We went for the business lunch. The package including 1 starter, 1 main, and 1 coffee or tea or dessert. We opt to order wine and mocktails for drinks and to have the dessert from the business lunch package. The food was all so good. Good quality, good taste. The waiter was very attentive and helpful. The environment was very good.

Authentic Italian taste. Great service. Order is only taken Inside, at the cash counter. food can be served outside near the seating area. Loved the pizza and make your own salad ud83eudd57. The outdoor seating gives you exactly the same feeling of curb side cafe from Italy.

We made a spontaneous decision to have a late lunch at Roberto’s after realizing we had been hit with an Italian food craving. It was my first time visiting Roberto’s after being recommended it on a few occasions. The restaurant has a lovely view of the burj and a lot of light entering through the big glass windows. We ordered various items, a special shout out to our starter, the Roberto’s pizza which was outstanding! We had the Manzo pasta as a main which was super rich and cheesy, a very comforting dish. For dessert we had the apple pie and ice cream which was light and satisfying without being too sweet/ indulgent. The service was good, staff friendly and ambience sophisticated yet relaxed. The pricing was on the higher side but not outrageous by Dubai standards. A pleasant experience. Thanks, Roberto’s.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Dubai. Although a bit pricy, all the dishes are well prepared and beautifully served. Staff is very welcoming.nThe ambiance is hip. The restaurant is fairly busy both during lunch (official lunches) and dinner.nExcellent place for dates and celebrating anniversaries. If you are lucky you might spot a celebrity there.

Fancy Italian restaurant! I tried an Italian beer. It was nice. The interiors are good. They have seating outside as well. Service is fine. I didn't try the food. But the menu caters to pastas,salads etc

I rarely return to a restaurant when on holiday as I love exploring but their octopus alone was worth going back the second time. Food was amazing. Service was one of the best in all Dubai. Attentive, tailored and friendly but perfect balance not to be suffocating. Our waitress Sayad was absolutely wonderful. She even showed us the way home and fixed my ice coffee just the way I loved it! Truly recommend this place.

Good as a whole. Gets busy, so you may want to book in advance. Prices are on the high side, so expense account helps. Good selection of cigars. Good services.

Beautiful restaurant and lovely staff. There is a smoking area and a non-smoking area. We donu2019t smoke so we wanted to sit in the non-smoking area, but it was extremely cold there because of the AC, so we had to move. Food was good, but it wasnu2019t special enough for the price.

Fantastic decor, great view on downtown, yummy Saturday brunch with delicious food, drinks and a live singer! Desserts were really tasty. In general good service, except for some waiter/waitresses who would really benefit from a proper table service training (eg: on which side to put cutlery, from which side serve the food, etc.). We had to wait a long time to get even water (my husband ended up going to the bar to get a bottle) and asked several waiters to get our bill (note: the restaurant was not even half full). Those little details make such a difference if your goal is to be the best Italian restaurant in the city. On another note: really did not appreciate guests from other tables standing and hovering around our table and smoking cigarettes. The smoke and smell of cigarettes and being bumped into by other people while trying to enjoy delicious food, it was too much. There should be more space between tables, the restaurant should enforce people sitting down while eating, and there should be smoking/ non-smoking sections. Finally: yes, at brunch time, the music (DJ / singer) is extremely loud. I could not hear what my immediate neighbors were saying. We had to shout to hear each other, shout to the waiters (or they would get super close to your face so they could hear you… not great in Covid times). At the end of the brunch, we ended up with sore throats from shouting and ringing in our ears, just like as we’ve been to a rock concert!

Now this is a very nice dining experience in the financial district.nnRoberto's os famous with its multiple experiences for the visitors.nnThe first experience,nThe indoor dining experience is great for business meetings/ dates and ... etc.nOne can find extremely well done Italian food with very professional staff and great menu that would serve a lot of different taste.nYou will definitely find what you want.nThe atmosphere is more of relaxed but you can easily hear the loud music from other areas.nnThe second experience,nThe indoor dining experience with more casual setup and high/ loud music and more of clubbing experience.nThe atmosphere and music is nice, and the vibes are high.nnThe third experience,nThe outdoor area which is adjacent to the clubbing area.nVery good location to be in winter with great weather and very nice view to the financial district.nnThe crowd coming coming to Roberto's are businessmen, corporate executives and high community people.nnIt is not easy to find reservations at Roberto's, so you might be there in reservation time.nnAs stated before, the overall food experience is amazing, I really loved it.nnThe staff were nice and friendly, yet professional and organized.nnI will definitely visit Roberto's every time I am visiting Dubai, and I recommend it to whoever looking for a great dining experience with a partner and/or casual business meeting.

Atmosphere was amazing,service quality was average and food presentation was extremely poor, Taste was average and staff knowledge and quality poor again. So call manage need a lesson in treating all guest equal leaving the skin color a side. Will never recommend.

Amazing service, Ambiance and food. Everything about this experience was lovely. Highly recommend for a date night or a dinner out with friends/colleagues. The place has a lively energy but still makes you feel posh..Jeans are fine but dress up!

Most delicious food.nIf you want your guests to have enjoyable tasty times. Take them to Roberto's ristorante.. it's the most luxurious spacious place.nOh and not to forget the pleasant young energetic team who served every dish with a smile to each one of us on the table. Can you believe that every dish we ordered they split it on each one of us??? Wow. That's a luxury service.

The ambience is full of life. Elegant in it's setting, fine dining it is. It's a very busy outlet especially on the weekend. If you are driving to the venue, there is a free valet option available for 2-3 hours I think. The food and drinks are delish and well presented. Make sure to try their cocktails and their appetizers and do your reservation in advance.

After reading the previous and not very flattering comments, I want to dispel them. It is not fair or decent to leave non-constructive criticism. Just because it was expensive to you. Well, don't go to expensive restaurants, than! The restaurant is luxurious! Service is perfect! It couldn't be better. The food is real Italian !! I am telling you as an expert on Italian cuisine, besides, we were here with my Italian friend, who knows exactly what delicious Italian food is. They have a delicious dessert. They have octopuses that melt in their mouths. Their pasta is sheer aesthetic and gastronomic delight.nI believe that Google should block this kind of non-constructive comments that clog up space and discredit this platform.
