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.

    Top-notch Italian, diverse offerings, both innovative and traditional, not "just red sauce Italian-American" (though there is nothing wrong with that). Broad wine offerings. Reasonably priced. Dishes are large enough to share, so try something that's not familiar.

    My first time visiting Roberto's. The reservations were for 1pm and the restaurant was close to full. The service was impeccable. The timing of the wait staff was extremely quick, attentive and very courteous. The food was delicious. I rate the noise level a little high...but it was 1pm & the restaurant was close to full. Noise should be expected. I enjoyed my dining experience in this restaurant and WILL BE RETURNING. Thanks You!

    I have been going to robertos since they first opened in their old location. Always enjoyed the food and service. Past two times it has gotten increasingly worse. The Albanian waiters are jerks. We sit down and he tells us read the board for the specials. The food was served cold every course, lacked seasoning and I had to ask for water multiple times and t Not once sis they pour me my wine. So sad that this gem has been ruined by poor service and downright laziness

    Despite a 645 reservation, we waited about 30 minutes for a table. Salad was great; entrees were warm not hot; vegetable had to be sent back because it was cold. Overall, I’d say it was good, not great.

    This is probably a good restaurant if you order the right things. My fennel on a bed of greens salad seemed to lack dressing, could have used more fennel and omitted the tomatoes. My husband and I both ordered the rabbit. I always find rabbit delicious and was looking forward to it. This proved to be the worst rabbit I have ever had. Each rabbit was so tough we could hardly cut it with a steak knife. We had to leave a lot on our plate. To their credit, they charged us for only one.

    I’d been to Roberto’s before the pandemic with a restaurateur friend, and it was fantastic. Now almost three years later, in town for a Fordham tour, I took my son. We both loved it. He liked it so much, Fordham’s now at the top of his list. We sat on the sidewalk/street. The waiters were great. Had the steamed clams and mussels in white wine and garlic as an appetizer. Absolutely fantastic. The veal scallopini with thinly-sliced potatoes and mushrooms were excellent, as was the flank steak with tomatoes, red onions and arugula salad. Go. You won’t be disappointed.

    Roberto remains not only my favorite restaurant in the Arthur Avenue neighborhood, but my favorite authentic Italian restaurant in the U.S. Chef Roberto's creations are always evolving. He's always trying new ingredients and combinations. Be sure to order off the white board! On this trip one memorable dish we had was fig ravioli with prosciutto and ricotta in butter and sage sauce. Outstanding. This is real Italian cooking -- fresh ingredients in creative recipes yet true to tradition.

    We had not been to Roberto’s for a while and the food was good, not great, and very expensive. The service was excellent and we enjoyed ourselves but probably won’t return anytime soon since we can eat elsewhere for less with similar or better quality food.

    All, good the server cleared the food before we were done, I personally think everyone at the table should be done, the last person eating should not eat alone. That is just basic table service. I know I am picky but I was trained to serve wine, they could use a lesson... if they really want Butler service... but the food was good...

    A meal at Roberto’s is always outstanding. The menu has unique combinations of flavors. Papardelle with smoked duck breast for example. The soft shell crab was not in the usual garlic sauce so that the mild flavor was able to be appreciated. We were adventurous and tried a Calabrian red which was very good. And the service was impeccable. The only slight negative was that the large party at the adjacent table was very loud.
