Maybe my fault but I got the impression this was something to look forward to. Not really. Just a very small Italian with a very small and quite unadventurous menu with too few staff to make the experience enjoyable. The food was decent but we're talking pizza and mainstream pasta with the odd few specials. Not suitable for anything other... More

A cosy little diner serving delicious food that caters for all palettes. We had outstanding service from Linda and the food was an absolute treat.

We called to make a reservation for that day, the call was answered very abruptly by the manager. When asked if we could book before 6, we were told it was just 'pot luck' to get a table then. We persevered and made a booking for 6:15. The manager then ended the conversation by simply hanging up. Needless to say... More

What can I say? AMAZING! Wonderfully tasty food, incredibly well presented and lovely atmosphere. The waitress was very attentative and friendly, and quite informal which really suited the cosy, cheeky feel of the Restaurant. The Mussel starter was the best we have had, better then the French! The Tapas is nice too, although the main menus looked incredible when they... More

Well, I really have to say that was my happiest experience. I ordered the pork with gain XXXXXX source. The source itself looked a little bit wired but it was really really tasty, especially served with pork. And then....I found the "black pudding" as the side.....well it was great before you know the ingredients.....I can tell some because I myself... More

This was an impromptu visit with my wife & two sons. We chose Roberto's after looking at a number of other restaurants. Its in a great location, is very small and I can imagine it would be an ideal place for a romantic meal at night. The staff were very prompt and polite and it had a great atmosphere. The... More

Had a lovely meal without the kids whilst they went out with grandma and grandad for tea. I had pasta and hubby had a pizza and a bottle wine, food was lovely and great value for money would definitely visit again.

Arrived around 8pm, got offered a table and sat down. Then waited to order drinks. And waited. And waited...... Eventually left 20 minutes later without the first sign of some customer service. Might be an off day, but I'd say avoid.

After reading the reviews, decided to have dinner here and wasn't disappointed at all. The food was fantastic. Especially the bowl of mixed olives and ciabatta bread with chilli, basil and balsamic dips. The Rat- A- 2ee pizza was the best pizza I've ever had and everyone has to try the very generous portion of (of course homemade) sticky toffee... More
