Very good food. We all had the linguine and clam sauce - delicious. All appetizers were excellent. The bartender was wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable. The host staff were cold and uncaring. We did not have reservations so they would not seat us even though they had available tables the whole time we sat at the bar. They even had a... More

We had reservations at 8 for five people. We were seated at 8:30. The food was wonderful: we had the pizza if the day with chicken sausage, a cheese and pepperoni pizza, and several pasta dinners. The fried mozzarella was a Tate starter. The Negroni was top notch. Our server was uninterested anti very helpful. The restaurant was very loud.... More

If you want Italian - this is the place to go!! This restaurant is in an interesting neighborhood but it is the destination for amazing food.The restaurant is VERY small... Make reservations!

My wife and I have eaten dinner here twice and it was excellent both times. I got a delicious Caesar salad as my appetizer and the slow cooked pork both times. The pork is delicious with a slightly tangy sauce. It came with rapini cooked in garlic. My favorite part of the dish is the deep fried polenta. It is... More

We tried Rocco’s for the first time for a small family celebration. Started by visiting their website where it provides information on reservations and parking. Rocco's is a small place (13 tables) and small bar area. Even though it is small I did not feel cramped and overall with most of the tables occupied the chatter was quiet. My husband... More

This is the best restaurant in Rochester. What else is there to say? It's hard to make a reservation, but you can, and you should. It's great food, with a rotating cast of specials, and a phenomenal list of basics. The charred bread is to die for, as is the dessert budino. The salads are always out of the world,... More

We went for our fourth time, last night and were not disappointed. Had a friend, who also loved it. Excellent salads, great main courses. One person had the broiled fish special and it was terrific. The other had the slow cooked pork which was outstanding. Had the pizza for the first time and it was wonderful. It's nice that they... More

When you are in the mood for great Italian food Rocco is the place to go. The food is very flavorful, and the drinks are amazing. It is a very romantic place to go for dinner, and I always feel so cozy and comfortable in the dining room. You can tell they really care about all the details of the... More

Great flavorful food, wide range of delicious wines, wonderful waitstaff, friendly bartender, good vibe from our fellow diners makes for an enjoyable experience every time we have gone to Rocco. Would specifically recommend the ricotta appetizer, any of the pizza's, the fennel salad and the boudino. In the summer a great little outdoor space for dining and if we don't... More
