Menu has new additions and the food was great tonight...

Don't listen to any negative rap on this…Roberto's really is a pleasant food experience. Once again the bartender made us each a wonderful Tito's vodka gimlet…the authentic way, from scratch. Really good here! The arugula salad is excellent, perfectly seasoned and a great blend of ingredients. The... read more

We have enjoyed Roberto's for several years and were pleased to see them move to a larger more attractive location. Our most recent visit was a disappointment; the always well prepared food was uneven, even unedible. Service was friendly and just ok; the staff needed to be reminded to refill water glasses. Our choices were 1 good, 1 so-so, 2... More

We have dined here many times, and were excited to take friends. Last night was a disappointment. Drinks came quickly, and my Cosmo was excellent. Dinner took forever, and when it came, 3 out of 4 meals were lacking. My chicken piccata, the only dish I ever get here was sautéed chicken without a trace of lemon, there were literally... More

We had my son and daughter in law's rehearsal dinner in the private function room. It was on a Friday evening, the week before July 4th, (busy time in Bristol). Everything was perfect from beginning to end! Kelly had the room set up for our party of 36 beautifully with candles, fresh flowers in vases, soft music playing, etc. We... More

My wife and I were vacationing in the area and searched Trip Advisor for restaurant options. Based on the reviews, we decided to try Roberto's. We had a great experience and feel we made a great choice. We were greeted by Bob, the affable owner. We opted to sit outside to enjoy Bristol's charming downtown. We had excellent service from...

We have been going to Roberto's for many years and the food is always been fantastic... which is why we keep returning! We dine there at least once a week and truly enjoy the delicious food options (gluten free as well!), the laid back atmosphere and great staff. The new chef has been surprising me with incredibly delicious and creative... More

Service and food are great. The new menu is to die for. Everything is always hot and fresh. Their martinis are the best in town.

Roberto's is always consistent, from the always welcoming atmosphere, to the exceptional service and friendly staff, to the perfectly prepared culinary delights. Bob, the owner is always there to greet you and thank you at the conclusion of your evening. On another note the previous review by Sandra P is complete false and I happen to be there on with...
