Absolutely delicious roasted red pepper and tomato soup started the meal. Chef was willing to make one of the appetizers into a main dish .and I loved the linguini with sauteed garlic scallops. Service was attentive and professional and prices were very fair.

I have been coming to Roberto's restaurant for over 10 years and the food is always outstanding and the service is impeccable. This is one the best traditional italian restaurants in Rhode Island.

Not one of our favorite places in Bristol. The food is OK, not great. Service is good, but value is not there. Try Persimmon's if you want a great meal at the same price.

I have been to this restaurant on several occasions. Tonight was really awful service and attitude with our waitress and hostess. Both acted like we were annoying them throughout the night, service was awful. Waitress asked if we wanted water and returned 20 minutes later. Said you have had a long enough time to look at the menu and then... More

This pleasant Italian restaurant in the center of Bristol is a fine choice for dinner. The food was very good, and our server was excellent - very attentive, pleasant, and got it all right. The only negative is that for what they serve it seemed a bit pricy - $10 salads, $25 pasta dishes.

Living in or around Bristol this was the first time I've been to Roberto's. I wanted to try it based on curiosity alone because from the looks of it I had a preconceived notion that it would be too expensive and I figured it's Bristol how good could it really be? Well, of course that's the wrong attitude especially from... More

Roberto's is an excellent Italian restaurant in East Bay an the only good Italian this side of Providence and coming in second is Pomodoro Pizzeria which is excellent as well. Roberto's has excellent food you will not be disappointed.

LOVE Roberto's! It's always consistent, good quality, & great service. Neely, the bartender, makes a wonderful vodka gimlet! Lamb bolognese is one of our favorites. Best to make reservations, they always seem busy. They make it very comfortable to sit at the bar and eat which it seems a lot of regulars enjoy.
