Great restaurant-low lighting, clean, COVID safe. Been here 3x this past year. Tonight my shrimp on the scampi entree were huge, but burnt. I did not complain, but every bite tasted burned. They were broiled too long. The tails were charred black. The cream sauce...on the side of bow tie pasta was wonderful. The smaller shrimp and lobster in the rigatoni ala vodka dish were decadent. Service was prompt and polite.More

Don’t let the storefront fool you. Roberto’s has wonderful food, a great menu and terrific service. My wife and I are frequent diners, we have a favorite table and always request Maggie as our server. She is a wealth of knowledge about everything on menu...or specials, has a great personality and gives us wonderful service.More

I had the chicken parm and it was supurb. The chicken had a slight chard flavor and so did the sauce. My husband had the shrimp scampi. It too was supurb. The waiter was fast and friendly. We want to go back

I have reviewed Roberto's before but this is the first time back since the pandemic began and I was eager to see if the quality of food and service was maintained. I was not disappointed. Everything was great. Let's start at the entrance where Annette,...Roberto's wife greets you. She is so sweet and pleasant that interacting with her is a pleasure. Both she and Roberto do their best to provide the guests with the seating arrangements and atmosphere they want, and this is most welcome. While the restaurant is back to full capacity the tables remain nicely spaced. I was glad to learn that all of the staff have been vaccinated with one or two exceptions, and those individuals were wearing masks. Virus-wise my husband and I felt entirely safe there, and we are sticklers for personal safety. Moving on to the waiter, Jamie. He was magnificent. Friendly and happy to be accommodating in all respects. He helped organize the table the way like it and chilled the wine to the degree we like it. Whenever we asked for anything Jamie was "Johnny on the spot." While veal parmigiana is not on the menu, Jamie was wonderful about getting it prepared exactly the way my husband likes it. It turned out to be delicious as well well as a large portion. For my appetizer I had the eggplant parmigiana. I don't like it flooded with sauce and Jamie was spot on in getting it served the way I like it. It was absolutely great. My husband had the fried calamari and asked for it to come with a heaping dose of marinara sauce on the side--as opposed to the sauce they usually serve it with. He loved it. Crisp and not greasy, and the marinara sauce was wonderful. As I noted above, my husband loved his entree of veal parmigiana, and I had the rigatoni alla vodka which has always been my personal favorite at Roberto's. It did not disappoint. It was wonderful. It is prepared in a tomato cream sauce and it came with a generous helping of lobster and shrimp. To top the evening off my husband and I shared a tiramisu together with a glass of limoncello. The tiramisu was delicious and the limoncello was perfect. In short we had a wonderful evening and Annette, Roberto, and Jamie enhanced it to the nth degree. I highly recommend Roberto's as a restaurant to go to for fine cuisine, and the prices are appropriate for the quality and quantity of the food served and the attentiveness of the service.More

Roberto’s is an excellent dining experience. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Having the plexiglass between dining tables is a great idea. Not only does it help with the social distancing but it helps make your dining experience more intimate as it helps with...noise between tables. The food is great. My favorite is the fettuccini. The butter lettuce used in the house salad is so tender. It is a bit pricey, but we’ll worth it. Last time the family went we were there almost three hours enjoying ourselves and not once did we feel rushed. I highly recommend this place!More

This place is a gem. I came here BECAUSE of the owners response to a sketchy review. Atmosphere, price, food quality and selection as well as impeccable service are a win win win. Get here and enjoy a culinary wonderland!
