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

My sister in law had her rehearsal dinner here. Took an hour for appetizers to come around. Then another hour for food. Food was very good. Tasted like freshly made pasta sauce. Another hour for dessert. Never was asked if I'd like more coffee - which I did. Located on the parade route with a short walk to the docks... More

We ended up here around 5pm on a Friday without a reservation. I think we were lucky to get a table as it filled up fast. Great food and service, nice atmosphere. Very satisfying.

Roberto's is a fantastic restaurant located in downtown Bristol. It's very 'close quarters' in their new location, but not uncomfortably so. The food is always fresh, hot and delicious. The bread salad is a must!!

Went here for New Year's Eve and were favorably impressed. They had their full menu and it was packed and the service was not impacted at all. We go here regularly during all seasons and the food, service & value are consistently good. Worth the trip if you are not a local.

We had a lovely dinner at Roberto's. The waitress even suggested a veal dish that was not on the menu. The cod was very good. Great atmosphere.
