My husband celebrated his birthday at his favorite Italian restaurant. We love the ambiance and friendly staff. The food is quite remarkable and there is a nice selection of wines to choose from. Overall we had a wonderful time at Robiolina’s and look forward to our next visit.

Robiolina bats out of its league for a little strip mall location. This is a real hidden gem. I was torn on the 4 for service, it was really very good, it's just that it has slipped a bit post-COVID and who can really blame them for that.

I ordered my favorite pasta from them which ended up having a long black hair in it. I wasn’t even angry because stuff happens and the waiter was very nice about the situation. I requested my food to be remade just to be brought out the same pasta that had the hair in it 5 minutes later. They told me “there’s no one in the kitchen with long black hair” as I see multiple ladies walking in the back with long black hair. I thought this was my favorite place, never coming here again.

Alex was our server and bartender. He was perfect! He made the best dirty martini that I've ever had. The food was fantastic! I had the duck. It was cooked perfectly. I will be back. Great experience!

DC quality food in Stafford. We ordered every appetizer tapas style and left sated and delighted. Tender calamari, delicate carpaccio, savory scallops, and succulent octopus. Paired with a gorgeous sangiovese and finished with refreshing sorbet in blood orange and raspberry. Quiet atmosphere and attentive service. Wild horses couldn't keep us away.

We've been to Robiolina a number of times and we've never been disappointed. This is a family favorite and will continue to be. Our waitress (Melanie) was terrific - very attentive without being intrusive. And, as always, the food was terrific. We'll be back again...!

This is our second visit to Robiolina. The service and food at this restaurant is nothing short of spectacular! Our son is on MCBQ for another 6 months and we hope to visit again. What a neighborhood gem! If we lived here, we’d eat here every week!

What a WONDERFUL Italian Restaraunt!! I am from Boston and I have not had authentic, delicious Italian like this anywhere around! Beats the places in Fredericksburg for sure!

Look no further.. the Risotto was amazing, Gnocci, Osso Bucco and sooo much more! Wonderful Italian Wine list to choose from!

Servers are attentive and very familiar with the menu :}

YOU MUST TRY !!!

We are visiting family and took our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughters to Robiolina last night. Everything was stupendous. We shared calamari appetizers, which were light and delicious, and all of our pasta dishes were superb. And our oldest granddaughter had the cheesecake for dessert, which she loved.

The food was very good. Service was excellent as well. It was definitely a pleasant surprise since the location is in a small strip mall. Will definitely go again when in Stafford.

Consistently great food, service and ambience. Our server (Stephanie) did her usual outstanding job in a place we love to take family and friends. We'll definitely be back! Of note, be sure to make reservations as this place gets crowded on Friday and Saturday nights.

The food was fantastic. Interesting complex dishes, like seared scallops on a bed of lentils, that show off the chef's talent. Several lamb offerings, which I love (had the lamb ravioli).

Service was very good. We were there on a Sunday night so it was not crowded.

Ambiance is not great. It's in a strip mall and though they try, it's still in a strip mall.

We will definitely be going back. Probably for Thursday night live music or Wednesday night 1/2 price wine.

This was a hidden gem of a restaurant. I was traveling for business and my colleagues and I were looking for a place to have a dinner meeting. They easily accommodated our 10 person party, the service was quick and attentive and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good Italian meal!

This restaurant is a hidden gem that shouldn't be missed. We got seated promptly. Ceasar was our waiter and he was attentive, patient and checked on us often. I had the Robiolina Ravioli and my husband had the Pansotti Ravioli and both dishes were amazing. Perfectly prepared. We shared a caprese salad and an excellent bottle of Montepulciano Bakan Organic wine. A nice evening. The only bad thing is that we were traveling through the area and won't get to return there again soon.
