Birthday meal mid storm Desmond

This review took a lot of deliberating as I had many factors to consider. For the service I would grade it at 5 but for food a 3 hence the overall 4 in order to fairly reflect our experience. I rang to book a week in advance and due to staffing problems the owner was reluctant to take a booking... read more

Roberto's enjoys a great central location in Bowness-On-Windermere. It offers a typical Italian menu and a specials board. I was pleased to find bottled ales and enjoyed a couple of pints of Boon Doggle. The staff are absolutely lovely and service is professional and friendly. I enjoyed my meatballs and seafood pizza without being blown away. I thought our bill... More

Second time here and food and service just as good. Again I witnessed what were obviously regular customers enjoying their food. Always a good sign I think.

Luckily we visited the restaurant the day before our booking, to check the time for the following day, only to be told we weren't down. I'd booked a week or so in advance. The menu is quite limited (4 pasta dishes, maybe 10 varieties of pizza) with a specials board which, depending on where you're sat, is quite awkward to... More

Ate here on Saturday night, lovely place. The food was wonderful. I had the sea bass and my husband the belly pork, both perfectly cooked and really tasty. Service was well times, not too fast or too slow. Good value too.

If you are visiting the lakes this should be on one of your restaurants that you should try. The food is amazing and the preparation to get it to this standard must take some work. There is always a good wine to accompany the meal and the cheese board for desert it's a port is exceptional

Superb Night, we shared a couple of starters between us and then all devoured beef fillet and washed it all down with a couple of bottles of wine. Great atmosphere super service as always hence why we keep coming back. Love this place.
