Service good verging on ingratiating. Salad excellent and antipasti would also be good. But main courses disappointing. Cannelloni undersized and pizza shrunken looking and dry

The restaurant is an Italian restaurant. The menu is Italian as well and the owner and staff very friendly. The menu has many Italian dishes adapted to German or Swiss German tastes. If you come from Italy there is a slight difference and you may be deceived. The pizza has room for improvement. It is perfectly round and the Parmesan... More

We recently went for lunch at the restaurant Da Rpberto. The service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was full, and we were glad that we had a reservation. We took the business lunch (soup, main and dessert) and were very happy. We will come back again!

At previous (lunchtime) visit I enjoyed the excellent Antipasti buffet (plenty of veggie choices). In the evening, the service was equally good but main courses were disappointing: the canneloni, though tasty, didn't really constitute a full portion for an adult (more a starter, but priced as main), and my partner's Pizza was also undersized and too dry - needed much...

Welcoming atmosphere, very attentive staff, perhaps even too attentive. Always a reasonably priced choice for wine of the month 7.50SFR for 200ml: this is Switzerland. Cold buffet for appetisers with massive choice. 3 or 4 pasta, 3 risotto, 6 or so meat entrees , 10 pizza choices. Pleasant surroundings, cosy even on the most bitter evenings. Do not be put... More

A short walk from the hotel, and then an excellent place to eat. Good starter followed by veal liver; never had better, and never allowed them at home! Friendly and efficient service too. If I find myself in Basel again, I will certainly come again. A travelling medic.

I went there after I looked at the excellent reviews on trip advisor. It was so disappointing. The buffet starters were stale and my main course of spaghetti vongole was just ordinary with some tomato sauce that tasted like it was straight out of a tin. The spaghetti itself wasn't fresh although the Clams were ok.

I came here with 2 coworkers. The atmosphere was very comfortable and welcoming! The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was also very delicious. If I am ever in Basel again I will definitely go back here and I recommend it to anyone in Basel.
