    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

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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...!

    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.

    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 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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
