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.

It's not a traditional pie, but it's a memorable one. Go for the bee sting pizza and don't look back. So good and so worth the hype!
Visited Roberta's on a 70 degree day in the dead of winter & had a great time. You can leave you name in the wait list, but on this sunny winter day all we wanted was to soak up the sun so we placed orders for take out, walked around the neighborhood checking out the street art & came back just in time to pick up the food. The patio was open & packed!! The music was great & kept the vibe relaxed. Perfect for the sunny day. The lines for drinks were long as there were only 2 bartenders. It they did their best to get the line moving quickly. It was an amazing mixed crowd. Families, girls brunching & guys chilling. Recommend that while one gets the food to have someone else keep an eye out for seats. The original pizza is great!!! Chili infused olive oil gave an already great pizza a little kick. Perfectly paired with a beer with either cocktails the bar has to offer.
I love my experience at Roberta's and try to fit it into every trip I take to NYC. Everything here is amazing and delicious my favorite being the bee sting pie! Sweet & savory in one bite :) I love that they have the bar in the back to accommodate those who have to wait for a long time. Looking forward to returning!
The picture used is fraudulent/false advertisement and should be removed I actually went there thinking that they served what was pictured no such luck I walked out in disappointment
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.
This is Definitely one of my top Pizza places to go to. I love their Margarita pizza the flavors are just so good and the mozzarella is so fresh you can taste it. I LOVE this Pizza. I have also had the other items on their menu but this is my favorite and I can eat it over and over again. Super Good!! I am in love with this pizza.
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.
