Another Little Gem

Definitely need a reservation. We were walk in but were lucky enough to get a high top at the bar. Started with an appetizer of banana peppers stuffed with loose Italian sausage, topped with melted cheese and marinara sauce. A meal in itself.

We come here often I think it's about the best Italian in the area it's wise to get a reservation but we have come in later in the evening and not waited long. I always have the specials and have NEVER been disappointed. I think for the amount of food you get the prices are extremely reasonable. Tonight's special was... More

The food was very expensive for what we received. It also was tasteless. We had hear good things but were very disappointed. The wait staff seemed to pay attention to people who were regulars to the detriment of new customers. We were ignored for long periods of time. I don't think we will return..

We made reservations for a table for six, our server was very friendly, she informed us of the specials and for the rest of the evening she took very good care of us. Our meals were spectacular, everything was flavorful and fresh. Their tiramisu is probably in my opinion the best one I've had so far, so light and tasty.... More

Rocco's Little Italy is just that. A little bit of Italy located in Tinley Park. The food is exceptional, the menu displays classic italian cuisine. There is not an item on the menu that is not scrumptious. The Wait staff are all friendly and explains in detail the specials for the day. The bus boys are fast and ready if... More

We had stopped in earlier in the week without a reservation, and was told the wait would be 1-1.5 hours. I don't wait to pay for something, so hubby reserved a table for Friday night. He ordered one of the specials - grouper - which he claimed tasted like lobster. It was richly prepared with a white wine/lemon cause wutg... More

Reservations a must unless you want to wait. Food is very good. Dishes are ample portions. Service and staff were friendly. Can get pretty noisy on a weekend due to the crowds.

Great food, good atmosphere and I recommend getting a reservation because it gets crowded on Thursdays and weekends.

Great lunch and dinner place, good variety of Italian dishes I had the Chicken Parmesan, which was very good. Service was friendly, no rush, and prices were very reasonable. A very nice meal will be had.

This is a must place to visit. I was on a business trip and ate here at the suggestion of one of my customers who is a local. The food was excellent, portions were ample and very tasty. The wait staff were both friendly and extremely attentive. I don't think that you can possibly go wrong if you choose to... More
