“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Loved the fact that Robertos was open on a Monday during a very wet February. The lovely waitress was helpful and friendly and although its small the tables were well spaced and this waitress placed customers around the room in a not cramped way. The menu is very nice using a modern twist to Italian food, we did not have to wait long for our starters which were very good, lovely salad with the garlic prawns, no wet lettuce leaves here!! The pasta I had was done very well and my husband loved his main too. Good selection of food and specials, fine wines a lovely sauvignon very chilled and crisp, we could not manage a sweet but some did and they looked very good. We would go back here again!

“You'll never be disappointed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Robertos is tucked away at the bottom of the hill in Bowness, by the mini-roundabout.
I have visited on many occaisions with family and friends and there is little I can say other than it is always very, very good. It is cosy and tastefully decorated.
The food has something for everyone and is very good value considering the quality and presentation.
It isn't just a meal, it is rather an experience; and a most enjoyable one. It is on two floors and the toilets are upstairs; so if you're not good on your feet think twice about going; there is no lift!!!
Highly recommended; you should definitely go!!!!

“Surprise birthday meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Excellent food, good wine.
Two friends met us at the resturant for birthday surprise. Staff were great and hid our friends well!
We sat upstairs lovely seats. Normally don't get desert but the food was that nice just had to.
Would go back again. And a great location witha few bars nearby to have a further drink if you wanted

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Food and staff lovely, but beware in Winter of getting a table near to the door, it makes for a very chilly visit as the door is always being opened by people coming and going.
