Very quaint. The food is upscale with a nice presentation. Service is very good. Make sure you call for dinner reservations.

Everyone has off nights including chefs. While my husband's meal was wonderful, mine was so mediocre that I barely ate it. As we paid the check I told the waitress how wonderful the service was; we enjoyed the great appetizer but that my meal was less than tasty. She went to the kitchen, came back and said the chef hopes... More

Had a fantastic dinner here. Ate at the bar the and the bartender/GM Neeley was excellent! I started with the roasted mushroom bisque which was superb. They serve an exceptional Italian bread with a dipping sauce and Parmesan cheese to start. The other half had a small chicken Caesar salad with a side of the house special honey mustard dressing....

This is our favorite Bristol restaurant just because the menu has so many options and the food is so consistently good- we've never been disappointed or bored. The owner, Robert, is always there- that alone has to tell you something! We are seasonal residents and can't wait to get to Roberto's every time we arrive. Wonderful menu, with classic recipes...

We all enjoyed our meals and were able to walk to the 4th of July fireworks from the restaurant. This location is also not far from the waking path along the harbor. The quality of food is great, buth the dining room can get a bit crowded.

My wife and I have been to Roberto's many times - when it was a much smaller location on Hope Street to its new one in larger space and across the road. The restaurant is really a series of rooms - all open to each other and outside cafe seating. The spaces inside are dark and comfortable and removed enough... More

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a very special and pleasant evening at Roberto’s yesterday. I am rarely impressed sufficiently by a dining experience to take the time to post a review. But after our experience last evening, I feel compelled to do so. Walking from Bristol’s idyllic waterfront and along historic Hope Street to Roberto’s door was almost an aperitif.... More

Food is excellent as is service. Nice drink selection as well. We went earlie on a Friday night so didn't have to wait for meals to,be served. Scallop appetizer is good size and scrumptious. Pasta sauce is like my grandmother made. Definitely a return trip in my future.

Good food, relaxing atmosphere, medium noise level, on my list of good casual meals out. When you really don't want to cook and you want Italian, but don't want to spend a bundle, this is the place. (We are locals.)
