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

Rocco's has new owners. They continue to amaze me. Fabulous fried clams! Nice bar with peanuts! Sandwiches are very good, with fresh salads.

I have been coming here for several years, and the food at Rocco's is always good. I have never had a bad meal here. I usually get the salad - Hail Rocco salad (caesar salad with eggplant) is my favorite. The service is usually pretty decent, too. Get the hot potato chips - they are awesome.

Our friend suggested Rocco's. It was our first visit. We were seated at the front window with a view of East Center St. Very nice downtown spot. Started with a Black Russian, White Russian, and a Sam Adams. Very friendly and helpful waitress. We took our usual time looking over the menu and catching up with our friend. Finally our... More
