The food is always fresh and the wait staff always friendly and helpful. I enjoyed a fresh cut of Mahi, another guest had a broiled seafood combination while 2 of the men had the veal parmesan and loved it! This was their first time and my 7th. Roberto's is not in Ship Bottom but Beach Haven Terrace- BYOB keeps the... More

The Linguini Marechiato was absolutely outstanding with all flavors blending perfectly in probably the best Marinara I've had in a long time. The Veal Scarpariello was a pleasure for the palate as well. It's an upscale, quiet fine Italian seafood establishment that is family run and very reasonably priced for the dining experience delivered. Remember to BYOB and not your... More

Given all the great counter fish in the area, I see no reason to do anything 'fancy' like this restaurant. Service was friendly and quick, but both my husband and I thought our meals were so-so. Stick to the simple places and you'll eat much better.

Summer dining on Long Beach Island can be an expensive proposition, but Roberto's Dolce Vita offers good food at reasonable prices. It's BYOB, so that holds the cost down, too. The dining areas are a good size and well lit. The servers are prompt and courteous. On our visit last night I had the pork tenderloin special and I was... More

They had one table "available" but were waiting for a party to call back to confirm. Hostess then called that party who still had not made a decision and said they'd call back. Hostess then said we had to wait... More
