    The best pizza pizza in NYC I have eaten so far. Brick oven + ingredients + service + the hip atmosphere makes this restaurant special. Try Li'l Stinker and Margherita pizzas 🍕

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Carlo Mirarchi is the longtime culinary maestro here, sending out duck prosciutto whose fat rivals Kobe in its ability to melt at room temperature, and whose flesh matches dry-aged beef in its flavor. Read more

    We tried the Bee Sting which was off the menu & it was really, really, seriously good. The place has a nice, easy vibe and as a tourist it gave me a homey feel. Art grafitti outside are ig worthy too!

    All the pizzas are legit, but the pastas are not to miss, either. Anything with bucatini will be killer. Be sure to order at least one Bee Sting pie (not on the menu, but always available).

    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

    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!

    After getting stung by the tremendous wait a few times (it's worth it), figured out the bar at the back was open seating. Sweetbreads, Brussels sprouts with apples & The Beastmaster (🍕) were great!

    The bee sting. Heaven. You pick up to go at a different entrance than the restaurant.

    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 pizzas are excellent! In warm days, go to the takeout counter (next door down the street), order the pizzas to go (same menu) and take them to their outdoor picnic area, can't beat that!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Best hipster-watching in the WHOLE UNIVERSE!! Oh, pizzas are excellent, too. Pastas are tasty, but portions microscopic. If you're po' stick to the pies (inc $5 Working Man slice at lunch).

    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.

    Holy... While I highly recommend the beesting pizza - you have to get a Roberta's sticky bun, which surprisingly no one talks about. Blows Flour Bakery's out of the water (sorry Boston).

    Have literally never had a bad experience here at the outside bar/shared picnic table area. You order from pizza takeout next door (THE BEE STING) it's SO good and SO fun.

    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.

    They have a pizza here with honey that is not on the menu and its really amazing. All of the other stuff on the menu is also really really good. Get a couple pizzas and share, you'll enjoy yourself.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Don't miss out on their bread pudding as well! It's all sorts of crazy and the black sesame ice cream is seriously good. Btw It's not an overwhelmingly sweet dessert.

    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.

    Love this place! I live in the hood & brought my parents here. They loved the bar in back, and the pizza is all DELICIOUS. Service can be spotty, but overall is a great spot! Long wait times, beware!
