Roberto's: "Authentic Italian!" Bronx Restaurant Tip by meganavery

Bronx Restaurants: 39 reviews and 27 photos

Even the Michelin guide couldn't ignore this gem! All pasta is done on the premises and is so fresh and delicious. The waits can be crazy...especially if there is a Yankee's game going on. But it is worth it! The bread is from a bakery around the corner and it's so good. It melts in your mouth with the amazing olive oil and fresh pasta. I do not normally go out to dinner and order pasta but here I make an exception!

Favorite Dish: I cannot choose just one thing! It's all so good. Osso Bucco and the Risotto are great specials. Always have a hard time deciding...

Farfalle ai funghi porcini
Bowties with dried porcini mushrooms, parmigiano, and a touch of cream

Penne alla vodka
Penne in pink vodka sauce with pancetta

Orecchiette con salsiccia e broccoli di rapa
Orecchiette with Italian sausage and broccoli rabe sautéed in garlic and oil

Address: 603 Crescent Avenue Bronx, NY 10458
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Truly little Italy...commonly referred to the "Belmont District" come hungry! The best cannoli's you will EVER have (in the states) and 1/2 the price of the crap you'll get in Manhattan's "little Italy"
