    The pizza is good. My favorite is the Involto pizza (inverse, kinda like a calzone, but a pizza!). Heavy for many, but so so good. Next time I'll try other dinner/lunch options.

    The pizza was amazing. Also the interior is perfect. Great for a dinner with a friend. A little bit noisy but great atmosphere.

    Bee sting is the best! Garlic knots are good too /m- they have the flaky texture of a croissant

    The pizza is consistently amazing. I know they make other food as well, but stick to the pizza and you won't be disappointed. They just opened a take-out operation a few doors down

    Some of the best pizza around. Beastmaster will be the only thing you need to eat all day, but don't let that stop you from trying the combo plate as well.

    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!

    Pizza is some of the best in NYC. Grab a slushy cocktail or enjoy a beer--outdoors is more fun than outdoor seating, but only available in the summer.

    Bee Sting Pizza. It's not on the menu, but it's amazing. Listen to all the other tips and do the Bee Sting. Honey and chilli is an amazing combo.

    I love everything they do here: salads, pasta & pizza, great craft beer list. Brunch menu only: double cheeseburger, a beefy, textural delight, a Burger Joint style elevated backyard burger.

    If you like burgers, make the trek for lunch, it's the best in the city for the $. Consistently some of the best refined food in the city that you can go to w/ anyone.

    Cute patio at back, wood-burning oven pizza is great. Order the Good Girl if you love Kale. Coriander and Marshmallow fluff gelato - yum! Also the fresh made mint lemonade. Tasty!

    Gets crazy busy and there's always a line, but it's well worth the wait - probably my favorite pizza joint in Brooklyn. Highly recommend the Little Stinker.

    If the restaurant is super packed, just head out back, order take out + a cocktail and enjoy the garden. Such delicious pizza it's worth the wait!

    I went to their location at the urban space, the pizza was ok but for the price it could be better. If you got try it, go for the bee sting. Has some honey on it to give you the sweet side.

    7/7/14 - Pizza amazing. Calzone amazing. Red wine (2 in the middle) was the worst wine we have ever had, Wine was likely $8 bottles retail. Also no PORK dishes?? What's happening??

    you don't have to believe the hype, but it really is a great spot. head out back and grab a drink—the wait for a table is usually way long, and the bar inside is usually overcrowded.

    The working man = red sauce, mozzarella, and basil on a thick chewy piece of focaccia for $3. On top of that, they're super friendly and take credit cards, so I'm sold

    This iconic Bushwick pizza joint is extremely popular. There's a take away Roberta's down the block. The Famous Original was good, but pricey at $14 for the size. I'll return to sit down next tine.

    The Dennis original pizza hits the spot. Great dough, great sauce, great cheese. Be prepared for a long wait to be seated, especially on the weekend.

    Loong waiting list for dinner. More than two hours, even on mondays! Tried here two times, and give up. Doesn't matter, less than 30min on subway L-A you reach Grimaldi's or Julianna's. Fughedaboudit!

    Anchovies used on pizza should be filleted, salt-cured and stored in olive oil. Roberta's anchovies, instead, where from a marinade (with vinegar and/or lemon): sour flavor and grayish/white color.

    The Famous Original and Margherita Pizzas are excellent. Have the Margherita with extra basil. I also like adding a little Calabrian chili oil

    Great pizza. Big outdoor area! You can get the pizza to go and bring outside rather than waiting for a table.

    all the pizzas are delicious but the sleeper dish is the romaine salad with candied walnuts, some mint, and pecorino. the dressing is smooth and a little garlic-y, but not thick. SO GOOD!

    Great atmosphere with outdoor seating in the summer. Try the pizza with capers, jalapeños, and sausage. Good list of craft beers as well.

    Definitely not your neighborhood pizzeria, but play around with the topping options. The speck is outstanding and the cheese is unreal. Definitely order 2 pies!

    Back for brunch. Scrambled eggs really delicious, but pricy for portion. Bacon, by contrast, is a ~steak portion. Good, not necessarily a "must have."

    So much to say! Great beer selection, pizzas, charcuterie. Non descript on the outside, very cool on the inside. Worth the trip to Bushwick!

    In four visits, Roberta's kept rocking a great pizza. Off the beaten path for many New Yorkers, but a must to try for the uninitiated.

    Margherita is really good! not really traditional Italian pizza flavours! The take out section is really slow and busy...normally takes about 30 min to 1h to get your pizza!

    Some things don’t change and Roberta’s is a Bushwick must. Grab pizza at the take-away / bakery and sit outside.

    Know what you like? If your server is nice, you can order from the (vastly different) lunch menu during dinner anyways. The Bee Sting is still just as delicious at night.

    We especially dug the bruschetti of lardo and ramps, and a deceptively simple dish of perfectly grilled asparagus garnished with pecorino and ham. And it's BYOB! Read more

    In summer service extends to a hip patio tiki bar. Roberta's is wildly popular, so either come early or try for a table at lunch or brunch, which isn't as hectic. Read more

    Try the non-pizza items on the menu too! Kale sea salad, pasta with clams, and scallops and peach, are all delish! And come outside rush hours ;)

    Did you have the chef's secret tasting menu from Roberta's? Yes I did, and the month long wait was worth it because the carrots they grow on the rooftop garden there are just so sweet.

    Pizza - fantastic of course. Beer selection? Also on point. But the weekday lunchtime burger? Divine.

    The bee pizza was too spicy, but I'm excited to come back and try another pie. Crust is thin and delicious. Ingredients are wide-ranging and exciting.

    From pizza made with ingredients from their rooftop garden to super fun summertime parties, there are many reasons that make this pizza joint a favorite of Community Manager Kimiko.

    There’s a reason we spotted Bill Clinton at this Brooklyn hotspot- a rustic, and inviting restaurant you would never know exists in Bushwick. Order the Fugazetta and it will be the hit of the table.
