Roberto's is a true neighborhood gem. We have been regulars here for ~30 years. We normally dine here during the week nights. Most recent visit was on a Saturday and the restaurant was much busier. Despite that, the noise level was OK but the servers were rushed, maybe because there just weren't enough of them?

We will never go back. After being seated and waiting for 15 minutes we asked if we had a server. Then again at 20, and 25 minutes. Finally after almost 30 minutes of waiting our waiter came with no apology and took our appetizer order. It took over 20 minutes to get our food. Then another 10 - 15 minutes to take our food order. We received our dinners almost two hours after we were seated. Our waiter was abrupt, was clearly bored with us, and gave us the worst service we have ever had. No matter how good the food is we would never return.

The calamari is outstanding. They flash fry it so the calamari remains very tender. The meals were very well prepared and the service was unobtrusive and quick.

When the restaurant owner stops by your table to greet you and to make sure that everything is fine and delicious, then you know you are in a first-class restaurant!

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.

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

Dining alfresco! Can't beat it.
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.
