Italian
Roberto Paciullo opened his namesake restaurant almost twenty years ago. Since then it has become a neighborhood favorite and a destination for those visiting Arthur Avenue. He prepares the cuisine of his beloved hometown Salerno, Italy. The specials change weekly and reflect Roberto's creative use of the local ingredients from pasta in cartoccio to the perennial favorite veal osso buco.
Now closed Mondays for the time being.

Roberto's is certainly the best Italian restaurant on Arthur Avenue, and in my experience the best in all of New York. Particularly recommended are their homemade pasta specials, which are decadent.

Grossly disappointed with quality of food and portion size was small. It used to be worth the trip, but something is missing. If they don't make the necessary corrections, they will take a hit even when Covid is behind us.

Best pasta dish I’ve ever had in my life. Semi wide flat pasta noodle in a Parmesan black pepper sauce topped with fresh shaved black truffles. Tomahawk steak was amazing as well.

We went to celebrate my fathers birthday and the meal was perfect. The restaurant was safely spaced and clean. Everything was delicious and fresh. We shared everything which the waitstaff split at tableside. it was a 10/10 meal

The atmosphere is intimate. Great for a date or special evening. Service is magnificent. The Italian dishes are great. I've heard the steak is not the best, but if you want a steak, go to a steakhouse. You want good Italian Food, got to Robertos. A bit on the high side price wise, but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.

We were so happy to be back! Robertos never disappoints! We love coming here and hope others will come back as well. Robertos and Arthur Avenue vendors need everyone to come back and buy their delicious wares! We will be back soon! We had the succulent Veal Osso buco and the Veal Chop parmigiana. Delicious!

Fusilli and seafood, pasta with truffle both excellent.
Not as well-heated as we would like, but what can you do...

Always the best, both food and service.

It’s a shame what NYC is putting these restaurants through. Limited capacity seating an no bar are putting restaurants at risk. I just hope Roberto’s can weather the storm!

We have visited many times and been thrilled with dinner. While all could be a result of Covid 19, our most recent dinner was merely average....the menu is limited, the atmosphere is dead, however the prices remain sky high....service was very good.

Excellent food- as always. Excellent service. Our first meal eating inside and they were careful about taking temperatures, and huge table separations. I feel for all restaurants trying to stay alive with 25% (at most) allowed.

The food, and Service, and interior decor were great!

We had Burrata, a Rib-Eye steak, and Pasta that was fantastic! The Pasta seemed homemade 😋. Sauces, and ingredients, were delicious!

Our Server was friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and attentive!

We sat outside (70 degree November night during COVID19) and noticed how beautiful the Restaurant is!

Great location and good prices so if you're near Arthur Avenue, in the Bronx, stop at Robertos for a great meal!

Sat outside on an early Saturday evening. Staff was very attentive but we were not rushed. Food was delicious, nice wine options at a very good price. We have been here before and always enjoy it and can't wait to go back!

Excellent food, good service. A quiet place. However, a bit pricey. We went for lunch. There is no lunch menu. There is only one menu so you are paying dinner prices for lunch.

Roberto's is a great Italian restaurant off of Arthur Ave in the heart of The Bronx's little Italy. We dine here pretty often; solely because we know no matter what we order we will be purely satisfied. We recommend anything off of their daily specials menu, as well as any of their pasta dishes. They make their own pasta in house. Enjoy the semi loud ambience!

Roberto's has been suggested to me so many times I've lost count. We finally were able to score a reservation and WOW! The pasta special was the best pasta I've had in quite some time. Our dover sole was outstanding. The Tartufo so yum. Everything was beyond delicious. Our servers were absolutely fantastic and we will definitely be back! XOXO
