Buzzing with urban-farming fund-raisers, local brewers pouring their ales and food-world luminaries fresh off Heritage Radio interviews, this sprawling hangout has become the unofficial meeting place for Brooklyn's sustainable-food movement. Opened in 2008 by Chris Parachini, Brandon Hoy and Carlo Mirarchi, Roberta's features its own rooftop garden, a food-focused Internet-radio station and a kitchen that turns out excellent, locally sourced dishes, such as delicate bibb lettuce with red-cherry vinaigrette or linguine carbonara made with lamb pancetta. It also doesn't hurt that the pizzas—like the Cheesus Christ, topped with mozzarella, Taleggio, Parmesan, black pepper and cream—are among the borough's best.

Roberta's is molto bene. Honestly, I love going in the winter best because there is a cozy fire out back. It's a pretty hipster place, and the layout is really interesting. They have four different spots, including the main room, separate dining room, and outdoor space and a tent (where the fire is!). Order a hot toddy in the outdoor tent in the wintertime, and you will be a happy, cozy camper. The food is top-notch; order anything, it will be good. I last ate stracciatella (a soupy mix of egg and cheese) with grilled bread and shared a pizza with a friend. Take your parents to Roberta's, take your friends, take anyone. They will all love it.


Roberta's is amazing! I've gone here on several occasions. I swear this place convinced me that Brooklyn was home for me. The last time I went though was exceptional. We did have to wait an hour. It's long, but it was well worth the wait.

My friend and I got the ribs just like everyone else that evening. And, let me just say that they were Great. I seriously considered coming back for them the following day but decided against it because...well summer and working on my European figure. 

We also ordered the bread and butter which was perfection. Also a great remedy for those experiencing hang overs... We also ordered the original pizza with sausage and had the R.P.S. for dessert.

Is it the best pizza in NY? I honestly don't know. But it was damn good and worth every single dime.
