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

I ate lunch here in November, 2013. The food, as always, is good. Also very reasonably priced. The service was slow. It took a while for the waitress to even acknowledge us, then my tea glass was more empty than full for most of the meal. I would return here, but just be careful if you are limited on time.

Our trip to California to visit family was very enjoyable as was the evening at Rocco's. It seems to be a well known place and was very busy even on a week night. It's definitely family friendly as evidenced by the youngsters that night. The pizza was great-large portions of toppings on a crust we enjoyed and at a reasonable... More

Called in for a take out order. The pizza I ordered was a large peperoni, Italian sausage, and fresh garlic, well done crust. It was very good as usual. 20 minutes, was ready when I got there.
