Excellent Pizza and great family style atmosphere

Walking into this place almost feels like you are walking into a family dining room. The pizza, service and atmosphere was excellent. Add Basil to the Deluxe Pizza and you won't be dissapointed!

Truly a pizza and pasta joint. A favourite for Notre Dame students and locals. The service is great and attentive. The menu varied. The recommendations excellent. The food.... well it is always about the food: outstanding. The flavours, the combinations, the portions outstanding. Is this fine dining? Not a chance. Would I return, absolutely. A comfortable place for outstanding comfort... More

This is one of my favorite places to grab a pie from when I'm in the SB area. The pizza is amazing. You won't be disappointed. I usually take my food to go but the atmosphere of the restaurant seems to be pretty good.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I had very high expectations for this restaurant. We wanted to try a local favorite based on the reviews. The interior was clean and there was ample parking during busy weekend dinner time. There is an old Italian charm inside. It was obvious that this is a local favorite, the servers knew a... More

Some of the best pizza I have had outside of NYC. Love the red and white checkered table cloths. Lots of ND memorabilia. Packed when ND has a home football games but otherwise not too bad. A local institution.

This was recommended to us by long time South Bend residents and they were so right. You're greeted warmly by the owners as you arrive, the thin crust pizza with homemade sausage is delicious and the wait staff are friendly and efficient. Clearly a place where friends and family gather to enjoy each other's company as well as good food.

Excellent thin, hand-tossed pizza, from the southern Italy, Calabria area! Family recipe for sure! Pastas are great & my husband LOVES their hot sandwiches! Can't go wrong with the simple italian decor accented with many Notre Dame personalities, like Regis Philbin who has been to Rocco's numerous times! May have a wait & definitely call for reservations on game days... More
