This was our second visit, and again we appreciated that Da Roberto is just a few steps away from the train station. We were warmly welcomed, even though it was very early for lunch (11:45, I think). They stowed our baggage and seated us at a comfortable table near the buffet bar. The buffet antipasti was perfect for both my... More

Nice place, well decorated, close to the railway station. Typical Italian food, typical Swiss prices. Attentive staff, quick service.

Nice place to eat real Italian food. The surrounding is a bit weird, close to the railway station and the typical "businesses" you usually find in the neighborhood of a railway station... But once you are inside, you forget about it. We experienced a warm welcome and a friendly service. The food was excellent.

I called to book a table and it was told me that it was fully booked but I could get a seat at the bar. However, when we arrived, we were immediately given a table. Good service and unexpected quality food (I had fish!) completed by a good Italian wine. Thank you for a good evening.

A wonderful place for an authentic Italian treat. The decor is warm and inviting, the seating comfortable and the staff very helpful, welcoming and concerned. I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.

Service good verging on ingratiating. Salad excellent and antipasti would also be good. But main courses disappointing. Cannelloni undersized and pizza shrunken looking and dry

The restaurant is an Italian restaurant. The menu is Italian as well and the owner and staff very friendly. The menu has many Italian dishes adapted to German or Swiss German tastes. If you come from Italy there is a slight difference and you may be deceived. The pizza has room for improvement. It is perfectly round and the Parmesan... More

We recently went for lunch at the restaurant Da Rpberto. The service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was full, and we were glad that we had a reservation. We took the business lunch (soup, main and dessert) and were very happy. We will come back again!

At previous (lunchtime) visit I enjoyed the excellent Antipasti buffet (plenty of veggie choices). In the evening, the service was equally good but main courses were disappointing: the canneloni, though tasty, didn't really constitute a full portion for an adult (more a starter, but priced as main), and my partner's Pizza was also undersized and too dry - needed much...

Welcoming atmosphere, very attentive staff, perhaps even too attentive. Always a reasonably priced choice for wine of the month 7.50SFR for 200ml: this is Switzerland. Cold buffet for appetisers with massive choice. 3 or 4 pasta, 3 risotto, 6 or so meat entrees , 10 pizza choices. Pleasant surroundings, cosy even on the most bitter evenings. Do not be put... More
