While the friendly service at Roberto's makes guests feel at home, it’s the quirky environment in Batley’s old post office building that always manages to charm. Found down Market Place around the corner from the town hall, the interior is bright, cosy and inviting, just like you might expect from an Italian restaurant running service from some locale on the sunny Mediterranean coast. Roberto's cares about the community, too, with charity nights several times a month to aid local folks, schools and hospitals in need.
When you have a hankering for proper Italian cuisine, there’s no better choice in Kirklees’ Batley than Roberto's on Market Place. Come in for lunch to take advantage of some money-saving deals, such as your choice of pizza or pasta with drink, all for under £6. For an unforgettable date, come in during the evening hours and order 2-course or 4-course dinners with options like chicken Milanese, linguine alla puttanesca, fillet of pangasius among many others. A standout in the community, it’s advised to reserve a table in advance at this popular Italian eatery.

Fabulous time as always excellent food ambience and great friendly staff. Never disappointed with the food or service highly recommend can't wait for our next visit.
Good food, nice atmosphere, attentive staff in your face or constantly interrupting your conversation. Very good choice of dishes particularly for a coeliac. Have recommended to a friend who is going this week!
lovely staff and an even better meal. the night was as good as it could have been Exellent atmosphere food was out of this world.
The food was lovely, service superb. The restaurant has a really nice friendly atmosphere. We had a very good evening and can definitely recommend this restaurant.
What can you say...Roberto's😊 Having had minor issues on our last visit they certainly made amends on our last visit, Good Friday. Took my wife, son, and his girlfriend for the meal and the service was spot on!! Food came quickly and hot! Free bottle of wine was a surprise😃 We have been dinning at Roberto's for well over 10 years and still regard it as my favourite place to eat. RECOMMEND
We have been coming to Roberto's for some years and it never fails to please. Good food always, Mauro the chef/owner is so passionate about his food and is always eager to please. Friendly and accommodating staff lead by the lovely Maria and lovely surroundings. We can't recommend Roberto's highly enough.
I feel terrible for writing this, as every other time we have visited, we have had a wonderful experience and fantastic food. The waiter we had this time, is one we have not had before, usually we get the young girl, who is wonderful, but the waiter this time seemed to hear what he wanted to hear, having to say our orders 3, 4 and even 5 times, while pointing to the items on the menu, and for them to still arrive wrong is unacceptable ! The food we did get, was still lovely, but once you have chosen from the menu, and looked forward to it, and it arrives wrong, it is never going to be as good of an experience as what you had hoped for. We did not complain at the time, as we were both hungry, and that is why I feel cheap for leaving a bad review after the event. This incident will not stop us eating at Roberto's in the future, as it is still a fantastic place, but it will make us ask to be served by someone different.
Last night, I ate the most beautifully cooked mussels I have ever tasted in my life at Roberto's! I also enjoyed a wonderful fillet steak. Having spent a lot of time in Italy over the past 10 years, I can safely say that this is 100% genuine, authentic Italian cuisine. We will certainly be back very soon. Grazie Mille, arrivederci!!!
Usually excellent at Roberto's, however our experience tonight was not as enjoyable as previous visits. Parts of the menu appeared to be unavailable & after a rather confusing 15 minutes & a decision made to just have drinks & eat elsewhere, we were informed that the whole menu was indeed available. Staff although pleasant & efficient were not as chatty as usual & it may be that they were tired after a busy festive season. Food excellent as always & our party of 5 all enjoyed the chosen dishes.
This was our first time at Roberto's but it certainly won't be our last. There were plenty of options available on the menu and the food that we ordered was incredible! The staff are also very welcoming which adds to the dining experience. If you have a love for family style Italian food, this has to be one of the best I've eaten at!
Absolutely wonderful from the moment we came through the door to the moment we left. Extremely attentive staff, complimentary nibbles whilst we had a drink and perused the menu. Fantastic selection of food and menus to suit all, at not daft prices either. Very family oriented feel, as the chef came out into the restaurant and chatted to customers and the young daughter of one of the staff was also 'helping' out in kep own way and was very proficient with the card machine when we paid. This is our fourth visit and it won't be our last.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left this was a fabulous experience. We went for a quiet family meal for my partners 50th and every member of the staff, without exception, were courteous and polite and it is obvious they are solely focused on the guests having a positive experience. The food is exceptional and all served with perfect timing. Sometimes in restaurants you can feel rushed. Not here. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. Perfect. Thank you to all the management and staff. Gary
Delicious food eaten in a restaurant with a very friendly atmosphere. Went for early bird menu but tempted beyond endurance by the a la carte menu. Acid test in UK based restaurant - can they provide tasty and crisp calamari - yes they can. Plenty of space between tables - busy but not cramped. Staff provided excellent service without being intrusive. Big portions - so arrive hungry. Prices very reasonable. Highly recommended.
It was a last minute booking for a birthday treat. Our first visit, we were a party of 8. Everyone ordered different and all enjoyed it. The food was excellent. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, service was excellent. We were seated to the rear of the restaurant which is slightly raised and more private. I certainly recommend it and we are looking forward to a return visit soon.
My wife and I used to enjoy a meal at Robertos' at least once a week until the restaurant closed down in Dewsbury. Just by chance I found that it had reopened in batley so booked a table for our wedding anniversary, although Giovanni no longer owned the restaurant the food and the service were just as good as when we last dined there. We will definitely be going again.
Good service and it was quite busy that night, although we did ask twice for water. Plenty of menu choice. Meal good - I had roast duck and the only niggle was that the roast potatoes were a little underdone for my taste. Partner felt same. Starter goats cheese on toasted ciabatti and salad - surprised at such a large portion for a starter. Tiramisu for dessert- very good. Partner had steak for mains and ice cream with black cherries for dessert.
Roberto's food is fabulous and is very good value. All of the staff are polite, helpful and serve food very efficiently. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has not tried it before.
They had taken on a new waiter, however he obviously hadn't received the proper training on how to serve at table. It is not appropriate to pass full or and empty plates across the table, rather than going behind each person and removing or slipping them on to the table from the side of the person. Clear recipe for disaster. There was no shortage of space to get around each person.
It is a lovely place. Staff is friendly. We wanted to change some dishes from the preset menu and the chef was very accommodating and offered us replacements that we all enjoyed. We found the Thursdays Tapas with wine offer good value for money. We were there for a long time and did not feel that we had to rush off. Would definitely visit again and do recommend the place.
Went on a Saturday evening, table was booked for 6pm. The staff were all very welcoming, we were seated promptly and the speed of service was just right. The food was absolutely fantastic! Mimo in particular is very funny and charming, he's a great host. Everything was perfect, couldn't fault it at all. Will definitely be going again!
Fabulous food as always and service . Would highly recommend to anyone. Steak cooked to perfection and house wi ex were really good too. Thank you Roberto's 😊
Great service. Booked online so could still have early bird menu on a fri evening. Good choice of starters & main meals staff were friendly & came over to offer more drinks . Food was delicious. We had finished & didn't require any more drinks or dessert but we weren't made to feel as if we had to leave . We will be back
Went to Roberts on Sunday night for my birthday. We like Italian food but this is by far the best one we've been to. The owner was very friendly and the meal choices were as good as he said they would be. will definitely book again next time we are near Leeds
This was the first time we visited this restaurant and despite living in the area for 8 years. The staff were lovely and friendly and the food was delicious. I would strongly recommend the Devils chicken dish and the restaurant is a definitely a must to visit.
I have eaten at robertos many times over 30 odd years, yet again amazing food and service. The staff cant do enough for you, the restaurant itself is lovely and makes for an enjoyable and romantic night out with the wife. Heres to another 30 years!
Great service, friendly staff and lovely food! Will definitely be back in the new year. Good value for money too, was pleasantly surprised. Well done Roberto's.
We had a excellent night food was delicious,we have been going to this restaurant for years and the food is always good . The service is excellent too would highly recommend to try this restaurant you will not be disappointed Brian and Debbie
Ages since I have been to Roberto's but will definitely be going back. Good food, pleasant surroundings, reasonable prices too - win, win. Highly recommended.
The food is lovely , freshly prepared with plenty of choice on the menu. The staff are friendly and really helpful. At busy times you won't be seated when the table is booked but it is usually worth the wait.
Great restaurant, lovely ambience. The Friday night special was great value, the steak was so tender and cooked to perfection and loved the mix of starters. The recent refurbishments have paid off, the place looks great and much more homely.
Superb food, excellent choice of dishes with many excellent vegetarian dishes available. The restaurant was very busy and had a relaxed atmosphere. Service was polite and our waitress was very efficient. Will be going again in the near future.
after first being told that you had overbooked and that there was no table available for us /they quickly sorted the problem and we all had a fantastic night and the food was excellent we will be going again
Delicious grilled prawns followed by lovely steak in beautiful pepper sauce. Owner Mauro always available to offer today's best from menu. Staff all very friendly - in short a lovely evening with beautiful food and wine.
Fabulous meal yet again x thank you x friendly staff and excellent service as always. Very children friendly too and teatime/early evening is a perfect time to visit when you want a family meal with children
Great food, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent value for money. We had the early bird deal which was lovely the potato skins and carbonara was delicious and great portions. Would definitely recommend!
A hidden Gem. very attentive and great food for a very reasonable price. Will be returning. I now need to type these words so it will post so it reaches the minimum words...
Pleasant surroundings and friendly greeting upon arrival. Extensive varied menu. Food well presented and of good quality. Staff very attentive throughout but not obtrusive. Intend to return in the very near future.
Great food, accommodating staff thank you for a lovely enjoyable evening, we will be back soon. Even accommodated for my baby who was with us at the time Had a fantastic evening.
The food was excellent, the staff were helpful and attentive, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the price was great value for money. As usual, a lovely night out was had by all.
Very nice restaurant, the starters, main course and (definitely) the desserts were excellent. All of the staff were very friendly and well spoken. Definitely recommend to friends. I will go again.
Welcoming atmosphere, and staff. Good food selection avalable, and well cooked and served. Strongly recommend. Under no pressure to finish a course, and no hurry to give you the bill.
Great food, great service. One member of our party was not keen on the main course she had - as she hardly touched it, they didn't charge us for it!
Lovely staff and lovely food! Will be returning very soon! Loved the olives on the tables where you could have a drink before sitting to your table, nice touch x
Staff very friendly. Food absolutely fantastic and good value. Excellent surroundings would definitely recommend this restaurant. Good menus for the occasion and also good menu for any other time
As fantastic as always !! Love the place 😊 food and service were fabulous!! Prices are reasonable and the settings perfect for any occasion. Can't wait to go again.
This is one of the best restaurants around,the garlic mushrooms are to die for and the thing I like is you are not rushed.Top marks for a top restaurant
Fabulous food, excellent service, tastefully decorated restaurant, brilliant prices. The menu has so much choice! We all ordered something different and tasted every dish - all were perfect :-)
Ate here again for Mother's Day lovely food and great value for money , friendly staff. This is the 3rd time in as many weeks and will definitely return
Very enjoyable meal. Great service. Ideal stop off before going to see a play at Batley Town Hall. The complementary vodka drink after the meal was an added bonus.
Friendly Italian restaurant with lots of charm. Food was delicious and really good value. The house wine is very good value and we were looked after extremely well.
