Best 5 Neapolitan Pizza in Manhattan

We would like to emphasise that the 5 pizzas we have chosen are Neapolitan/Italian style.

Therefore, we are not writing in this article about New York style pizzas, which will be covered in another article.

Ribalta

Area: Union Square

Ribalta is a fantastic Italian style pizzeria just steps away from Union Square.
Easily accessible by subway or on foot, Ribalta has delicious pizzas on the menu prepared in their wood-fired oven.

There are 2 things we love the most about Ribalta, besides its great pizzas:

The first is that in addition to the pizzas you will also find on the menu excellent Italian dishes, such as pasta, appetisers, meat, fish and even delicious desserts.

The second is for all soccer lovers: although Ribalta is a restaurant and not a sports bar, inside you will find a big screen projected on the wall to watch soccer matches, both Italian and international.

Norma

Area: Midtown East

Norma comes to New York directly from Sicily. Here you can find not only excellent Italian-style pizzas, but also typical dishes of Sicilian tradition.

In fact, on the menu there are arancini (fried rice balls), various types of pasta including the “alla norma” with eggplant and many other tasty dishes.

The restaurant is located in Midtown East – Kips Bay, at the intersection of 31st Street and 3rd Avenue, about 15 minutes walk from the Empire State Building.

If you are in Midtown Manhattan then we recommend reading this article of ours:

Song e Napule

Area: West Village

At Song e Napule you can breathe the real Neapolitan air. It is a very small place in the West Village with a Neapolitan pizza cooked to perfection in a wood-fired oven.
We strongly recommend that you book in advance as seating is very limited.
If you’re in the mood for a little something before you eat your pizza, check out their appetizers too: they are so tasty!

We never know what to choose between the “Crocchè di Patate” (Hand made potato croquette, filled with smoked buffalo mozzarella cheese and pecorino cheese) or the famous Parmigiana (Eggplant parmigiana with tomato sauce, mozzarella, basil and parmigiano).

Don Antonio

Area: Times Square

If you have a hotel in Times Square or if you are passing through these parts and you want a really good and tasty pizza, we recommend you to go to Don Antonio.

The place has an American inspiration, with a large counter at the entrance, but we can promise you that the pizza, cooked in a wood-fired oven, is 100% Italian, as well as the pizza chef.

Since we believe that it is very difficult to find a good restaurant in the Times Square area, we really want to bring to your attention this place as it is, in our opinion, an excellent exception.

If you find yourself in Times Square and are in the mood for a drink and to see the city from alternative points of view, then read our article linked below:

Sottocasa

Area: Harlem

For this pizzeria, we’re moving out of Midtown Manhattan and heading north to Harlem.

Getting to the pizzeria is really easy even though it’s outside of a tourist area: just take the red subway, lines 2 or 3, from Times Square and in about 20 minutes you’ll be within walking distance of the pizzeria.

In addition to the pizza, fantastic and baked in a wood-fired oven, the thing we love most about this pizzeria is their Antipasto all’Italiana, with mixed cold cuts and cheeses and a hot focaccia baked in the oven.
