We had dinner here with a small child and a baby. Food was nice. I had the mussels in spicy tomato sauce which were delicious and the fried calamari which were nice and tender but slightly greasy. My partner had a pizza which was ok but not special. My daughter enjoyed her spaghetti bolognese. The atmosphere is sophisticated but we... More

Really nice food with a warm and cosy atmosphere. The staff are really friendly and there was some unusual dishes on the menu. All the food had a very homemade and fresh feel. We'll be back.

Excellent atmosphere and food. We had the canalloni and belly pork and both meals were perfect. The staff are very nice and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

We were really looking forward to our night at this restaurant during our break to the lakes. However, we were not welcome in the restaurant because we had a baby with us and we were turned away by one of the male waiters! It was still early in the evening (as we avoid eating late on as we have a... More

3rd visit. Last two were excellent. This time poor. First guy front of house looks so unhappy you've even cone in... However the dutch lady waiting tables was really nice and friendly. Calamari greasy and tough Tapas was bland. Pizza base or whole pizza bought in. So save yourself the trouble and just go to tesco next door.

I wouldn't argue over the bill with this waitress!! ..... Not that you need to, we're used to paying London prices & the quality was very very good. We had 'Belly of pork, Sea Bream, burger & spag bol', all excellent. Now we're not wine 'snobs' but 'lost full marks' as the the bottle arrived opened & glasses filled before... More

I didn't book a table at Roberto's when my partner and I visited Windermere, however when our plans for a particular day were cancelled we had to find somewhere for dinner. Roberto's was one of the recommended places to eat in the Information booklet at our BnB, and I was so pleased it was because it was one of our... More
