This place is good if you are looking for a more traditional Italian restaurant. It does not have the island feel of so many other restaurants around. The food is good, but kind of heavy after a day of swimming and paddleboarding and sunbathing.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, we were a group of 10. Being in the off-season we were seated immediately. Is is located on the mainland between OIB and Sunset, just a mile or two from the bridge. Our server Clint was very polite and friendly, and overall very efficient. The food was good - no complaints.

I love this place. Significant other and I both agree that their Lasagna is hands down the best we've ever had! The sauce with it's unique touch of hot pepper spiciness, the taste of fresh garlic...I mean you just can't stop eating the stuff.

Thank you so much for the Fabulous review. I'm glad I got to check on you and you enjoy our homemade lasagna. Yes we put a dash of red pepper in when we sautéed the ground angus chuck to give a nice contrast to the all the cheese in the lasagna. Hope to see you again soon. Happy New Year... More

The restaurant had just reopened after the Christmas holiday so they may not have had their "A" game in place. Also, they did not have enough staff in place handle the apparently unexpected crowd, the restaurant was about 3/4 capacity. That being said, my companions enjoyed their pizza, piping hot, nice crust and flavorful. There is a wide variety of... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes it was our first night back after our Christmas Holiday.

This is the second time we have eaten at Robertos. The food and service is very good. The bar area is very nice and inviting. We have tried the pizza, pasta, lasagne and bang bang shrimp. Everything was good.

We have been visiting Roberto's for nearly fifteen years and watched them grow from a take-out to a full restaurant. The owner Dave is a hard-working chef and a terrific guy.

We visit OIB for a couple of weeks every fall and eat at Roberto's at least once a week each time. Highly recommend the mussels -- your choice of marinara or garlic-olive oil sauces.
