There is a sense of oldfashioned wholesomeness to this restaurant, as if you are stepping back into the 1960s when service was service, and good food was good food. You wouldn't be surprised to have Marcello Mastroiani and Gina Lollobridgida at the table next to you. We had a copious Saturday lunch after a visit to the Rive market. First... More

Really good traditional Italian restaurant serving excellent food with great service. The artichoke hearts were fabulous and I understand this a house speciality. We also had a very traditional minestrone which kept coming until you have finished the pot. We all had fresh sole either just plain grilled or meunière which was delicious and served with a nice selection of... More

Roberto is still the place for a traditional Italian experience. Service is excellent, the welcome always warm thanks to Marietta, Pierangelo and the entire staff. Love the various pasta as well as the scaloppine al limone which are delicious and the cholocate ice cream unique. So the quality is definitely there priced accordingly :-) Always a pleasure.

Roberto's is known as a quality traditional Italian restaurant, under the same family's management since at least two generations. It is high quality, fairly pricey, but very reliable and with first class service. The wine list is excellent, the tables quite private, can be good for a romantic outing, business or family.

This is where Geneva's Crème De La Crème wines and dines. Apart from a party of 8 ultra-loud Americans the clientele was elegant and soft-spoken. The tournedos (with pepper sauce) was delicious, as was my friend's breaded escalope, all washed down with a Villa Antinori Chianti. Prices were expensive but in keeping with the history, food quality and customer base.

This is a traditional, chic Italian restaurant in Geneva. In a nice relaxing decor, with dark wood paneling, mirrors, artwork and impressive chandeliers, one can enjoy consistently delicious food from various parts of Italy accompanied by a well selected wine repertoire followed by mouthwatering desserts. Try the ossobucco with saffron rice, the signature dish. The service is always impeccable and... More

I had the occasion to again be a guest at Roberto's, a restaurant which has not changed one iota in 50 years. I have been a guest and host maybe 25 times over the last years. The menu is largely unchanged, the waiters and the management too...I think it is run by the daughter of the original Roberto. Highly recommended... More
