I had never heard of Ribalta. When I looked it up on the internet I was happy to see it is conveniently located near Union Square (12th Street at Broadway). I often meet people for dinner in Union Square so I'm happy to have another place to add to my list. Not only do I like Ribalta's location, I also liked the food, so really it was a win all around.
Amanda and I split the brussels sprouts to start. I love brussels sprouts. Especially when they are covered in bacon and cheese. I then got the gluten free vegetable pizza. It was quite large and I thought it was pretty good. Amanda had some gluten filled pasta and was happy with it. They do have a gluten free almond chocolate cake for dessert but we didn't get it. You probably should though, because, you know, dessert.
