Not a big step from 4.9 to 5.0 . . .

Roberto's enjoys a high rating and it's deserved! Could it move up? I think so. The really important things - like excellent food; attentive service; understandable (pricey) prices, are already there. What more could one want? For many people this list is complete; the highest rating is... read more

Of course you want to go here for dinner after walking Arthur Ave all day. Had lunch at their sister restaurant-0-8-9 and spent the day walking around and dinner at Roberto's. Now that's a taste buds dream. Had the special which was an Ox tail rigatoni. I've tried to duplicate it now a couple of time....just can't. But I still... More

The owner was very friendly. Informed us of how their pasta is home made on the premises. Without a doubt one of the best restaurants I ever ate at. The food is superb.

I've been going to lunch here for years, and for good reason. Roberto is a master in the kitchen, the wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. The braised rabbit is spectacular. Although busy, one is never rushed, and allowed to enjoy the meal at a relaxed, casual pace. Enjoy!

What a great dinner we had yet again Go early if you don't want to wait but if you do have to wait it is worth it. Fresh appetizers. I had grilled calamari. The pasta was home made. Sauces were delicious. Just a true solid italian meal. It's not cheap but it's worth it

The room is really welcoming. Wooden tables and nice lighting. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Meals were good. My husband had the chicken with Marsala, prosciutto and mozzarella cheese. Excellent. I had the special goat cheese ravioli with a sage butter. Sauce was barely there, and it needed it for flavor. The ravioli themselves were good, but just lacked... More

This is wonderful Italian food. Old style as you'd expect but meticulously prepared. Great tastes. Impressive wine list. Open on a Monday night if you want a quieter feel. Only downside for a visitor is the 'arthur avenue' website massively underestimates the walk time from the subway. Closer to 25 than 16 mins. And not a particularly pleasant walk at... More

I've eaten here more than five times. Each time with different people. Each time we created high expectations. Each time they were met or exceeded. This is old world, no reservations, home style food where you should order the specials the waiter suggests. You will encounter a wait. You will hear the cheesy "Happy Birthday" song. It is expensive. It... More

This restaurant is located minutes away from the NY Botanical Garden (and Bronx Zoo) where we had spent the afternoon with kids and gran-kids. We were a party of six. My wife and I, we were invited by our son in law who chose to surprise us with an assortment of appetizers and entrées, which explains why I won't be... More
