Visited on 8th April had a lovely meal, the meat balls as a starter were the best I have tasted in a long time. Both of us had a pizza as a main, very tasty nice thin base with loads of toppings. The service was first class.

visited on the 23-02-91 - I couldn't fault the food, King prawns to start followed by Medallions of beef cooker m/r. Will definitely come again, I have already recommended it to a handful of friends who have never been.

After reading all the good comments we were really looking forward to our visit. Unfortunately is was nothing more than average. Never seen such a small menu in any Itatalian. The guy who served us lacked any kind of personality, almost felt like we weren't welcome. Food was ok but wouldn't return again, it costs nothing for a smile!

We were a bit wary after reading some of the reviews and due to the lack of website, but Roberto's surpassed all our expectations. We started with a delicious garlic bread and succulent prawns and then had the very best lamb shank I have ever tasted and a tip top seafood linguini.

We arrived around six so it was empty when we arrived. However it did pick up, lovely atmosphere, great food, happy and attentive server and the chef also came out to speak to myself and my parter as he asked for an alternate sauce and he was happy and willing to make an exchange as if it wasn't a problem...
