My initial reservation through Open Table did not go through but I did not realize until I announced myself. They worked diligently to get a table for my wife and I. Very accommodating!

Came here for Valentine’s Day. I was shocked at how many tables they cram into this place. My husband basically had to sit sideways on his chair because the table behind us was so close he couldn’t put his chair back any further or he would be bumping into the person behind him. The food was good. However I don’t think it’s worth the money. We were pretty shocked when the bill came. And we didn’t even order a lot! We probably won’t return just for that reason. There are plenty of other places for a better value that are just as good or even better.

My wife and I have been to Roberto’s often. I am usually very pleased with the meals I order, but the scallop and gnocchi entree I had on 2/14 was quite salty and not up to the usual high quality I expect at Roberto’s. My wife did enjoy her meal.

Probably because it was Valentine's Day the service was slow. It took 2 hours for our meal. The table with cold and drafty as it was in a corner of the building near the window. But they moved us at my request. But the meal was delicious!

Good food; a little pricey. Seating cramped! Wine pour is ridiculous. The glasses are too large. I understand it needs to breathe, but when the pour is less then a 1/4 if the glass invest in smaller wine glasses.

We have been to Roberto's on several occasions. At this visit the entire establishment was completely filled. Despite the crowd the service was excellent; not a beat was missed by the bussers or the server. The server did an excellent job of timing the taking of our order, bringing our drinks, delivering dinner and offering dessert and then the check. We couldn't be more pleased. The couple who accompanied us had never been here before and were very impressed and said they will return soon.

Roberto's is one of a kind and different in today's world of "me too restaurants and menus". Very cozy and untrendy which is very refreshing. Thanks Roberto's. You made our evening very special!

Great food and excellent wait staff. I have enjoyed their pizza since I was a kid and still love it. That said, they have great Italian dishes that are 100% authentic!

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.

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.
