Went to Roberto's this afternoon. Thought it was pretty good. First day is always hectic, but we thought they did a good job of handling it. Had a terrific waitress (Laurel). Will try the pizza in a few days. Glad to have a new option in our area.

Just my 2 cents we never go to a restaurant the first week it’s opened, in fact we wait a couple of months until the newness wears off. Where we live some of the time in New England there was never a Sonic Drive-in. When they opened one in our town you couldn’t get near the place for months, in fact they had a police detail directing traffic. Fast forward to today and you can pull in anytime there are no longer crowds or even many customers.

Had high expectations finally a good Italian Restaurant especially from a person who actually is from Italy!

It was terribly bland and just one step above hospital food. My question is why? I left 3/4 of the food behind my opinion was told to the owner and left.

I lived in Tuscany... After that, all food in the USA is bland! Probably the most flavorless food anywhere.

Some people are never happy. Forget where you came from and embrace where you are now.

Good point we do embrace the area just not the food. With that said it’s tough to be the BBQ at Oakwood Smoke House. In Ocala is Ipanema Brazilian Steakhouse if you enjoy a real variety of meats all you can eat style in a beautiful atmosphere, it’s one of the better stops around.

Correct, but we're talking real Italian here, not Maine or Florida.
