Good food. Plenty of choices on the menu and a good wine list.
Our waiter had too many tables to serve and was not very attentive.
Will go back

The staff was very accommodating and turned down the air conditioner which was very cold. The waiter was great with explanations and suggestions for our food. Delicious describes our food. When we ordered a dessert, it was served on a cold plate for the ice cream and a warm plate for the cake which made the dessert wonderful and easy to share. The whole experience was classy and one to repeat.

I had the salmon dinner. I was excellent.
The server was very attentive and provided good advice on what would make a good meal.
I needed special items removed from the order and he did that too.
Well done!

One of my favorite restaurants! Unfortunately, I only get here about once a year and I always go for the lobster ravioli! My husband absolutely loved the mussels, which were one of the specials of the days. He also absolutely loved the fish he got, which was also a special of the days.

Excellent calamari, best I. Have had. Food was outstanding. Service was great, the only reason that I downgraded service was that our orders did not come out together. One set of orders came out about 5 minutes after everyone else’s.

My reservation was for 630 we showed up at about 615 and had to wait almost 20 minutes we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside we said we prefer inside but would consider outside if it was significantly faster they kept us waiting until 645 put a set a table in the far back corner that I could barely squeeze into and I am not a large person I was attacked by little gnats. for the first 20 minutes the server never showed up to take a drink order then jumped in front of us and was awkward at best, he walked away and left us sitting there. Bread arrived and by then I couldn’t stand the bugs. We asked to be seated inside to which they graciously accommodated and promptly took 45 minutes to seat us they put us at a table in the middle of a walkway that clearly was not meant to be a table and while I appreciated the effort the execution was terrible over the course of the next two hours for the two of us dinner finally arrived that Server was kind and pleasant but clearly under the influence of either a drug or alcohol and made both of us feel extremely uncomfortable the food was less than average my date had a pizza which she said was good. I had a classic Rossini Rotolo which was laden with sauce and lacked in flavor I would only suggest this restaurant if you have no other Italian restaurant options and I am extremely disappointed that for a local highly rated restaurant that was our experience I will not go back

Elmhurst is Roberto's!
Even the snippy waitress could not spoil our dining enjoyment.

6 of us dined at Roberto’s to celebrate my Mom’s 75th birthday. Food was excellent, service was excellent. LOTS of gluten free options. GF cheese ravioli with marinara was out of this world good. Baked fig appetizer (figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon ...also GF) was incredible. My 16 yr old son had the GF gnocchi and loved it. Sauces were all so yummy. Service was attentive and personal. We had a lovey time and will be back.

Patricia was our server & terrific! We had to scoot our table away from the railing during the rainstorm, everything was great. Appetizer of fig wrapped in pancetta was delicious! One of these days we will try the pizza, it looks fantastic!

We went to Roberto's on Saturday, and then again this past Friday. And, I'd like to go back again tonight! It's my new favorite place. The outdoor patio is so quaint. There are ceiling fans running constantly which keeps a nice breeze running through. I had to have the halibut with jalepeno cream sauce again. It was as amazing as it was six days before:). My friend had the rigatoni bolognese; and it was quite good...very fresh! I can't wait to go back!!!

Made reservation for outdoors but when we arrived, manager told us that they don't reserve outside and it would be a 30 minute wait. We ate inside.
Old school wait staff that was hardly there and made us feel very rushed. Food was mediocre. I've eaten there before and food was much better (and so was out waiter).

This was our first visit to Roberto's, and it is definitely not our last! When I made the reservation through Open Table, I had written a request for a table outside, if possible. When we arrived, we were told, we could immediately sit inside, or we could wait about 20 minutes for an outside table. We decided to wait. And, I'm so glad we did. What a lovely patio area! There were many great-sounding entrees on the menu. My dish was unbelievably delicious!!! I had the halibut with jalepeno cream sauce...wow!!!! It was to be served with a saffron risotto (which I would normally love, but was avoiding carbs:)). The kitchen gladly substituted sautéed spinach, which was also amazing! My friend had the chicken parmesan. It appeared to have a heavy breading because he pushed a lot to the side. However, the tomato sauce was very fresh!
We will go back to Roberto's; my friend will try another dish....but I am having the halibut for sure!
