It’s busy for a reason. Even on a standard midweek night, Roberto’s is bustling with food fans, and there’s a good reason for that – its menu is the epitome of fine Italian dining, with dishes prepared by one of the best Italian chefs in the business.

Look out for the letter ‘S’. Everything on the menu looks great, but to help you narrow down your choices, the ‘S’ reveals the restaurant’s signature dishes. These meals contain intriguing takes on Italian fare that you won’t want to miss out on. 

Share your starters. Reasonably large plates such as the Roberto’s crispy dough base topped with beef carpaccio or fritto – golden-fried calamari, prawns and courgettes, served with a spicy tomato sauce and a stunning aioli dip, are perfect for two.

Make space for the mains. You’ll want to savour every last crumb of your main dish, whatever you choose. The signature seafood dishes shine here – try the outstanding Canadian lobster fettuccine or the branzino grilled sea bass. 

Romance can flourish at Roberto’s. This is a perfect venue for that special meal with your significant other. Treat them to a meal here for a satisfying taste of la dolce vita.
