We went to Berta's on a Monday night with a group of six. The food was excellent with good sized portions served to us. The net result was a great meal offered at a great value. Peter, the waiter was very congenial and offered numerous suggestions regarding each of the offerings. We ate at a leisurely pace, which afforded the... More

After some time away from Berta's, we were back there again last night for dinner and had our usual wonderful experience. The food was great, service efficient and friendly as usual and the atmosphere as nice as always. Joe and Peter make the greatest martinis! No shorting like many places do (i.e. big glass half full). Veal very tender and... More

You will have trouble finding the restaurant, but its well worth the search. Its hidden in time, feels like your walking back in time. The Monday and Tuesday and Thursday specials are well worth the trip.(Cash only don't forget like I did the first time) The food is great, the wine is amazing.

Our visit to Bertas exceeded our expectations. It was warm and inviting and reminded us of what we were missing in a restaurant since all these chains have taken over the restaurant world. For the people who complained about the decor and menu being out dated I suggest you go to the Olive Garden because the menu and decor is... More

We had been given a gift certificate to Berta's and decided to use it this evening. It was our first time at this restaurant, and we really enjoyed the evening. It was a step back in time that reminded us of the way dinner used be served in restaurants. It started with a lovely crudité along with a bread basket... More

The menu never changes. It gets old after a few dining experiences there. The appetizers are good but they never change and they serve a really good fried farina. I noticed that some people get more of the fried farina than other tables. I think they choose locals that go there over others.

We have been going to this restaurant intermittently for 45 years! What a total disappointment. High prices, mediocre food and very poor service although our waiter...THE ONLY WAITER....really tried. There were 38 diners, one waiter, and the owners doing kitchen, bar and bussing! And not one word of apology from the owners! Sorry we won't be back nor will some... More

Warmly greeted by the owner upon our arrival. Great seeing Joe a longtime waiter there. Dinner was delicious. We were not rushed. Always nicely decorated for the holidays. Parking is great. We will be back soon.

Since we no longer live in the area, this is the first restaurant we visit whenever we come back to visit. Never are we disappointed. And, this visit was no exception. The food was as good as remembered, which is fabulous, and the wine selection outstanding. I think we'll go back a few more times over the next couple of... More

We have been going to Bertas for years and it never misses. Peter, the chef, is wonderful. The food is cooked to perfection. The service is delightful. You feel like a member of the family. It is warm and inviting. Their wine list is extensive and they are very knowledgeable about wines. I highly recommend this restaurant.
