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

I visited Rocco's with Friends on Saturday night. I ordered The garden salad, chicken orzo soup and the chicken picatta. This wasn't my first trip as my friends and I eat out most Saturday night and Rocco's is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The salad was fresh and the dressing tasty. 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.

OK, the Chicken Piccata was fine. Not extraordinary, but no complaints. The service, however, was palpably sluggish. I admit I was in a hurry, but it took a while to get seated, although there was no line; the waitress had a trainee in tow, and it took a bit too long to get the check. There wasn't anything to get... More

I'm glad to have the opportunity to review Rocco's. I think I've reviewed them before, but here goes again. First of all, let me say that Rocco's has the best fried clams around. The sad part is that they usually seem to be out of them as was the case tonight. I told our wait person tonight that if they... More
