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.
