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.

Seriously… You can't go wrong with Roberta's. I used to come here and sit at the bar, order a personal pizza and watch basketball. Now I live a tiny but further, which warrants delivery. They take a solid 45 min-hour to deliver, but that's pretty much expected in Bushwick now. I don't do all the fancy toppings now that I'm a vegetarian; just stick to my delicious margherita! Last time I ordered, I was ordering dinner for me and my mom, so figured we'd need something more than just the pizza. I went with the Romaine (under Market/Garden). I was hesitant because this really just sounds like a super plain, overpriced bowl of leaves. BUT I stand corrected. It was really good and surprisingly filling (to go with the pizza we shared).
Definitely the best pizza place in Bushwick. Try to go in summer - grab a spot outside in the courtyard, and get a couple of pizzas from the Takeaway section of Roberta's. The toppings are incredibly fresh, and flavors are delicious.
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.
