Nice menu. Uncomfortable seats. Good service. Pretty good food.

I haven't been there for a year, but as soon as I sat down I remembered what I didn't like. Very uncomfortable seats. So much so, I couldn't wait to finish dinner and leave. The menu is very nice. I had the tiny hanger steak frites appetizer. Expecting French potatoes, I was surprised to receive... read more

The food is excellent with all sorts of different options for both appetizers and entrees with a wine list that compliments them all. Try the crab cakes and the Chicken Stella. The atmosphere is very nice and is comfortable for both a casual date or a more formal night out. Great function room for birthdays, showers or other events too.... More

In a family mini-reunion I chose this restaurant because long ago when it was at a smaller location, we loved it. How I regret this. We were served excellent fare,but after entree's all went downhill. Service was terrible and the waits inexcusable. When a member of our party ( 5 of us were senior citizens) courteously complained (shortening the story)... More

I have been a regular at Roberto's for years. The shrimp scampi is to die for... I NEVER write reviews, but in this case i think it's only fair. I was on a date last Friday night at the bar, when a man approached the demanding 10% off of his bill ( he was complaining of slow service when the... More

My friend from Maine picked this restaurant to have a celebration dinner at for her son's graduation from Brown. She decided on this one from the reviews on this site. Nice work everyone! The restaurant is in a very nice location of Bristol with a good first impression. If the weather were warmer, there is a small amount of outdoor... More

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.
