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..

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

Rocco's isn't the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant, but the food at Rocco's is very close! Everything is authentic Italian, and EXCELLENT!!! Portions are large and extremely reasonable. You'll have plenty to enjoy again at home. Highly recommend the Lasagne. It's the only place that makes a great cheese lasagne and you have your choice of meat... More

The last time I was at Rocco's was about 5 years ago and I thought it was wonderful. Recently we decided to return. We had the grilled calamari which was flavorful and tender. I had a grilled chicken breast salad that was ok. I have several food allergies and this was the best choice. My husband had the Chicken Vesuvio... More
