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.

First time eating out on Arthur Ave and this restaurant came highly recommended by several people we know. Food was excellent as was the dessert. We had tiramisu and cheesecake. Service was excellent by all staff even beyond our waiter. Other waiters even asked how we were doing and if we needed anything. We had noted on the reservation that it was our anniversary. Though his was not acknowledged while we were there, everything else made up for it.

We were very disappointed with our lunch . We have been to Roberto’s many times and it is always amazing. This time it was like a different restaurant. The food was bland and overcooked.

I will begin having been there before on two other occasions. The food and desert included were excellent. The server we had was a bit rough at the edges especially because we had to very elderly in the group and can’t hear too well and have their ways. Great place both up and down stairs, a gem in the Bronx!!

The food is consistently good. Can get a bit noisy if there a a lot of kids. My husband and I shared an appetizer, a pasta and an entree with a $50 bottle of wine and the bill was over $200 without a tip. $30+ for a small pasta dish is a bit over the edge.

Roberto's is always a homerun! We went for my husband's birthday and delicious as always. This is my husband's favorite restaurant for many years. Grilled Octopus and fennel salad for appetizer, seafood with fusilli and risotto special for dinner, tiramisu and profiteroles for dessert. ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!

The appetizers took quite awhile before they were served but were delicious. Our main entrees were fabulous. The wait staff was excellent. My wife and I have been coming to Roberto’s for years and are never disappointed with the marvelous food.

The food was excellent: interesting dishes that were delicious, fresh, and well-prepared. Authentic Italian food. The service was very good but we had multiple waiters and at times there was duplication of service and at times no service. I recommend they assign a single waiter to a group of tables for greater consistency. Atmosphere was pleasant. Parking was a little difficult. I will definitely return, though--the food was divine.

We will definitely return because all of our past visits to Roberto’s have been wonderful, but our visit last Saturday was disappointing. This probably was just a bad day.

The shell fish in our dish were uneatable; the muscles and clams were like rubber but the shrimp were okay. When I complained to the waiter he made an excuse, said they were fresh and walked away without even an apology much less offering us another food option. The charges for the food remained on the final bill, which we paid because I didn’t want to create a scene.

The cloth napkins shedded lint all over everyone’s pants.

The noise levels were louder than in the past, maybe because we were surrounded by the large crowd at the tables in front and to our side. This was my, not the restaurant’s fault. I should have asked for a table in a better location since we arrived before the large parties and saw how the tables were set for a big crowd.

As I said maybe this was a bad day. We still consider Roberto’s and its Armonk restaurant two of the best and creative Italian restaurants in America Whenever practical we will continue to take visitors to New York to Roberto’s.
