Robiolina provided an outstanding dining experience. My wife and I were there to celebrate Father's Day. The service was friendly and efficient, the menu was engaging and our food was phenomenal. The menu had an impressive balance of choices. For an appetizer, we ordered Prosciutto w/Robiola cheese. My wife found an excellent red wine choice and was very pleased with it's taste. We each ordered a salad. Mine had small rings of delicately fried calamari, with micro-greens, red onion, candied pine nuts and citrus dressing. My wife had had the tri-colored salad w/goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, and arugula. They were both fresh & succulent with a very pleasing presentation. For main courses, my wife ordered pan-seared duck breast w/blueberry reduction sauce, fresh mixed vegetables, and garlic mash potatoes. I begged for a taste, it was amazing!
I am a traditionalist. I ordered the Fettuccine Bolognese. A proper Bolognese sauce is much more than cooked meat tossed into tomato sauce and Robiolina's did not disappoint! The sauce and fresh fettuccine was "yumtastic." Both my wife and I don't usually consume all of the appetizer, all of our salad, and all of our main course. Everything, including the relaxed atmosphere, was so wonderful, we ate every bite. For good measure, we shared a Creme Brulee, which was beautifully presented and a great finale to our meal.
Robiolina's is a true gem. Highly recommended!
The service was excellent and the food delicious! We will definitely dine with them again!
He and I went once many months ago and enjoyed it so much that we wanted to bring the whole family. So, we celebrated my husband's birthday & Father's Day, which fell on the same day this year. The food did not disappoint. We shared the appetizers and each other's entree. And we loved them all!
We also love that it's not corporate owned but a small business.
My family has dined here numerous times and it never disappoints. The food is amazing and the weekly specials are always terrific. This is by far the best Italian Restaurant in the Stafford/Fredericksburg area.
As always, Robiolia's food and service were outstanding. LOVE being able to support a non-chain restaurant in Stafford.
Freshly prepared entree was hot, and very tasty. The menu was extensive and diverse. Dessert was fabulous.
Great food, wonderful service - and they allowed us to take our time with no rush.
In Stafford? Eat here! We missed Robiolina last time we were in town - big mistake! Rigatoni, calamari, grilled Caesar salad, di Mare, ricotta cheese cake are all must haves.
Our food was delicious and good portions for the money. The staff was great and worked very well together. Our server was very attentive, polite and quick. Overall our experience was excellent.
Service and food was not up to par for this visit.
Our server was amazing! We had our wedding party join us for dinner after our small ceremony and it was awesome. Great food and great service! Thank you!
Food was good and at a good value but don't believe the restaurant was staffed to support the crowd that it received. Too bad, I enjoy coming here but valentines day was the busiest I have seen the restaurant and the wait on the food was very excessive.
Overall, a very pleasant experience...and the food was outstanding. Although the waiter was attentive, it did take quite a long time for the main course to be delivered (about 1 hour after ordering). I realize the restaurant prepares the dish when ordered, and basically from scratch (we were told). That, coupled with the fact that it was Valentine's Day, contributed to the delay. I still believe the experience was quite nice, overall, but be prepared to wait a while for main dishes to be served. In the meantime, their salads were absolutely delicious...make sure you order one to help offset the wait time for the main meal.
A very pleasant surprise !! Thoroughly enjoyed the Valentines Day specials... This was our first time there, and we’ll be back !!
Great food with a nice varied selection. Very good services. This was our third visit and we will be back for more.
Great food, everybody should try it.
We had a wonderful experience there. Service was excellent as was the food. We would highly recommend others to try this great dining experience.
Food was delicious. Enjoy the evening. Will come back.
My spouse and I have been patrons of Robiolina's for a year. We usually have wonderful service and delicious food. Our last experience was not up to par. My spouse ordered the Veal Marsala, which turned out to be very tough. It seams as though it was overcooked. I had a special - Beef tips. The beef tips were cooked nicely and were very tender; however, the gravy that was put over them was very thick. The mashed potatoes that we both had were thin and watery. I hope this was just a bad night for the cook, because normally the food is delicious.
Great Food and atmosphere! I highly recommend any one who loves Italian food to come and try this place out. You won't be dissapointed!
The food is fresh and taste great! The staff is so helpful and attentive. I will be going back soon!
OMG! The Calamari, grilled Caesar salad, lamb shank, etc. was spectacular! Thank you very much for the wonderful evening!!
Very delicious meal.. Wait staff was nice and prompt food was outstanding!
New Year’s Eve dinner
Ate dinner with my family and as always the service and food is 5 stars. Their risotto of the day is always my choice because it is excellent. We enjoy their selection of wines and their homemade limoncello is outstanding.
Without a doubt, the BEST restaurant in Stafford.
Excellent food and outstanding service. Truly a diamond in the rough. Put a sign up!
Excellent food and service. Took my wife here for our anniversary. It was our first visit but definitely not the last!
Robiolina is one of our new favorite restaurants in Stafford, Va. My husband and I love Italian Food and we especially love the intimate setting and atmosphere at Robiolina. We just recently had dinner there to celebrate my husband's birthday. My husband got the Lamb Shank and it was so tender it literally fell off the bone. I got the Risotto of the Day and it was outstanding as well. Even our 16 year old daughter loves eating here. It was a nice surprise when they brought us out a Tiramisu with a candle in it to wish my husband a happy birthday. We will continue to frequent this establishment because the food is excellent and they have a nice selection of wines that you can order with your meal.
We love the food and staff. They have great selections and we will continue going back.
Excellent food and service
A rare find in Stafford. Outstanding restaurant—service and food was superb. Will definitely return
Fantastic meal and service. Great experience from beginning to in.
Our family and friends, 12 in all (and feom all over the US), had gathered for a funeral the next day at nearby Quantico National Cemetery. From an ever-changing number on the reservation to late arrivals, the staff could not have been more accommodating. And tbough the restaurant is an a small strip mall in an area lined with fast food chains and franchise restaurants, Robiolina serves housemade pasta, fresh seafood, artful salads and daily specials with flair. There are vegetarian and gluten-free pasta options (even a whole wheat pasta.
The wine list was moderate in size but with decent choices, especially for this region, and the full bar happily served one family member’s progressively more tailored series of cocktails.
On top of all that, the entrees (with the exception of some steak cut) were in the $18-$25 range, a third less than what we’re used to in California, with larger portions. Including tax and service, appetizers, entrees and probably about 18 alcoholic beverages, plus several coffees and soft drinks, our bill for the party of 12 was about $500 and well worth it.
Grazie, Robiolina, for making a sad time more easy with a delicious dinner and caring service!
Food excellent as always, I just hope more people will start coming here because we don’t have many restaurants that serve this quality of food on Stafford.
The location, food and ambiance were great. The risotto was delicious.
I can't say enough good things about Robiolina. The food is fabulous, very decently priced and they have a wonderful staff who are friendly. Every time I eat there, I enjoy my meal even more. I love that they have weekly Chef specials to choose from. Robiolina is by far my husband and my favorite place to eat for Italian cuisine. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Everything was wonderful—food, service, atmosphere, price. I would definitely recommend!
On recommendation of the waitress I had the Rissoto special (with lump crab meat) and my wife had the grilled pork chop in Marsala sauce. Mine was very good and my wife's was excellent.
We expected the cost to be quite expensive and, pleasingly, the bill was moderate. Note that we did not order alcohol, even though they have a full bar service.
Robiolina is rated 4.7 stars by 112 OpenTable diners.
