He made his debut with Monza in Serie C1 in the 1987-88 season. After 6 seasons (for a total of 135 appearances and 20 goals), he passes to Fiorentina (1993-94 just dropped in Serie B) making an important contribution to the prompt return to Serie A. The following year, always with the purple team , makes his debut in the top flight, even if his first goal in A must wait until 1995/96. Robbiati in these years rarely finds himself starting, but it is equally indispensable to the purple team for its ability to enter the bench and be decisive, a feature that will earn him the nickname "Sant'Anselmo da Lecco". In all he will collect 160 appearances and 27 goals with the team from Florence, before moving to Napoli in the 1999/00 season. Memorable his goal in Prague against Sparta in the Cup Winners' Cup in 1997 which gives a painful qualification to the lilies. The following year he was bought by Inter, who preferred to send him on loan first to Perugia and then again to Fiorentina. He will not even collect a presence in the league with the Nerazzurri shirt. Robbiati later found space in Ancona, Grosseto, Monza and Como to land at Figline currently in Lega Pro Second Division (the former C2 series) with Enrico Chiesa. On January 21, 2009 he finally decided, at the age of 39, to hang his boots on the nail, becoming assistant coach of Figline. He will remain in the Gialloblù technical staff as second coach for the 2009-2010 season, this time, however, under the guidance of the neo-coach Moreno Torricelli.
