Roberto's cares about the community, too, with charity nights several times a month to aid local folks, schools and hospitals in need.

I am a regular customer of Roberto's and as always the food and service were excellent. The menu is extensive and from venison to pizza the food is good. Four of us dined there last night and everyone enjoyed their food and wine-no complaints

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!

Excellent welcome, unfussed and we were given a choice of tables. We chose the Fixed Price Menu, The Manager offered us a wine that was off list, related to our food choices, costing around £15. Excellent Sicilian wine. Excellent starters and main courses. An excellent meal, Thanks to all the team at Roberto's

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.

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.

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.

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.

As experienced Tapas buffs we reached new heights at Robertos. The range and quality of dishes was amazing, as good as anywhere we have been before , in Spain or at home, and it made for a great gastronomic experience. We are now incurably 'hooked' on this venue and could not recommend it more highly. A little hard to find but well worth the search.

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.
