Italian
Roberto Paciullo opened his namesake restaurant almost twenty years ago. Since then it has become a neighborhood favorite and a destination for those visiting Arthur Avenue. He prepares the cuisine of his beloved hometown Salerno, Italy. The specials change weekly and reflect Roberto's creative use of the local ingredients from pasta in cartoccio to the perennial favorite veal osso buco.
Now closed Mondays for the time being.

Excellent food- as always. Excellent service. Our first meal eating inside and they were careful about taking temperatures, and huge table separations. I feel for all restaurants trying to stay alive with 25% (at most) allowed.

The food, and Service, and interior decor were great!

We had Burrata, a Rib-Eye steak, and Pasta that was fantastic! The Pasta seemed homemade 😋. Sauces, and ingredients, were delicious!

Our Server was friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and attentive!

We sat outside (70 degree November night during COVID19) and noticed how beautiful the Restaurant is!

Great location and good prices so if you're near Arthur Avenue, in the Bronx, stop at Robertos for a great meal!

Sat outside on an early Saturday evening. Staff was very attentive but we were not rushed. Food was delicious, nice wine options at a very good price. We have been here before and always enjoy it and can't wait to go back!

Excellent food, good service. A quiet place. However, a bit pricey. We went for lunch. There is no lunch menu. There is only one menu so you are paying dinner prices for lunch.

Roberto's is a great Italian restaurant off of Arthur Ave in the heart of The Bronx's little Italy. We dine here pretty often; solely because we know no matter what we order we will be purely satisfied. We recommend anything off of their daily specials menu, as well as any of their pasta dishes. They make their own pasta in house. Enjoy the semi loud ambience!

Roberto's has been suggested to me so many times I've lost count. We finally were able to score a reservation and WOW! The pasta special was the best pasta I've had in quite some time. Our dover sole was outstanding. The Tartufo so yum. Everything was beyond delicious. Our servers were absolutely fantastic and we will definitely be back! XOXO

Great Saturday evening dinner with friends. All 4 of us are NYC born and raised and 3 of us are Bronx born and raised and we made this our meeting destination for dinner on a Saturday evening. We certainly chose well......the service was absolutely attentive and informative and the food was spectacular. Two of us split the chicken special and the menu chicken dish, at the recommendation of our waiter and it was a perfect decision...the only drawback is the parking in the area.....but that's life in NYC...

One of my favorite restaurants in the U.S.

We sat in the wine cellar. They really need to put some accoustic tiles to absorb the noise, but everything else was fabulous

As always...the food and service at Roberts was outstanding. It is my favorite restaurant by far. It’s a little noise and a little tight (not too bad).....but it’s a happy and festive environment. If you like Italian food....Robertos is the place to go.....hands down

It's not what it was once after moving. The food was just okay and very expensive for lunch.
House wine was $12. Additionally, parking is a nightmare. Definitely would not go back.

Roberto's is the perfect place for a family celebration. The food is excellent, the kind of traditional Italian food that you remember from years ago. The staff is courteous and friendly, as well as being efficient. The ambience is sublime; it is "old style" but not dated, everything is fresh and looking like it was just renovated yesterday, in a timeless style.

This was not my best experience at Roberto's. While the pastas were outstanding as usual, the entrees were not. I had the Halibut special and it was overcooked with the clams in it were cold, suggesting it had been sitting aside and not made to order. My son had a veal dish which was similarly overcooked and he didn't finish it. The rest of my family had pasta dishes which were devoured. Wine list is good with some decent values in Sicily and Sardinia, but little else in the usual suspects.

Always consistent!
