“Excellent italian buffet”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Roberto's is only open Wed-Sun and is very reasonably priced under $20. We are fussy italian eaters but we didn't waste anything. All the food was very tasty and a nice variety tho not huge. The restaurant itself is pretty fancy (casual dress is fine) and the service not the usual buffet service but more of a classy restaurant. We will definitely return.

“Nice Italian Buffet for the money”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

We had tickets to a performance at Trump Plaza so we decided to get a bite to eat before the show. We decided on Roberto's solely on a whim and were rather impressed for a buffet court. The decor of the restaurant is rather upscale and on one side has larger windows with an excellent view of the beach. The buffet line felt as if I were in line at the cocktail hour of a fancier wedding as opposed to other buffet courts where there are stations are in several place. The quality of the food was very good. Since the fare is strictly Italian, there are fewer selections to choose from vs. the buffet at Borgata or Harrah's. However, for $19.99 ($17.99 for Trump One players card holders) it was a good value. The wait staff was very attentive, were quick with our cocktail orders (not included in the price ), and brought us a little tray of cannoli and italian cookies for dessert. I would certainly consider going back to Roberto's the next time I find myself in Trump Plaza.

“Just not very good!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I give Roberto's an average rating because not all is lost in what could be one of the worse restaurants in Atlantic City. The servers here are appreciative that they still have a job. They do somewhat of a good job. Our server was a bit slow taking our plates away but the food being so bad took over for this disappointing dining experience. Roberto's is now an Italian buffet for $19.99. Not all foods listed on the menu are available. They offer a drenched in dressing Ceasar salad at their very small salad section. The main dishes completely lack flavor. The pizza was decent as was the bread selection. This buffet is quite small with not a lot to choose from. I was tempted to say that I would give them $9.99 for my lackluster dinner. Take your hard earned money else where and get a meal that's worth it.

“Italian Buffet”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Ate there for the Italian Buffet. Great food and selection. Great view on the 6th floor with a view to the boardwalk. Would recommend it over Evos
