“Average at best.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

I'm not sure why this place is so busy. Perhaps the location. We were a group celebrating a birthday. The service was pretty good but meals were disappointing. Not very large servings. Chicken and liver pieces were very small, way too many noodles in the lasagna. The place is very loud. We will not return. There are many better Italian restaurants.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

The food is always delicious and service is great. I have been going here for years and it has always been one of my daughter's favourites. You can take out as well. They are moving to a new location in Ottawa. The Train Yards. Can't wait. Not overly expensive. Good family restaurant!! I would recommend!!!

“Very Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

The servings were too large. They were poorly prepared. I recall ordering Fettuccine Alfedo and my impression was it was noodles with milk poured over them.

“Blah”

Ordinary food, outdated decor, mundane servers, mundane food. I dunno. I guess it's filling. And the chairs are comfortable.

In most places I'm happy to get what I pay for but at Robbie's you always get more than your money's worth; great service and great food over and over again!
