Rocco's Rocks

We were 4 cousins getting together and catching up which would require a place that welcomed long, lazy lunch patrons. We found it. The atmosphere has that dark wood warm feeling that served us well on a cold and rainy afternoon. But the two outstanding things about Rocco's are the food and... read more

Visit Rocco's weekly and have never had a bad meal. There specials are very good and usually enough to take home some for lunch the next day. The sandwiches, grinders and meal are consistently good, Worth the trip to eat there.

The chicken orzo soup was chock... More

Read many positive review about Roccos and was very surprised at the lack of effort from the wait staff. Food was very good, but I have never had an Italian meal where bread was not offered. 8:00 on a Saturday night and they were cleaning up to close. Disappointing.

We go to Manchester CT once or twice a year to visit very close friends. Not my favorite lunch place but it's very centrally located and very popular with the locals. The pizzas at every big and there are some really eclectic options.

I often visit family in Manchester and tend to end up at chain restaurants. My sister-in-law suggested we try Rocco's and I was very glad that she did. A whole group of us went, including a 2 year old. We ordered our food and while waiting the 2 year old a a bit of a tantrum and spilt someone's wine... More

I had the Chicken Chesterfield special. I thoroughly enjoyed it in the restaurant. There was plenty to take home. I thoroughly enjoyed it again at home as well.

Wouldn't allow us to sub mashed potatoes for pasta. And yes, there are mashed potatoes on the menu. Food quality is fair.
