“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Amazing how despite all the noise surrounding the teen-infested Cinemax, Robertos tends to be peaceful.

The staff are quite helpful and honest, even lost a valuable item and they kept it for me!

The food is good, ambience is authentic and very homely and price is well within affordable. The ice cream wasnt to my taste, a bit thick!Apart from that, id totally recommend anyone to try it.

The pizzas are baked in a clay oven and are totally Italian down to the base.

“A good stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We stopped at this restaurant twice , both times coming & going from the airport .
On both occasions we had pizza ,salad & spaghetti . The food was fresh & cooked well , on the table they serve complimentary focaccia , all very good . For desert we had Roberto's ice cream (homemade) & espresso macchiato . The service was fast and as we were travelling for us it was an ideal stop .
TIP : if the owner is there do ask for the specials , we listened to his advice and had the best spaghetti !!

“Sour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011 via mobile

I found my way to Roberto's after it came highly recommended. Place was clean and quant. Greek salad was fresh and well presented. Dressing was not to my standard. A free focaccia was also good. Ordered a cappuccino, the milk was sour....on two of them. A basic but huge mistake. Pizzas, well lets say our driver took them as take aways. Tomato base was pathetic, the cheese was of poor quality and it lacked herbs. I guess Roberto was not around. On what we ate I would not recommend it.

“Compared to what Mombasa offer - This is only okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

This is okay for a quick lunch time or pre movie dinner but no more, dont even try and go during lunchtime as the flies will eat more than you do. Problem all over mombasa. Food is good not spectacular and the service is dependant on the waiter. The place needs management and consistancy. Overall not bad but also consider Bollywood bites just around the corner, and a few others
