Was staying nearby for holiday weekend & wanted good Italian after turkey day. Prior top my trip, I researched local rest's close to my hotel & made a reservation online. Reservations are a MUST!!!!!!! I was seated right away & had a very pleasant & friendly waitress. Ordered the French onion soup--very hearty & not salty(which is a good thing!)... More

I hardly ever give five-star reviews. I love Italian food and have been to all the Italian places around Ocean Isle. Roberto's is my favorite by far. They have all the Italian classics, plus healthy and gluten-free options. The service is *excellent,* always. I literally go here once a week, at least. Chef Dave comes out to visit the table...

service was okay but the food was only average. Staff assumed we were tourists but have been in the restaurant many times. Often run out of items in the early evening.

We arrived at Roberto's based on recommendations from a patron at a restaurant from our first night as well as the resort staff. The menu had lots of options and guarantees that everyone should be able to find something to satisfy their hunger. We were all satisfied as our group covered the menu from steak to lasagna to spaghetti and... More

Good place for Italian style food. The spaghetti was really good and the meatball was big. My wife and I both had to take left overs home with us. Service was good. Nice place to eat at.

Maybe we were just growing tired of the typical beach fare, but we enjoyed our experience at Roberto's immensely. My husband had a Thai salmon dish that he raved about and I happily enjoyed gluten-free chicken Alfredo. (This restaurant has many GF options!) The waiter was busy, but he was still very attentive. We would return to Roberto's again and... More

As many times as I have been to Roberto's (and that is frequently as we are locals), I keep waiting for it to strike me as wonderful. And it always stops short of that. The food is consistently good but not great. The service is always good, but not great. I enjoy Roberto's mostly because of its convenience and the... More

We were following recommendations. Great anticipation. I ordered eggplant parmesan which was my favorite meal. I don't know if I will ever be able to eat it again. very little cheese, loaded with breading and oil. flavor was oil. I could barely stomach 1/3 of the portion. I had indigestion soon after the meal. Trouble getting to sleep. Intestinal distress... More

Local residents who are frustrated by restaurants that struggle to provide great service, we went to Robertos twice. Both visits were marked by great tasting food and truly outstanding service. The meatball appetizer with fried banana peppers is one of the best I have had. My wife and I really enjoyed our entrees and my wife says the lasagna (made... More
