A stable in downtown Bristol

One important thing about this restaurant is that it predictably and consistently good. One section of the menu allows you to select from various styles of Italian cuisine, while another has house specialties. Given the reasonable prices and friendly service this place is definitely worth a try.

As always the food and atmosphere at Roberto's were great for a special birthday dinner. Whether you try an old favorite off the menu or something new, you won't be disappointed. Hollie took great care of us and Neeley made sur everything went off without a hitch as usual. We went on Jazz night which was great, some nice music... More

Luckily we were able to get a high top table by the door on short notice tonight. Calamari appetizer was much enjoyed. Lasagna, chicken parmigiano and chicken marsala were all winners as well.

Restaurant is excellent and the service was great. This was the first time i had the chicken parm and i wasnt crazy about the meal. It was not the best meal and in 15 years we have been dining at Roberto's this was the first time. Just overcooked chicken on top of pasta that wasnt drained too well. My fault... More

Great wine selection and Italian recipes from the old world. Excellent service with prompt attention for special requests. Pasta dishes like bolognese and seafood in cream sauce over linguine are especially fond memories from our last visit.

I consider(ed) this one of Bristol's nicest restaurants, and it is still one of my wife's favorite, but our experience last week was truly disappointing. I thought something was amiss when we entered on a Friday evening (around 615) and the place was practically empty. Usually the bar is packed with a "happy hour" crowd and we have to wait... More

We went to Roberto's last night as t is one of our favorites. My husband ordered the specialty entree of Braciole. The waitress told us they have a new chef and the dish has changed a little. Understatement, it was bland and the portion so small my husband had a sandwich when we got home. My veal was also nondescript.... More
