I have no idea what the hype is all about. This place is an absolute shrine to mediocrity. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted with absolute chaos...dozens of people with reservations milling around in a tiny space trying to figure out what was going on...and there was no one whom we could even talk to about how long...

We were doing a nostalgic tour of the Bronx so of course one of our stops was Arthur Avenue the Bronx's Little Italy. We lunched at Roberto's. It was a great choice. Although it is a large restaurant it is cozy with dark wood farmhouse tables. The food and service were both excellent. Roberto's is more upscale than most of... More

We dine out regularly at top 25% rated Trip Advisors restaurants and Roberto's is one of the best Italian restaurants I have had the pleasure of eating at. Bread with olive oil - Great, Osso bucco veal - Great, broccoli rob - Great, cannoli - Great! Roberto's hit it out of the park and over the centerfield fence! We came... More

I go to Arthur Ave a lot and enjoy eating at Mikes Deli. However if you want to go to a "tablecloth" restaurant this is the best I have been to in the area A lot pricier than others but you get what you pay for Check it out, you won't be sorry. Pretty much anything in ten menus will... More

We were a table of 6. Had a nice table in the rear of the restaurant. The online menu is different than what is available. I had the three meat special which was a HUGE portion. I swapped out the brussel sprouts for spinach which wasnt a problem.

Roberto's has been around for years. The food has been very good and consistent time over time for all our visits. I can't recommend any one dish as all are excellent. Their fish is fresh as it the grilled Calamari .We have been here for lunch and for dinner over the many years. If you can't make it to The... More

All around perfect night for a party of 7 people including kids. From the moment we walked in, the restaurant staff was welcoming. The atmosphere a slice of Italy - exposed brick walls and walnut tables a nice touch. Place was bustling at 6pm but not overly noisy - we were able to have a conversation at the table without...

We let the waiter do quite a bit of the ordering and he did an excellent job: Octopus and the sausages. I had him bring an entree that looked the best and he rolled out the Bronzino which was excellent! Will come back to Roberto's the next time I'm in the Bronx.

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at Roberto's and had a wonderful experience. Our initial greeting by the bartender Anthony (makes the best Manhattan's and recommends the tastiest beers) to the staff that waited on us for dinner, it was an amazing experience. I have never experienced such delicious authentic Italian food aside from my wife's cooking anywhere... More

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
