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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
