service was okay but the food was only average. Staff assumed we were tourists but have been in the restaurant many times. Often run out of items in the early evening.

We arrived at Roberto's based on recommendations from a patron at a restaurant from our first night as well as the resort staff. The menu had lots of options and guarantees that everyone should be able to find something to satisfy their hunger. We were all satisfied as our group covered the menu from steak to lasagna to spaghetti and... More

Good place for Italian style food. The spaghetti was really good and the meatball was big. My wife and I both had to take left overs home with us. Service was good. Nice place to eat at.

Maybe we were just growing tired of the typical beach fare, but we enjoyed our experience at Roberto's immensely. My husband had a Thai salmon dish that he raved about and I happily enjoyed gluten-free chicken Alfredo. (This restaurant has many GF options!) The waiter was busy, but he was still very attentive. We would return to Roberto's again and... More

As many times as I have been to Roberto's (and that is frequently as we are locals), I keep waiting for it to strike me as wonderful. And it always stops short of that. The food is consistently good but not great. The service is always good, but not great. I enjoy Roberto's mostly because of its convenience and the... More

We were following recommendations. Great anticipation. I ordered eggplant parmesan which was my favorite meal. I don't know if I will ever be able to eat it again. very little cheese, loaded with breading and oil. flavor was oil. I could barely stomach 1/3 of the portion. I had indigestion soon after the meal. Trouble getting to sleep. Intestinal distress... More

Local residents who are frustrated by restaurants that struggle to provide great service, we went to Robertos twice. Both visits were marked by great tasting food and truly outstanding service. The meatball appetizer with fried banana peppers is one of the best I have had. My wife and I really enjoyed our entrees and my wife says the lasagna (made... More

Been eating at Roberto's for over 16 years! Chef Dave and his crew are awesome. Appetizers are great and the dinner is even better. After you finish dinner - you can head over to the bar and grab a couple after dinner cocktails and catch up with the locals!

Nice little place for atmosphere. Food was less than average. Thin spaghetti was out of a box. Sauce was probably out of a jar. Meatball was large but not overly tender or flavorful . Best thing we had was the Garlic bread but they don't give you any bread extra . We got the Italian Feast and it had one... More

We have been wanting to try this place for a couple of years now, but we have little ones and weren't sure if it was family friendly....it is! Wonderful food, big portions, average prices, and wonderful service! We will be back again next year!
