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!

We have been visiting our son and family in Walnut Creek for the past five years and count ourselves very lucky that such a good quality Italian restaurant is within walking distance of his home. We visit at least once a week when we are there, our four year old granddaughter's face lights up when we mention a visit to... More

One of my family's favorite Italian restaurant. The service is wonderful and the kitchen prepares your meal pretty quickly. While waiting for your meal , one can test their knowledge in a variety of questions with a game of Trivial Pursuit that is a part of the table setting. Our family favorite appetizer is bruschetta. The bread is toasted to... More

I grew up in NYC and my husband in Philadelphia. We are self-proclaimed pizza mavens. Traveling for business or pleasure we enjoy pizza, beer and locals who enjoy their home-town teams. There is a pleasant aroma in this fast-paced place which signals your mind that this is going to be a treat for your senses as well as your pocket... More

With few immediate choices for local residents and workers, Rocco's doesn't dissapoint if mediocre cuisine is acceptable to you. First the positives. The dining atmosphere is comfortable and the sports bar is a good place to watch a game. The prices are reasonable. Okay, that about does it for positive. The pizza is bland. The crust has no flavor and... More
