Good food and good service. Very noisy though and my chair was bumped several times due to crowded dining room. Overall very good experience.

My wife and I were absolutely surprised how nice Roberto’s was. There are so many fine Italian restaurants but Roberto’s has one of the best combinations of value, great home made italian food, pasta cooked perfectly al dente, and the scotatta filet was the softest steak I remember ever eating. Seriously, almost melts in your mouth. You won’t need teeth to chew it. No exaggeration.

Ambiance just fine. People were dressed business casual to casual. Jeans are fine but it feels more upscale. The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating. From now on this is our go to fine dining Italian restaurant!

Robertos is a neighborhood gem. It is always great food and pleasant atmosphere. The patio is really wonderful but during the winter the restaurant is warm and inviting.

NYE. expected to wait on a busy holiday but there was absolutely nowhere to stand without blocking the entrance and waited over an hour past reservation. No apologies nor attempt to comp a drink or appetizer. Simply no acknowledgement of our frustration. Food was fine but nothing special. Could easily get same depth of menu for less money and same quality. Won’t be back.

Had reservations for NYE, they were running behind, understandable. We were sat an an improvised table, and had to request bread service, but once it arrived it was delicious! Received wrong soup, had to flag someone down and eventually got the right one. Hubby had meat lasagna, I had vegetable lasagna, both were delicious. Coffee came with no sugar or spoons, again possible because the table was set up at the last minute? Food was served promptly and staff very attentive, server just seemed a little overwhelmed, we hope to go back on a regular evening to enjoy the food maybe try the pizza and hopefully server will less overwhelmed because of the holiday rush? Hope to go back soon.

Due to large crowd the noise level was high, but this was New Years Eve. They handled the crowd well and the food was great.

7 people in our party for a birthday dinner from 16 to 80+ years old. Service was prompt and attentive but not intrusive. Food was flavorful and server friendly and informed. Something for everyone in the menu. Would like not to be right by washrooms and kitchen in the future but was quiet enough for us to all hear each other.

We've been there several times before, but never on Christmas eve. Would not recommend it, over 1 hour wait and sat us at table that was not "ideal". We'll return since food and service are always good.

For the second year in a row, on Christmas Eve, we got the table by the coat rack and bar. Don't appreciate getting knocked into while I am trying to enjoy my holiday dinner. Also, the bus boys approached us multiple times to clear our plates when we obviously weren't done with our meal, it was an attempt to rush us. Won't be booking again.

I would probably recommend Roberto’s to someone who was specifically looking to dine in Elmhurst but otherwise no. I asked for a special table for a special event, but we did not get one. Our waiter was nice but not attentive. I asked for a refill of my drink. He took my glass and never returned. I felt it was intentional so that we would leave. The food was ok, but nothing extraordinary.

We were happy to get our favorite waiter, Giovanni. It was my dads birthday and he was kind enough to take multiple photos of our family. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I like hat it is quiet enough to talk across the table unlike many places these days that crank the music.

We have chosen Roberto's as our go to restaurant when we need a good Italian fix! As always Mario is our server and is attentive, knows the menu and you cannot go wrong with his special suggestions. Great for Sunday supper, weekday lunch, dinner and special occasions. When you are in Elmhurst stop in and have a drink at their bar and stay for the food!

I ordered the eggplant Parmesan which was as dry as shoe leather. It tasted like it was frozen and then microwave. I then ordered gnocchi with bolognese sauce which was good. For the prices charged everything should be freshly made!

I don't know about Mario. He always brings food looking sloppy, with food over the edge of the bowl. I don't think he likes me. I don't know why he treats us so poorly. Everyone else at Roberto's treats us so nice!

Roberto's offers excellent Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. My wife and I have enjoyed both pasta and meat entrees - Tortellini with Alfredo sauce, Lasagna, Chicken Parmigiana and Chicken Saltimbocca - that are delicious and cooked to perfection.

Service, especially on Saturday night is slow, because the restaurant is extremely busy with walk-ins waiting for a table. Reservations are recommended.

Roberto's is one of our go to places.

Been here many times and always consistent in food quality. Tried rack of lamb for the first time, not good...was overcooked and tough...was disappointed.
