This restaurant has fame and, based on that, they charge too much for their plates. I was not at all overwhelmed by the dishes, except for their desserts. The prices do not match the quality of the food. Our group ordered 2 veal dishes, pasta, lamb, calamari, burrata and salad. The desserts were very good. We ordered tiramisu, a cannoli... More

Been here 20 times. Always was the "default" place to go after a Yankee game or anytime we got to the Bronx. The last three times we were disappointed. Food was still good, but not what it was and the service was a bit more brusk then I would have liked. Overall, you will get a fine meal, but there... More

Roberto's is one of the best restaurants in New York City. Forget about "Little Italy" in Manhattan - Roberto's and Arthur Avenue are the closest you'll get to real Italian food outside of Italy. I am extremely picky about eating Italian food in NYC, mainly because I travel to Italy often and know the difference, but Roberto's is excellent and... More

What a simply amazing dining experience from the moment we sat down until we walked out the door almost 3 hours later. Our service was as superb as each of the appetizer, pasta, entree & dessert courses. It was well worth our 2.5 Hour drive to celebrate a family birthday here! We'll certainly return!

We were here in March and had dinner with 2 other couples. The atmosphere is very elegant but comfortable- like dinner in your grandmother's good dining room. The service was only surpassed by the food- excellent. We all had different items- chicken parm, eggplant & veal- & everything was fabulous. Definitely a go-back to place!

Excellent authentic Italian fare in a neat part of the Bronx. Great market area in this other Little Italy. $$$ with very big portions

i went here w my wife and another couple....Wow!! This is the way you are supposed to do italian...everything was great....the pasta (the truffle pasta is insane), the eggplant and cheese appetizer and really everything.....It is worth the trip....there is nothing like this in westport, ct......it is comparable to il mulino (my favorite) but at 1/2 the price

You can never go wrong with anything Roberto cooks for you! I love there is no menu so he tells you what he has prepared and you can choose dishes you never had before which is half the fun! The staff is impeccable and we love talking with Roberto when he does his table rounds! We have been going to... More

A group of 8 of us went for dinner on a Thursday evening. The place was packed and super loud. We could barely hear each other across the table. We ordered "family-style" appetizers which were waiter served. Barely got a forkful of 3 different items. Although most of our table ordered specials, I ordered the rabbit off the regular menu....

Everything about my recent lunch at Roberto's was great. The service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Everything my family ordered was fantastic. The octopus and clam tubetini entree was one of the best seafood pasta dishes I've ever had.
