I have lived in Edgewater for years, and drove past the Roberto's II restaurant almost daily, but for some reason had never ventured in. A few years ago when friends of ours said "you mean you LIVE in Edgewater and you never went to

Walking into Roberto's II is like walking back into time. The interior is dark around the bar, and the bartender has worked there since forever. He has the baseball game playing on a small TV behind the bar, as he fills your drink order and makes small talk. Along the walls and on shelves of the restaurant proper, you have signed photographs of celebrities long past who visited this restaurant back in the day. It's all very old school Italian...which makes the menu such a pleasant surprise.

The owner works the dining area, seeing to his customer's pleasure, while his son works magic in the kitchen. The menu is pleasantly modern, and even the more ambitious sounding dishes come out beautifully and are absolutely delicious. You'll enjoy the experience so much, you'll order coffee and dessert just to extend your very pleasant meal.

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough!

The food is great here and the atmosphere is very cozy. You get the feeling like you're at a Soporano's scene. The price is a little upscale but is expected as in most italian restaurants in the area.

The food served here is really delicious. My family and I usually come here for special occasions. Every time we eat here, the service is exceptional.

Amidst so many kudos, I almost hate to submit a dissenting review, but our experience at Roberto's was anything but on par with New York Italian food. It was your typical suburban Italian food, oddly conceived and not of the best quality. The Caesar salad was comprised almost entirely of lettuce stems and the dressing itself completely unremarkable. The shrimp dish was basically not worth eating, the shrimp clearly not fresh if not re-heated (they swore that the shrimp arrived that day - from where remains the question.) My pounded breaded pork chop was covered in tomato and onion in giant chunks that made it hard to eat, and with no sauce, very odd. Potato served on the side, what looked like hash browns - how could you mess up fried potatoes? BLAND. And these were the specials! Each dish 20 some odd dollars so not 'inexpensive.' Both dished were recommended personally by the wine steward AND the waiter. Of course, there are exactly 91 choices on the menu - is there any way a restaurant can make all 91 choices well? You would think at least one of the three courses we ordered would have been good, especially those on the special?s list. Whoops ? that?s right, the cannoli at the end was good. Wine choices also curious and toward the sweet side. Sorry, but this place is lame, and at 9PM on Friday few other patrons, which should tell you something. Too bad as it is conveniently located for us, even if the kitschy atmosphere and tuxedoed waiters are kinda fun.

Pros: Got that whole Blue Eyes thing going on

Cons: Food poorly conceive, and of poor quality

MMM excellent Food !!! I especially enjoyed their remarkable sweet Tomato salad. Wow, they were very Sweet & Delicious, just like garden tomatoes. The waiter told us that they were called "Ugly Tomatoes" purchased from an Italian Store in Fairview, called Dante's...never had such wonderful tomatoes ever in my life. The Tilapia fish was also very tasty, accompanied by a glass of fine Italian wine. What a fine Italian restaurant !

Excellent food, portions & service in a very comfortable & friendly atmosphere. Very reasonable priced menu. There is something for everyone on their menu or daily specials. The choices are difficult. Why you might ask? Because it's all good!! Choices are plentyiful, from seafood to Steaks & Chops. My Favorites are too numerous to list. I've been dinning at Roberto's for at many years & I'd recommend this restaurant highly to all. I always look forward to our next delicious meal at Roberto's!
