Risotto is not to be missed, Caprese salad is the best around, stuffed banana peppers and baked clams are tops. Large bar for waiting, reservations are recommended on week-ends as it fills quickly.... More

Been here several times and never disappointed. In fact booked our daughter's baby shower here and all the guests raved at the great service and delicious food. Rocco is there often and takes a very hand's on approach to his restaurant. The server's are friendly and efficient.

Our group chose Rocco's for dinner and I was very impressed. I arrived early so sat at the bar waiting for the others. The staff was very friendly and the beer was very cold. Once seated, the service was excellent, but the food was amazing. Portion size was excellent. I ordered the sausage and peppers dish - best I have... More

Everytime we go there the hostesses are busy checking their inventory at the desk and completely ignore you for an unseemly amount of time. We went there for my birthday with the family and were seated next to the chair rail under the menu board, when my husband got up to leave his leather jacket caught on a sliver on... More

If you're looking for the best tasting Italian food anywhere, this is the place for you. Rocco's family has a long-standing reputation for fine dining Italian style. They will feed you more excellent food than you can finish and not make you go into the savings account to do it. The wine offering is great and the mixed drinks have... More
