Having tried to get in other restaurants we found Roberto's nearly empty? On arriving a quite curt waitress pointed to a table as we had not made reservations. "Take that one" At the end of our meal on not ordering any deserts, she was quick to thrust in my hand for payment and get the table free. That said, the... More

The food was of a high quality nicely presented and met all our expectations, we got a table walking off the street about 7.30 and... More

There are lots of amazing restaurants in Bowness but we wanted something not too crowded so we chose Roberto's. The homemade dips - Balsamic, Basil oil and Sweet chilli AMAZING! Everything is so fresh, service is fantastic! The carbonara is so delicious - it's one of the best I've had. That's comparing to my experience from Italy. The desserts are... More

We ate at Roberto's after failing to get a booking elsewhere so it was a last minute decision. The menu is limited but the food is of a good standard and is well presented so can recommend the restaurant from that perspective. Otherwise I'm struggling to find any other reasons to promote them as being anything but average. The chairs/tables... More

We reserved a table after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Quite a small restaurant so we thought this was necessary. Really welcoming staff, and a nice atmosphere. It did get a little hot for us inside as it was a July evening so didn't spend as much time there as we could have done. The food was even tastier... More

I first found Roberto's by accident. My wife and I had walked from Hawkshead back to Bowness, got soaked by an unexpected downpour on the way (my waterproof coat turned out not to be!) and on the way back to our cottage we decided just to stay in and get takeway pizza from the restaurant at the end of the...

Amazing food - enough choice for everybody! - I particularly recommend the tapas dishes and especially their homemade balsamic! The decor is delightful and the service was second to none! A woman who I assumed to be the owner was attentive throughout, very friendly and continuously made humorous conversation (perfect if with family) to everybody in there and it was... More

We visited Roberto's for the first time in October 2010 and were so impressed we went back on our second night in Bowness during that visit. We made a special side tour in our trip around Scotland and the UK to visit them again tonight. We were not disappointed the food was fabulous and the service wonderful. Wish they were... More
