    Our ideal order always involves a pizza (try the off-menu but always-available Bee Sting: spicy soppressata and honey), some salumi, a salad, some pasta, and a dry-aged meat (beef or duck). Read more

    Pizzas are delivered fresh and fast. The Bee Sting pizza wasn't on the menu but they were more than happy to make it for us - perfect combo of sweet from the honey and salty spice from the Sopressata.

    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!

    It’s worth the few extra stops on the L train (and the wait once you get there) for some of the best wood-fired pizzas and good rustic Italian (including veggies from their very own co-op garden). Read more

    The only exception to Roberta's no-reservation policy is for parties of 10 to 16. Dinner menus start at $32 and are created family-style, allowing guests to choose from Roberta's pizza and starters. Read more

    Calling it a pizzeria doesn’t accurately express Roberta’s virtuosity; under the direction of chef Carlo Mirarchi, the restaurant has defied easy categorization since opening in 2008. Read more

    ALL CAPS; This alluring elixir evokes the pristine, pine-imbued essence of springtime in the high Alps. Muddled rosemary & Zirbenz, an aromatic Swiss liqueur — play with spicy American rye. Read more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    you can't go wrong with any pizza here. All fresh ingredients. Worth the 1-2 hour wait if youve never been. Grab a drink in the backyard while you wait or head around the corner to pine box rock shop.

    Recommended pizza: Famous Original. One of my favourite places to eat in New York, this Brooklyn institution oozes hipster chic. Pizzas are chewy, simple, no overkill of ingredients Read more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If you're looking for intense, funky minerality, the cheeseburger is actually a bargain at $16, especially when you consider that it comes with crispy potatoes and a buttery roll made in-house. Read more

    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.

    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...!

    The minimalist cheeseburger creation at this Bushwick game changer is only served at lunch Monday through Friday. But if you’re up for the daytime slog, you’ll be rewarded: A steal at $16. (CP) Read more

    Wow...the hype is well deserved. The pizza is well worth the wait. The smart move is to go early on Sunday for their "Sunday Brunch". You can avoid the line and enjoy some specials.

    Using Neapolitan-style pizza a starting point, the Roberta's pizzaioli top their pies with exceptional homemade mozzarella, house-cured meats, and locally-grown vegetables. Read more

    Awesome pizzas but make sure you get the stracciatella-divine. Long wait for a table and got forgotten about the bar but nice bar staff sat us down there for full menu.

    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.

    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.

    Roberta's is the epicenter of the modern Brooklyn food scene. The pizzas are fantastic, but the restaurant really flexes its muscles with the vegetable dishes. Read more

    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 well known secret of Brooklyn. Started as a piazza place (they do have the best pizza in NY) but the key is the food - innovative different and oh so tasty. A must.

    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!

    While pizza is the obvious choice, brunch dishes -- like cornmeal pancakes and various takes on hash -- are also worth a special trip. Read more

    If the Carrots with Grilled Mussels & Lime are on the menu, order them right away. Seriously, they might even be better than the pizza (which, incidentally, is among the best ever).

    The beef shank was to die for and the Caesar with candied walnuts is always good. Obviously pizza is a must, and my fav is the lamb of God -- you really can't go wrong!

    Cheese stracciatella is incredible, ~Cheesus Christ pizza is a tasty option for vegetarians. The place is usually crowded, but is worth it! Beautiful people, outdoor space and music.

    Order from the takeout local, next to the restaurant entrance, and then take your pizza to the patio. When I went, there were a lot of tables available there and it's nicer and breezier than inside.

    I am lactose intolerant and pizza is not my thing but still I love this place for the bacon soup. My mouth is watering just to think about it. They make a great bread also

    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.

    Some of the city's top pizza, Neapolitan in spirit but New York in execution. The restaurant's other items are also very strong, including great bread and burgers.

    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.

    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.

    I would come here everyday and try all the pizzas if it was closer. But if you're only here once, you have to get the Bee Sting!

    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.

    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!
