brussels sprouts.
A great Pizza Napoletana! An the appetizers were great too. My new fav pizzeria in Manhattan.
