Found this restaurant on TA, happened to be near my hotel and near Basel HBB (main station). Very professional restaurant, great menu, excellent food and fine service. Air conditioned. Very close to all station Hotels (4-5 minutes walk, not 45 Larry P!). OK for singles, couples or parties. Starters CHF 5-15, mains CHF 20-35, Very nice presentation - I wish... More

We picked this restaurant because one of our friends has some food allergies but always seems to find Italian restaurants agreeable. It's diagonally across the street from the Hilton, a 45 minute walk if you have to wait for the traffic light and trams. The waiters and other staff all appeared to be Italian, and were very professional. We had... More

Though not far from the SBB Station, this restaurant is slightly hidden in a side street. But it's defnitely worth finding it! I spent a few weeks in Basel and went there quite a few times. The service was always good, nice and friendly staff! The food was always really good quality! I can certainly recommend visiting this restaurant!

My Italian colleagues are covinced this is the best lasagna outside of Italy. Excellent antipasto bar. Right near Bahnhof SBB

Hello, Many thanks for your praise of our homemade Lasagne. I must admit I also think it is one of the best lasagne`s I have eaten! Da Roberto is a favourite location for many and this is only made possible with our team in the kitchen and in service. Many of them are Italian (including the host and Manager, Dino)... More

Business traveller dining alone, went here on advice from advice from the hotel where I stayed. The food was excellent, not the best I've had, but delicious. Staff was super friendly, very attentive above most European standards of service.

We chose Da Roberto because it was close to our hotel. The room was nice and the service friendly and efficient. The food was just OK -- more like Olive Garden quality than a good Italian restaurant. The price, $80, for two entrees and two glasses of wine seemed pretty high, but then everyplace in Basel was expensive.

The pizza and wine were great here. It is actually a more upscale restaurant and the other offerings also looked great. Staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't have a reservation for lunch but they fit us in to an already packed house. We will return.

While staying at the Hilton, we were looking for a place to eat not too far from the hotel. We came upon Da Roberto through Tripadvisor. While the entrance to the restaurant is kind of through an alley or in a mall next to a porno movie house, once you are inside the restaurant it is actually very nice. Service... More
