    We felt rushed to order right after we arrived. The people I ordered was soggy and the pancetta was raw bacon that was inedible. Then we waited forever for the check. I don't recommend this restaurant!

    It was a good place with great ambience. The value for money would be a 6 out of 10. The quality of food was good. The only thing bad about the food was fries. They tasted bad and old and a bit too salty.

    Massive thanks to the team at Roberta’s! Put a special request in for my mams birthday which they accommodated and which made her really happy. Service was excellent, team were efficient and friendly. Food was very tasty too. Went on a Tuesday so it was more quiet than usual but also very calm evening. Thank you :)

    Unfort Roberta’a was a big let down today, the table service was shocking, just very obvious people work there that aren’t happy in their job …. Food was ok, but menu on website didn’t match menu given. Couldn’t even give a tip, was meant to be a special occasion but we immediately left once finished our food. It wasn’t pleasant full stop.

    Food is decent but the service is so slow. Our reservation was changed to be a half hour early as they needed to close the kitchen early that night but when we arrived we were left waiting for nearly a half hour after being seated, so by the time we ordered it was later than the time of our original booking. Food was very slow to come, then we were rushed out at the end. Same problem last time I visited, we eventually asked for some bread while we waited for the food but it never arrived. It's a shame because it's a lovely restaurant otherwise.

    Grubby interiors. Tables not clean. Floor under table filthy. Place needs a general clean. Menu not as advertised on OpenTable. Food was fine but given how grubby the interiors were it distracted from it. Would not recommend and will not be back

    The ambience was lovely and the staff were accommodating and incredible when there was issues with the food. They were polite and although over worked, friendly and professional. However the food completely let the experience down. The food turned up cold and was very bland. Such a shame, because the venue has so much potential.

    A very good evening with little improvements to be made, food was good, however service was slow, we had one waitress with an amazing personality that served us briefly , but plates were left waiting to be cleared and drinks/coffees/tea weren’t offered to be ordered with dessert, other than that it was a very good evening
