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!

Came to dinner with my family the last week of July, and besides a great menu with things for everyone in the family (ages 8-65) they also has a very impressive gluten-free menu. I opted for the gluten free pizza and was surprised how great it was! Excellent service and excellent food! Make a reservation if you are dining with... More

We came to this restaurant because of the pizza reviews. I can't tell you about the wait staff or the food because sadly we were never spoken to or seated. There were two staff members at the hostess area. One on the phone, and the other simply standing there. She made eye contact with me several times. I'm thinking "ok...when... More

I feel bad you came to Roberto's felt ignored and left. I'm not sure what exactly happened. I can only guess from your description that the hostess thought you where part of another party. Was there lots of other people in the lobby waiting to be seated? Sounds like the hostess's where looking at the reservation screen for seatme. I... More
