Roberta's is 261 Moore St Brooklyn,NY, near the Morgan stop on the L Train.
I was expecting an exterior that exuded Italian design.
Did not get that. I actually had a deja vu from my mnemonic apparatus, stemming from Williamsburg Brooklyn in 1998.
Pizza was good. The dough was so very flavorful, and delicious, as were the toppings.
The ribs were sweet. I would have preferred nothing close to sweet. They were coated with good portion of meat. Other guests at my table found them quite good, really good. I am not a rib enthusiast.
The mussels may have been lacking, but not quite sure what.
I would have loved Peroni or Moretti, or even the Greek Alfa (to keep it Mediterranean).
The biggest problem with this place is the myth of Craft American Beer. That was all they had for beer.
Sure, its beer, but the craft results in missing good taste.
I do not know if Roberta is implying Italian or Spanish, or even if she exists as a person associated with the establishment. Seeing that pizza is the main fare, many associate this with Italy. That is usually the case, unless it comes in a box, then Budweiser or Coors, or ones favored US Craft Beer would be expected to be permissible. In a restaurant with such a refined taste of their pizza, a proper beer would have been good. Peroni would be the preferred. Greek beers also go well with pizza.
