“Sister Restaurant next door same family Same High Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Have been to this restaurant many times both evening and lunchtime. This time it was for lunch and as usual as soon as you walk in your made welcome and the Italian atmosphere appears even though your in Ireland. Although all the staff are tip top at their job they give you that relaxed feeling. I had a pizza and my wife had a Tagliatelle dish both of which were of high quality. Coffee, wine and a Tiramisu (home made on the premises) were also consumed and enjoyed. I have no hesitation of recommending this restaurant to everyone that likes Italian food.This lunch came to under 50 Euro's ( for everything)
Be warned that it does get very busy in the evenings and perhaps pre booking is worth the phone call.

“Rude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went for a meal with my daughter today. The receptionist was so rude to us.
Treated us very badly and upset my daighter. Rest of the staff were OK. I would recommend that this person should not be at front of house.

Never again!

“Best Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Run by a Sicilian family, excellent with a huge menu, all of it good. Worth the detour to Salthill, great wines as well.

“quality of food disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

We've been eating in Da Robertas for many years now and used to be big fans of the restaurant but in recent visits we have been really disappointed with the quality of the food. The chicken pasta dish we got yesterday was tasteless, the chicken appeared to be reheated and the tomato sauce very bland. The desserts were full of cream and not much else.
It is the second time we have been disappointed in recent months and unfortunately we will not be returning anytime soon.
