I write this review with a very heavy heart. I went to Robertos for dinner yesterday evening 17/5/22 after having had lunch there some time ago. I was with family who were reluctant to go to an italian restaurant but I assured them the food...was excellent. So two of us ordered different prawn dishes which were on the menu. Mine were pili pili prawns. These came as a poor amateur cooks version of prawn curry. I was served this with fries!. Very disappointed I requested the very excellent waiter to bring me some bread to eat with the watery curry. He obliged very pleasantly. for that I am thankful. My partner ordered another prawn dish which also came as a watery curry, this time with a sweetish taste. He did not bother to eat it and just ate the Fried potatoes which accompanied the prawns. Mind you he had requested for roast potatoes and he does know the difference between roast and fried potatoes. We had also ordered a Pizza which was ok not brilliant as well as ossobucco which again came as a curry with mixed vegetables! All in all very very disappointing . I think the chef was in a CURRY mood. But nope I will not go to Robertos again.More

I asked for a Penny Alfredo. The quantity that was brought to my table was a BIG joke!!!!! For 1450/=!!!!! I had to tell our waiter that it was unacceptable. The plate was taken back and returned with an increased portion. I believe that this...shouldn't happen. I always remember Roberto's fondly and that specific meal. However this time, they have definitely lost a customer. It will be a while before I set foot here again. Their service standard also leaves alot to be desiredMore

This place offer an ideal environment for family or friends to meet for good Italian Cuisine. The open environment gives a nice ambience for relaxed conversations. The staff are friendly and the quality of the food is top notch.

I relocated in Kenya a few month ago and I was looking for a good pizzeria in the Mombasa area. I was told that Roberto's could be the right spot. Now I can confirm that the pizza is on a very high level of quality:...the crust is crunchy, the tomato sauce genuine, the topping delicious. I was literally felt I could be eating in Italy during the meal. Make sure you book because it was packed!More

We visited this place twice in a goup 5 (each time) and it was top notch. The ambiance, food and service was excellent. Had the dynamite shrimps, prawns cocktail, pizza and ravioli. All were amazing and ended it al with the Royale Tiramisu. Keep up...the great standard and cannot recommend this place enough!More

The Best restaurant in town. Good food and owner is very funny and entertaining. Wife is the most of polite woman I ever met. When people called him racist. It's not TRUE. Some Asian would come and order 1 pizza and 1 big coke for...10 people. And he will serve. But, when they asked one of scoop of ice cream and 10 spoons , he'll served it too. But , when they asked 10 small plates for the 2 scoops of ice cream... sorry. He has right to refuse. I was the witness . So, better to try it yourself . BTW, his selection of Deli and wine is incredible. Bono appetiteMore

I went here for pizza ate the mushroom,ham and something else.It was delicious. The cappuccino was great too. I enjoyed, the pizza was hot from the oven. Maybe because I went at 4 but there were just a few people.

Ah italians my best friend is Italian so I'm a bit biased but really nice Italian food served here and popular with tourists even if not on the coastline. Along links road from mombasa shopping city mall on the way to cinemax on the left...side is this worth visiting pizza pasta steaks fish menu that I'm sure your enjoy and once again really nice staff working there. Once again hope this business survives these bad times coming through and back to normal asp. Last eaten there back in Feb 2020More

I like coming here when visiting Mombasa and was great to have an outdoor early dinner. I had the mixed carpaccio which was excellent would have been nice with a side of wasabi or soy sauce but it was very good nonetheless. For the main...I had roast pork and roast potatoes it was good and delicious but too much meat and I couldn't finish. I had the berry cheesecake to top off the evening and as usual was excellent. Service was excellent and attentive and ambience greatMore
