Ribalta is a big space in an area that’s definitely not short on restaurants, and yet it rarely ever has room for walk-ins. Probably because it’s a fun group dinner spot that’s convenient for everyone and not too expensive. The Neapolitan pizza is pretty good, there are a bunch of bottles of wine for around $40, and during the day, they project soccer matches on the wall.

The only thing that is keeping Rubriosa from being one of NYC’s classic Italian restaurants is time. Let’s eat vodka sauce pizza while we wait.
