Excellent service and food! However, what really makes this place is the service. The staff are friendly, welcoming and make sure you have a great visit. Please give them a try!

Just returned from my daugther's 12th birthday party meal at Robertos. Everyone had a brilliant time. Food was lovely Pizza's and garlic breads were delicious. Last year we paid a fortune in another restaurant on ocean plaza, the party children took forever to pick their meals, then barely ate any and to top it all the service was so slow... More

This is a proper Italian restaurant, catering for families, couples, parties etc. The service is courteous and efficient, the food is special. The lasagne, penne arabiata and canneloni are superb. The Chardonnay could be better, but overall a great place to eat.

Visited on a Wednesday night for a quick bite to eat before visiting the cinema. Seated quickly but only 2 other parties and a few couples. Waited about 5-10 minutes for drinks orders, then we were told the waiter would be back to take food orders in "just a minute". While waiting a further 20 minutes, the chef was working... More

Wow! well we clearly didn't live up to your expectations. Sad we weren't made aware of your disappointment though - maybe we could have remedied it? Certainly our food is fresh, it's delicate and not overseasoned with sugars, dried herbs and salt although quite unlike packaged food as some may prefer. More

We decided to support the independent Italian diner rather than the well known pizza chain across the road for take out pizza and coffee. The pizza was clearly not homemade but was decent enough however we found a thick black hair when we were 2 slices in. Yuck! The coffee was not proper Italian barista coffee but weak flavoured hot...

We are really quite puzzled by your review... Our chefs are all Italian and our Pizza Chef is bald... Our dough is freshly made on the premises, every morning... Our Pizzas are freshly rolled out and topped to the customers order... (certainly not frozen!) Our coffee is Italian Illy - made by Barista trained staff... and we're especially puzzled because...

Family run restaurant serving Italian food in addition to Burgers, Steaks, Fish etc. Our restaurant has been on Ocean Plaza for over twelve years, and we pride ourselves on being able to compete with the 'big boys' on this Branded-Commercial Leisure Site. Obviously sometimes this can bring it's issues - such as customers expecting fast food - we can never compete with the brands on speed as our food is not pre-packaged and frozen! Ocean Plaza offers free parking for customers and is home to an impressive multi-screen Vue Cinema, a 20 Lane Bowling Alley with Laser experience, a DW state of the art Fitness Club and a 95 bedroom Premier Travel Inn - which faces our restaurant.
