Went to Roberto's last weekend. Has been our favorite since my daughter went to Fordham University 10 years ago. Having grown up in the Bronx , we are very familiar with what I call "red gravy" Italian food. Roberto's has a more developed, regional character. Specials are dependent on seasonal food availability. My daughter remarked "this is the best food... More

Four of us enjoyed a lovely and delicious dinner at Roberto’s. For antipasti we enjoyed the grilled calamari and shrimp and baked eggplant and zucchini. For dinner I had the special veal Ossobuco, other at the table also had the specials – a highly recommended course of action for anyone visiting. We managed to save room for dessert and drinks...

Quality and presentation of the food is very good. Service is professional and very accommodating. With all the restaurants in this area , I prefer this one. I would like to see prices of specials listed on the white board, and I list of the house wines with names and prices. I have eaten in Zero Otto Nove in Bronx,... More

There are many Italian restaurants in the Bronx, especially in the area of Arthur Avenue. Roberto's not only serves fresh, delicious familiar Italian food but it sprinkles its menu and specials for the day with exciting regional specialties. I treated myself to a Sicilian dish, Pasta con Sarde. Fresh sardines, wild fennel, pignola nuts, anchovies, breadcrumbs, saffron and currants over... More

We have known Roberto Paciullo for 20 years. When the restaurant was in another location in Crescent Avenue, before moving to the current location and opening the Zero Otto Nove restaurants in Bronx and Manhattan. We were back ten days ago before going to the airport to pickup a relative. We had Gamberi y Fagioli for appetizer, Fettuccine Alfredo with... More

This place is tough to get in to, only takes cash, and is expensive. That said it is totally worth the trip up to Arthur Avenue. The food is fantastic. It gets loud and the service can be hit or miss sometimes but I've eaten here many times and the food is outstanding. Everything I have ever had here was... More

We had a double birthday to celebrate with a large family group and Roberto's served superb cuisine in a great mix of family-shared platters and individual entrees. The spirited "Happy Birthday" serenade with desert was the perfect close. Excellent Italian wine list and knowledgable staff to advise on food and drink. The only downside was not being able to make... More

The pasta is fresh, delicious, and generously portioned. Everything was wonderful and the food that I took to go reheated wonderfully which speaks to its quality. While the neighborhood can make some nervous walking back to their cars at night, and they do not seem to have valet service. Having said that the food is WORTH IT and I will... More
