Wood-burning pizza at it's best. Perfect crust, cool place, loved the drinking-glasses - just plain jars. Bloody Mary before wasn't perfect but ok. Great orange wine from Goriska Brda was a definite plus.

Excellent brick oven pizza. Thin crispy crusty. Not too much cheese. Delicious sauce. Perfect. Don't let the state of the building scare you away. The graffiti only adds to the charm.

Our niece took us to Roberta's. What a find. Vibrant, crowded and casual at the same to times. Wood-fired pizzas were all imaginative and delicious. I wasn't expecting anything but average service but I was wrong -- it was great service.

roberta's serves creative delicious and distinctive food (the pizza too). you will eat very very well here. but there is so much more to the place than it's outstanding grub. while you wait for your table -- and reader, you will wait -- you will find yourself at the semi-outdoor bar, milling about with the lovely young inhabitants of the strange new world called bushwick wherein the restaurant resides. the crowd here is friendly and charming and clearly having a good time. and its good humor is contagious. when you finally sit down to your meal in the boisterous dining room, happy and ready to eat, do yourself a favor and call over the sommelier. she will help you navigate the wine list, excellent and unusual in equal parts. oh, and yes, she too is young and charming, to go with the vibe.

Literally, hands down the best pizza in NYC - period. I have lived in NYC for 10 years and have yet to find a joint that tops Roberta's. The pizza menu changes daily, with some staples always being available. The staff is friendly and quick and the place is always buzzing. I will say, if you go, be prepared to wait. I have never been to Roberta's when there isn't at least a 20 minute wait to sit - even for a party of just 2. That said, you can get the full menu served to you in the back bar, and the wait times tend to be overestimated at the host stand, so even if they say 2 hours, it is more like 1 hour or so.

Be sure to get the classic margharita pizza - still my favorite even with all their wonderful topping options. Tried and true. And, if you go around brunch time on a weekend....please don't miss the slab bacon. A slice of that with one of their spicy bloody marys and your afternoon is made.
