You're missing out if you're only here for the pizza. Their pizza is amazing, BUT everything else on their menu is delish, especially their daily special. So lucky we live in the hood, it's the best!
Amazing pizza and atmosphere! The wait staff is extremely sweet and attentive. Sometimes there is a wait, but they will text you when your table is ready so I always just hang out by the bar.
Really good personal pizza And a full Italian menu. In the upcoming bushwick hipster movement. Outside eating and friendly staff. Small bar with a nice wine list and craft beer. Fairly priced too.
Rough and gritty. The pizza here is like Brooklyn. Flavorful and rough around the edges. If queue at main dining is too long, head a few doors down to the take away. There are seatings outside too.
Consistently amazing pizza. Especially love any with greens eg the green and white, the good girl (although this has unfortunately been missing from the menu of late). Great vibe, cool place.
Last time my parents were here I took them to Roberta’s for Brunch. It is a great place to go on the weekend and enjoy the delicious pizzas! Especially the spicy and sweet Bee Sting.
This iconic Bushwick pizza joint is extremely popular. There's a take away Roberta's down the block. The Famous Original was good, but pricey at $14 for the size. I'll return to sit down next tine.
It's common sense to go for the pizza (bee sting w/ an egg on top) but order the smoked ribs to start then dip your pizza crusts in the remaining honey vinegar/togarashi dressing. Touch me.
In the morning drop by the take-out place; coffee is only OK, but their 'morning bun' is a superb savoury invention. Like a croissant swirl with a blue cheese and mushroom filling...!
1. Arrive early 2. Order the off-the-menu bee sting pizza (honey, sopressata, chili flakes) 3. Try a pasta and an entrée (it's not only about the pizza here) 4. Chill at the bar in the tent outback.
For first timers, don't expect a good looking place from the outside, just go in, have a seat and order a pizza. Nice atmosphere, awesome staff and interesting combinations.
Get there early to put your name down & head to Pine Box Shop while you wait. Request the bee sting & the axel Rosenberg they are musts! Chessus Christ is also great, make sure to get it with honey.
Best come with 4 people or more so you can try as many different pizza as you can! So good I don't mind taking it to go to skip the line and eating it in my car.
Been eating the pizza at the Mad Sq food tents and loving it for years. And then I bit the bullet and visited their restaurant in Williamsburg... and my respect level for them tripled. Def top 5 NYC.
4 glasses of the cheapest wine on the list + 2 vegetables starters + 1 pizza = 87usd for 2 persons. has become a tourists and locals trap. it happens. avoid. go to paulie gee's all life long.
This Bushwick spot has become a scene for good reason. Known mostly for pizza, get a side of roasted smashed potatoes with bacon, maple syrup and hot sauce. Incredible. Sunday is Tiki Disco party day!
Amongst my fave pie joints in NYC! A perfectly thinner crust than most - Margherita w/ red onion & soppresata had tasty, sweet sauce & held up perfectly! Pizzas taste great on own w/o chili oil.
Order the Bee Sting! Thin crust with mozzarella and tomato sauce topped with spicy soppressata, chili flakes, & HONEY! It's absolutely delicious. Keep in mind, it's not on the menu so remember to ask!
Dinner before heading home. My friend loved the meatball sub. Their style of fries was so airy and delicious. Calamari was on point. And of course, the pizza -has the "Cheesus Christ" -LAWD yes.
Good atmosphere. Good pizza too. Although a little pricey for a 10 inch pie. Definitely worth the trip. The smells alone will make you feel like home. Keep it simple and you won't regret it. Enjoy.
"Spaghetti alla chitarra ...the pizza is amazing, ...the orecchiette with pig tail ragu, ’nduja, and Pecorino Pepato; duck prosciutto; and spaghetti alla chitarra with broccoli rabe and Bianco Sardo."
There’s a reason we spotted Bill Clinton at this Brooklyn hotspot- a rustic, and inviting restaurant you would never know exists in Bushwick. Order the Fugazetta and it will be the hit of the table.
Anchovies used on pizza should be filleted, salt-cured and stored in olive oil. Roberta's anchovies, instead, where from a marinade (with vinegar and/or lemon): sour flavor and grayish/white color.
The green and white pizza is fantastic, as well as their house salad. Simple and perfect. Michelada's outside area my favorite cocktail at this place... Go early in the evening as it is always packed.
The rooftop garden of this funky spot produces tomatoes, brussels sprouts, peppers, carrots, and heirloom lettuce—much of which finds its way onto brick-oven pizzas and other Italian-inspired dishes.
The pizzas are obviously great, but the (unsung) true stars are the veggie, pasta and kitchen dishes. Also a surprisingly great pastry program. The stracciatella w grilled bread is a must.
The Wagyu steak is some of the most tender melt-in-your-mouth meat I've ever tried. Don't fall for thinking Roberta's is just about pizza. You must start your meal with the appetizer of beets.
The hype is so real. Cornmeal pancakes were amazing. So was the breakfast pizza, whose crust somehow never got soggy even with a soupy cheesy saucey mess atop it.
Sit at the inside bar if there's room. You avoid the wait, and if you've put your name in, you can order at the bar and transfer over to your table when's its ready. Also, great bartenders.
Roberta’s pizzas are all about pairing fresh and local ingredients and are cooked to perfection. Seasonal pizzas always being added to the menu, so you will keep coming back for something new.
Some of the best pizza in NY. Phenomenal pizza and food. Bee Sting is original and I wish I thought of it. Chili oil, honey, soppresata...muah!! Also get the margarita or original.
If you can make it here for lunch, get the cheeseburger. The best dry-aged burger in the city and the accompanying fried fingerling potatoes are off the hook. Only available M-F.
Loong waiting list for dinner. More than two hours, even on mondays! Tried here two times, and give up. Doesn't matter, less than 30min on subway L-A you reach Grimaldi's or Julianna's. Fughedaboudit!
Pizza, of course, but it's the charcuterie (n'duja, wagyu carpaccio) and wacky composed vegetable dishes (sweet potatoes, boudin noir, nasturtium) that make me want to eat here every week.
With so many places it's about looking cute; at Roberta's it's by far about the food. The pizza is why you probably went, but everything is GOOD. (if they have the pork belly biscuit, please get it)

cute up and coming spot.. pizza boys could use a lesson or two about how to regulate the temp of the DIY wood oven. despite the technical learning curve very tasty and worth the desperate hipsters
7/7/14 - Pizza amazing. Calzone amazing. Red wine (2 in the middle) was the worst wine we have ever had, Wine was likely $8 bottles retail. Also no PORK dishes?? What's happening??
