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

Food was excellent and it was very relaxing. We had a window seat and we were not rushed. I would go back

Great service, not rushed. I had chicken saltimboca. Delucious. Cesar salad with honey mustard dressing was excellent. Had chocolate mouse with brownie for dessert, delicious also. Pastry chef is wonderful. All desserts looked delicious. Would go back. Great find in quiet bristol, ri.

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.

My wife and I went to Roberto's without reservations and were seated in a back room next to a table of ten, the only table available. The group got noisy on occasion as may be expected but it appeared that the rest of the restaurant was more quiet than most restaurants. The menu has a large number of pastas and... More

Me and my family came from New York for my wedding. There were not to many places that would accept a 13 family dinner without making it a party or that would even accept us. I am not from the area and come from an Italian family, so it was risky taking 12 Italian family members to a Italian restaurant... More
