Awesome

What a restaurant and specifically what an interior! Specially the scooter overhead on ceiling. Just loved it. Loved their pesto pasta. I've never tasted pesto like Rocco's in my life. Would definitely like to visit whenever in walnut creek. Visited here in December 2014.

The night before Thanksgiving and the place was very crowded, but we were able to get a table after just a few minutes. By the size of the line for pizza I am assuming it is quite popular. I had linguini and clams in white winer sauce. It was loaded with clams and enough pasta to have another day. Service... More

Every time we have come here it is crowded and often have to wait a few minutes for a table...worth it. On one side a bar with tvs and tables and on the other side all tables. They are busy but very friendly, the service is very good and the menu is large. All the meals we had were good.... More

Hungry for a chewy, slice of delicious pizza? There is a reason it is often crowded- come early to avoid the crowd! There are all kinds of pasta and other offerings. We always get a pitcher of beer, house salad and the dominator-very meaty pizza! Bring your appetite and friends to eat and enjoy!
