Good choice of dishes We enjoyed the tasty tapas which was hot and well prepared. Lots of other interesting main course dishes on offer. Pleasant ambiance with excellent service. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a great meal at Roberto's, in the centre of Bowness-on-Windermere, having arrived on a Friday evening without a booking. Considering that the restaurant is fairly small, we were pleasantly surprised by this. Overall the ambience is cosy and welcoming. The staff were very prompt and attentive.

The food was simply excellent, with a reasonable range of dishes and a good number of daily specials. The specials included four meat dishes, two fish dishes and a vegetarian dish. All of the food is locally sourced and prepared beautifully. The desserts were also mouthwatering.

The wine list was rather short, with only a few varietal choices. Importantly for a family restaurant, there was a fair proportion of wines available by the glass or half bottle.

Overall, a really good Italian restaurant and one of the best meals we have had on this trip, with very good value.

We booked in advance and were pleased we did as it was obviously busy and people were being turned away. The food was quite pricey but it was nice. We had the belly pork and black pudding and a nice bottle of red to wash it down. We would probably eat here again when staying in Bowness.

as a local we look for great little restaurants that are consistently good, with great service, great food and a nice ambience. This place ticks all the boxes for us. Will keep coming back and look forward to enjoying another meal soon.

I booked this restaurant 2 weeks in advance as a birthday meal for my friends while we stayed in bowness for the weekend before Christmas. My husband and I have dined there before back in 2012 and was very impressed. This year we arrived early wet and cold and had a very warm welcome and shown to our table in the window downstairs the place was not full for the week before Christmas the starter and wine very good pate/prawns/mushrooms main meals very good my husband and friend had the belly pork and black pudding dish of the board it is suppose to be there best seller we had the beef not over impressed one little complaint when the veg was served 4 individual pots we all lifted our lids to find we had all got broccoli when I asked if they had made a mistake was told no only broccoli tonight a bit strange when we paid round £22.00 per each main meal we all did agree a liitle expensive for nothing special don't think we will be in any rush to return .
